What happens when impatient Diablo 3 fans worldwide finally get the chance to play the game on release day? The mad rush of gamers scrambling to log on to Blizzard's inadequate launch servers caused massive connection problems, with countless players getting repeated error messages or getting disconnected. Blizzard is hard at work to setup new servers to handle the immense load, but it remains to be seen if it's enough to get thousands of copies activated or create player characters, let alone avoid getting disconnected. "The servers and websites are live, and we recommend that if you're encountering any issues you first visit battle.net/support for possible solutions, as well as the tech support and bug report forums at Diablo3.com," advised Blizzard in an updated statement. Had a less stringent activation method been implemented, Diablo 3's online launch problems may have been averted, but hopefully Blizzard gets this whole mess sorted out fast. How's your own Diablo 3 experience going so far?
