While I'm not burdened by this, I know many people with download caps per month are going to be agitated, especially when multiple players live together. I'd rather pay half price for what I get at launch and then pay the rest when I actually see some content. Seriously, this is why I missed gaming from years ago. No patches, no DLC; get it right the first time or your sales and reviews will be trash. I don't like promises of future content when I'm already sick of the gold buying scheme that D3 has become even before launch.

Glad to hear the arena pvp is a blast smile.gif

Yeah I'm going to stay away from the RMAH. Not even going to look at it until way after launch. Want to keep crazy good items as surprises smile.gif

That's what I'm wondering too. One of the few reasons I stopped playing D2, had a couple of accounts expire due to not having internet for a while. Log in and chars all said expired... horrible sight.

Yes yes, we all got screwed over by that, but back then, Blizzard was still a pretty small / medium company, you know?

And millions of characters were kept server side to ensure no one could cheat as easily as they did in Diablo 1...sure, it still happened, but was alot harder. But this hammered Blizzard and they had such massive storage, they couldn't keep them all, or soon they'd have no room, or have to buy more storage.

Older MMO's did this as well. Today Blizzard has quite alot of funds, and as such, has no need to do this. They don't do it in StarCraft II, and they did it in the original StarCraft, so I see good reason to believe the 90 day limit rule is done.

Yeah. Although I can see why they do it. Like in a lot of F2P MMORPG's. People get all the best names within the first week and either quit or just don't use the characters, then you're left with putting numbers or i/x in your name and it's a bit annoying. So with them expiring it free's up names that aren't in use... But at the same time, it is a bit annoying. They could always put a level cap on the expiration for situations like above, for people that just take a name to 'possibly' use it in the near future but never do.

You guys gotta remember, D2 didn't have a char limit did it?

D3, the 60 dollar game, has 10 per section (us west, EU, etc) I think.

And yeah this isn't the turn of the millennium, we have 2TB sized hard disks tongue.gif

To clarify on this, names are not unique. to my knowledge.

In game, you see people by their battle tags, which are not unique either. As they have numbers after them.

They were last I played. Two people couldn't have the same name.

And I believe last I played they even had a char limit as well, which I think was also 10-12.

Hrmm... Here is a screenshot:
338

As you can see here, I made 3 characters with the name Conan, 7 slots remaining.

So 10 character slots, and duplicate names.

And yes, 12 letter limit in names.
