Blizzard has some very successful launch days under it's belt. D3 will be no different, I have no worries and will be playing right when the servers come up.

But they haven't seen a force like the Diablo fans for a loooooooooong time devil.gif

I won't even be playing until two or three days after launch, so this has no impact on me tongue.gif

Gotta keep life in perspective. Work a day and earn 315 dollars and play 3 hours afterwards, or play 12 hours and earn zilch by calling out of work.

At least, that's what I tell myself lol.

they were a ton of fun, I still go back and hack my way through diablo and the hellfire expansion. Diablo 2 really brought the online play and the story was great as well.
