Oh believe me, ArenaNet already did... the first beta weekend of GW2, only a handful of people were actually able to play due to login issues and lag in general.

Amazon has 2 rolling back-ends...So, when they update one, or a new product, they actually roll it live while the other gets rotated...They do maintenance when that happens as well.

I actually know what their cost is because we helped design it and quite frankly, that's not in Blizzard's budget (Not even joking).

I don't understand why Blizzard isn't rolling updates region-based...I think it's because they haven't actually split the regions yet but, in terms of actual downtime...It's necessary when you add physical hardware.

The racks, themselves are "PNP" but, the software, is not...

Essentially, you have to see D3 as a MMO (Right now)...They're using a new base, it's new tech...It's actually working wonderfully...But, that aside, it's going to have MMO updates.

Blizzard can roll out live hotfixes whenever they want...They've already done that a number of times...But, in regards to security, especially, they have to bring down the network to add physical hardware.

I think they should be doing it region by region but, overall, they're not doing a half bad job.

Give it up Masked. There are people out there that due to whatever dumb personal reasons, refuse to listen to reason and logic or refuse to comprehend it. They just know they are unhappy and that is all they cared about.

Right now, I have about 15% and I've found 3 legendaries in Hell...In fact, I blazed through all of nightmare last night...Ended up with about 30 rares, 2 legendaries and a ton of blues...Obviously I need more but, I was waiting till 60 to really amass MF.

It's just so disheartening, especially here, that some people choose to be so ignorant to the modern world.

"My single player game doesn't work because the network is down"...Duh, stupid, it's not a single player game.

I understand and accept it on the D3 forums...I get it...But, here?

Meh, you're right ~ Think I'm just going to give up explaining it...I have 0 issues answering Q's about it considering I'm good friends with their SSA and SSSA...So, if you have legitimate questions, I can push them forward...but, I'm going to stop "fighting" the ignorance.

When I found my first 2, it was probably 0. The most recent one I found (Logan's Claw) was at 75% MF due to 5 stacks of Valor.

Getting pretty sick of inferno....I've got enough gear to almost finish act 2 but the whole "difficultly" is just plain stupid on blizzards part....all they've done is grabbed hell elites, added 1 extra ability, timed their hp by x10 and how hard they hit by x10....so if you get near a elite, your dead....so you have to kite it around for ages/wait till cooldowns are up/die 10+ times to even kill it. Stupid, no skill involved, just a hard gear check.

This video sums it up nicely.
