      It's $10, and you can download it anytime.

      I need to get Warcraft 3, haven't played that since the day it came out.

      Yeah...don't do that dude. Its 5 dollars at gamestop, go do it...MEOW. Or just do it on amazon. No reason this day and age with a game of this magnitude why a true enthusiast shouldn't pre order. Or if you don't care about the box, buy it online and pre install it to play at midnight from Blizzard directly.

      Or just buy it digitally from Blizzard. My copy is already downloaded, ready to be installed.

      just log in and buy a digi copy. i usually want a disk for most things but having it on your battlle.net account means its never going away, looking for the account key (like i've done for L4D many times for my gf)

      no waiting in lines fromt 8-12, at 12 im just going to start the download of the last bit of info go back to sleep wake up at 6 for work and see if i can log in. 99% sure the servers will be buggy for the start. if not after work ill be on enjoying the game. just have to keep off the fan sites.

      i would get the digital copy but i already have a spot reserved on my shelf for the D3 box to go next to my D1, D1:Hellfire, D2 and D2:LoD boxes

      i think my best option will be to pre-order at gamestop or bestbuy and pickup sometime around 8am instead of midnight. at least that way i can get a good nights sleep and still avoid the long line.

      If you try to run the client installer before May 15th it specifically says why it won't run...

      Keep in mind that even if you bought a retail copy with a disk the game will be added to your battle.net account for download anytime/anywhere.

      I have a friend with a 7 year old PC that was playing in the Beta. I'm sure it was a bit choppy for him, but he did it.

      You can head over to the Computer Forum, or Reddit/BuildaPC and get something new for cheap.

      word! i preordered last night, asked gamestop if i HAVE to pick it up that night or if i can get it the next morning and they said either one is fine. so i'll probably make that decision of 'waiting in line but getting d3' vs. 'sleeping' on the night of the release.

      You have 2 days to pick up your pre-order before they can sell it to the general public. You won't lose your deposit, they will can just sell your copy being held as of that point.

      I'll definitely play at Midnight. Taking the 15th off. But I'll probably only play for an hour or two, and then wake up at 9am and put in some real time.

      This is of course assuming the servers aren't melting at 12am. If they are I'm goin to bed.

      I'm off the 17th and 18th but my wife wants to go down to her parent's house on the 18th for a long weekend.

      We would normally go the next weekend (Labor Day) but I guess at least by going a week early we'll avoid all the crowds and traffic on 95.

      Same. I heard that the servers won't be up till midnight PST/3am EST, where I'm at. If it was a Friday, maybe, but definitely not on a weekend.

      Anyways, found this on Reddit. They list a bunch of tips that weren't obvious in the beta.

      http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comme...using_over_an/

      One thing I didn't know was elective mode. Basically, it allows you to equip any 4 skills from any groups, rather than the standard stuff where you're stuck with one skill per group.

      Elective Mode?

      Thanks for the link, I love the Diablo subreddit theme.

      I've been debating taking the 15th off, I hesitate because I worry about the servers being down a lot. I might just take the afternoon off.

      Right now I'm stuck between wanting to start with either the Wizard, Witch Doctor or Demon Hunter.

      IIRC the Starcraft 2 launch was without issue. I got on right at midnight and didn't have any problems. So I'm hopeful that this will be a relatively smooth launch.

      i agree, hopefully they got enough figured out during the open beta so they can avoid issues on the 15th. i did, however, just make the connection (thanks to someone a few posts up mentioning it) that the servers are going live at midnight PDT, which means 2am for me. so i think i'll sleep that night and wake up in the a.m. instead to go pickup my reserved copy at gamestop and play

      so......close...to.......the....fire

      during beta i woke up saturday morning at 8 am when GF went to work to try and get some hours in while she was working. servers were dead. so instead i went and did the cleaning laundry and gym all things i wasnt going to do. at 11 oclock my bro sends me a text servers are up and jump in for a few hours.

      midnight play is not something ill do. mostly just DL the last of the install. see if it logs me in and if yes or no doesnt matter right back to sleep.

      its not like im going to miss out on not playing at midnight. just gotta stay of the diablo fan sites and so forth for the spoilers. plus my run throughs wont be hindered by anyone else but myself.
