am i like the only 1 who hasn't preordered this game? i'm wondering if maybe i'm screwing myself over by thinking i can go to walmart and grab a copy off the shelf at midnight
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.
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.
Anyways, found this on Reddit. They list a bunch of tips that weren't obvious in the beta.
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.

^^ there are a few very handy tips in there that i didnt come across during the beta
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.
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.
