Except it's like it isn't, since only very few seem to be able to enter. (NOT) fun fact: I've been hammering my keyboard typing my password in like a machine for thirty minutes straight (and counting), and I am still not in. Amused, my partner walks to her computer, tries for no more than 4 minutes, gets in, and is now happily playing while smirking and giggling at my queued ass.

Honestly, yes. I was expecting queues at worst. But absolute inability to get in? No.

Having played MMOG's since the start of UO I am now so jaded that you could mount me on a bracelet. I actually think I would miss all the forum fun if it all just 'worked'. My inability to care is further convincing me that I am getting far to old for this.

It's because I played all MMOG's since the start of UO that I was expecting to get in. That was 15 years ago, and since then I haven't been kept out of an authentication login on launch day much. Oh wait, maybe Age of Conan now that I think of it. You know, Funcom and Blizzard, same thing why so serious?

One thing I've learned from just about any Blizzard release/beta/server opening/etc - copy your password so you can just ctrl-V and spam that with the enter key. Much faster than typing a password out

Then you (like me) must know that this is part of the experience! It is customary to navigate to the official forums and threaten to sue then engage in arguments with other frustrated players. I am going to bed, let me know how that turns out  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

A speed run group in Korea has finished it already :)

Quote
A group of Koreans did a speed run and have already finished the game, took 6 hours 25 minutes.

Which is a good sign, 6.5 hours rushing it as fast as they could means it should be a decent length for those of us who play at regular speeds. That was only normal difficulty too.

EDIT: subsequent runs have been much shorter, they've already beaten Hell difficulty and are about to finish Act 1 on Inferno!

Sadly not, or I would have. It's someone in my gaming guild and the forum is protected.

It appears that I have acquired too much old for late night game launches. A friend and I spent 20 mins trying to login and then we both decided we were too tired and gave up!

This morning however I logged in fine :)

I am slightly surprised they are managing to do inferno. The scaling up of health and damage on that difficulty is utterly insane and even though gamers always beat developers I'd thought t would take a couple of days of farming first.

Well, I imagine they'll run into issues towards the end. Blizzard originally made inferno to be as hard in act 1 as it was in act 4, then they decided to make it a more regular curve. So by the time they get to the last act I imagine their under-leveled under-geared speedrun characters will be dying. A lot.

Yeah, I knew there was no way I was doing a 3am est launch.

However, along with "can't stay up any later" of old comes the "wake up a lot earlier and be fine" aspect.   So instead of staying up until 3am and then being dead (In addition to not being able to login) I woke-up at 4:50, got ready for work then played.

Woo, old age!

I feel like falling asleep now and I only stayed up until 1am - I really am a geriatric gamer. I will give it a bloody good go later, if I can login, still not holding out much hope on that front - figure the odds are about the same as Funcom making a game that's fun.

Should be quite a crowded evening here in Europe (7.30pm CET now): we'll see how the login server will handle it. Lots of people probably purchased it this morning or while on their way back home from work, eager to try out the game for the first time.
