    NO skeleton king isnt last boss of act 1.Last boss of act one could be that one was shown in first gameplay video at bizzcon in 2010 or something.

    Im guessing you've tried a few times?

    For me the patcher would get in a weird state, and the patch percent download would get stuck. if i closed it then reopened it was usually ok.

    For what? It's a load test. The open beta was free.

    i pre-ordered. i would have thought that was obvious. load test or not single player lag is unacceptable.

    Well you're still on the servers. I wouldn't be concerned for full release. Starcraft 2 had a load test I believe. It was fine on release.
    digibucc says thanks.

    Played the game, spent a long time downloading. No lag, logged in fine.
    Played the barbarian until the end.
    Didn't really care for the game.
    Oh yeah, saw the usual auction house gouging that is so typiccal of online auctions. Guess some things never change.

    To everyone who enjoys the game: Have fun. This is just not my cup of tea. :)

    Played last night all the up to lvl 10 and killed the skeleton king and got kicked out of the servers: had to sleep anyways so no biggie.

    Today, i'm having problems logging on but when i finally succeeded, i was still @ lvl 10 but i had to start over ??? Huh???

    EDIT

    Playing the game windowed @ 2560 by 1440 ... WOW ... AWESOME ..., IMO: way better then Diablo II.

    If the game is fun and the story is good I don't have a problem with they "dumbing down" the game.
    After all this is a different game, not "Diablo II 3D" for me the changes are more of a trimming the fat from the game.
    Just saying, when Blizzard change something people go "Y U RUIN DA GMAE", and if they don't they go "Y U NO CHNAGE GAME RAWR".

    Rant aside, they only complain about this game is the pathing especially for melee seems weird, but it looks like it have to do with server latency.
