Diablo III Patched in Americas

The Diablo III Website has word that the new version 1.0.3 patch is now live for the action/RPG sequel in the Americas, offering the complete patch notes explaining what it does. There's a story on Kotaku (thanks nin) based on forum posts suggesting there is a problem collecting XP on the digital editions after patching. We have not been able to replicate this here, but the solution suggested in the forums is that this is fixed by changing your password if this happens to you.

Blizzard treats this game like WoW, and they expect people to put up with their bipolar ups-and-downs of damages and costs heaving high and low.

They release an unpolished beta, and use the public as free testers.

Don't want to upgrade to latest version? Want to keep previous version and stick to LAN play, perhaps?

Hahaha. You're fucked, sir.

P.S. this is just the beginning of failure cascade that will strike down SAAS (software as a service) model. The company where I work thinks SAAS is the future, but it is not. It is an old idea with the same problems that cannot be eliminated, and it will die off, and everyone who embraces it fully will die with it.

Eventually, even Blizzard.

I recall the same complete outrage when blizzard nerfed corpse explosion in D2 soon after release. I do get that it's annoying, but in the end I believe you get a better game out of it.
