Diablo III Patch Rolling Out

The Diablo III Forums have word that Blizzard's action/RPG is currently offline in North America for maintenance as the promised new version 1.04 patch is installed, bringing the new Paragon endgame to the action/RPG sequel (no word on whether this patch will fix the Server Status Page which could be helpful at times like if it worked properly). The post includes the full version 1.04 patch notes to check out while waiting for the game to come back online, which is currently slated for around 4:00 pm EDT today. The European servers are scheduled to start updating tonight and the Asian servers will be patched tomorrow, and this will prevent global play until they are all once again running the same version.

Yeah I don't know anyone who uses it either, and considering xfire is a craptastic crashfest with D3, for most people. That could very well be another reason why it's dropping off, their overlay causes the game to crash.

I thought that was fixed awhile ago and Xfire is a pretty good way to gauge the casual crowd as they are the most likely users. I would never use the software personally but it has millions of users who do so *shrug*. The whole way it got brought up previously was someone said the game was doing really well and pointed to Xfire stats near the launch period as proof. It kind of backfired though because someone else noticed that the player count kept dropping rapidly over time.

To be honest, I doubt there is a source on the 85% number. Except the one that was pulled out of his ass.

Perhaps but no different than the people who say "only forum minorities are unhappy, most people are happily playing" without ever citing anything

The game sold a lot of copies, no one knows for sure how many are still playing. I can only speak anecdotally for friends and family but they have mostly stopped playing for a variety of reasons. I think the 1.1 patch will be the thing that really pulls people back in for awhile, too much other stuff coming out now that conflicts.
