Do you know how difficult it is to launch a project of this magnitude? You think every problem in the world can be solved by throwing money at it? Just because there's a problem, then there must be something sinister behind it? It's overwhelmingly negative attitudes like this, that every move a large company makes is an attempt to personally fuck you, that reeks of self entitlement.

I've helped overhaul banking systems, the california state lottery, and a lot of other *huge* IT projects that involved extensive data centers. I give Diablo 3's launch... oh... 6.5/10. They've shown significant improvement very fast, and I'll give them that.

Having said that, I know of at least a score of people I've personally worked with who would be capable of gearing up for a launch like this with minimal hiccups. The problem is, that costs money, real money, up front for infrastructure and for talent. The reason why we're seeing these problems is that someone high up decided that the cost to benefit ratio wasn't worth doing it right, and that's just a fact about the industry.
