Can't even get into my account....awesome. Must be on it's knees....
You haven't had fun until the steam beta fucks up your account and you need to get them to unfuck it. In the year that I've had origin and been in the beta I've yet to have that happen...though I've probably jinxed it now.

Impulse was a one-time serial number activation. That was all. Offline ever-after if desired. SteamDRM isn't and never will be until Valve goes shall we say, belly up...like Impulse did.
Odd. My laptop has had steam offline for 230 days, and I play games on there still without going "online."

Btw for those that haven't gotten to it yet, Spoilers: the templars quest is full on ass-raping on T1-3. At the start it's 8-10:3, with each guy hitting for 20-45k/pop. In the second phase it's the same thing except they can crit for 150k, and the inquisitor can crit for 450k. Also the "king" event, is along the same lines. At each 1/4 or 1/3 he'll get an invulnerability shield. But even if you kill all his minions they'll just keep respawning during the entire event. They'll hit for 10-20k/pop.

Oh and the music in the early areas of Act V, awesome. Very awesome. And for anyone curious and didn't know, marquise gems drop right off the start.

I have replaced damn near all gear I had within 20 minutes with each character. The changes are THAT drastic.
About 50% of my wizards gear is still pre 2.0, I haven't found anything else to replace it with, mostly because it was already BiS. I have found a few things, especially rings and had two set items(tal rasha) that were serious upgrades. But for my monk and DH it was just like you said.

All those edits to that message Prez, all in attempt to insult me further. Great job, what an addition to Blues you are.

Yes, #21 says all that needs to be said. Carry on the insults, and remember #21 each time applies.
Well what's funny is, even if those are supposed to be insults...Prez actually added something constructive with his post. You haven't added anything constructive in any of your posts. Actually if I look back in any of your posts, you don't actually add anything useful, insightful, interesting, or in general something worth while.

As such, that leads me to believe you're simply out for whatever little bit of attention you can garner. And that leads me to believe one of two things, either you're exceptionally lonely, or a paid shill for a company that hasn't hit it's bright spot on a product here yet.

Just to toss in as well, not sure for anyone else but I'm seeing a huge number of pools of reflection up on all my characters. In the last 40mins of play. 8 pools, gone from 50 to 58 on my monk in no time flat.

Despite the bitching and moaning, I picked this up for $9 during christmas and it's an okay game. The biggest complaint I'd have is the tiny city size and the fact that you can't easily have enough area to properly scale your city.

Also, grinding in T3+ for loot is terribly inefficient and should only be done for Paragon.
The reality is, you're not going to get new higher tier loot until you start grinding T3+, that's where the good stuff starts dropping.

Gold in the new age won't be weighed as heavily as it once was so I wouldn't be concerned about it if you missed out on the fire sale which was the past few days. Assuming you're not sitting on top of a mountain of gold already, as long as you come across events, reset the quests, and run adventure mode once released, you'll have more than enough gold as well as materials to craft with.

uh you've played the game since 2.0 right? It costs 50k+ to make most rarest now and costs 2m for top tier gems. Even grinding t3+ for lewts can break your cash fast if you're making stuff for rerolls.

Odd, I remember there being a drought in Brazil a decade ago. The price of coffee jumped by 25% and never went back down when there was a glut of beans on the market.

The CAN lost value. That's how economics works
Then I guess you can explain why the price didn't go down when the CDN dollar was worth more than the US by nearly 0.20 a few years ago.

They did some re-routing, but there's a lot of people still suffering from latency issues.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/12031443081

Hey folks,

We are aware that some of you have been experiencing increased latency/lag today. We are not sure at the moment if this is being caused by something on our end, or if it's related to a specific ISP or a specific peering partner that the connection is being routed through.

I would like to get gather a little more information from those of you that are experiencing this issue so that we can have this looked into further.

Please provide the following information when you get the chance:

1. Who is your Internet Service Provider?
2. What city and state are you playing from?
3. Pathping

Here's a support article that will help with the Pathping: Running A Pathping Test

***The pathping report is two parts. Once you get to where it says, "Computing statistics for X amount of seconds, you will want to wait about 10 minutes before the second part of the report is complete.***

Update: 3/12 @ 8:07pm PST

XO posted on their Twitter saying that the XO Engineering teams have adjusted network traffic to route through Los Angeles and Dallas, instead of Chicago. They also mentioned that we should start seeing lower latency.

Customers have posted new pathpings after this reroute took place and I have not seen any positive reports about the increased latency going away. Also, the pathpings still look like they are taking the same route as before.

You guys may need to powercycle your connection to clear out any cached connection data.

Here's a support article with steps on how to do that:

Resetting Network Devices

If that doesn't work try flushing the DNS.

If the issue persists, you may need to post on the XO Twitter page to let them know the issue is not resolved.

I'm a GTX480 user with no such issues since the TDR problem mentioned in this post:
Consider yourself very lucky, after all before the nvidia forum hack, there was a single post there that had nearly 800k views, and 130k replies with regards to the on-going TDR problem with nvidia drivers. And it was so bad, nvidia was paying for people in the US to send their rigs to California for testing.

If you're in Canada, get Teksavvy or Start. Both ISP's will force around bad routing, they most recently did it for WoW and D3 when AT&T started puking all over itself.
