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.

Holy shit, I wish I could get those guys as my ISP...
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.

Thanks Creston for the power mode suggestion. Hope that works. It isn't a huge deal since Windows can gracefully recover from the graphics driver crashing these days, but it's damn annoying.

Well it either will or won't. If it doesn't, then grab a tweak utility of some kind and start screwing around with core GPU voltages. Either up or down usually 0.001v is enough to bring the card into stability, since about ~290ish, nvidia drivers have been hideously unstable for anything but the top of the line cards.

I think my city already blew the snow-plow budget, so our side streets haven't been cleared. They should call Mr. Plow. Mr Plow, that's his name, that name again is Mr. Plow.
Wanna bet that they've been siphoning off the plowing budget to pay for pet projects in the GR fund?

Yeah, fuck this winter. We just got half a foot dumped on us yesterday.
7" here, 6" of snow, with 1" of wet snow under it. And now everything is as slippery as anything because my city can't figure out to use this marvelous stuff called "sand" on the roads before everyone starts turning it into a sheet of ice.

I have a 120gb ssd for my os and a 500gb ssd for games. That's more than enough room. If you can't afford to get anything other than a 120 SSD....get a platter drive and stop bitching.

Complaining about the install size is just bitching cause you like to bitch.

There's never enough room. I feel annoyed that I'm now running out of space.

It's been F2P for a couple of years. And it's worth grabbing a sub when they have their 9.99/mo with 500zen offer up usually twice a year.

For those who miss the paladin, the crusader fills that roll rather nicely. Not quite as pew-pew die like the monk, but still very nice.

Sounds like they realized that the base "open world multi region" requires more polish to bring upto snuff. Call it 10mo or so sounds about right for polishing and fine tuning.

Nice. I'm curious as to how it's going to shape up, then again I'm hoping to get into the closed beta too. One of those rare games where I'd actually enjoy that.

Haha yeah. In Canada, and if you're on rogers, bell or telus, on their standard mid-range-screw-over plans congrats! You just blew around 90% of your monthly cap.

I actually see this as a good thing, since it might actually force people to ditch them for TPIA's(third party companies).

I do remember blu-ray being kind of a big thing. Players were expensive back then so getting one as part of video-game system was a good deal. Good point about the backwards compatibility, makes the purchase a lot easier to stomach when there's already a large library of games you can play.
Funny enough I still don't have a blu-ray player, I was considering picking up one for my PC recently, but I can't see a real need to. Hell I haven't even used my DVD drive in nearly 2 years, not sure if it still works. The nice thing about all the digital stuff is, it's doing the same thing to the low-density distribution methods of the past. The downside of course is you need to be somewhere that's got broadband to make it worthwhile.

The only quote I heard frequently was Executive Producer, Mark Darrah, saying (paraphrasing) that one single area of DA3 is larger than all of the DA2 areas combined.
Well that's not hard to surpass, considering DA2 had 3 areas, and the rest were rehashed from the same area with tunnels blocked off.
