I am sorry but there is no excuse for having rolling outages and 2+ hour maintenance on launch day. This isn't an MMO for crying out loud. Shouldn't they have data from both the pre-order statistics and beta stress test to tell them how to configure the servers. Apparently they stuck their head in the sand and did nothing to prepare.

That's correct, they didn't. It's MUCH cheaper to not do anything than it is to get enough infrastructure in place.

It is totally unacceptable to launch a game that isn't ready. The industry really needs to get its act together.

It's unacceptable? Really? Because 4+ million people just told Blizzard that it is PERFECTLY acceptable to pull this kind of stunt. Posting "UNACCEPTABLE!! RAAEG!!!" on a forum somewhere isn't going to make Blizzard change its ways.

NOT BUYING THEIR GAMES would, but shit... man... it's Diablo!
And Blizzard knows full well that people would buy it anyway, so they put in always-online requirements, and didn't have enough hardware in place to handle the numbers.

They're laughing all the way to the bank.
