*** Had to edit to add this (after reading a few other posts). Several of you are posting about the disconnects from the server(s) and are unhappy about it... ARE YOU SERIOUS? IT'S A STRESS TEST. They are giving us a chance to try their game FOR FREE BEFORE IT'S RELEASED. We should be greatful to have the chance and you should EXPECT connection issues in a stress test otherwise they're not doing their job... Am I the only one that sees it this way???????
If we can excoriate Ubisoft for it, I don't see why Blizzard should be spared. The fact that we're getting to play the Starter Edition demo before release shouldn't let them off the hook.
IMO they've sadled a fun single player game with a horrible client/server setup. It only exists to protect an additional revenue stream - it doesn't add any value to the game for me.
It's a huge disappointment that the scariest part of the game is server disconnection.
