Mar 1st 2012 1:48PM I fully expect a beta launch/notice at the press day in a couple of weeks. F&F alpha is supposedy going on right now, and it doesn't usually last too long before full beta.

This argument is similar to those who protested removing Diablo III's skill trees in favor of passively earned skills. As a player, I should not be punished for achieving, yet being forced to achieve something on each character to show it off is, in fact, punishing and discouraging. It's certainly not P2W if all I've "paid" is time and effort.
Feb 15th 2012 8:48AM Netflix + anything from my recommendations (usually an action flick or documentary)
Feb 6th 2012 11:21AM I highly recommend XLoot. Alone, it just replaces your loot frames. However, there are several addon modules available for it that change the loot roll frames, replace loot master frames, and even monitor looting history for the whole party.
Feb 4th 2012 4:42AM Did anyone else catch that "high concept" bit about Pandaren landscape?
Last time they did "high concept", we got places like Hellfire Peninsula and Netherstorm. I'm excited.
Feb 2nd 2012 4:54AM just logged in, and 2 things struck me:
1) the quick mini-patch from the launcher
2) a slightly-lower-than-normal parse of a dummy
Blizz has already hotfixed it.
Feb 2nd 2012 4:46AM ITS THE PRE-WOTLK PATCH ALL OVER AGAIN!
Feb 1st 2012 9:27PM Because subscriptions are a guaranteed source of income, whereas the RMAH is completely optional.
Put another way, the base price of Diablo will be between $50 and $60, one time. Assume who ever purchases this never uses the RMAH.That same player could be playing WoW instead, netting Blizzard $15 a month, or $180 a year! That's 3 copies of Diablo right there!
If Diablo takes off, people who sub might decide Diablo's their game of choice instead, severely cramping Blizzard's profit margin.
Jan 31st 2012 4:51PM I think it's clear what happened: Blizzard neglected to update the servers to recognize the 64-bit client. We'll have another downtime before it goes live. I know last week we had restarts on Wednesday, so maybe we'll get that here, too! :crosses fingers:

The two executables are named differently, and thus can coexist in the same folder. Same goes for the .dll included.
Any time you start moving around executables, you run the risk of putting them in the wrong spot, and with the amount of manual installation of this 64-bit client, I'm glad Blizz had the forethought to name them distinctly.
