Pre-release download

Did tencent give them a billion dollars of advertising money and send hundreds of employees to their office to help them with the game?

This wasnt ideal for sure.

We have a war-room going and there have been talks about looking at improving this in the future and allowing players some more of a window to prep with downloads in the future.

Sorry about this guys. Hopefully everyone gets in speedy quick here.


It’s all good. We entertained ourselves.

lol, i almost thought someone used your name to troll ^^ saw your above post from the non-cm account you deleted ^^

also no biggie. isnt really like the world is going to end when we get to play 10 mins later.

Predownloading technology has been a thing for a long time, I’m pretty sure other blizzard games have done it. Can you really not just put up the patch a few hours before it goes live? I know you can, you just aren’t doing it for some reason. I suspect it has something to do with consoles because it almost always does. But you probably can’t admit to that in public.

There are no priority queues. We don’t have that capability nor will ever implement that as there is no need.

Only thing we have is an internal allowance to anyone with accounts with to test before windows open.


Lies I know Asmongold has his own private server! :open_mouth:

No worries blue man. There’s always problems on expac/seasonal launches with most games. It’s part of the fun tbh.

No streemer got into game early genius. Just because they have a video up with fancy title doesnt mean they are playing new season. Rax and others were merely playing what was left of s3 before servers went down.

28k peak vs. 284k.

Both near or at end of season. My goodness I love the constant mental gymnastics here. Let’s also disregard that Greater affixes are “Exalted” items.

Don’t care either way, it and Helldivers 2 have far better loops. Of course I’ll hop on my eternal characters in the “Season without a theme but hey we finally fixed loot a year later” to see what I think of the changes after not touching D4 in months.

And I still question anyone with thousands of posts actually even playing the game.

Seems a bit suspicious that you post an update showing BigdaddyDen76 in the game streaming before the update was available on the launcher. I was repeated checking right up to launch time for an update as it seemed odd that it hadn’t already happened. At least be up front about it, we get it you get revenue and exposure from streamers but all in all not exactly good look on that.


16GB in about 5 min for me so looks good. And I only have a crappy 300mb downstream cable internet. Sighhh… won’t get to play till later.

might want to check twitch, they were in the game right at the launch time as soon as the link went on the bnet launcher

EU here, 300KB/s - 30MB/s and I enabled that “limit download” trick in settings. Looks like even this doesn’t work anymore this season.

Looks at you all suspicious like

yeah it’s not like you’ve had 12 years of experience since Diablo 3 or anything

just a small indie developer

Ready to play here, in 33 minutes

So its not too bad at all, Off to play! See ya on the other side folks! Stay Strong!

I’m STILL downloading because of yalls idiotic choice.

We promote our Diablo Streaming Partners on the launcher. We have done this since Diablo III. Those are scheduled by our team when we are spotlighting creators. We had him scheduled at 10am when the season began. Just like Lexyu will be up there at 4pm on the launcher and 10pm for Rob tonight.

He also is only level 8 at 10:33am when I just checked his stream.

Its ready to play at 48%. Think I’ll wait until the full DL is complete though. Took 30 minutes to get to 48% for me though. :frowning:

If I am in within an hour of starting my DL, I will be super happy. That’s damn fast for anything I usually update through battle net.
