Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Sees Smooth Launch

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls is live and it appears Blizzard avoided a repeat of its Error 37-filled D3 launch.

My own personal Reaper of Souls experience has thus far been completely pain free. I was able to download and nearly instantly begin playing without error. Ron is on review duty, and other than a spot or two of brief lag, he also said his experience has been smooth. On a wider scale, there is nary a negative post on the official Diablo 3 forums. Quite the opposite, in fact. Look no further than “Bravo Blizzard! Amazing launch!

So if you are venturing back to Sanctuary today, you should feel confident it will be a smooth experience. Here’s what the $40 expansion comes packing:

Act V: A dark and terrifying chapter sending players on a final confrontation with death itself
The Crusader: A new playable hero—a veritable war machine made human
Level Cap to 70: Formidable new spells and abilities that take players to new heights of power
Adventure Mode: A new game mode that gives players the freedom to go anywhere and slay anything
Bounties: Randomized objectives that reward players in new ways for exploring Sanctuary
Nephalem Rifts: Fully randomized dungeons offering endless replayability and heaps of loot
The Mystic: A powerful new artisan who provides heroes with loot-customization options

I haven’t touched Diablo 3 since I beat the core campaign nearly two years ago, so I’m looking forward to finding out how the new loot system works, and I can’t wait to go wherever I want in Adventure mode. Here’s to hoping Blizzard has finally delivered the Diablo 3 we all wanted.

Nary a negative post on the D3 forums? They would have to fire some moderators if there were. Have you ever tried to give honest criticism of the game in that venue?

People who had no idea what made D2 great are salivating over Loot 2.0 because ur d00d got buffs. No more, no less. D3 is like a kiddie pool – colorful, shallow, and worth less than $60. RoS doesn’t add any meaningful character-building choices whatsoever, and “Adventure Mode” just means you get to opt out of sitting through four acts of video streams from Hell. It’s also probably going to be a vehicle for delivering DLC, since there’s literally no reason to ever roll up another copy of a class and the game has no replay value. I guess it would be hard to sell tons of DLC if D3 had a fraction of the depth of D2…

Reason why the launch was so called “smooth” is because the games lost a massive amount of dedicated diablo players.

40 dollars even for a stream version is expensive.
Why do people pay for this stuff…
