Diablo III has "prep guide" for launch day
For those of your interested in getting your hands on Diablo III day one, Blizzard has outlined the process for having an optimal game experience with the Diablo III “Launch Day Preparation Guide”. Step one is to purchase the game (obviously). Then create your BattleTag, which you can actually do right now.
Following that you need to check the midnight launch event times worldwide. Now these launch times don’t include the early install, which will be available to digital pre-sale. You can download the client right now, but Blizzard won’t be unlocking the game's installer until 8:01 a.m. PDT on May 14th. And with the whole world trying to play Diablo III
Uggh... Console games are so much easier than this. That or the servers just crash on day one...
I just want to play. The 40 seconds doesn't bother me as much as the tiered launch times. They must be doing that for quality control reasons.
Yup, but waiting 40secs just to get connect fail is very annoying also.
"Console games are so much easier than this" but on the other hand in singleplayer games you can't have fan made patches
40 secs? Are people really complaining about this? 40 seconds is nothing when the other option is no one can get on because the login servers are being overloaded.

... unless you have to blow on a cartridge till your face turns blue and you pass out then wake up in a hospital to find out that you have Nintenphysema.
I thought that step one would be telling everyone you won't be seeing the sun for a few months.
Of course, the whole "40 second delay" headache could of easily been avoided by dropping the online-only DRM enforced on Single Player, and separate offline and online characters so they can keep their fancy auction house.
