Diablo III has "prep guide" for launch day

Posted on May 8, 2012 - 5:00pm by Sean Hinz

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

“please be aware that a delay of up to 40 seconds is possible while the game attempts to connect you. If your connection doesn’t succeed in 40 seconds, you’ll be presented with an Error 37 message and asked to try again”.

Uggh... Console games are so much easier than this. That or the servers just crash on day one...
