Early Diablo 3 Activation

  • Hi

    With Battlefield 3 and MAss Effect 3, one was able to set their proxy to an IP in a different timezone thus allowing early activation for ones regional version of the above mentioned games. EA allowed this to occur, and did not penalize anyone who did so, as they were activating a copy already paid for.

    For those of us(Like Me) Who preordered and have the files downloaded and ready to install, if such a technique as above were used to get early access to the game, will Blizzard be penalizing players for it, or will they also take the same stance as EA?

    Global Play Launch Time
    We’ll be turning on Global Play when the game has launched in all regions. This means that you will not be able to play in a region outside your home region until after the Americas’ midnight launch at 12:01 a.m. PDT on May 15.
