Australia release

  • #1
    A quick question on the release time; so im guessing in US, D3 will be released at midnight on the 15th MAY. However, does this also mean it will be released at Midnight in Melbourne Australia?

    dear god woman put some clothes on!!!

    as far as i know it will be released in the country you in at midnight your time, with the US 1st to get the green light at midnight

    so in aussie you may have to wait 24 hours or so


    i may be wrong

    Australia always gets pushed back a day so US is first. We'll most likely be 16th for physical copies. Online versions I don't see coming out any later, then again, Steam still holds the rest of the world behind US. It depends on the company/international law junk.

    Who knows though. I've found if I go into the store I preordered the day before release they usually just give it to me anyway.

    Long story short: Probably after the US because we have less people who can complain.

    mmm.. yeah this is where i get confused, coz for some other games, say GOW3, it seemed like we got in before US, but again, i could be totally wrong..

    What happened with SC2?

    Yeah, we should get it at a midnight launch on our may the 15th so then we can just wait leisurely for the US may 15th to roll around and register our keys.

    I'll try and get my local EB (chadstone) to break street date :P They seem to with almost every other game.

    How can they have no more in store purchase? Or do you mean that they don't have any more CE left?

    I ordered my CE ages ago (Adelaide, Australia) i checked the EB again not too long ago and said they were completely over whelmed with the number of purchases on the CE.
    Another question i was going to ask is that i notice when i play in the morning when i wake up, the lag is terrible. Not just terrible, but unplayable. And this is just in the beta. I understand that we connect to American servers but will this lag be too much for us? When i play at night it is fine (~200ms) but when realized there is going to be alot more players.
    Should i panic?

    Hard to know what kind of server intrastructure they have for the release. I'm fine playing at any time of day in Melbourne with my ISP. I'd say use SC2 as a barometer if you have it. I'm guessing things will be shaky within the first month especially if sales exceed their expectations.
