Blizzard at Gamescom 2013
Blizzard's streak of convention attendances is continuing to grow. This time it will be the European fans that will have the chance to meet Blizzard's staff and take part in a huge number of fun activities.
Blizzard Entertainment will be at gamescom 2013, the world’s biggest games convention, taking place August 21-25. Join us there for the latest news on our games, great entertainment, and fantastic competitions with great prizes!
We’ll be at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany to meet players from across Europe and the world and give everyone a chance to play our latest games. All kinds of entertainment will also be on offer to visitors to the Blizzard booth (B40 in Hall 7): show matches, live music, quizzes, competitions and much more.
You can find out more about this incredible games show, including how to attend, here.
Making a welcome return to gamescom will be our celebrated costume and dance contests. Always wanted to appear on stage as a witch doctor, a pandaren monk, or a Protoss Zealot? Or are you brave enough to show off your goblin, night elf or tauren dance moves? This is your big chance! In the coming days we’ll have signups ready so you can reserve your place in the contests, but for now you can already start stitching, welding and practicing.
Stand by for more contest information, prizes, a full schedule, and details on what you can play, see and watch with Blizzard at gamescom 2013!

This subject comes up from time to time, so you're not the only one who'd like to see Covetous Shen move his shop in Act I. I'd be happy to pass along your feedback. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
D3's Not Smooth on Overclocked Systems
I'm sorry but under no circumstances can we support running the game on non-standard clock speeds.
Of course you're welcome to tweak your hardware however you like, but our games may not run successfully on tweaked systems.
Recently Bought Items Should Go Straight to the Stash 1) How many times or how many people buy something and DON'T want it in there stash box right away...
2) How many times have you bought something, started a game, run to stash or crafter, curse, leave game, back to AH, send to stash, and start game AGAIN...
You're not the only one who has loaded up a game to grab a recently bought item, only to immediately leave so it can be sent to the stash. I do that every so often, and I'll ask about it at our next meeting with the developers. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Let Blizzard Know Of Any RMAH SMS Issues
The problem with RMAH's SMS verification that was reported yesterday turns out to be a pretty common one. But it brought something good to the community - now is the time to let Blizzard know of any SMS issues you have - whether you can't connect your phone to Battle.net or the messages don't come fast enough when trying to post items on the RMAH, at the moment the Community Managers are listening closely.

I appreciate it!
Okay, thanks for your patience, Pockey - we're still looking into this. For anyone else who may have experienced a similar issue, please feel free to update us here as to whether or not you started receiving the codes, or if the SMS started behaving differently.

Thanks for the update Sÿlak, I continue to see these reports popping up and hope to have an update here before too long.
Edit: For those of you who are still experiencing this, please let us know your carrier and which region you are in. Thank you!
As of 7p PDT our systems administrators have been unable to replicate this or verify that this is due to an issue on our side of things. Although I do have less reports today than I did yesterday, I do still see reports coming in. As such, we're going to continue to keep close watch on the thread - if I have any other information to provide I will, and in the interim if anything changes on your side of things, please update us.
