Why would Blizzard care if you downloaded the client? If anything it helps to offload traffic when the invites actually go out. It's not like you can do anything. I'm sure Blizzard would love to pre-load D3 on everyone's PC.
Surely, if they wanted us to have the client, they would reveal it and put it for open download!!...
I don't think they will like to have they're servers hacked. "Lucky" for them, now you need to be online to play...
I dont think you understand what "hack" means. Simply putting a link into your browser to download a file is not hacking.
Of course I do my friend... and I'm as hyped with tho as any of you. But I'm trying to guess what is Blizzard "feeling" right now!... They weren't really hacked, but the client is out without their consent, right??
Do you think Blizzard will like this??
to be honest, im almost positive they dont care. We have downloaded the beta client without being in the beta for almost every blizzard beta...if they didnt like it, they would simply require you to have an active account to even run the launcher.
I hope you are right!! and for sure Bashiok will be posting anytime soon, since the link is on the official forum! let's just wait and see!!!
P.S. BTW, I'm amazed with the amazing speed this threat is growing!!! super cool =D
