Activision Blizzard had their Q3 Earnings Call today and made a few announcements, some of which, of course, relating to Diablo 3. You can check the entire report over here and also look at some data concerning the company's financial situation here. Now for a quick summary:

Diablo 3 has sold over 10 million copies in North America and Europe
World of Warcraft still has over 10 million active subscribers
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty has sold over 6 million copies to date
StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is scheduled to be released sometime in 2013

3.8 Million DPS Monk
Forum member invis has managed to kill Azmodan in 36.5 second on his Monk. While there are certainly some faster kills out there this seems to be one of the fastest Monk kills. Invis has a Twitch channel that you can visit by clicking on this link where he shows his playstyle and answers lots of questions. You can also check out his thread on our forums located here.
We've had a report of this happening before, and it does seem that over time it should resolve itself, but in the meantime, can you try resetting or changing the password on your account, then see if that lets you post on the US forums?
Resetting/changing the password forces all your account related data to refresh, so hopefully that should help.
finish the goddamn original game before you start working on expansions or no one is going to be playing by the time it comes out a decade from now.
Fuck oath. 6 months after release and its still missing a major part of the game play (PvP anyone?).
Not to mention they're gonna need a ladder system with resets to get players back when pvp comes out.. its quite clear blizzard are looking at sales figures on paper to determine if a game is successful or not these days... real shame, quality slowly goin out the door for quantity
DROOD, calling it now. One of the new classes is going to be a druid type. Just sayin.
Also WTF is up with people complaining that they are working on an expansion?! I'll bet you complain when there's a sunrise too, because it's too bright, ffs.
That's a VERY poor comparison. Fact is, I actually agree (kinda) with the complaints. First off - there are several factors we don't know about. How many people are working on the expansion? It might just be 10 guys in the Blizz HQ basement coding away. It might be the arts and modelling crew who have nothing to do now the original game is out. We don't know.
When that has been said, it seems off that we get word on an expansion before we hear anything about 1.1/PvP Patch. However, we are in the dark about all this. My guess is the expansion is still 12-18 months away anyways.
Meh idk I like it. The sun = D3 exp pack, and it being too bright is people finding something to complain about.
All that's left for D3 atm is pvp and maybe a couple tweaks, so it makes perfect sense that they are already working on an expansion. ALAS, people must complain, becuase this is the internets.
...mmm...it's good to know they plan an expansion but there are some things which need to be fixed in the current iteration of the game.
I like this game and spend 99% of my gaming time on it, yet I'm fully aware there are problems, both in terms of game mechanics and performances (stutter, my archenemy! ).
