    Can you re-download it if something gets muffed up on your comp or you change comps?

    Because sometimes disabling p2p is sometimes faster in my experience, at least with things like downloading WoW patches and such.

    Yes all you have to do is login to battle.net and access the download link again. It's pretty nice, I've got my warcraft 3 linked up on my bnet account too.

    Yeah, you can get old games from bnet now.

    Kind of cool since I don't know where my diablo 2 media is (somewhere at my parents house) and I can still get it. Unfortunately I had lost my LoD disk and key before the bnet thing...so I can't get the expansion (which means you can't go above 640x480 resolution...).

    No error, but when I run the setup the blizzard launcher kicks off but then I get....

    "The fire from the sky still falls.
    Diablo III has not yet launched."

    You can pre-load regardless of where you buy it. I'm picking up a physical CE edition but have already pre-loaded the game.

    As Kelv stated, come Monday morning you can finish the last patch (100mb) to actually install the game. At midnight PST, you can log-in to unleash years of anticipation.

    The Diablo lore is one I actually find fascinating. I bought Cain's Journal and read through it when it first came out.

    I got general diablo question.

    My friend and I are coming over from Diablo from WoW, we've never played. We normally group together but at times one of us levels faster than the other depending on play time availability. If our level differences become to great will we still be able to group together or is there an exp nerf that kicks in?

    I don't know the exact specifics but I believe there will be an exp reduction with large level differences.

    This is literally the only thing my roommate has been talking about the last couple months. I just bought an amazingly badass computer and it's supposed to arrive on the 15th so I feel like the timing is rather conducive to me giving Diablo a shot. To be honest though, I'm more excited about the new sim city coming out next year. Haha.
