This forum thread made my D3-less night a better night.
“HELLO BLIZZ AFTER YOU HAVE MAINTAINANCE I GOT INTO SERVER AND TRY PLAY!!!!
BUT SERVER KEEP DISCONNECT!!!!
I GOT 1000 DPS ITEM BUT DISCONNECT AND I LOSE IT!!!
WHAT IS THIS AND NOW SERVER DOWN AGAIN I CANT CONNECT!!!!
BLIZZ I AM BUY YOUR GAME BUT CANNOT PLAY I AM NOT BUY ANOTHER GAME!!!!”
I laughed when I read this opening post.
Subsequently, just 2 posts later, someone trolled him by saying:
“So according to the title… You ARE one of the many items people have lost? Bad item. Go back to your owner.”
I absolutely couldn’t stop laughing. Cannot stop laughing, AT ALL. Everytime I re-read it, I laugh.
On another note, sad sad day today – server maintenance for 8 hours from 4pm to 12mn! I managed to get in about 30 mins of game time to finish off Azmodan (surprisingly easy) before the servers went off at 4pm. Brandon and I managed to get in for another 40 minutes for him to pass me equip and try to advance in the game, before we continuously got dc-ed. Found out I won my equip bid in the Auction House, sent it to stash and I was officially booted from the server.
Now the servers are officially back on maintenance.
Diablo 3 is quickly filling up that gaping hole that has long existed for the last 3 years after I stopped intensive gaming. I can predict a cheap June holidays where I game between waking and sleeping hours.
