Reaper of Souls and this patch combined are nothing more than Diablo 3 finally being actualized and released.
Better late than never I suppose.
The good news is due to the delay (nearly) every student will be back from school, and (nearly) every adult will be back from work, so there will be an absurd surge of millions of users logging in simultaneously. Im sure that wont cause any further issues.
Wait...did I say good news?
