The download of the actual client will have no basis on where you can connect, all it’s gonna dictate is what your language pack is… … You wanna download the german client and play in Europe? you do that. You wanna download the german client and play in North America? you can do that too.
Q: So the functionality is closer to what Diablo 2 had where you could just choose server rather than Starcraft 2.
Yes.


If you buy Diablo 3, you are just buying Diablo 3, you can play wherever you want. So you guys get to choose. Now what we will do is we will lock you down to a specific auction house, so for example if you are a European national you would have access to the European auction house. You will still be able to play in North America. You can participate in the gold auction house if you want, but you can only participate in the real money auction house of your native country [editor note: region]. [Another example] North American citizen, play anywhere, participate in the gold auction house anywhere, but the RMAH only in North America.


Do they share a "global character storage", let's say can I bring my lvl60 barb I created in the US server and play in the Europe server? Or they are separated?

Good good good, because I have a gaming group I have met, and a great many of them live in Europe. Playing World of Warcraft with them is impossible for me since I have an NA account. I have to settle for, well, other games.

So does this mean for SEA people, they can set their RMAH to North America, and then play their character on both SEA and North America?

I do know that SEA people can play on either servers, but does this mean they can choose which RMAH they use?

I might even think that RMAH won't exist in SEA, I think we're the only region with so many different currency.
