Ok I was playing perfectly before servers went down. Never had problems with launcher before. Now every time i click play the launcher just sits there and the game never starts...

Well i figured out how to get past that by force stopping the stupid Agent.exe but after that pressing play does nothing...

avia, it just freezes my launcher, or does it just take 10+ minutes to start the game?

Force stopping agent.exe worked for me to get past the Updating Files steps, but in this case I'm referring to the D3 Launcher. The game is installed/patched to 100%, I click "Play", it gets stuck on "Launching..." Force stopping agent.exe this time around yields a communication error and tells me to restart the launcher.

No go for me. Open launcher, get's stuck at updating tools. Force close stupid agent.exe and I get initializing and updating files to 100%. Click on Play and it sits at launching FOREVER...ok, only 15 minutes so far!

I had the same issues. I disabled peer-to-peer downloading in downloader preferences at the launch menu, then restarted the launcher. Game worked fine after that.

This is an issue with the tools, and appears to be a known problem. Now the problem is getting stuck at "updating tools". A *lot* of people are updating all at the same time, so that's bogged down at the moment.
