This is the best Blizzard gaming experience I've ever had!
My account has been linked to World of Warcraft since 2010, linked to Starcraft II since shortly after it launched, has SMS-notifications linked with my phone and most recently, I was smart enough to opt-in the convenient experience of purchasing the digital edition of D3.
Thanks to Blizzard's amazingly customer orientated new approach, I can't get passed the Skeleton King either, but instead of getting upset over that or demanding my money back, I actually realized that this is just Blizzard's way of guiding you to play through the game up to Leoric with every single class several times over!
This way you won't end up regretting your character choice later in the game. Also since your gold is shared between your characters, you're guaranteed to have decent starting capital by the time somebody at Blizz eventually, sort of, maybe (or not) ever decides to declare you to not be a potential criminal, credit card fraudster, gold farmer, animal abuser, controversial political activist or a critic of our eternal CEO Bobby Kotick.
So to all you whiners and flamers out there, before complaining, ask yourself: "Do I really want to play in the same Battle.net with people who flip off kittens by the box-load?"
Yeah, I didn't think so.
Thank you Blizzard, specifically for not informing me about any of these measures in advance and protecting me and all the other "undesirables" from making informed decisions in regards to our digital purchases.
So yeah, enjoy my 60 bucks Blizzard, you earned them. And now excuse me while I cap my fifth hero at 13 =)
Love you lots and keep up the good work,
