I am really upset. The lack of support on this issue is really irritating me. The least they could do is publicly acknowledge this! Ugh

same has happened to me, it took me so long to download as well!!! the email say'

"The digital game(s) you purchased are now available for download to your computer from your Battle.net account.

If you made this purchase from Battle.net (instead of the Blizzard Store), your license is already attached to your account. "

SO ANNOYED!

Found this out last night:

If you just bought the game (digital download), your game will be kept at starter edition until your payment clears, to be sure the credit charge wasn't fraudulent. They told me it could take as long as 72 hours.

Did some forum searching and found the reason for Skeleton king starter edition message. Qoute from Blizz rep:
Outside of the issue that we fixed, digital purchases do require a review period before they kick over from Starter to Full editions. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it is a necessary step to combat fraud and other malicious activities that can weaken everyone's play experience.The delay is no longer than three days, and is often much quicker than that. Hang tight. :)


If you go ingame and mouse over the public chat icon in the bottom left it mentions this very same three day waiting period before you can trade or post in public chat, so to everyone concerned their purchase has not gone through or there account has been wrongly changed to starter edition..fear not. It just appears we wont be slaying diablos minions past the skeleton king.

Looks like this issue has arisen since the patch came in!

I also am having this same problem. I submitted my ticket as well. Not for nothing but if enough of us are having this issue, they should be on it faster than usual right?? It's not a good thing for sure, but at least the numbers will get their attention maybe?

This sucks for sure, I had the whole day off for this tomorrow and now I don't know... way to go Blizzard. First purchase i've made from you in over a decade.

There is a 3 day wait (for my case 1 day) to verify your credits. It sucks that they wouldn't tell you about it regardless but I got my game working now! XD

I did some research and figured that out. I only wished they had told me before I committed to buying their edition that this would happen.

Now I wished I went to gamestop like I had planned.

Blizz dont give a dam. did you guys know this?

It's sad that I have to discover this 3-day wait period AFTER paying for the software, without any kind of notice. Very sad.
And it should have been dealt in some other way, without causing problems to paying customers...

Hi guys, I defeated Skeleton king with starter edition, then bought a license, accomplished same mission again and finally unlocked further mission.
Anyway, after patching the game, I am having your same problem: the second hero I create can't pass skeleton king, because the game ask me to upgrade my account.
The 3days period still have to pass since I buyed the license, but I ask me why it works for me the first time, just few minutes after purchasing.
