That is all good I guess... but still doesnt change the fact that I can not even download the game... let alone play it.


What exactly can't you download? The client itself or the patch?

Everybody and their Mom playing PoE right now.
Of course its overloaded, no server can handle that load.

Its basicly like a huge DDoS attack, and they already said that pre launch.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out D3 had way more people trying to log in. I'm not trying to defend Blizzards huge failure on launch but just saying to be fair.

All I know is PoE is downloading at a blazing 30kb/s atm. Couldn't use the ol' peer to peer system to lessen the server load?

Maybe I'll play it this weekend if I haven't forgotten about it.

"Our patching servers and website are both under extreme load. We are working on adding capacity. Thanks for your patience."

hahaha

I have nothing bad to say about PoE but that is funny.


thats strange because im playing the game right now w/ no lag whatsoever. and the chat channels are bursting at the seams. and FYI there is over 1.6mil registered POE accounts already and raising as i speak . there are hundred of thousands of players playing POE right now i dont even know if that many people still play D3 period. As i log into D3 every few days and only find 8-30 people in chat channels.


Where are you getting that "hundreds of thousands" from?

Do you realize how many people that actually is? You should look at how many registered to play games such as Age of Conan, The Secret World, SWKOTOR etc. Those numbers do not even come close to representing the amount of people actually playing at launch.

In POE paid beta there were around 700 at peak times using the /online command.

I enjoy POE and actually paid many months ago for early access and you know what? Crazy but I enjoy D3 also. I actually play both games and sometimes I even load up Torchlight 2... madness I know!!

Again with this community and no having any sense or rationality. You are just spouting nonsense with no stats to back it up at all because you mindlessly want to hate and spread bad press about a game you likely still play and enjoy from time to time.

Just got done playing. It was really boring. And I had so much hope for this game. Oh well, back to Diablo 3.

PoE feels like a free to play game.

Its trash.

The website isn't loading for me. Not that I'm interested in the game. I just want to see how many people are complaining about the servers.
