Jul 10, 2012 unplayable lag Since patching today the game has unplayable latency. Doing speedtests etc seem to work fine and other programs do not have issues but Diablo has horrible lag problems. The game will go fine then for awhile will have unplayable lag, sections of the map will be grayed out and I cannot enter them. I can hit esc and let the game catch up but that usually results in me insta gibbing to a champion pack.Whtetyger0 Jul 10, 2012

Jul 10, 2012 Having lag issues on D3 Hey, hopefully somebody can guide me in the right direction here...So I upgraded my computer a few days ago and when I tried to play Diablo 3, I was lagging every 3-5 seconds in the game. I don't understand why this is happeing, I turned vertical sync off and even tried to run my game at low settings and it still was lagging at the same rate... CPU- i5 2500k GPU- GeForce GTX 560 Superclocked Hard drive- 500gb Mobo- BIOSTAR TZ77B LGA 1155 Intel Z77 500w Power Supply 4GB of DDR3 RAM Thank you in advance for anyone who decides to help me ! :DMayhem15 Jul 10, 2012

Jul 10, 2012 GTX 550 Ti graphical problems I recently purchased a new EVGA GTX 550 Ti video card. When I play Diablo 3 with the new card, I receive choppy, stuttering video with low FPS. The in-game FPS counter doesn't even work; it's stuck at zero. The interesting thing is I got the card about a week ago, and it has been performing strangely poor, but last night, that was different. I signed in and I had a tremendous FPS increase and the game ran very smooth. When I signed in this morning, it was back to choppy, stuttering, low quality video. Drivers are up to date, and it runs other games perfectly fine. Help please...Jeffster0 Jul 10, 2012
Jul 10, 2012 ATI Radeon HD 4200 HELP! I know that as of now Diablo 3 does not support the ATI Radeon 4200. Will it ever be able to play Diablo 3 though? Are they currently working on it? Please if anyone knows tell me.Ryan7 Jul 10, 2012
Jul 10, 2012 Cannot Validate Core Data Files???/ I constantly get this error that causes the game to freeze or not load characters on screen and force me to force close Diablo anyways. What is the deal with this error, is Blizzard fixing this, or how can I fix it? I've seen posts of tons of other people getting same problem since day 1, and only thing an administrator said was to delete Diablo folder on computer and reinstall. Doesn't fix anything.....Rocketman0 Jul 10, 2012

Jul 10, 2012 Idea to combat lag and Server issues. Hello, First, I would like to say despite the few flaws, I have enjoyed Diablo 3 very much. I am also confident that the Blizzard team will be able to build upon the game until it is working just as it should. However, recently the game has become completely unplayable for me. I have moved back to school, and the lag has gone up a drastic amount. Every few minutes the game will freeze where my character can still move, but can not interact in anyway with the game, then when the lag ends, more often that not my character is dead. This was an issue when I first started playing as well, but the enemies were so weak that it didn't make a huge difference; now, it is a death sentence every time. This got me thinking... What if you implemented a system where after playing to level ten, you unlock an offline mode. This way you would still stop piracy by making them play online first, but also the people with lag could play the higher levels offline without having to worry about dying. This would also likely improve the server quality for people who do remain online. You could still make patches and what not mandatory upon game start up, to ensure no one has an unfair advantage (i.e. attack speed) I, admittedly, don't know how difficult it would be to implement on your side, but it would show that you are listening to and acting on feedback, willing to compromise, and would allow many people to play the game without the burden of having to be online. Let me know what you guys think of this idea... tldr: Unlock offline mode after level 10 to both stop piracy, and prevent lag.MindCrook0 Jul 10, 2012
Jul 10, 2012 AH removed all auctions and no items or gold. I was just able to get into the AH, and there was no pending auction or completed auction. I had over 6 million in bids and about 18 auction posted in RMAH and gold AH. All were gone. I see now that the AH has been taken down again. I hope the items and pending auctions are restored.MadHatterX3 Jul 10, 2012
Jul 10, 2012 Cant join Hell game, but i beat nightmare My character was on Act II in nightmare, but I got an invite from a friend who was on Act IV. I joined his game, and we end up beating the final boss. I even got the achievement for it. He then started a new Hell game, but I wasn't able to join it. Do I need to go back to Act II on nightmare in my own game and beat the quests that I missed?Taborcarn2 Jul 10, 2012
Jul 10, 2012 Video card not supported It took what seemed like ages to install the client for this game after I bought it, and now it says the video card on this computer won't support it. Any way to fix that here, or do I have to go out and get a new one altogether?flamewolf10 Jul 10, 2012
Jul 10, 2012 Crashed game. Lousy. To hell with this game. Constant crashes, more downtime than playing time, nobody even adress to our problems, let alone solve them. WORST BUYING OF ALL TIME. I can only say sorry to those who bought collector's editions. You guys suck at making a stable game. TEN years developing and working on the game to deliver such a poor end product. You guys should all be ashamed of yourselves.... oh, wait, your're making A LOT of money out of it and that's all you care about, I forgot... When will you solve the non english clients crashing problems? After the coffee break? Woa, neat.Bento0 Jul 10, 2012

Jul 10, 2012 Had to close Diablo 3 launcher 4 times. When I run "Diablo III Launcher.exe" occasionally it says that it's installing the patch I should already have... so okay I wait for it anyways, why not, if it overwrites there's no harm. So it finishes and gives me the giant "PLAY" button and when I click it the launcher does absolutely nothing. So far my solution has been opening task manager and ending Diablo 3 Launcher & Agent. Sometimes I have to do this 5+ times before the game actually launches. What's worse is.. I finally got in-game and then I get "auction house not available".. basically the only reason I wanted to sign in in the first place. I'm sorry this game took how long to make? Put it back in the oven it's not done yet.Corpsey8 Jul 10, 2012

Jul 10, 2012 I am absolutly done with Blizzard (must read) So this is my ongoing "customer support" with blizzard. Un freaking believable. Adam Edmister i accidently dropped a wpn during a boss fight and died b4 i could pick it up. went back in..Gone I was fighting belial in solo game and i tryed to switch wpns from my Life on Hit wpn to my critical damage wpn. I accidently dropped the critical damage wpn on the ground but b4 i could pick it back up i died. when i tried to go back into the boss fight it wasnt there. i couldnt pick it back up after i died. i bought the item off the real money auction house on july 2nd for 78.00 dollars. thats just for identification purposes, i know you cant do anything about RMAH purchases. the name of the item was Smoldering Ram. it was an 822dps 1h mighty sword with dex/vitality and crit damage and a socket with a crit damage gem in it. I REAAAAAALY hope you can restore it to me as it was a total accident and like i said i couldnt pick it back up once i was dead #1 7/9/2012 7:26 PM Droovasz Customer Service Representative Greetings, Thank you for contacting Blizzard Support regarding your Diablo 3 account. Please keep in mind that we only offer very limited support for Diablo 3. We cannot alter followers, artisans, or achievements. If an item or hero cannot be recovered using in-game systems, it is permanently lost, and we will not be able to assist in any fashion.

Regards, Game Master Droovasz Customer Services Blizzard Entertainment #2 7/10/2012 1:29 AM Adam Edmister Ok, your response was extremely unhelpful. It did not even remotely come close to being an answer to my problem nor was it helpful in pointing me in the right direction. Hell, it didnt even say "sorry we cant help you at all, tough luck". I dont understand... is this the kind of customer support D3 has? My problem, if you read it instead of it being put to an auto reply system, which I find to be HIGHLY disprespectful of your PAYING CUSTOMERS, has nothing to do with account security. I was not hacked nor was any of my items "taken". I dropped an item on the ground on accident but b4 i could pick it up and get it back in my bags, I died by the boss i was fighting. and due to A PROBLEM WITH THE GAME, i could neither pick up my wpn after i was dead NOR pick it back up upon re-entrance into the "boss fight instance", as it was not there. Now, pls have a REAL person look at this and respond with a REAL customer support answer. Not the rubbish that i recieved so far. absolutly appaling to say the least. Customer Service Representative Greetings, Thank you for contacting the Account and Technical Services Department at Blizzard Entertainment.

Jul 10, 2012 US Patch, others have to wait If there is a patch out, doesn't it make sense to update all the servers and not one by one? Can someone (Blue) answer this question for me. From the start of the game, there has been 6-7 patches, 1.00, 1.01, 1.02, 1.03 with a,b,c update, that means you lock out people who paid for your game around 10-14 days out of all the days the game is running on your server. I ask you this, if you are know there is an update, can you at least not force cilent to download the latest patch so we can play till the correct patch is updated on the server my character is on. I hope you read this, and on the side note. Thanks for making Rakanoth a !@#$%, his teleport is super damaging, and the soul ripper are extra life and takes more damage.LapChi2 Jul 10, 2012

Jul 10, 2012 Game Bug or Internet Issue? This issue would be minor to me if I did not play hardcore. Often after I log in or switch characters, I will select a white item, intending to drop it. My client will freeze so that nothing moves except my mouse. I cannot alt+tab or alt f4 at this point. Sometimes it lasts for 10 seconds, 2 minutes, or so long that I restart my computer. If it does unfreeze, I will be disconnected and sent to my character screen (which kills hardcore players). I contacted customer support, told them this, and gave them all of the information they asked for (dxdiag, msinfo, pathping). Then they asked me to do a trace route. They said if the "hops" in between my IP and the server had asterisks (or other errors, but they did have asterisks), I should contact my ISP. They told me it could take weeks to identify and solve the problem. Am I just being blown off? Since I don't actually have any latency issues or things like that, I feel that it is a game bug. Has anyone else had this issue?Magnus2 Jul 10, 2012
Jul 10, 2012 Server Status sez AH up but is grayed out. Is the Server Status page manually updated? It very often seems to be inaccurate for 30 minutes to an hour around maintenance outages, sometimes showing servers up when they are not, but most often showing Auction House is up when it is not. This time, right after 1.03b went live, it shows AH availability, but people are getting grayed out AH buttons. If this is not automated, you really need a more attentive person responsible for updating, and if it is automated, well, it's broken. It's a quality of life issue, sure, but it's another one of those things that makes Blizzard appear to really not care about doing a good job.Zuzax2 Jul 10, 2012

Jul 10, 2012 Poor performance issues (slowed then sped up) Hi, I have a custom built machine that should be able to handle most any game put out today on the highest graphic settings; however in D3 I am forced to put every setting down to it's bare minimum as well as switch my graphics card from quality to performance which I have never had to do. What I am seeing is when I encounter more than ~15 enemies the game begins to slow down time then after the fight it speeds up to account for the slowed effect. Here are my computer stats: AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 38.GHz (overclocked) quad core 8gb memory DDR3 SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1gb mem, Direct X11 ( Windows 7 Premium Any help or suggestions is apprectiated.PandaCan0 Jul 10, 2012
