This is the other thread about D3. You won't get fucked over for it here.
I've only managed to put an hour or so in last night. Played a wizard to level 3 and kept playing with the video settings to see how much I can squeeze out of my video card. I'm running a 2-3 year old laptop with a NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT. I couldn't find it in either supported or unsupported lists but, since it hasn't crashed yet, I'm not fussed. The looks vs. performance balance is not bad but I'm not convinced yet.
I haven't experienced any really. I pre-ordered the night before, had it downloading over night and installed it in the morning before going to work (all OZ time). By the time I got back home and had all the chores done, it was around 3am PST, I think, and I went straight into playing. No errors, no full server issues, no complaints whatsoever.
Not having played the beta, it is all very fresh. I do wish there was a paladin type of class as I used to enjoy that in D2. It doesn't matter though. They could have released it with one class and I'd still be enjoying it. I haven't gone full retard in fanboyerism but this game comes second on the list of things I was looking forward to seeing released. First was A Dance With Dragons.
Gotta try others to say. Tempted to try the witch doctor next.
Figuring it out...
I'm a bit confused with a couple of things so far.
1) Character names don't need to be unique and you go by your bnet tag in chat. I could even roll two characters with the same name. The game didn't seem to care. Besides quest dialogue, I didn't see any reference to character names.
2) I joined a public game after getting my wizard to level 3 and in the space of 30 seconds or so, three quest objectives got completed before I could even leave town. I didn't need to 'join party' or anything. Is this how it is meant to work? Given this is the first play through, I'd like to see it all myself and at my pace, so I will avoid pubs for now.
I will play a little more tonight. I'm sure the list will get longer.
