I thought I'd settled on Barbarian but after watching the IGN vids of Jay Wilson giving tips on how to play each class, I'm totally undecided again. Barbarian looks great, but so does Wizard, and Monk and ARGHH! /CantDecide

If its slow, disable peer to peer.

That made my download double in speed a month ago.

Still no dispatch from Amazon. Can't help but think it might be because I changed my delivery from super saver to first class a few days ago.

Disabling Peer-to-Peer normally helps but I think with how close we are to release that the servers are being taxed with the amount of people trying to pre-load. You'll just have to be patient.

I'm playing DH first since then I don't have to run all the way up to enemies or barrels to destroy them. You can just shoot from afar and only run there if there is good loot. It's annoying having to run around obstacles like cracks in the ground just to kill 1 zombie.

Try going into Internet Explorer and going to Options>Connection>LAN Settings and turn off "Auto Detect Settings" then restart your download.

Works for some.

Tesco pulled through, received E-Mail late Saturday night saying dispatched. Arrived this morning at work.

Phew, Tesco will be getting my pre-orders from now on. Amazon let me down in the past so I am glad I moved away from them.

I've not pre-ordered from any outlet.

If i want to pre-load for tonight is my only option to buy it through blizz, 45?

Guessing if i do there is still a chance i won't get to play it due to the long d/l times/busy server demands etc.

Just trying to decide if it's worth buying it when i get home from work tonight or waiting until tomorrow and getting a hard copy (30-35). Don't want to spend the extra 10 if it won't make a difference.



Cheers

Haven't heard from Amazon yet, but they've never let me down with pre-orders in the past, and they always seem to dispatch the night before so it arrives the next day - fingers crossed that's the case here again
