Not being able to play with your friends who rolled on other servers is both extremely dissapointing and a terrible experience. I do wish to be able to play with my friends, but some of them are not going to play day one, some of them are still undecided whether to play the game or not but might start playing later on. So now, in order to even remotely have a chance to play with my friends, I'll have to randomly chose a server from that list and message them all with the server "in case you decide to play DI, start on this server please"; not to mention that server could very well be FULL in a matter of days already. Imagine designing a game for 30-50million potential players and still trying to preserve the sense of "realms" that usually work best for smaller communities of like 2-5k playes.
Which server, which server?
When you think it can not be worse than Diablo 3 launch xD
Why does it have servers? makes no sense :S
A hilarious blunder. Far too many isolation chambers here unless a server only fits a few dozen players. Shame that they're forcibly splitting up the few people who play, giving them an experience that will appear even more barren than it truly will be.
I thought I heard something about this game having areas that would feel kinda like an MMO or perhaps I am mixing that up with diablo4. But I am guessing the servers is just for latency and capacity issues as it is a mobile title and they are going off the number of people who have signed up to play in advance so they want to meet demand. But if it doesnt have cross server grouping like WoW does then that might mess up playing with people you know. Granted they can just roll a new character. But I have friends from Diablo3 I havent talked to in years they might want to come play together after Ive put in hundreds of hours just to find we arent on the same server and if neither of us wants to start over... Go back to being non-speaking "friends" i guess.I havent had anyone to game with in like 3 years now. Despite being an online only game similar to how wow is I will be all by myself once again. Even if my brother plays having to be like "Oh yea play on server X"Also servers were named after locations and characters. Wheres Gheed? Did they really screw up in naming the servers and called him GREED not GHEED? lol
