    yup, considered good form to include links when you actually want us to read stuff.

    Jake, you are the eternal optimist, aren't you?
    We'll get it when blizz is ready to give it to us, which will be 2 months after PC version if we're lucky. :)

    Hmm, interesting...

    They are going to make it so that after you die, you will get back half the experience you lost if you go retrieve your body without quitting. Guess they wanted to provide an incentive for doing it. Good idea. It's stupid to do it now, since you have nothing to gain and everything to lose. Having something to gain might stop some people (including me) from quitting and restarting. Of course, half the exp back may not be incentive enough, if I just leveled up for example.

    Hey the original was less than a month after the PC version. Might as well give Blizzard the benefit of the doubt. :D

    800x600 resolution will be nice. But more important is to fix the gettin lag-disconnect-death problem. I still cant figure out how to get around this except for maybe multiplayer or living next to the servers (Im in Dallas). No one interviewing them even brings it up - I mean, what in the world is up with that???

    Defeat lag

    Yes you can. The best way is you not play during lag time. If it's below 200k you can play anything. Always have a necro on your account so you can play during 1000k lag or less and during sudden lag periods. Don't play after school or afterwork, lag is pretty heavy, due to mass amount of asian people playing.

    I did try and play outside of lag time. Between 8:00-15:00 pst and always made sure there are less than 22,000 users on and never if I create a game and it puts me in a queue. My pings on my DSL remain less than 300, and then all of a sudden - bam, without warning that I could tell.

    Oh well.
