    DIABLO III Collectors edition UK and AU VERSION

    Hey guys since the DIABLO III Collectors Edition is sold out in AUS i am planning to buy it over in the UK and get it over here in AUS. MY question is, is there any difference at all with the UK version compared to AUS or they are completely identical? thanks.

    If you are specifically using a UK copy of the collector's edition, then as I understand it, you will be bound to the EU Real-Money Auction House.

    That should be the only difference, as far as I'm aware.

    Of course, how Zoot understands something doesn't necessarily have much bearing on how things actually are.

    It's possible (and more likely imo) that regional restrictions (like the ones on the RMAH) are based purely off your Battle.Net account location.

    However, we don't know for sure yet and anyone that tries to tell you otherwise better provide a verifiable source.

    What? Lol, steady on, Eagle.

    Besides, all you did was the same thing as me - state your opinion based on currently-known information then add a caveat that you could be wrong.

    I don't even remember what it is you seem to have a grudge against me for. =p

    Copys arent region specific. UK collectors Edition will be fine for Aus.


    except China which is region locked.

    lol, it's not a grudge but the caveat is important. I prefer that people are clear when they are speculating, especially when it could effect how someone else spends their hard earned money.

    I also added a caveat, that's what I said :p. My choice of words "as I understand" is that.

    perhaps you just shouldn't post false information at all.

    I don't think you understand the difference between false and uncertain.

    Autti is right actually, it doesn't matter which version of the game you have.

    As long as it's a boxed copy you will be able to play on EU when it launches, and NA when that launches. Locked regions include China and Korea only.

    Moreover, if you have a digital US/AUS version of the game, you will not be able to play on EU while you wait for the NA servers to go up because the digital version does not unlock until 12:00 am pst.

    Cheers

    The difference is that your post assumes the information is uncertain, but your post is false as it is false information. Happy?

    Ya going to agree, eagle, you don't know what's up tbh. You can select which region you want to play in, download the version of the game client you want (English, Spanish, Japanese), and freely switch between auction houses. The limitations come with characters and account balance totals. The region you select will have access to 10 total characters and a designated total for your battle.net account to be used only for that regions AH.

    For example you can have 10 characters on the NA server with $100 in your account balance while simultaneously having 10 characters and €250 on the EU server. You just can't mix and match which characters and currencies go where. Buy the game from wherever and whatever version you want..it doesn't matter.

    Re: DIABLO III Collectors edition UK and AU VERSION

    Have you got a source confirming that? Because it seems possible that your ability to join the EU when it goes live could be related to account region as well.

    Although they might not have bothered with that restriction seeing as it's unlikely that many boxed copies will be in peoples hands outside of the EU; but I am curious if anyone from Blizzard has specifically confirmed what you say.

    Wow, I don't understand how hostile some people are getting in this thread. :loving:

    People are acting like someone's mom got insulted.

    If you feel that someone's incorrect, there's no need to be nasty about it. I don't think anyone's trying to purposely feed misinformation.

    Are people getting nasty though? They way I read it they're just disagreeing, I don't detect much hostility. A certain abruptness maybe.
