Chief executive and co-founder Mike Morhaime stated, “We wanted to make sure as many players as possible were able to log on and play on day one. We're pleased that so many people around the world have already picked up a copy of the game, and we look forward to welcoming even more players to Battle.net in the weeks and months ahead.”

  1. Wow it’s was sold that fast, its no doubts it’s the fastest selling strategy game. Tyiepr despite all the negative attacks before the launch date they still made the highest market.

  2. It's insane the buzz around this game and how many people are going crazy about it.

    Week 1 of its launch has been fun for me, but not the greatest thing since sliced bread.
