Well, you see, here's how it is.

When the sun is at, we'll say, position Q over the horizon, while the moon is at position R in the sky which causes the Earth's axis to tilt just slightly...ever so slightly. Then you have to look up to the former planet of Pluto and see how it aligns with the moon at R, we'll call this position S.

This all plays into how the ocean's tide is going and this as well, is another variable, T (for Tide...get it? XD ok...didn't think so). Then we need to look to the sun and see how the solar flares are coming forth from the sun's surface and how much gamma radiation each burst causes, we'll call this U.

Then, we need to look at the company of Blizzard. This, in and of itself, is several variables; V, W, X; mostly money, caring and how many people can be affected at once. Then we need the variable Y for how many forum posts/threads Blizzard can count on for saying 'scheduled maintenance'.

Of course, then all this needs to be divided by the square root of PI.

Z, for all practical purposes, has to equal nothing else but 'working as intended'.

So...we get something like this

{[(Q+R+S+T)U - V*W*X] + Y} / square root of pi = Z






And that's why US players play on EU servers, Nika.

^ What she said.

Anyway, it's because a lot of people work late, or otherwise odd hours. Take the 8pm-4am graveyard shift for example. When those people come home from work, if they want to play a little D3, OOPS. Servers down for maintenance. But oh look! The EU servers just came up!

Not to mention the Australians and all of the other non-US players that get stuck playing on the US servers by default. US downtime is Aussie prime time, so again - off to the EU servers they go.

It's a simple solution to a pretty simple problem, really. And since we're not region-locked, just make some characters on each side of the pond!

I'm up to level 42 on my barb, making steady progress through nightmare. Nearing the end of Act 2.

If anyone is down, I'm looking to finish off Inferno Act 2 on my DH. I'm at Zultun Kulle.

more for WoW than for D3 (35-40 DH, Mage, monk, ~25 WD) purposes, but nonetheless: JoeBravo#2494 EU

You need to get around 29k hp to solo him to survive the Cone he does.

It's a bad idea to try to gear for surving the grip + attack. He very visibly telegraphs the grip, you need to work on your ninja dodge skills I think as the attack is extremely easy to avoid. Also can't a DH just smoke screen out of it? Sorry for getting further off topic, I'll edit in my battle tag when I get home from work; I wouldn't mind giving you a hand if you still need help later.

Yea, his grab and smash is easily avoided, just when he points, strafe or smoke screen.

If you want, I can some down to help you; getting really f'ing annoyed with Belial and his disappearing one shot minions.

You can actually out-range the hook as a demon hunter and still damage him with Nether Tentacles and Hungering Arrow, any other ability will not be able to reach him.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.
