I bought mine on 1st of May when pre-orders started and it got activated on launch day. Lucky for me, my old battlenet account's residence was in the Philippines. And although I used a Taiwanese Credit Card & billing residence, no questions were raised. :-) Now I'm enjoying playing the game (in Nightmare mode already) while my friends are still waiting for their English version game to be available here in Taiwan.


well I can't do that, since my copy is also registered and I can't register another Diablo III without revoking this one, and I have no idea how to do that...

I am trying to buy the english version online through battlenet. You can't use a credit card or paypal. You have to use battlenet points. How do you buy those in Taiwan? Does 7-11 have the point cards you can buy? Do you have to use cash or can you buy the point cards with a credit card?

You can play any version on any server. Currently the only differences are the languages available, and which server it defaults to.

I bought my International copy in the Taipei Underground Mall the day it was released. 1960nt I think it was.

I just started playing Diablo 3 two days ago. It definitely is a great and addictive game. I had played the first Diablo game back in the day. I only played a little bit of Diablo 2. The graphics, music, and gameplay are all fantastic with Diablo 3. It is very hard to pull myself away from this game.
I remember when the English version of this game first came out in Taiwan. I saw that some stores were selling the game for close to NT$3,000. The Chinese version was selling for around NT$1,500. I had seen many customers who had already bought the more expensive English version complain to store owners when the price suddenly dropped to around NT$1,950. As much as I had wanted this game I refused to purchase the English version for twice the price of the Chinese version. I have started to notice this trend in PC games (Chinese versions are much cheaper than their English counterparts).
Does anyone know if two people can play co-op together if they have different language versions of the game?

Hey all

I was wondering if the version of diablo 3 that you can get in 7/11 here in taiwan is the version where you can choose english as your language of choice or must I go to a specific store to get that version?

Battlenet and NID

Postby malfunktion » 11 Feb 2014, 15:01

Hey all

I also have a problem when I try and create a battlenet account. It asks me for an NID number. But I am a foreigner living in taiwan so I don't have one. I did some reading up on this and a few other people said that I could just ignore it but it doesnt allow me to continue without one?

Any Ideas on how to fix this problem.... maybe create the account using my homeland location? but then wouldnt I have a problem with installing Diablo 3 here and logging on to battlenet?
