At which point you're advocating ... what? At that point the servers will be up, so legitimate players will be able to play.
Plus, I believe the server acts similarly to an MMO: no server, no mobs.
I am not sure what you think I am saying? I have a legitimate D3 license, I bought the game. It's more about the fact of having it downloaded and fully installed for the minute D3 launches instead of hoping your download doesn't suck, due to the hordes of people downloading it at launch.
You are correct though in the server, the server 100% handles mobs, npcs, health, damage, etc. But you are wrong in the thought that getting it downloaded, installed, and patched ahead of schedule was in relation to having a private server.
