Diablo III Catch-All

I think the process is entirely random. It is a good conspiracy theory though. To add to it, maybe Blizzard doesn't want WoW players spending time playing Diablo III beta, in fears that they might stop playing WoW and cancel their accounts.

Except that Blizzard is rewarding our WoW addiction by giving us Diablo 3 for free at launch...

But only if you buy the annual pass (another way they are getting people to keep subscribing).

I don't suppose you'd care to expound? Is it at the beta or people in the beta because you are not?

My Battletag is Certis#1816 .

Friend. Me. Up.

I'm trying. They won't let me play.

Oh, and Nimcosi, I will find a way to slap you through the internet.

Agreed on that. It quite clearly stated what the date they were asking was for.

As for the can't connect error, I got it once, retried and managed to long in fine. But given how laggy it seems, I'd wager that their servers are getting slammed right now seeing as there was probably a huge amount of beta invites that went out today, extrapolating from how many folks here got them.

Fixed it. Ran it as administrator and it went right through. Schweet.

Got my invite last night. Haven't been able to login yet. Can't remember my Battle tag right now. I'll post tomorrow.

Now I suppose I should update the beta client so I can actually try grouping?

So having played through what they let you do with one character my only real criticism is the skill and stats system. I really don't like that i have almost no say in these.

Played through all of the content in 2 player co-op as a Barbarian. My partner was a Wizard. I have to say it was fun but ultimately disappointing. I'm probably being too critical since it's a small content beta but beyond co-op I don't see this game doing anything that Torchlight didn't already do. Sure there's a wider range of skills and you're able to switch between them anytime they're not on cool down but a lot of them feel useless. I hope the full version answers "why did this take any longer than 2-3 years?"

It just doesn't feel like a Blizzard game.

The character I've played to max level (13) is a monk. Early on, I didn't see much need for some of the abilities, but later on I noticed some interesting choices there. For example, when I only had two abilities, it really made sense for one of them to be a spirit builder and one to be a spirit spender, which made for only a couple of possible choices. At that point, it really felt like there was no reason not to just use the one you start with because it was better than the alternatives.

But at the end, I had enough abilities I could have equipped at once to reasonably have two different spirit builders for my left and right click, that made things pretty different. At that point, I still liked having the short-range-cone attack as my base attack, but I could see real possibilities in using it alongside most of the other options to get more flexibility.

Of course, it feels at 13 [em]just[/em] like you're hitting the point where things open up, and you don't even have access to the gems or whatever they are that customize the abilities further.

I dunno. I expect I'm going to get both D3 and TL2, and they'll be fun in different ways. I definitely feel like I know better what things will look like as you get to higher and higher levels in TL2 than I know what they'll look like in D3.

One thing I worry about with D3 is that there kind of feels with the blacksmith and stuff that there's a high emphasis on playing multiple characters through and having later characters be twinked up by the earlier ones. And... that's just not how I like to play these sorts of games.

I'm in too. FourD #1193. Not sure when I'm actually going to get a chance to play, though. Is there any information out there on how long the beta will go for?

I just had a weird experience. I went to check my battle.net account to see if i was in beta. I know should've had an email, but wanted to look there just to see.

I wasnt able to log in. I had a wtf moment and thought i had actually been hacked. I submitted a ticket to blizzard letting them know i thought i was hacked. They came back and said everything looked good and i didnt seem to be hacked.

So i called them and told them i still wasnt able to log in.

Seems like folks are going out with email lists and creating battle.net accounts. which in essences blocks you out of your account until you call in. They cant do anything with your account well except maybe try brute force attmpts on your email account itself. Still nothing was harmed and they reset everything and i was able to get in.

I'm also in the beta.

That's kind of freaky. And monumentally annoying.

Every time I visit this thread and see that someone else got in, I am forced to go check my account.

DAMN YOU, INTERNET!

I checked just because Ranalin's story. I got in also.... but got no e-mail.

I do not know my name yet, not sure where the name comes from. I will check/install it when I get home late tonight.

I've been in for a few too. Battle tag: KilanAsh#1658

Why do I keep clicking on this thread? It's just making me more angry.

Husband got in... me, not so lucky. Round one, FIGHT!

The account I created for my dog got an invite!

Error 3003 makes me sad.

I always look at an explosion in comments as a potential announcement of a release date. Then just see it's more people in the beta and not me...

You know in a different forum this statement could be taken quite a bit differently.

I'm not sure that the game is going to "click" for me in the long run, but I'll give it a shot.

If I let it hump my leg, can I use the account? If not, then, yes, lets kill it with Lasercats for extra irony.

It appears that many of the patches will wipe your friends list. So if you have recently friend-ed someone, you may need to do so again.
