Diablo III Catch-All

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!

Come on Grenn, let's kill Liquid's dog in retribution.

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...

If anyone is down for some multiplayer.

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.

Oh my, +1 indeed

Watched my friend play through some of the beta content last night. Looks awesome. Can't wait to give it a go.

Currently my thought is it'll run for about 24 hours after I get a beta invite.

It's kind of funny, but given all the hooplah back in the day about the art being too bright, I'm wishing I could make some of the colors a bit deeper. The single gamma slider doesn't quite give me what I want.

FTFY

Uhhh. Gotta run. That was probably one joke too many and Grenn is probably coming to hurt me now..

I hope it becomes more difficult. Even an easy/normal/hard would be easy just by changing stats to like 75%/100%/125%, because I can breeze through the beta with almost no resistance. I remember frantically using pots and always having that feeling that I could die in D1 and D2, I just don't get that here.

I haven't played the beta so I can't comment on its difficulty, but I don't remember anything being really difficult to get through before Butcher in D1 and Blood Raven in D2. Perhaps things ramp up after Skeleton king.

Ya the first few levels were boringly easy. Even the dungeons unless you ran into an elite wiht nasty resists.

I could be mis-remembering the old diablos, and hopefully it does ramp up, I always remember feeling a lot of tension playing these.

Don't forget they're rolling out a 4th difficulty level (Inferno), so my guess is that people with experience are going to breeze through the starting difficulty and start to get challenged around Nightmare difficulty. There's been some statements that the initial difficulty is going to be a bit on the easy side to hook people on the game, or something to that effect. But it sounds like it's really hard to gauge the difficulty of the game based on the slice they're using for the beta.
