    Ok, here's my guess.

    I know it's a little (too much) conspiracy-like, but I can see a "hidden release date" in that blue post :
    5092 bugs. Well, who cares?... oh wait it's been written two times. 5092 + 5092. Mmhhh...
    Ok , here it is: (50) 9/2 + (50) 9/2 equals (100) 18/4. Do you see anything? February 9th, next blizzard conference call date.
    And it leads to April 18th , release date!!!!!!! Now what's that (100) for? I think it's something like "hell yeah, 100% sure it's our release date!"
    K k... I know the way out :)

    Peace!


    Don't want to be a dick but 9/2 + 9/2 isn*t equal 18/4.... sorry bro :/
    But good guess anyway

    Very optimistic lol.

    I read that post as it took 5 months to find 5000 bugs, then cheers to 5000 more(or at least 5 more months of beta). :(

    5092 has nothing to do with 50 (9/2) either. 50(9/2/) is actually 450/2 = 225.

    No problem mate, but I didn't want to be "arithmetically correct" :D I added them separetely, one by one, like "(9 + 9) / (2 + 2)" , not as 2 fractions heheh :P

    9/2 + 9/2 = 18/2 which is 9, so ya february 9th. WOOT

    Any chance blizzard will make the beta open to all prior to the release date? Maybe change it to a demo format? Not actually sure of the difference, but i think they used a demo for diablo 2.
  • #291
    ok heres my calculation


    jay wilson uses the loo 5 times a day during a normal work day, 5 x 6 = 30 (6 day week)

    the diablo team have 46 parking spaces = 46

    24 of them smoke = 24

    12 of them wear white socks = 12

    21 of them are women 11 of them go commando = 32


    if you add all that it, it comes to 144


    now if you multiply that by how many bugs are in the latest report which is 5092 you get a total of

    733248

    now if u add em...... 7+3 = 10 3+2 = 5 4+8 = 12 gives us 10 5 12

    now if you subract the amount of diablo games from the 2nd number.......5 - 3 = 2

    add that 2 to the 1st nimber 10+2 = 12


    and if you fit it all together...well my friends i give you




    12 - 3 - 12


    hehehehehehehe

    nope. zero. they've commented and said they will not do an open beta and the demo will come AFTER release... :/

    So i just went to Daeity's (yeah yeah whatever) site and found this:



    This isn't made up:

    US (NEW) - http://us.battle.net...10_21_2011#blog
    EU (OLD) - http://eu.battle.net...en/blog/3170106

    Also this on the EU forums: http://eu.battle.net...opic/3269839265

    All the articles are globally released, meaning everyone is suppose to be the exact same. The difference is still there...so no early release for us?!?!?!

    Edit: And since I'm not a web aficionado, I can't get the initial US one before the change to 100% confirm it.


    A tweet from Bashiok about it (http://twitter.com/#...705098294833152):


    Why the change? http://i.imgur.com/1PSnh.jpg Legal aspect or do you need more polishing time ?



    That change was made a few months ago. No reason. Just a better idea to not have it in print all over the place "just in case".


    This is probably nothing...

    But what still confuses me is that the EU one is still the same...

    According to jeuxvideo.com the game will be released at March 28 ( http://www.jeuxvideo.com/news/2012/00056085-une-date-de-sortie-pour-diablo-iii.htm ). Still I think it's pure speculation, I'll only believe any date given by Blizzard and only Blizzard. Still it's still on Q1 interval

    hey guys

    Freddy's girlfriend here (my pc not on and lazy to log into my account)

    the day of announcement is just over the horizon

    ive been a user on this website for many years , good to see some old faces are still here, been playing D2 since live not like freddy, hes a newbie and thinks he knows the game cos he reads forums :P i will show him what hardcore really is.....i havent been on fans.com since last summer, i got bummed out over certain delays

    freddy has been passing info on to me by giggling or laughing at trolls and suspect release dates, i usually say 'yeah, we shall see'........but the last couple of days have caught my eye

    dont like the changes one bit, ok some dont affect my style of play or what i want to get out of it...i want a badass female demon hunter who will kick the god holy shit out of any man / demon that stands in her way
    some are part of diablo I, II, now they are gone :boom:

    but hey, who are we to complain, diablo 3 is its own game, its own breed, it has to lose old ways to move on to the future

    as for release date, i really have to agree with freddy and some of you guys march looks very likely

    once the game is live i will ponder coming back to the site, i dont like blogs or forums anymore, too many negative people out there

    so to rid the world of it, im sending a force of T-1000s to destroy any troll that lays amongst us :ban:

    so yes comrades, i will see you on that faithful day, keep your heads up, February is gone be great month :kitty:

    Not only is it unofficial, but it may well piss them off enough to move it out a few weeks while finding a way to punish the leaker.

    Remember the potential blizcon in vegas?

    doubt that would happen, would it? i cant see them doing that over a website saying a date, if that was the case then we on the forums are delaying it with our random dates /shits hits the fan

    but i dont know about vegas, what happened?

    IIRC, someone at the vegas convention center (which is huge, has a monorail stop the strip, and would generally be an awesome place for a bcon) leaked a potential schedule. (Here's the speculative part:) Someone in Irvine got pissed, and realized that the entire thing would be much harder to control than doing it a few miles up the 5 in Anaheim, and killed it. They probably also didn't shed tears at the idea of the leaker getting in trouble.

    The thing is, with digital downloads, Bliz has more leverage than ever, excepting the REAL big dogs like Target or Walmart, I wouldn't be shocked to see them freeze out a retailer for the week of release if they did a big, obvious leak. Of course, if Vegas is hard to control, imagine trying to keep a leash on retailers in Asia or Europe...

    a schedule at a convention center VS. releasing a game globablly.

    ya i can see where those are similar. blizzard would totally freeze out a retailer and delay profits out of spite. what company wouldnt? thats just smart business

    Almost as smart as taking a dozen years to make a sequel to a monster hit. Or buying a studio just to close it a year later. Or selling out to a guy like Kotick. Or totally missing the sweet spot of a title's popularity with a movie version because of creative control issues.

    Yet the bumblebee flies.

    yea because those things again are comparable to freezing out a retailer out of spite. they arent 12 year olds. lol
