    Whats the point of inviting Sixen and Force btw?


    What's better than inviting a bunch of true Diablo Fans?

    Blizzard always have one of the largest marketing campaigns in the industry. I'm sure they can afford inviting a few, truly dedicated fans of the Diablo universe, instead of some random un-inspiring media-guy. Also, as some of the others already have pointed out - Curse.com is a pretty large game portal afterall. :)

    I kinda felt it would be August since there's no system revealed yet (after runestone that is) and it's almost July. All I can say is lucky bastards! =D Not only you guys get to play beta, you get to see blizzard HQ once again. Oh I wish the blizzard HQ was done when I beta tested diablo 2.
    I love all loot fest kind of game! I will be playing all of them for the next few years. Loot fest games I'm looking forward to: LotR: War in the North, Torchlight 2, Borderlands 2 and of course Diablo 3.

    That seems like a Sing of Beta to me...
    Anyway, I'd like to know (if possible) whether or not they will make more PvP games apart from Arena. We will probably not see them on release, but I'm curious about that being implemented in a future expansion.

    It couldn't hurt for me to ask, but i'm going to tell you the answer is likely no. The whole point of them making the arena is to completely remove PvP from PvE play, ;P.


    I think what he means is other types of PVP modes instead of just deathmatch. for example capture the flag, territory control, protect the VIP etc..

    Firstly, really pleased for you guys. You must be stoked :D

    I'm sure people will disagree here but in my eyes, beta being ready for world first view pretty much means it's ready to go. Looking at the dates, 27th July is a Wednesday. 4 days to review feedback and prep responses to questions and comments raised when you view it ready for the torrent of forum posts after the Monday 1st August disclosure. It wouldn't shock me if beta opened to the other lucky players Friday the 5th/Saturday 6th.

    That said, I could also see it maybe getting put off until the last week of August. But not later.

    There'll be lots of "you lucky *****" type comments about you going i'm sure, but you guys have earnt it with your solid commitment to the community and Blizz recognise that. So do I. Well done.

    Couple question though~

    Clan Tags? Example: [D3Fans]polarducky
    How is Trading gonna work?
    Have some kind of currency for D3 instead of using 3rd party(D2jsp)?
    Anything different from SP and MP in general of gameplay?

    Congratulation and good luck! I hope you look into beta very well... and Hope you find some kind of bug or something so they can fix before beta comes!

    Post up your questions here if you haven't already.

    This is awesome news. So we're likely looking at a mid august beta in my opinion. Showing it off to the press July 27th, we'll get that news August 1st. Then they are gonna want to let people play it ASAP after that since a lot of info will come from the press reveal.

    :D

    what is the point of a 4 day long NDA??? Why not just give us all the info as it comes. The only reason i could see a NDA being used is if beta was going to come out on Aug 1st, so they would want to wait for all the info on the game be released along with it. Otherwise NDA is pointless.

    Well they've got people coming from China? So they may want to make sure all the fansites have the information and are back home before they give the okay to release it.
  • #56
    I'm not sure I can make it a whole month O_O Want!!!

    I doubt the beta will release on the first, my guess is that they want to be fair to everyone who might take longer to commute back home (I think someone mentioned that). Plus, then everyone can organize the info and release it in a pretty format, instead of just dumping everything they saw into a blob and posting it as fast as possible :P

    Its good to see that your hardwork pays off! Congrats! Cant wait to read the 50 pages when you come back, and yes I expect 50 pages....:)

    Well the Heart of the Swarm preview had a NDA for a week or so, I believe. So don't expect anything big.

    Well congrats! Have fun! I have 1 question/idea for you ask/tell the devs. Any chance we could get a cool co-op gameplay type like castle defense? Where we could have a king or some sort of VIP and we have to protect the castle from being over run by demons? And have it layered so once the monsters breach the first section of the wall you fall back to the next section kinda thing? Just an idea, see what they think.

    P.S. Tell them I LOVE BEER!!!
