    posted a message on Some D3 concerns & questions.
    Didn't count the time I was idle, but around 30 minutes should be right. Last time it happened to me was for the duration of a LoL game that lasted around 45 minutes.

    When paused, you're considered idle anyway.

    posted a message on Some D3 concerns & questions.
    - Pausing. Can you pause D3? I read you cant and the closest thing to it is finding somewhere safe (town I presume) and... just standing there, which leads me to my next point.

    Yes. When playing alone, pressing "escape" gets you to the options and pauses the game for you. Going to town is pretty good too, since you get Town Portal quite early too.

    - Autokick. Will you get kicked from inactivity?

    Yes you are. Pretty much like in WoW, or even in Diablo II. When you stand idle too much time you get kicked. The quest progress is saved, though, so you can resume from the closest checkpoint when you get back.

    - Saving. Can you save at any point, or do you need to find a checkpoint?

    Character data is saved whenever there's a change, so it's like... all the time. "Save and Exit" doesn't even exist anymore, it's just "Exit". Save happens all the time.


    - Checkpoint Availability. I also read that sometimes checkpoints can be VERY far between... like 2 hours in some cases. More time than I usually even spend playing on a week night.

    In the beta they're pretty close to one another. Consider that the beta is about 3 hours if you explore every corner and kill every barrel (in addition to the monsters etc) and there's lots of checkpoints in it. I'd say there's a checkpoint every 10-15 minutes, but I could be a little off. Certainly not over 20 minutes, though.

    posted a message on How about sharing the beta now that everyone has the client?
    Sharing battle.net account info is against the Terms of Use that you have to press "Agree" to install the games, which very much makes it illegal. In addition to this (which is reason enough), the DiabloFans team will not be responsible for a possible account theft that could be the result of such "sharing". Because WoW and StarCraft II games (even Diablo II/StarCraft 1 licences may be attached) cost money and time and losing your account for being generous can be frustrating.

    With all that said... good luck getting a beta key, but the topic won't be discussed in our forums.

    Thread Locked.

    Yeah, they probably have a role to play in the Act1 storyline and they said the beta ends before the major stuff.

    We'll get to kill everything soon enough, though. The beta looks very polished already. And there doesn't appear to be any problems with it's integration to battle.net either. Fingers crossed for 2011 release!

    Oh, they are under NDA alright. The F&F beta was decided last minute (literally). And an NDA applies too for the duration of the F&F beta. That at least was what we knew till last night. Don't know if we'll get any new info on the matter. But honestly, I've never seen such a mess (as in leaks and stuff) by Blizzard before.

    I think it's going to be 20 seconds outside the town. Instantly in town, very much like WoW. It works quite well there too.
