    What was unexpected? We've known about the eBalance since the Press Event in August.

    posted a message on I just want to tell the diablofans staff..

    What has he done right that Sixen didn't? Serious question, I'm not trying to undermine him or anything, but I haven't seen much change since he came. Specially not a "huge boost".
    I dunno, him and I just have a different theory of what deserves to be spotlighted. It appears to me that he sees anything and everything as being frontpage-worthy (the classic Flux-style!) whereas I didn't like that approach. To me, anything and everything is what belongs in our forums, the frontpage should only be used for important/big announcements and editorials... Just a different style is all, not that either one of us is "right" or "wrong," ;).

    posted a message on The End of an Era
    I'll try to keep this short and sweet... My time here as the lead Administrator on DiabloFans has come to an end. It seems like just yesterday I made my introductory newspost telling everyone who I was... :QQ:. It's been quite an adventure running this place and helping shape it into what it's become today, and I am certainly going to miss it. While I am stepping down as Administrator, I'll still certainly be around the Diablo community. You'll be able to catch me around here, on the Battle.net forums, and on the weekly DiabloWiki.com - DiabloCast DiabloCast's still; i'm just moving onto darker, bloodier, and more gothic pastures. What that means, exactly, will be unveiled in the very near future, ;).

    For those of you curious, Boubouille from MMOChampion will be taking over as the lead Administrator. I have complete faith that he'll be able to run DFans with ease, afterall, MMOChampion is the leading WoW site nowadays, ;).

    posted a message on Unofficial Diablo III Armory

    DiabloFans now has an unofficial iPhone App, Diablo III Armory. It's not exactly made solely by us DiabloFans (but it is made by a good friend of ours), and it's pulling our news stream, so you can get DiabloFans news from just about anywhere now! In addition to our news feed, the App offers the following:

    • News feed from diablofans.com
    • Game information page (FAQ)
    • Classes page to showcase each class and their skills.
    • A skill calculator built completely for the iPhone platform.
    • Easy swiping while viewing skills to see rune effects.
    • Calculator can save/name builds, load them later, and even print out a Bnet URL of your build (in case you want to share it).
    • And more to come, ;).

    The app is completely free as well, so go download it and enjoy Sanctuary from anywhere on Earth! Those of you with Android devices (I only have an Android :() will have to wait for an app. Whether or not we develop an Android app as well is solely based on the success of the iPhone app. For more screenshots of the app, you can check the temporary support site, or watch the video below.

    posted a message on Beta Key Contest

    As most of you are already aware, a few of the various Blizzard Influencers and fansites have been given beta keys (see our beta key image above?) to give away to our dearest fans, ;). Since we know that you're all hungering for the Beta, we're going to keep it short, sweet, and to the point! Each week, we're going to have a screenshot to show and your job is to add a caption. Whether the caption be epic or completely for the lulz, we don't care! We'll choose the best one or two entries each week and they'll be granted a Diablo III Beta Key.

    posted a message on BlizzCon: Foo Fighters and Media

    That's right! The Foo Fighters have just been announced as the band that will be playing at this years' BlizzCon and TAFKAL80ETC will be returning and opening for them! For quite some time, it was speculated that deadmau5 would be doing the concert due to his recent trip to BlizzHQ. Whether or not either of them could top Tenacious D will be something we'll have to wait and see, though... How can you top Jack Black? Then again, the same was said about Ozzy; we all wondered how exactly Blizzard would top him...


    Official Blizzard Quote:



    Over the course of their 16-year career, the Foo Fighters have sold tens of millions of records, won half a dozen Grammy awards, and raised countless voices in singalongs of iconic anthems like "Everlong," "My Hero," "Learn to Fly", "All My Life," “Best of You,” and “The Pretender.” Foo Fighters' BlizzCon debut marks founder Dave Grohl's triumphant return to the convention after playing drums for Tenacious D in last year's show, and comes during an international arena, stadium, and festival tour promoting their seventh album, the international #1 record Wasting Light.

    Opening up the concert will be The Artist Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain, who are returning to BlizzCon following a two-year interstellar tour through the Koprulu sector. Blizzard's in-house metal band will amp up the crowd with an earth-shaking set of both familiar and brand-new songs drawn from the Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo universes before turning the stage over to Foo Fighters for the main event.

    In addition, the Sons of the Storm will be returning for their very own signing panel as usual.

    Official Blizzard Quote:



    We're shy of a month away from the sixth BlizzCon in history. And once again, the Sons of the Storm will be there in full force! We will have a one-hour signing session on the second day of BlizzCon:

    Saturday, October 22, 10AM to 11AM at the developer signing area

    So if you would like to meet and greet...or get your sign on and your whine on (be warned Red Shirts!), then mark the date and be there on the dot. Lines tend to get crazy! Remember to double-check the signing schedule for any changes.

    Also worth mentioning, the BlizzCon Media section has just recently been updated to include a ton of media from every BlizzCon thus far, as well as the few World Wide Invitationals. Anyone who wants to get a feel of what the environment is like should go check it out!
