    I wonder how they will have people test the RMAH. Maybe just give everyone fake money in their account? It will be interesting to see if anyone is able to make a "profit" during this testing. It should have implications for the RMAH after release.

    Someone on the Gamespot PC forums said they got one yesterday. Maybe they just didn't check their email for a while, but I wouldn't be surprised if a few people were invited. It's just that there are millions that want in the beta, but <1% get invites each wave. There's only a tiny chance anyone from the forum community will get one.

    there were a few that one won and got honorable mentions


    Sorry, I hate misspellings like that.

    Anyways, I was impressed with the Azmodan one. I'm sure some of the entries were planned a few months ahead, but this guy only had a week to do planning as well as carving.

    Good luck at EG. I hope Boubouille will have enough time to do both sites well. I've heard he works nonstop pretty much for MMO-Champion, so hoepfully he has enough free time for Diablo Fans.

  • posted a message on No release date?
    My prediction was right about no release date at Blizzcon. =) Still, they said it's coming sooner than expected. Maybe it could be January release? I still feel like there's a lot of design stuff up in the air with Diablo 3. Some stuff we know about like Demon Hunter resource changes. I bet there's a lot more stuff behind the scenes they haven't decided on yet. They can't say a release date until the basic design is finalized.

  • posted a message on What is BlizzChat?
    It's basically a round table between Blizzard devs and fans. Fans can discuss things with the devs more personally than at a panel. I don't think there is any stream coverage of it. If you look at the map, it's just a little conference room where players can meetup with developers.

    My WoW account is ending next week, but I'm not resubbing for this. I would only play WoW 3-4 months before ditching it for D3. It's too bad they did this offer so late. I would have done it last year definitely when Cataclysm was coming out. I guess they are hurting for subscriptions right now.

    It's a mixture of both but not an even mixture. In Diablo 2 for how I played, it was about 80% cooperative and 20% competitive. Competitive was only when I was bored of the cooperative monster killing. Like we finished killing a boss or got through a quest. People were bored and decided to do some duels. I usually lost, but I enjoyed the break from doing the same thing over and over. This is most likely what I will do in Diablo 3 too. Mostly play cooperative monster killing, and PvP only occasionally to take a break from the normal game. But what gets me addicted is getting new and better items, not beating everyone at PvP.

    I think it's too over the top. I'm not asking for real physics, but I don't think enemies should literally fly out of the screen as shown in that video by Force. Half or 1/3 normal gravity is okay, but 1/6 (moon) is too much.

  • posted a message on D2 Ladder Reset: Season 9
    I bet their decision is related to Diablo 3 release date. They wanted to make sure there is enough time for a new ladder before the new release. Assuming a March release, that leaves about 5 months for this ladder season. Starting a new ladder season will help people stay focused on Diablo a little more (many have gone back to D2) while they wait out the delay.
