    It would also make sense if Blizzard intended to run the sweepstakes for at least its full duration, since it'd be bad press to stop them earlier than intended, while as prolonging it would be only positive.


    It would not be bad PR at all to stop the beta sweepstakes early because I'm sure everyone and their gerbil would rather beta end and the game release.

    It should be like, if you buy the collectors edition on blizzards website, you just automaticly (spelled?) gets diablo 3 attached to your account. That would be both a win for blizzard and a win for the diablo fans.


    You mean D3 CE key (not just standard).

    My reaction: Does this mean Nightmare will really just be another tutorial and we won't have a real challenge until Hell?


    Difficulty is SO subjective it's not even funny. The point is they are naturally going to create a mold of the base skill from the casual audience. So expect the tiers to shift based on your experience. They want one difficulty to be the "wtf this is insanely hard" area. For casuals it will be too damn frustrating and they will just be happy with beating Hell (by using what they learned from the other two difficulties). Inferno will hopefully require YOU (and by proxy, the community on forums, chat, etc) to come up with new strategies that the other difficulties did not essentially introduce you to by making it pretty obvious what you needed to do to survive. So hardcore fans will be willing to face through Inferno, casuals will not...at least unless they decide to cross that threshold and start changing things in their personal life to make more time to master the game.

    Nightmare is just going to feel like New Game+ with higher stats. In fact it will probably be easier in comparison to Normal in some ways if you do any farming in Normal before hitting Nightmare since I'm sure Nightmare's creature level will be only just above what you saw at the end of Normal. You might get caught off guard by a new mob special property or combo of properties but you may not even die from it. It's just going to be there to show you of how they will ramp the harder difficulties up.

    Since it's online only getting the CE a day early doesn't give them any advantage.


    Diablo was never about competing or PVP and it's not a mmo either.


    No but Blizzard's not going to give anyone early access for buying the CE. This is simply a way of making sure CE fans don't get screwed out of a midnight start w/ their perks.

    Can we just vote for 2013 as well so I don't have to do it again?

    4 months of WoW is not $60 if you do more than the month-to-month plan. So you don't break even if you're already saving money with the multiple month subs.

    They really should just sell the CE the day before and not turn on the servers until 12:01 AM on launch day so everyone starts at the same time. Since it's online only getting the CE a day early doesn't give them any advantage.

    Blizzard could just let people download the client. Without a registered copy on your b.net account, you won't get anywhere anyway.

    I don't think they would risk some people datamining the release client and allowing everyone to know exactly all item stats, all bosses stats, and what are the secret levels and their bosses (with 100% certainty this time, unlike the beta which has "encrypted" stuff) even before release.

    At least that's what I would think if I was a developer.


    Encrypt stuff just like beta and have a small patch on release that unencrypts.
