Update #2 - The forum random posts and Facebook/Twitter contests have officially started and 20 people already got beta keys! Congratulations to the winners!
Update - The issues some people had to register on the forums should be fixed.
Also, I would like to point out that the Random Forum Post Contest is exactly what it says, random. The reason why I didn't specify how many hours we'll go back to pick winners is because it will be extremely random to make sure you don't have to post every 2 hours or something to be eligible.
Diablofans Diablo 3 Beta Key Contest! 450 Keys to win!
Blizzard was kind enough to give us 450 Diablo 3 Beta Keys and we're giving them all to you through 3 different contests! The first 2 contests are starting right now and you can already get ready for them! The 3rd one will happen a little later when everyone is aware of it.
1. Random Post Contest - 200 Keys
This contest will allow you to win a beta key just by posting on our forums! If you don't have an account yet, all you have to do is Create an Account to start posting! Of course, you'll have to follow a few rules:
Posts must be constructive
Posts must be on topic with the original post
It must add to the conversation (ex: no “I agree with this.” alone)
Must be at least three sentences
Must contain no flaming or trolling
At random times throughout one or two weeks, we will check the forum and give keys randomly to 10 people who posted something constructive in the past x hours. Times will be spread evenly across timezones to make sure everyone get a fair chance and the contest will last about 2 weeks, plenty of time for you to win something!
2. Facebook and Twitter Quiz - 200 Keys
Think you know a few things about the Diablo universe? Good, because you can get beta keys just by answering a few questions! Throughout the next 2 weeks we will ask questions on our Facebook and Twitter Account. The 5 first people who give the right answer get a beta key, it's that simple!
We will make sure to ask questions at different times of the day to give everyone a fair chance, no matter what your timezone is!
3.What will be your character's build in Diablo 3? - 50 Keys -Not Yet Started-
For those of you who don't feel like posting on the forums or who don't think they will be lucky enough to catch a question as fast as possible, we have something much simpler!
Good, its taking forever to release D3. I started playing D2LOD again just to cut the waiting (first time Im playing paladin, now already on nightmare :D). Would be awesome to get in beta for D3, because its gonna be legendary i bet!
YAY more beta keys! Been trying really hard to find new things to do to hold me over until diablo 3! Been hoping for a beta key to fulfull that void lol. C'mon beta contest! lemme win something! Pre-congrats to all the winners!
This is one of the "beta" beta contests Blizz has given us...not just random luck, you actually get rewarded for your creativity (wink wink). And don't you think that "It must add to the conversation (ex: no “I agree with this.” alone" is kinda useless, since no right-minded person will give a beta key to someone who just post:
You have no Idea how paranoid I just became with checking my facebook and twitter. On twitter you have just short of 4200 followers and on facebook, you have 4800. Do the math, thats 9000 for a total of 200 of the keys (of coarse I am one of those who follow/like both). Just gotta be that quick on your toes to answer those questions now! Best of luck to everyone!
Just what these forums needed, more people talking for the sake of talking... =) Can't even quote someone in a conversation, without my post being 5-6 places below where I intended it to be... =.= Most of them inane.
Hypno I think it's because of the shameless spam advertisement =P
