Zero, you're the luckiest out of all of us. We all suffer equally from lack of Beta, but you, YOU my friend, have something to look forward to! Now please, tell me if this email from Blizz is real... >.>
being a moderator here doesn't guarantee I'll get a beta invite. Only a few staff members got it (Scyber, Sixen, Magistrate and Force, who I dont think is considered "staff"). I have the Blizzcon 2010 extra 5% chance though, so yeah. I haven't received anything yet, though
I'm pretty sure we'll know when closed beta begins. Bashiok said last Thursday they'd make a big deal out of it:
Official Blizzard Quote:
When closed beta begins there will be press releases, blog posts, twitter tweets, ticker tape parades, 30's style boxing, confetti manufacturing and expending, spit takes, coffee manufacturing and consuming, crying, handball matches (no waterfalls), news ports AND re-ports, anger, too many emails in my inbox, too many begging threads in this forum, and potentially a few happy people. You'll know.
So hold your horses, everyone. We've been waiting for 10 years for this damn game. A few more days won't hurt.
Then moderators on this forums should lock and delete all " CLOSED OPEN BETA STARTED " There will spam threads all over the Us/Eud3 forums when waves going out.
Our guns are lock and loaded.
The only reason this one is getting this much attention and being left open is because of Force's announcement video. It made everyone gather up and party celebrating the beginning of the closed beta.
I want some people to admit at least that they were wrong.
TB,Yogcast + Athene are all media. They are not F&F.
They got in with the F&F, Athene even showed the F&F email... I dont know what else to tell you, they were all in the same wave, media JUST now got in...
Anyway dont freak out guys when you dont have a invite, most likley our invites have no gone out yet (aka no blue post)
Well that doesn't make any sense... Why start wave 2 when in 24 hours you will start the closed beta ? Maybe just the email was written like that for media ? Who knows ?
And i still don't believe that these people are F&F lol... million of people watch them.
It is still possible that Blizzard saw how pointless it was to have media/press out of the F&F beta, and allowed them to start playing already, even though it might take another week to start the actual Closed Beta.
Ok, guys, let's do the following, open the beta client, put email@example.com and start spamming passwords with the same amount of digits he uses in the videos. Gogogo!! Whoever finds the password out first has to post here then we split the access time..
