    Didn't count the time I was idle, but around 30 minutes should be right. Last time it happened to me was for the duration of a LoL game that lasted around 45 minutes.

    When paused, you're considered idle anyway.

    posted a message on Some D3 concerns & questions.
    - Pausing. Can you pause D3? I read you cant and the closest thing to it is finding somewhere safe (town I presume) and... just standing there, which leads me to my next point.

    Yes. When playing alone, pressing "escape" gets you to the options and pauses the game for you. Going to town is pretty good too, since you get Town Portal quite early too.

    - Autokick. Will you get kicked from inactivity?

    Yes you are. Pretty much like in WoW, or even in Diablo II. When you stand idle too much time you get kicked. The quest progress is saved, though, so you can resume from the closest checkpoint when you get back.

    - Saving. Can you save at any point, or do you need to find a checkpoint?

    Character data is saved whenever there's a change, so it's like... all the time. "Save and Exit" doesn't even exist anymore, it's just "Exit". Save happens all the time.


    - Checkpoint Availability. I also read that sometimes checkpoints can be VERY far between... like 2 hours in some cases. More time than I usually even spend playing on a week night.

    In the beta they're pretty close to one another. Consider that the beta is about 3 hours if you explore every corner and kill every barrel (in addition to the monsters etc) and there's lots of checkpoints in it. I'd say there's a checkpoint every 10-15 minutes, but I could be a little off. Certainly not over 20 minutes, though.

    posted a message on How about sharing the beta now that everyone has the client?
    Sharing battle.net account info is against the Terms of Use that you have to press "Agree" to install the games, which very much makes it illegal. In addition to this (which is reason enough), the DiabloFans team will not be responsible for a possible account theft that could be the result of such "sharing". Because WoW and StarCraft II games (even Diablo II/StarCraft 1 licences may be attached) cost money and time and losing your account for being generous can be frustrating.

    With all that said... good luck getting a beta key, but the topic won't be discussed in our forums.

    Thread Locked.

    I think it's going to be 20 seconds outside the town. Instantly in town, very much like WoW. It works quite well there too.

    posted a message on Cheating with multiple accounts in d3
    1. the listings are anonymous. So if there's multiple at around the same price, you may bid on the wrong one and pay for something you don't need.
    2. People don't know which limit others have set for a certain item, which may also make them win the auction and pay the deposit fees without actually having profit.

    I don't think that's going to be an issue tbh.

    We expected a beta announcement August 1st
    Blizzard: Nothing new to announce
    We were disappointed.

    We expected a beta announcement August 3rd.
    Blizzard: Nothing new to announce
    We were disappointed.

    Now at Gamescom, Blizzard anticipates we expect a beta announcement.
    We actually do expect it.
    Blizzard doesn't want us disappointed again, so they say they won't have anything new to avoid it.

    I don't think it can get any clearer.
