Diablo III Open Beta Weekend

Following indications yesterday that more accounts were being granted access to the Diablo III beta test, the Diablo III Website announces the beta will indeed be opened this weekend to anyone with a account for stress testing. The open portion of the beta will begin at 3:00 pm EDT today and will run through Monday at 1:00 pm EDT. The accompanying FAQ explains how this will operate, and notes that while Korean players cannot participate, they will be holding a separate invitation-only event in Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. The invitation only closed beta will continue as planned until May 1st. To get a head start, you can download the client now from

As with, every single thing in life... Your 'mileage may vary'... Don't need to be snarky about again disagreeing with other people's also-nearly-useless estimates...

Eh I feel pretty comfortable with my estimate being the average for most people based on both here and the forums, you're free to disagree and if your mileage varies then so be it sir I was being (preemptively) snarky with the 1-2 posters who come into every Blizzard topic to defend their honor and so on as they seem to think people saying it's short is somehow negative. Far from it, it's fun and that's why people lament its length

I'll give it a go just to chuckle at 10 year old game mechanics and 6 year old graphics.

The game mechanics are solid, old or otherwise. The graphics are pretty much what you would expect from a modern Diablo game, I'm not sure what else you were looking for man. There are plenty of other things to criticize, your choices seem odd.

Eh I think we flogged the real money AH and always on DRM to death already. I'm more interested in seeing if it's any fun or still the same ol overated click click click click fest that most Blizzard titles are.
