Diablo III Details?

A since-deleted post on 4chan (mirrored here) offers purported details on Diablo III, posted by someone who claims to have been an internal tester at Blizzard before being fired. A post on Lo-Ping puts the /v/ chat in a more easily read format, allowing one to read all the information provided, while skipping most of the seemingly endless accusations that this is all a big troll. It certainly may all be made up, but if it isn't, obviously spoilers abound. Thanks Gamer's Hell.

"As a tester, my job is finding bugs and doing what they call 100% coverage run test. They also called us into meetings and asked us our opinions about a lot of things. I said the game was boring and doomed to be a failure."

This stuck out to me...

Now see, I've been bounced around as QA for years amongst a lot of products, Blizzard's being one...they don't generally do anything of that sort and unless something changed in how their system works, it's highly improbable that what they said is true.

QA at Blizzard is like QA pretty much anywhere in the industry. He's actually describing out-of-house QA (you know, closed/open beta tests which do nothing other than gauge user-feedback).

100% coverage run? What the hell is that? Thats not regression testing, that's not white/black boxing, and if I guess is right, that is nothing more than going "they wanted us to play all of it completely", which is actually not even part of internal QA scheduling at any company I've worked with (again, Blizzard being one of them).

So I'm going to take everything they said with one huge grain of sea salt.
