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 Battle.net 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 Battle.net.

Finally I will be able to give it a try before receiving the Collector's Edition.

Everyone is getting Error 12 because it's too early, right?

With 1.2mb/s it would have taken you about an hour and not 20 minutes

;p

How dare you bring math into an exaggerated discussion...

Hehe, yeah.. nevermind ... it's the IT dude in me knowing nonsense like that and noticing it at random.

With these bad graphics It's no wonders that the download ain't so big

I know...it was a matter of 'perspective' in terms of their P2P client's reporting. That said, the point was that the download wasn't as big as people may think.

Ive tried the beta (on a friend's account), its more of the same. If you Loved D2 you will probably love this iteration as well. Myself Im kind of dissapointed they took Satanic references out of the game and have distanced Sanctuary's mythology from the classical judeo/christian belief. Other than that its the same old shit.

I will download to test how the game works with my new monitor. These kind of games suck when the run in the low FPS range...

Downloading now. Want to see what it's like and whether I should even think about buying it later.

Not going to play myself. Probably a pretty sizeable download, and it'd only be for this weekend, after all.

I'm saving myself for May 15th

Sizable being only ~4GB...took me around 20 minutes to complete with the downloader hovering at 1.2Mb/s
