Not sure about co-op but the pvp will not be at launch. I never did pvp in 2 so I'm not sure how much i care about the pvp. I just keep getting this feeling that I will end up going back to Diablo 2.

We'll see who is laughing when I pick this up at Amazon in July ;)


Maybe so ... just remember though diablo 2 still costs like 30$ in stores how many years later? :D

I'm hyped, I mean the game may have taken forever but lets face it, what will be a great game is a great game.

Co-op will be in it, it is in beta and works great. Though I will be honest I'm one the edge of what interface I like best. Diablo 2 had the server lists you could choose from, but you never really knew at what point in the game that they were at. While this one finds the specific quests you want to start at pretty quickly. hmmmm

People with the WoW annual pass (and maybe those who do the pre-purchase directly from Blizzard) can actually download the client now. All it does is install about 7.6gb and it brings you a teasing screen where it has a giant "INSTALL" button... that you can't use yet :(

But still, it's about 7.6gb less I have to download on launch day.. lol

I think we should get a mod to turn the thread into a Wiki. That way we can update it as eswat hasn't been very active the past two years and this thread was made ins 2008. Then when the game releases we can add in names to friend each other if we want to without too much trouble.

EDIT: Either that or break off Diablo 3 into its own thread.

If you're buying a physical copy you will need to wait until you can put the CD key into battle.net and download/install it from there. There's a chance you could find the full digital copy online already and install it once the physical copy arrives if it requires the key to install (which is may not since you have to tie it to your battle.net account). It's possible it's out already too as people who ordered on battle.net are already able to preload it.

PM a mod, post in the Site Assistance forum or report the post asking it to be wiki'd. The last one is the most drastic and should be cautioned against before the use of the first two.

Probably start from scratch. Not a fan of long scrolling posts, so all the videos can go (wish we could parse them from the embedding code). Just fill with relevant material really. I've no desire to update it personally, though.

Pretty much. Remove all old information, update with relevant information. Spoiler tag any new videos and screenshots added outside of the logo/banner. Also create a section where we can add our names/numbers for friending for when the game launches. I may add stuff down the road, but I don't have the time to really update it thoroughly at the moment.



Also, next class banner is up: http://reveal.diablo...valor/#!/create

Anyone know where I could possibly score a beta key? I saw that @BlizzardCS is giving them away on Twitter, but they're only giving away eight total this week, which seems like a joke considering they have 140,000+ followers (its even more of a joke because they just gave out 550k WOW MoP beta keys). The key that went up today was gone within three seconds.

I've been subscribed to the beta crap on Battle.Net for ages, I've checked all the various forum giveaways, I've even resorted to looking on Ebay, but still cant get a damn key.

Been trying to get into the beta forever though. Just because it comes out in a month doesn't mean I still wouldn't like to be able to try it out now. Thanks for your useful post though...guy.

I just found it extreme that you'd buy a key off eBay for something that goes live in a month. Besides, beta AFAIK is about two hours of content with just the first level or something.

This is true. Been messing around with each of the classes and you roughly reach about level 5-7 before you read the end of the beta.

Not like I'd be out there throwing down crazy money to get a key, but I'd pay $10~ to get into the beta.

?

that's not cheap. where's that expensive ass gamer forum at because you're lost.

The beta is nothing... nothing... the few skills you unlock, and after 3 wipes I said Fuck it.

It was a taste... that's it. The demo ended with the fight of an old baddie... and it was done in less than 2 hours.

I'd easily give you my key if I could... but I think it's registered to blizzard account.

All blizzard invites are received directly on your account now instead of keys being given out. So finding a key is going to be pretty tough and when they do appear, they'll go for a hefty price.

Honestly you're better off not playing the beta based on how short it is. It just makes you want more unless you find some terrible fundamental flaw with it that you abhorrently detest.

Don't spend any amount of money on it. I know how excited you probably are, I was the same way. I finally got a beta key a couple weeks ago and honestly, I wish I didn't because it's making the wait so much worse. I'm thinking of Diablo 3 all the time now. It also sucks that I'm the only one out of my friends to get a key, so I can't play with them yet. The beta is just a taste, and it is awesome, but I'm going crazy now waiting.

Got my Beta invite this morning, downloaded it while I was at my internship this morning, and had a chance to play it during my lunch break before class. Like others have said, I kind of wish I hadn't played it now because I've got Diablo on the brain. Its everything I hoped it would be.

I'm in the same boat but I have it already paid for....


I enjoyed the demo but there is NOTHING new to the game. classes are the "same", nothing really different besides sprite changes and the auction house.

PVP got handicapped. Always on connection is meh since I don't have a laptop.

With Guild Wars 2 beta starting.... this thing ships the 15th... it won't get any time from me.

Blizzard needs to push for something new. Starcraft with a new skin and now Diablo with some new paint isn't new.

I disagree, if they radically changed SC2 or Diablo 3 then there'd be a global uprising of nerds. I love SC2 and Diablo 3, I wouldn't want them any different.
