Posted it in the old thread, but, what the hell, it's appropriate here too.

I expect an invite on my profile by this evening
because I'm assuming it's a mistake that it's not there right now :(
Blizzard.

There is no chance i can get in. The only 2 blizz games i have installed are SCII and i think the trial version for WoW. Yep, i think i'm fucked.

Damn i should buy Diablo 2 and the expansion pack ...

This is the part I hate. 1. Worrying about getting in. 2. Worrying about official release date if I can't get in beta.

Am I the only one who can't login into his bnet account on the site (EU,GER)? When I enter my stuff it says "in process".

Why would someone break up the install file like that.

It's Blizzard's new feature they introduced with World of Warcraft - you can start playing once a certain % of files finish downloading i.e. starting areas, etc. Everything else will download in the background while you play at the beginning.

Yeah it's actually pretty cool. Once you get past the red mark you can actually start playing the game while it background downloads the rest. Load times are insanely long but you actually get a moderately functioning game. Which opposed to the alternative is pretty cool.

It really does ruin the experience. I would never do that to my virgin game of D3.

Oh I see, it's like the DDO thing.

I thought it was just some kind of triple locking at first. :lol

Thanks.

I never got into any Blizzard Beta. I hope I can get into the Diablo 3 one. I'm inbetween games at the moment.

I got into one beta (BC) - which ironically was the one that I didn't buy at launch. I have the CE of vanilla wow, CE of wrath, and CE of cataclysm. Actually I also got into the SC2 beta, but who didn't?

And the only reason I got into the BC beta was because I wrote a kickass guide that won a contest and earned me the key from TenTonHammer :p
