Will hardcore characters be more powerful than normal?—Spectrusv
No intent, no. But they’ll definitely have more prestige and flashy things to show off for being so awesome.—Diablo
Layering monster roles is one. Mixing enemies with specific roles together to create more interesting combat.—Diablo
What’s the reasoning behind aiming for chars to be ~60 after completing hell? Want to get rid of xp grind post “completion”?—Drbuttox
It affected player power in un-fun ways. We think there are more fun ways to pull off end-game.—Diablo
The beta test question picks up from a previous tweet. I’ll quote the whole thing, since it’s ever so much more entertaining when read in context and sequence.

Replying. What do you think now!?!? —Diablo
yes you are having a beta because you knew if you didn’t reply it would mean yes so you had to reply with out truly replying.—DrHighlen
My head hurts.—Diablo
As a clever commenter pointed out last time, we should all oppose a Diablo 3 Beta test, since World of Warcraft has beta tests. As all loyal old time Diablo fans know, anything done in the most successful computer RPG in human history is automatically bad, and should therefore be excluded from Diablo III.
