In news that will surely shock you all, there are problems and delays in enabling the new beta patch to Battle.net
Update: 7:30 p.m. PST
Maintenance has been extended for 2 hours, until approximately 11:30 p.m. PST. In the meantime, Beta Patch 10 notes can be viewed here.
Also, as a heads-up, we’re currently experiencing some issues with Breaking News, which means the latest updates regarding the status of the Diablo III test server may not always be visible in the game client. We’ll be providing updates in this thread as they become available, though, so stay tuned!
Update: 11:15 p.m. PST
We’re continuing to work to deploy Beta Patch 10 and anticipate that it could take another hour to complete the necessary tasks. We anticipate that the game will be available again by 12:00 a.m. PST, and appreciate your patience until it is.
So um… “soon.” (I’d give even money they can’t get it working and call it a night.) Props to Lylirra for the frequent updates, at least.

Go to bed. Read about it in the morning.
