First European Wave of Diablo III Beta Invites Under Way

Some people on the forum and also via news mail-ins  reported earlier that they have received the Diablo 3 Beta access email. Blizzard have since made this status update which confirms that the European Beta is upon us. As always this will increase the scam and phising attempts, so to be sure check your Account page. Don’t forget to send Elly a PM to update your status to Beta tester if you like.

Brave heroes, the time has come to arise and answer the summons: the Diablo III beta is upon us here in Europe!
The first wave of invitations to the European Diablo III beta test is now being delivered. The client is available in English, with German and French becoming available at a later date. In addition to selecting players from those who have opted in via their accounts, we’ll also be providing keys through beta promotions and giveaways. We welcome those invited to provide feedback on the official forums.

If you have a beta license, you are free to show, share, or talk about any portion of the beta content to which you have access, as this beta test is not confidential.

As always, we’d like to remind those hoping for an invite to be wary of phishing attempts. If you believe you’ve received an invite to the Diablo III beta test, it’s best to refrain from clicking on any links in the email, and instead log in to your account to see if a Diablo III beta game account has indeed been granted. Or, if you were sent a key, you should attempt to add it manually by going to the Add or Upgrade a Game section of the account management page.

For those who have received an invite to the beta test, we thank you for helping us test out our server stability and hardware. For those of you still hoping for an invite, we wish you the best of luck and hope you’ll keep an eye out for some of the beta-key giveaways and promotions we’ll have right here on the European Diablo III community site.

For more information, please see the beta opt-in announcement and FAQ.

  1. Just checked my account: NOTHING


  2. Nothing for me.. Well they’ve said it’s FIRST wave, so how many keys were actually sent?

  3. Cool, so Europeans finally get beta invites. And us Aussies miss out again. Typical. Oh well enjoy the beta!

    • FYI, Blizzard did announce they will have “regional betas” in their article about the 100k invites. Europe so happens to be first up. South East Asia should follow soon after.

      • Ah I read about that too, but I figured it would be too close to release for other regions – and this article doesn’t mention anything about it. But it doesn’t matter! Because I won a beta key! YAY!

  4. Nothing. Somehow I think if there would be 10 million invites and 10 000 001 people opted-in I would be the last one who wouldn’t get invite. Just my usual “luck”. 😀

  5. Nothing, but at least they’re finally sending them! I rather know that i had a chance and not get in, then what it previously was!

  6. I actually won beta access on Monday on But they will only send the list of winners to Blizz on Sunday and afterwards someone in Blizz will activate beta for the winners.

    Damn, this is crazy, can’t wait =) 

  7. Can anyone confirm if an EU client will become available? Want to try the game with sub 500 ping :/

    • I wouldn’t worry about ping, it’s only picking up items and interacting with npc’s and chests etc, the actual fighting is instant. So you can still kill stuff with a nice flow, just a pause on item clicking, I would take that over waiting for an EU client anyday 🙂

  8. A friend’s friend got a key, sadly, as I rushed to my computer, no key. Soon it will be too close to the release and I might as well just wait for the game to release, to get a 100% fresh experience… Sad times.

  9. Looks like they sent like 20 invites for whole europe, because most of people didn’t get it.

  10. Combat is ok at best with my ping. I know a ping of 250-280 is ok but with my ping the game just doesn’t flow well. For instance when my Barb uses Hammer of Ancients I only see the last split second of the hammer :/

  11. Got one, fuck yeah!!! 😀

    Also recieved my book of cain with the mail this morning, best day ever… almost! 🙂

  12. What happens if I’m for Europe and already have a US key? Can I install EU beta version and log in with US key?
    I’m not sure if the co-op games are always empty because of the EU-US timezone difference or not, so I would prefer to play on EU.

  13. got in but cant play because i get 315300 error … and there are hundreds of people with the same problem


  14. No key here neither… C’mon blizz, show EU some love. Afterall, we are the ones who are gonna be ripped off with the dollar to euro conversion as always..

  15. i bet they whiped out a wooping 5 k beta keys – i mean common we are talking about europe here ; you didnt really think that we would get 100 k too ?  whatever i got no key ; and i never expected to get into a beta i actually want to be in…

  16. It kinda pisses me off that there are people around who got 2 keys or a key they barely use… 🙁
    Still no key here.

  17. Well, I got a beta key, but it seems I’m too young… I’m 17 in 2 weeks, how the hell am I too young?!

  18. I know ppl who got one and don’t use it, I’m soo cutting my ties with them if I don’t get one soon. 🙂

  19. YES!!! I finerly got my inv to d3 beta started playing when the time was around 5pm and played untill now 9:20pm when i fealt my tummy was screeeming for food 😀 and ofc the deamonhunter was the first char i started up… the class is awesome. grz everyone that got the inv and happy hack n slaching 😛

  20. no access for me, tried nearly everything , at least my sport bets running like hell 😀

  21. Well I didn’t get anything through the opt in, but managed to snag a key from the Vox games Facebook page today!
    After waiting so long and watching so many beta videos I must say it’s amazing to finally play it for myself!
    I am going to try to not play it excessively as I don’t want to burn out on the early game content before the game is even out…

  22. Grand poteau ! Merci pour prendre le temps décrire quelque chose qui est réellement en valeur la lecture. Trop souvent je trouve linformation inutile et pas quelque chose qui sont réellement appropriées. Merci pour votre dur nfl jerseys
