Blizzard has added a Diablo 3 Beta Forum and a Beta Feedback Forum to their roster on Battle.net. There’s nothing in them yet but a “Welcome” post, and Bashiok says it’ll stay that way at least until tomorrow.
In other “nothing to see here” news, Bashiok said that they are not yet sending out Beta invites, and that they’ll let us know when they are.
The invites in the news last week weren’t actually invites; they were emails from Blizzard that invited media members to submit a Battle.net account they wished to be included on the list for Diablo III Beta access.
That said, I don’t suspect it will stop you guys from having much EXCITE!!!1!
Update: One point to consider. Monday is Labor Day, a national holiday in the US. Many people have the day off, and this three-day holiday weekend is a traditional time for road trips to the beach, picnics in the park, BBQs, etc. So…
- Blizzard will start the beta Friday, so people can play over the weekend and they (Bliz) can mostly vacation and play some also?
- Bliz is rushing to get everything ready for the beta (early next week?) so they can relax over this holiday weekend and return Tuesday and kick things into high gear? Related to this article
