The Beta server went down earlier today and shortly after, many people have reported that their accounts are flagged for Beta. Looks like the first batch of Opt-in players have now been selected for the Beta!

    At this stage it seems Beta Invitation emails may be delayed so make sure you check your actual Battle.net account by logging in and checking your games list!

    Congrats to everyone who got in today!

    Update: A reminder, Blizzard may email you to say that Diablo 3 Beta has been added to your B.net account, and in some cases they are sending activated codes, but there are a lot of scammers around as well.

    We’d like to remind those looking forward to an invite to the Diablo III beta 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 Battle.net account to see if a Diablo III beta game account was granted.
    And remember, Blizzard will NEVER ask for your password!
