[Blizzard] Diablo III Beta Test Announcement. (No date set) - Page 3

post #21 of 28
hmmm so i wonder how they are going to pick you for the Beta. Like do you just get a random thing in your email that says "hey welcome to the Beta!" or something like that? I have a blizzard account for SC2 but its a new acccount. I made it when SC2 came out because i dont have my old stuff from when i played WOW so i hope they dont give out Beta based on that :/

All of what you said is 100% correct. I have read the same articles you have.

My post was intended to poke fun at the fact that after all this time, we do not have a date for anything, just time frames. Even after today's BETA ANNOUNCEMENT, still no date. What did they announce exactly? Just made me laugh.

Uh, no one has claimed to have the beta nor has it even started? Dunno what you are talking about.

If you go to Battle.net (the website) there is a section that allows you to opt into the betas for their games. You have to have a Battle.net account obviously.

It isn't known how exactly they select people for the beta. I think they claim it is random selection but I could be wrong about that. With SCII a friend of mine invited me to the beta so if you don't get picked by Blizzard themselves, maybe someone else can invite you at some point.

Edit - Here is a link for more info.

Its somewhat random, but I believe the system specs do play a part in the selection (They make sure to cover a wide range of specs). As for how they notify you, they send you an email. Or at least that is what they sent me when I got into the SC2 and Cata betas.

When i got in to sc2 beta i received a email from them giving me an cd key to put in to my bnet account. however from what i read you will receive notice from battle.net that the beta has been added to your account, probably to avoid people from selling the beta keys on ebay.

Right.
I agree that the "Beta Announcement" was pretty silly. I'm hoping Blizzard reveals the exact date at Gamescom - that would be pretty damn sweet.

They said themselves that they announce everything too early and I think their betas are no exception haha.

There was a little quip on the bottom of the gamescom blizzard site thingy that said nothing is happening with demonic invasions on the 16th . Possible that they will release beta then, or announce adate for it.
