Treating your fans well would be giving a beta key to those who have it pre-ordered.

Not for your enjoyment.
The fact they are even giving away any more keys is simply showing how well they treat their fans.

Doesn't change the fact that 8 keys is just a tease to the tons of players that would love to have one. It doesn't matter anyway as the game is close to release.

+1. That would probably be a ton of keys to give out though.

I think that's enough to test the servers.

The most we know for sure that have been given out is the 100k NA invites a while back. I don't recall if they released numbers of keys given to fansites.

Also, no, it's not enough. Especially when most of the players with beta keys played through 1-2 times and never touched it again.

I don't know what is needed for Blizz to test for stability, but I guarantee they haven't tested anywhere near what will be playing on launch day.

Presumably the beta would be on just a few servers, and the full compliment would scale properly with the added load.

Hey guys do you that a ping of ~200 will give me a major disadvantage in a game like this? I am from South Africa and I believe that there will DEFINITELY not be any servers going up near my country. I play in Europe with games like DotA 2, Starcraft 2 (and others that have restricted server locations). Thanks.

200 ping is fine, i played on some European diablo II servers without any problems. If you go much higher you will start to noticed delayed actions though.

Shouldn't be a big deal in PvE although maybe it'll become an issue in the hard and inferno difficulties. PvP won't be out upon release but you might have a hard time with that as well. 200 ping isn't that bad though.

Last night I played a Dota 2 game with 150ish ping and it was driving me nuts. You lose the instant control that you've got over your hero and in a game like Dota it is a big deal.

quoted for truth.

I got a beta key and I played through the first part of Act I (as far as the beta would let you go) with one character. Had fun and enjoyed it but I was simply jonsing for some action rpg time. I really didn't want to ruin the full experience later. So yeah I'm def one of those who have not touched it since after the first two days of having access.
