MMO-Champion - Patch 4.2.2 on Live Realms this week, Diablo 3 Beta ETA, MMO Report, The Daily Blink
Patch 4.2.2 on Live Realms (probably) this Week
The final version of Patch 4.2.2 (Build 14645) hit the Blizzard download servers and it means the patch will most likely go live this week. Last week's build was flagged as release but wasn't deployed to be ready as a live patch, but this build seems to be the right one (unless something terrible happens, as usual, but it never does).

This patch doesn't really have anything interesting for players, it's mostly a bug fixes patch with a way to consolidate most of the Patch 4.2 hotfixes into the game files to display them properly.




With that launch finally behind us, we will finally have a chance to see Patch 4.3 deployed on test realms soon!




When's the Diablo 3 Beta?
People keep asking when the D3 beta is, and it's pretty hard to give an actual date. Fansites have been contacted and asked to give contact info (battle.net accounts) for an access to the beta.

The beta is definitely approaching and we probably won't have to wait much longer before we see something happen! As usual, keep an eye on Diablofans.com for any D3 related update.

While we appreciate the interest in the beta test, we’d like to take this opportunity to caution everyone of potential phishing attempts or scams. Emails from Blizzard Entertainment will NEVER ask you for your password, and if you are selected for participation in the beta test, you won’t need to click any links in any corresponding email that you’d receive from us. When the time comes, players accepted into the beta test will be able to sign in to their account at www.Battle.net and see a Diablo III Beta license as one of their game licenses, as well as the ability to download the beta.

In order to be eligible to participate in the Diablo III beta test, you should set up a Beta Profile on your Battle.net account, by following these instructions: http://us.blizzard.com/support/artic...rticleId=27087

You'll want to stay tuned to the front page blogs of this community site for future announcements regarding the Diablo III beta test.

The first news of the week wouldn't be the same without Casey and the MMO Report.



Patch 4.3, Condensed
The Daily Blink summarized Patch 4.3 pretty well I think ...

    That's a pretty weak minor patch. Not sure if that is good or bad in the face of sweeping class changes that patches like 3.1.2 and 3.3.3 had.

    I'm pretty sure they are making fun of this being the deathwing patch. The guy on fire gets temporarily distracted by a "highly anticipated" pet from the new darkmoon faire.

    There's this thing called Patch 4.3, and it hasn't even been put into patch notes. Do people really have zero ability to see past the most immediate thing presented to them? My god, remind me to stay off the roads when you folks be all drivin' and what not.

    Case of butterfingers you have there.

    Daily Blink didn't even make me chuckle. I guess those who don't care about pets will find it amusing... :|

    I have seen past 4.2.2 and thats why I'm saying there is no need to wait "until christmas". You know only because there will be a patch 4.3 in the future doesn't mean blizzard is not allowed to put some class changes in 4.2.2. Think about it while you are on the road.

    4.2.2 has been lingering for about 3 weeks now, and as far as I know, there are no real important changes at all. If they haven't touched a class in months, why would they suddenly start now? Apart from a few obvious exceptions, PvE dps balance is pretty good.
