  3. #243
    I've got invited to Catalsym Beta, so I believe I won't get Diablo...

    I am a menace to my own destiny.


    just roll a warrior. instead of crying about the imbalance - be the imbalance.

    You need to have opted into the beta and completed the system specifications update on your battle.net account - otherwise it's supposed to be random I think (although I assume system specs do come into it somewhere, at least you'll need the minimum required to play).

    I know more people that either never got one, or get one all the time. I don't know many that only got one, so good luck

    Sure, why did you even opted in beta if you dont want it. Troll elsewhere.

    F & F beta for EU started back on the 8th , 2 weeks ago :

    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/2624786162#6

    So the EU guys have technically had beta for some time now. Now if you're meaning when the closed beta starts for the EU I have a feeling it would be soon

    i wonder if they have special brackets considered when sending out invites. such as people who have played diablo 2, or people who haven't played it. as well as this, i wonder if pc specs come into it? do they go for lower end pcs to make sure that everyone can run it, higher specs to test the max graphics, or a mixture of all specs. or is it really truely random across everyone who meets minimum specs and has opted in?

    i doubt anyone truely knows the correct answer, but it'd be interesting to know.

    they allready said that only pc specs would go into account. doesnt matter which game u player or how often or how much games...

    The first round of beta keys will go to gaming sites and such, basically to drum up as much anticipation as possible!, which really isn't needed because it's Diablo, but thats how they always do these! So expect to see a lot of youtube vids posted in the next couple days!

    Gratz to whomever got in already and those who soon will!! I suspect we will be seeing a good many videos posted here in the coming days as well!

    They generally pic lower end builds when it comes to specs, because they already know how it will run on top end because they are using top end!

    Which is why people that get into beta usually have either crappy pc specs or rather unique pc specs. I for example have two pc's at home with an HD5850...I doubt I have a chance.
    An Apple fanboy called me a retard.
    In the real world that makes me a genius.

    That makes two of us, I never get beta keys!, But i do have a friend who cancelled his WoW account right before Cata and he had received a beta key as I guess a lure to get him to come back?!!, IDK!

    My specs on my desktop certainly aren't "crappy" and I've gotten into the SC2 beta and Cata beta first wave both times. I have an i7 920 OC'd to 3.2ghz, a gtx 275, and 6gb of DDR3.

    I think they try to cover all possible configurations / specs, from crappy "I can barely run it on minimum specs" to scifi configs that could handle 5 Diablo 3 instances at the same time.

    Your chances probably grow if you got a build that's more rare, no matter if it's crappy or awesome. This being said, my old PC never got me into any betas, even if I applied to pretty much anything that was available. Hoping this laptop brings me better results.

    Edit: No genuine reports of EU invites being received so far... I guess the timetable said by the US GM applies to us too. One more hour!
