    38 if I'm not mistaken. Give or take half a day based on location in the world.

    23 left in April, comes out on the 15th of May.

    Maybe one of you blizzard folks @sarukun @neville can bring to their attention that there are around 50 threads on their forums like this and that not a single damn blizzard employee has posted to even acknowledge that they are working on the problem, which is really disgustingly bad customer support.

    I was able to play the beta a while ago. Open it up to update and it fucking hangs at 60% like everybody else there. I have tried everything I have seen, and as far as I can tell it's just trolls posting fake solutions. After uninstalling the client it now hangs at 30% instead of 60%. This had fucking better not happen with the actual game, which I have had preordered since November.

    I looked at the support forum and took literally two seconds to find a tech support agent responding to someone with this exact issue.

    Send an email and include your dxdiag info if you are truly concerned.

    First off Blue posts are tracked so you can find threads that have been responded to by Blizzard. You can also use http://www.diablofans.com/blizz-tracker/ which has a large list of all threads (sans support) with a Blue response. And at this point there are now suggestions to try and fix the issue.

    "Disgustingly bad customer support"? lol internet.

    So what you just did is the equivalent of make a "BLUE COME READ THIS" post. And you did it in G&T which I don't even normally come and post in, so you used the @ to get my attention.

    What is wrong with you?

    Weird beta times. I've always had the issue of stuttering when loading assets for the first time. My brother's slightly inferior comp handled that fine. Now the tables have turned and everytime he sees a new monster or casts a new spell it will freeze and die for a good 10 seconds.

    I can't decide whether to book a holiday on release day, or the day after. I think the day after is a safe bet. Being unable to log in on a day off would destroy me.

    Having run the Diablo III beta into the ground I've been playing some Diablo II. Actually getting really good luck on drops this time, for my level!

    Quick question: does exceptional/elite gear show up as exceptional/elite before you purchase it in the gambling window, or do I need to just buy a shitload of Chain Boots and hope I get lucky twice?

    It's the latter. You don't know the grade of an item before you gamble it. It's just "chain boots".

    Oh please, I'm the biggest Diablo fanboi, but this is the worst argument of all time in the history of MMOs. It being a beta is not evidence of broken things being fixed, nor an excuse something is broken. Unless there is a specific statement somewhere about XYZ will be fixed in release, then something broken in Beta should be assumed to be in the same state at release! 99% of issues you find in a games Beta will carry over to release, because Betas are not actual Betas for game mechanics, they're betas for auction house, authentication, game, and financial servers.

    Since the issue being discussed is a server/connection issue and not a game mechanics issue, by your own rules, the "it's a beta" statement is relevant.

    Also, I think you're being a little uncharitable here. Game mechanics have been revamped left and right since the D3 beta started. Off the top of my head, the rune and skill system was totally reworked, monster damage was roughly doubled for the lower levels (based largely on the public beta feedback), tons of class tweaks. On the whole, I agree with you that this beta (and most others) are primarily about testing server infrastructure, not content. But to ignore the game mechanics changes that have been made is a pretty huge oversight.

    There is no reason to get out of wack regarding download issues. Those will happen especially with MoP beta going on concurrently. I had not problem downloading the beta but I did have to enable peer to peer for it to work. That was kind of strange. This game is not like WoW. Allowing a wealth of bugs to make to live will hurt Blizzard's investment and longevity in this game. But having worked in the software industry some bugs just dont have the priority of others. Testing of the items you mentioned is vital prior to release as that is a huge part of the gameplay that is announced at release. It is a beta. They are updating the client pretty steadily. Time will tell if it goes well.

    Goddamn, the Barbarian looks and sounds so good.

  • mr_michmr_mich Registered User regular
    That barb looks awesome!

    I'm really stoked to see some of those new areas/monsters, but some of them look pretty blah. I know it's tough to tell from one frame's worth of layout/terrain, but I've been lauding D3 at how it feels like I'm in an actual dungeon, and not some arena. A lot of D2, namely in Acts 2/4, suffered from the sprawling expanse that felt like it was only there to throw demons at players in a video game. I see a few of such places in that footage, but I'm hoping/trusting that a majority of the game is as fun/dynamic as the beta.

  • El GuacoEl Guaco Registered User regular
    I find it interesting that the shield has as much armor as 3 other armor pieces put together. Which makes the decision of using one or not a genuine dilemma. Are you willing to give up 30%-50% of your defense so you can dual wield?

    Welp, here comes Patch 16 and another character wipe.

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4363779447#1
    The Diablo III beta is currently undergoing maintenance as we prepare to deploy the next beta patch. We anticipate that downtime will last for about 8 to 9 hours, until approximately 8:00 p.m./9:00 p.m. PDT.

    Please note that Beta Patch 16 will include a character wipe. As with previous character wipes, this wipe will also affect gold, achievements, items, followers, and artisans.

    Thank you for your patience!

    Those are the least interesting random properties ever on those items.

    But did you see the item with +25 fire resist? I can't wait to start experimenting with builds that have high fire resist.

    I think it's interesting to note how many of those items have little to no Strength on them. I'm really curious how much better primary damage stats will be than the alternatives, and at what point you'll want to use a higher level/higher stat item without your primary stat vs. a lower level one that's loaded with your primary stat.

    Pretty sure this stuff is just completely random gear. Not some dude tryin to build a gearset. Dont understand why people are reading so much into it.

    since this thread is all the D3 I can see at work.

    That said, my point still remains completely valid whether or not that's the gear he's using.
