How'd you apply to get in? I want to but haven't found anything, and it'd be sweet to be part of it since I'm a huge Diablo fan.

If you just did a google search, you would find that blizzard announced that the public beta would be released by the end of the 3rd quarter of this year, which ends on the 30th of this month.

I would join the beta thing, but they say it might damage my computer, no bueno

- Give it a rest. Do you really think that this thread is of a serious nature? 8Fingers is reeling you in. He didn't even have to put any ....ing bait on the hook. - CIAM in the 5 Bands you can't stand thread - saying this to toolsound
- It would just be like "BWOMP BWOMP BWOMP" vs the "VRuuuuOOOOmmmmMMRRRROooomRRR" of the engine. - A subwoofer vs. engine sound, by ESP Griffyn
- New used car fund: 0$, I bought one

Care to elaborate, or provide a link explaining what you mean?

Probably the disclaimer, ie Blizzard is not responsible for any damage this software may cause, etc etc.

I wouldn't worry about it dude, iTunes used to have a part in their disclaimer that said their software wasn't to be used in any sort of chemical/nuclear weapon development or some ....

It's in the 1 million page long binding contract that they make you agree to when you install the computer system check thing.

(you gonna buy me a new laptop if mine explodes JJ? :P)

Been waiting on Diablo III for a while, read a lot of hear-say so let me know what its really like!

"There are so many things in the guitar. You don't need a lot of pedals, sorry.
To put stuff in between the actual amplifier and the guitar, in my book,
takes away the essence, the actual sound of your fingers and what your doing."

My friend got into the closed beta due to a connection, but I missed my one opportunity to invade his house and play it.

.... that, I wanted to get in the beta so much.

I never get into any betas, all I can do is wait for the release of it and play.

But, I know I am going to be a no lifer if I do that.

To be honest, I'd rather play guitar instead.

For closed betas you basically need a connection or a lot of credentials. Most companies don't give out random invites for closed betas.

Yeah, but this was the closed beta. Still pretty buggy apparently, but that is the purpose of beta.

Most people are going even Barb or Wizard.

I wish there was still the Paladin in game.

Diablo II's expansion came out in 1 year since the game got released, with D3 I am sure it will take around 3-4 years at least.
