Why where d3 beta keys given out on facebook? Even if it is a contest I dont think I should have to make a Facebook account just for the extra chance to get in considering I have never even used facebook!
Blizzard did a collectors edition unveiling, so why not make it axcessable on the blizzard store so others can pre order this. And by pre ordering only the collectors edition it would grant you axcess to the beta and then just wait for rest of stuff to be mailed to you.
I feel this in turn is a much better way of getting revenue for Blizzard up front, and getting a comitment from the players instead of giving away a beta key to some one who may not even buy the game!
Personally I think that would have been better. Instead I got a pre order confirmation from ebgames dated for next year all I got to do is wait!!! and i still got no chance of getting in on the beta. Would be nice but I'm not counting on it!
I remember way back in the day playing the diablo 1 demo in a computer store while looking for parts for my 486 dx2 80 mhz ! I loved the game and have done every part of it even the unoffical xpac by Activision called hellfire with the monk and the bard!! Followed up by D2 and LOD which I still play (HC ladder us west)
I hate to sound like a die hard diablo fan but I wish there where another way to get in on beta even after opt in cause I have been on that list since this whole thing started, to no avail.
But maybe it is some thing to think about pre order collectors and get in on beta! I wish lol!!!
Any way i just wanted to voice this cause I think these beta keys could have been handed out better! So now that you have gone and read this I dought it will do me any good but always keeping my fingers crossed!
I cant wait to play d3 but untill then I am stuck staring at my order confirmation form ebgames saying shipping is due to start by feb 1 2012!!!
Till next time and thanx
