Ah nice, this is where the other announcement threads went to.
Would this be the 'cool' thing you ever so gingerly mentioned on your twitter?

Bittersweet. Bashiok's tweet of "cool things will happen" got my hopes up that we might get a release date before the weekend. Alas... Oh well, this is probably the 2nd best thing. I need a beta key!
good luck

You really expected a release date? I was hoping the "cool" thing was JW's write up explaining the new rune system.

I had a minor panic-attack imagining myself frantically applying to all the different competitions.

Good luck all!

I believe everybody who signed up for the annual pass should get a beta key just for the fact that they already commited themselves for getting the game, not all the beta players are gonna get the game most likely, so they might as well reward those who are already set.
