This sounds a bit fishy. One thing blizzard phone rep confirming something that isn't announced is rare.

The other thing is if it was a blizzcon related email it should have the key attached which would mean he could enter the key into his bnet* account and either d3 will show up or not. I'm rather sure that if some were sent out today instead of tomorrow the second that happened blizzard would have announced it saying the first batch went out today and more will be tomorrow.

Another thing is why would they send you a email stating that you are in based upon blizzcon draw and send another email with the key?

Dunno either yay for you for being #1 on invites or somethin fishy is going on here.
Okay. Check your email message source. it tells you right there if its a scam or not.

(Edit: Except, apparently, in the case of BlizzCon 2010 attendees... Seems we'll be getting keys. It's unfortunate I'm so stoked about this. I can easily see these keys hitting a grand or more.)


What nonsense.


Hey, I'm in full agreement. I'd never sell mine and I'd never pay that for a beta, but SC2 beta invites were selling like hotcakes for $300+ the first day they went out.
So I have a question... Why would they need to send out keys for the blizzcon accounts and not just flag the accounts that bought the tickets? I get that some people bought for friends and so forth but... the other way is to grab the account name from each ticket and throw that into a pile and pull the 1000 out. The problem with this is that are all the tickets correct and DO they all have the bnet account name on them. I know I didn't put my email on my badge for obvious reasons...

If it is a latter doh!
More then 20,000 people apparently attended Blizzcon 2010, 1000 keys were available to win, which is 1 in 20, so assuming this is correct, they probably ran the attendance of people against those that actually had Diablo 3 in their beta profile and arrived at a number probably 10000 people that fit the profile, so 1 in 10 odds, even at 1 in 30 or 1 in 100 odds you have a much better chance of getting selected then the average joe that has 1 in a million odds or greater,.

I would say if the email you received was just a notice with no links of any kind in it and included an actual date of when the client would be available it would be real, however its hard to imagine without blizzard saying Invites have started yall.

I wish i got an email invite me to the beta.

Actually... Considering the attendees were listed at 20,000 (...but let's say 25,000 for giggles)/1,000 invites/1-5 tickets = 1 in 25, 1 in 13, 1 in 8, 1 in 6 or 1 in 5.
Beta isn't out yet so... dur?

How do people not know?
The simplest way is to check the actual link unless you don't really know how technical stuff works.
here is the link :
<a href="https://us.battle.net/login/en">https://us.battle.net/login/en</a>



where did that s come from?


it's not legit i hope you didn't login to anything from that link.


All that s in the https means is secured. It is actually used in the login process. When you see the login page it will change from http://www.battle.net to https://www.battle.net
If any of this was true I would have gotten my beta invite also, and I haven't so its not.
he should post it i dont know why he has not shown it yet. he wont get banned from the beta for showing it.

No one's guaranteed one. If you attended BlizzCon 2010, your chances are better than most, but there's still going to be 19,000 - 24,000 disappointed people.
Right click on the link and "Copy link address," so it will show the true link. Don't just highlight and copy
