Can beta testers invite their cousins over to play? or would that be considered breaking the rules?


dumbest question in the world.....
Put a sign outside your house, "Diablo 3 Beta in HERE" and charge them $20 for half an hour to play.
Maybe she can post a Craigslist add..."$30 per run though of Diablo 3 beta. Must play on my home machine. Hot pockets and cola to be provided for an additional $5 fee"

LOL -> http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/vgm/2609880092.html

In an apartment complex...I'll probably need to get my gun out to make em get off the computer when their wallets run dry.
They take your fingerprints when you play on your keyboard, then analyze them and compare them when you enter the game again. If they don't match you will get banned...


Or not :P
Blizzard takes your blood sample every time you log into a video game they created. Don't risk it, bro.
It's against the rules to share your battle.net account information, but that rule is there to protect yourself against hacking more than anything. If you log in the account yourself and stick around to make sure your friend doesn't screw up your account, you're golden!

protects them from having to fix whatever the hackers do to your account. thats THE reason the rule exists in the first place, it takes a lot of time and resources from them to handle all the hacked accounts so they create the rule to try to keep the number of hacked accounts down.
Cousins aren't allowed unless your from Kansas.
umm... do i look like i have beta access???

why the hell are you guys reporting me? jesus christ.. get a life guys.

the reason i made this thread is because i was watching the diablounderground stream on d3stash.com/streams ... the guy said he was letting his cousin play, i told him he was breaking the rules... then the next day i see he has banned me from his chat, which kind of pissed me off because i knew that i was right and posted this thread just to verify that.
The gaming police will show up at your house and arrest you bro. I wouldn't chance it.

Sometimes in life you gotta pick your battles, being right isn't the end all cure all you think it is. People can make laws/rules all they want, if they can't enforce them its pointless.

As a matter of fact you could take screen shots, video, even a web cam of this guy letting his cousin play, submit it to Blizzard and they would do absolutley nothing.
LOL at the people reporting. He didn't say he was doing it, just asking if it was okay. Blizzard won't do anything to him based on asking if it's okay.

youre taking this a little too seriously.. at the time i didnt even care that he was letting someone else play... i was just giving him a little !@#$ by saying "youre breaking the rules" .. which is why i was annoyed to see i was banned from the chat because that was about the only thing i said, not like i was wrong to begin with.
