StarCraft II Beta Signups Open
Copy-paste from Slashdot:

StarCraftWire reports that Blizzard has started taking beta sign-ups for StarCraft II. Quoting: 'Interested parties must simply visit their Battle.net profile page, choose to opt-in for the beta, and re-submit their current system specs by way of a small downloadable piece of software.' Blizzard's Chris Sigaty said in an interview, 'As with previous betas for our real-time strategy games, the StarCraft II beta test will be multiplayer only, and players will have access to all three races terrans, protoss, and zerg and all of their units. We'll include a selection of multiplayer maps, but they won't necessarily include all of the maps that will be in the final version of the game. We're making some great progress on the single-player campaign, but we don't plan to do a public beta since we want to keep the story under wraps until the game's out.

SC2 needs to come out so they can work on D3. I want to play D3 before 2015 :haha:

TimTheEnchanter May 7, 2009 01:23 PM

Signed in. I want D3 before the end of the world in 2012 :haha:

Honestly i really hope it's gonna be out in late 2009. I got a good feeling this time!

Shadowmeph May 7, 2009 01:33 PM

I would rather have D3 also but it better not be pay to play, speaking of Diablo's I heard that there is a will be a new reset of the LOD which means I will be playing once again in HArd core The furthest I have ever made it in HArd core is lv 95 then they reset the ladder the last couple of times I played I couldn't get past Lv 83 I would get killed becasue of server lag or on rare ocassions TTpkers but the later doesn't happen that often because my Nephew is a total freak when it comes to D2 he is addicted real bad plays hours a day or night depending on what his work hours are lol he gives me pointers

How are they choosing who's going to get into the beta test?

IQ tests, Army field training, Pain endurance test*.
Then we must agree and sign a paper saying that our soul belongs to Blizzard and any treason will be punished by never being allowed to play D3 and they will give D3 to our friends to make us die of jealousy.

Yep it's pretty rough.:ph34r:

They probably gonna pick to cover the widest range of hardware. So if you happen to have some exotic hardware, maybe you'll get higher chance to get picked =P.

Me, I'm running a Core 2 Duo with 8800GT. I guess many people will have similar specs :P.
