So that when launch day comes around you're not bitching about how you can't login because the servers are down or too busy. It gives them an idea of what to expect on launch and the issues that could arise with the amount of people hammering their servers. I'd prefer them to iron that stuff out now than have this happen on launch

They're stress testing the servers, just as they said in the forums. They've found a ton of server side issues, and that is why the game was hard to get into at times. That's why they call it a beta.

Plus, you think they want to let the whole cat out of the bag before the game is released? There is a reason there's a level cap and adventure limit.

I don't know why some of you are complaining that it's short at 1-2 hours. Most demos are usually an hour MAX. Here you get to try each character for 1-2 hours, so make that 5-12 hours of gameplay. The mechanics are good. It's whether or not the servers can handle the amount of players.

So far I like what I see of the game. I was not expecting too much in order for the game to not be a let down. I feel it will grow on me and is a good follow up of the franchise... I played D2 so much that I can't even look at the game anymore. I sunk hundreds of hours of not thousouds, I don't think that will happen with D3 but it will keep me busy for a while.

No, its probably a good thing this weekend and makes sense. What doesnt make sense is only testing the servers for the entire duration of the beta (the not this weekend beta)
