Could still be a month or more; that's usually how long an alpha lasts.
Battle.net working pretty slow atm
I know its a bit off topic, but this reminded me to check my beta info and i just noticed i got a SC2 beta invite...they should really email a notice of these things :p
Beyond certain well known hardcore Raiders/PvPers, I find it doubtful that Blizzard actually checks who their system gives invites to. They might set a "systems below/above this average" but beyond that...
This will be exciting , hopefully they do the beta soon . lol
my cousin at Blizzard said they'll be keeping a close eye on those people with crap PC's like the ones that can barely play WoW or are somewhat okay, because there is some concern that their updated graphics would cause issues for them, even on low settings. They do not want to end up leaving their followers behind.(no i didn't get into the alpha i want it to be a finished product when i get the game.)
Yay! for me! \\o/My pc is crap, Blizz, pick me! pick me!Actually what would be nice for discussion is why do people even want to do the testing? I get how some don't want to see it before the release so they get the full effect. And on the other hand most just want to be able to say that they saw it first. Myself, well I feel a bit of both sides. I want to be part of the fun when it gets released but I also want to be able to get a head start and know a bit of what is going to happen, plus I really, really can't wait to see what its like. Either way, if I don't get picked or if I do I would be ok with it.
to put it simply if i would give up my beta invite to the person who makes quest helper in a instant it will not only stop me from getting glued to the beta it would also help out a large amount of people and cut down chat like WHERE IS BALALALALA OMG BLIZZ DIS ^&*! Q ITS BUGZORRED /wambulance which is some thing we dont want
Aw, what the hell. Summer is ahead, and ICC is starting to dull.
Anyone else's antivirus freak out when they download the opt-in application?
Everyone who says it's random, you're ALMOST correct.What they do is, they look at all the system specs you put in, and create several categories ranging from the minimum specs they want to support, up to the top-of-the-line machine. Then they decide for themselves how many people they want testing from each of those categories. They're not too worried about the top-of-the-line people; they know it'll run swimmingly on those machines if it runs on any of the others. They're not too worried about the minimum specs, but they want a decent sample size to make sure it'll at least be playable on bottom-of-the-barrel machines.Most likely the bulk of testing will come from middle-of-the-road specs. But once they've got their numbers for how many in each category......then, and only THEN, do they start up the random number generator, to pick people from each category until they've got enough.Actually I'm probably oversimplifying even there--they probably want to also test different geographical areas, to make sure people can have a playable connection from most places in the world. *shrug* My point is, it's not completely random, but the criteria they use other than random numbers are so secret that you might as well just wait and see.
I can't wait no longer! i wil finish the hunt if you know what i mean...xDand if i can ask thats al just click on send? because it opened my opera and there was nothing :D
I got the Starcraft key :) does anyone know if this means that I'll have less chances of getting the cataclysm key? or Diablo 3 when that's available.
i just realized when i set up my opt for cataclsym that i had a beta sc2 lol man i'm dumb i should have checked sooner. So guess i'll have to keep an eye on my battle.net alittle bit more now
