Diablo open beta updating setup files dating violence among teens
This morning my mailbox opened up with an email inviting me to the Diablo 3 Beta.
After checking the headers to make sure it wasn’t another battlenet phishing scam I noticed that the Received headers really came from blizzard.com, and they even signed the mail with a domainkey.
All participants can take screen shots, capture video, and/or publicly disclose information about their beta test experience.
Of course this wouldn’t be as much fun if we didn’t try to run it in wine first.
In fact, I went to the shop and when I came back it was still at that same point so I killed it and restarted it.
A cute crash dialog greeted me asking me to describe what I was doing to make it die.
Combat is smooth, although perhaps a bit too easy (to attract the casual player I suppose).
As usual with Diablo items are dropped left and right but so far we haven’t seen any items that needed identification.
Blue (magical) items are identified from the start. After helping out the blacksmith you are able to (for a fee) craft blue items.
If only they let me disable p2p or change the port… Looking through the Agent logs I repeatedly saw stuff appearing like: Funny. Hopefully Blizzard works on this part before they release it.
However, after mucking around with it for another hour and eventually even setting up the 6881 port forward there was still no improvement. But I guess they Wine people will try to make it work even if Blizzard doesn’t.
Also they didn’t include some link but simply told me to go to battle net and get the goods there.
