I got my beta invite yesterday. To Diablo 3. I would have jumped at the chance to look at the artwork in mists, I was even looking forward to it. I figure this weekend would be as good as any to check it out as I have nothing planned so I have some free time.
I guess that means, if I decide to, I can check out Diablo 3 this weekend. There is one problem with that. I know nothing about Diablo. I've never played it. I've never looked into playing it. I've never had any desire to play it. I never even signed up for the opt in for it.
I am thinking this is a way for blizzard to try to make amends for me not being in the mists beta yet. I would have to say that it is at least an attempt even if it is a bad one.
I would not be a good beta tester for Diablo for various reasons and the top one is that I do not play the game. If I know nothing about the game, not even the basics, how exactly can I test it?
I play warcraft, I know it and I know how things are supposed to work. I would be a solid tester for mists because when something is wrong I would know it needs fixing. I would not know that with Diablo.
Wouldn't blizzard be better served giving my invite to someone that might actually be able to help them? Wouldn't blizzard be better served with me being in the mists beta where I could actually help?
I am not sure why they think giving me the Diablo beta is a good way to make up for not being in mists yet but it would not surprise me if there are tens of thousands, if not more, people that should have not gotten a mists beta invite that are looking in the mail and noticing they have a Diablo 3 beta invite in place of the one that should have been there.
I'll probably check it out this weekend. It won't hurt to take a look I guess but I am not sure how I can help with the beta.
I guess I will look around online today a little to see if I can get an idea what the game is about and how it plays. I hate going into anything completely blind and I am not really impressed that blizzard is trying to make amends with giving out beta invite to things I did not even sign up for.
Give someone that plays Diablo my invite and let me get in mists. That would make more sense.
Hey, look at the bright side, at least they gave me some beta and who knows, I might end up liking the game.
