I won't be playing with any characters I plan to invest time in once the release happens. I'll probably try out the Witch Doctor a bit since that looks like the dumbest class, at least I can learn the new mechanics a bit.

Looks like the stress test identified an error with the Login servers. Haha. Blizzard just posted a message on the login screen saying they are working on it.

I am starting to doubt if I will be able to play this evening at all....

Always nice when betas let developers figure out exactly the types of issues they were hoping to figure out!

I don't like how you don't get attribute points. I like to customize my character. I don't like that I can't equip whatever the hell I want - regardless of how stupid it might be (like a bow on a barbarian). I want the options. I also like skill points. Where are those? I didn't get any runes in the beta though. It just seems like there is less customization here.

I finally played through Diablo 1 a couple years ago but couldn't get very far into Diablo 2 due to suspected burnout on the game style, so I'm not sure about this but is the awful Deckard Cain voice acting a sacred cow? Because seriously, that may have been acceptable when Diablo 2 was released, but in 2012 when the company is one of the largest, richest game companies out there releasing "AAA" games, I would expect them to at least have tolerable voice acting and not something that makes me want to play without sound.

It is pretty easy. I finished the whole demo with a barb. I got close to dying once during a miniboss because there were 3-4 of them. The difficulty doesn't bother me because he'll/inferno will be awesome.

Are the maps randomly generated at all?

Btw I love the voice acting. Cain is awesome!

it's not just that it's easy, it's that it's so friggen slow..

It feels more like Diablo 1 than 2..

It just made me want to go play Titan Quest again.

Gonna give it more time and see if it gets better.. will still buy it though as even still they can always fix it.

I finished the beta last night on a Monk. It was fun, but was getting a bit boring due to the default difficulty setting being way too low. I didn't use a single potion until the fight with the skeleton king. Going to have to ramp up the difficulty with the full version.

This new skill system blows

I'm curious to see how it ultimately fleshes out with the Runes and what not. It looks like they essentially wanted to avoid people "breaking" their character or feeling obliged to save up points, which is a valuable goal. Even though it feels a bit more simplified, I have to say that I like that when playing the little bit of this game that I got to that I didn't have to think about my character as much, and could just focus on gameplay. My character still develops, but it's not this huge stresser. I also like how they did that with the button layout -- made it easy to use and something that you don't have to stress about.

We'll see, I guess it ultimately depends on what kind of customizations items and runes ultimately give.
