At lot of you tried out, or tried to try out Diablo 3 over the weekend. There were so many of you, that log-in issues, trying to creating or join games, and chat problems were reported. According to Blizzard’s community manager, the beta saw 300,000 concurrent users; however, the total number of users is unknown at this point but the firm said it was “a lot.” Hopefully, those who played are ready to start all over again come May 15, because according to the firm “nothing from beta carries over to retail… characters will be wiped,” and all achievements earned during the beta were “there just to test out the achievement system.” Buck up little barbarian: there’s only four more weeks to go, counting the rest of this week.
