Last week Blizzard replied to questions about the goal of Greater Rifts and how they are balanced.

Blue on Game Length, DPS Display, Beta Waves, and NicknamesPosted 21 Mar 2012 by
Lots of Blue forum posts lately, covering all types of issues. Mostly stuff we’ve heard a million times before, but a few had semi-new-ish stuff, and they’re quoted here.
A fan asked how long Diablo III would take to complete, and received the most shamelessly-evasive answer I’ve seen this year, courtesy of CM Kaivax.
And in the higher difficulties, those variables can expand dramatically.
Elsewhere, Bashiok informs us of
an upcoming addition to the character window.
Update: Bashiok edited his post after I quoted it, removing this mention. He apparently thought the poster was asking about min-max dmg display on weapons, not in the Char window. Apparently there are no plans to add it there.
It would also be immensely useful to see the min and max damage per “skill” on your char. but i will settle for getting that added post-release long as we get our base min-max damage added to the char screen.
Your wish has been granted!
Click through for one more reply from Bashiok, and some discussion of Blizzard employee nicknames.
Not to be defeated at his own game, Bashiok shows he too can answer a question while providing no actual information, when asked about upcoming waves of Diablo 3 beta invites.
If you recall a tweet from some weeks ago, Bashiok reveled in the fact that Chinese fans call him “Uncle B.” I happened to be speaking to a Chinese friend affiliated with Diablo3.cc a few days after that, and asked him if it was true. He said yes, that they do call Bashiok “Uncle B” sometimes, but that a much more popular nickname for him from Chinese Diablo players was “Tai Chi B,” since he never moved in a straight line or answered any question directly.
Considering how awesome that nickname is… why don’t we have cool nicknames for Bashiok? Or Jay Wilson? Or the other devs? I mean besides my half-hearted effort of “LeBo” for Leonard Boyarsky? Would thinking up and popularizing such nicks be too weird and fanboy, like we’re sports fans?
