    I really like that achievements unlock visuals for your banner. If they didn't I honestly wouldn't care a rats behind about achievements, but now I'm VERY psyched to go hunting for them.

    I betamaxed when I first got into the beta a couple patches ago, but honestly I haven't been motivated to play at all since then.

    Re: Betamaxxed

    If you notice, different types of achievements are being tested.

    Achievements linked to events.
    Achievements linked to storyline/quest completion.
    Achievements linked to crafting.
    Achievements linked to class based completion.
    Achievements linked to events.
    Achievements linked to completing other achievements.

    And these include or not different rewards.

    They've covered a pretty broad spectrum with as few achievements as they could sensefully do it (1 per class, so 5, not merely 2, for instance...).

    For this reason, I don't think they planned to offer a permanent reward for betamaxxed.

    Re: Betamaxxed

    I think you're right. It would have been awesome for me to have a beta achievement but since the D3 beta is more of a lucky draw than an actual achievement, it would be wrong.

    Re: Betamaxxed

    Eh, even then, some companies reward beta testers. Rift (which I was in) got the Earthshaper title, Swtor something as well I believe. Sure, they're mmo, but heck, D3 could almost be a mmo if there was no player limit, instanceing and respawns.

    Re: Betamaxxed

    Technically, each Diablo "game" or "room" is an instanced event. What the game is missing is the contiguous over-world w/o player limit and with random trash mobs that are rather useless. :whistling:

    Re: Betamaxxed

    It'd be hard to have a reward for it as many people will have achieved Betamaxed in an earlier patch but not the latest. No doubt there would be plenty of whinging from those who didn't get it anything permanent if they failed to gain it again in the latest patch.

    That being said, I'd give a 98% probability to there being no permanent/release achievement tied to the beta achievements anyway. I don't believe this ever happened with SC2 or any WoW beta tests, so I can't imagine why they'd break tradition for D3.

    I always try to Betamax with every patch so I'd love to get some sort of acknowledgement for that (Feat of Strength)... but it's most probably not going to happen. And fair enough.

    I'd be very surprised if that achievement wasn't there. And then another version for HC.

    Re: Betamaxxed

    Hahahaha right there with you, mate!! Though my OCD mind would no doubt require me to do this regardless.

    But, yep... as said here, this is essentially guaranteed, heh.

    Re: Betamaxxed

    Aw, the WD is the class I'm playing FIRST and I doubt I'm playing anything else until he gets to 60. :p

    That said, I'm probably going to get all classes to 60 EVENTUALLY :p.

    Re: Betamaxxed

    Ohh I like the idea of getting the Beta Maxxed titles even if they dont transfer over to the real game it was fun achieving some of them. I was really just lamenting the fact that it took me about 3 days to achieve all of the goals. Hoping they make some harder more difficult ones to achieve really. And now Im done with this Beta patch really, boring just running the SK over and over and NOT finding any bugs....

    I don't want that achievement :p In that case you're pretty much just doing the exact same thing twice.

    Re: Betamaxxed

    Can we get some clarification on this please?
    Just sent a mail to the webmaster of diablo.incgamers.com asking if they were.. so apologies in advance (Mr/Mrs/Miss Webmaster) if you're reading this too.
    But what I'd really like to know is how many people who aren't in the closed beta, but got betamax'd just from the weekend.
    Granted, I did, but I'd really like my 30 hours invested in the beta to be carried through on my battlenet account when D3 goes retail.

    Yours questioningly,

    D
