Next week will be the last beta patch Next week will likely be the last major beta patch before the game goes gold. This patch will be very important as it is Blizzards last attempt through the beta to help ease concerns about ongoing issues. Specifically, it will be interesting to see if they make any adjustments to: 1.) Skill / Rune UI - Many people still do not like it, or find it clunky. 2.) Auction House - I personally feel that this should be accessible in game. The UI and menu options for it still feel very clunky and "betaish". 3.) Performance Issues - I am personally still experiencing rubber-banding. I know many on the b.net forums are complaining about lag and various other issues. 4.) Will they change the skills progression yet again? 30 something days before the game drops, do they feel that changes still need to be made in this area? I suppose the list could go on, however I am fairly confidant looking at their patch cycle times that this next patch will be their last major one. I assume the beta servers will go down 2-3 weeks before the game launches as this is usually common practice. The game feels smooth, in its limited capacity, however there is always room for improvement!
