    It's going to feel weird having access ripped away, but it will be kinda nice to have an (enforced) break before the full release.

    Pretty typical for Blizzard. Not surprised. Made a post speculating about this in the Beta forums a few weeks back.

    For you maybe. Some of us have only had access for 3 or 4 days..

    Honestly, one week is more than enough time to feel satisfied with the beta (assuming you have time to play every day ofcourse).

    Re: The End of Beta Approaches!!!! May 1st!

    Considering there were login issues for the first two days I had it, I've only had 2 days of playtime on there, so roughly 10 hours of time (-work and sleep). I've been rushing through each character to see how they play, but I'm not really spending too much time on any given one quite yet. Not to mention, I'm letting my buddies play it too, because Blizzard didn't hook them up. Just saying, there are 275k people just like me who only get to play it for an extremely limited amount of time. Sure some people have had it for months, but some of us aren't even going to have time to play around with all the characters.

    That's also ok too... by then you'll have finished the beta at least once and with 2 weeks to go, you can start fresh and not burnt out for the early zone :p

    Yeah, I'm not complaining, I love that I get at least some time with the beta, it's great.

    Consider it a mixed blessing that you don't. The beta has some crazy performance issues on some machines that should be capable of running it much better. So it might just make you feel depressed for no good reason.

    agreed. Blizzard had said that the beta build was not optimised and filled with FPS issues, so it's not a good indicator for the retail-ver performance anyway...

    Im hoping they rejig the start zone, even if its just to head south to begin the game i know the games randomised but there are pretty basic patterns to where to go. the game still fantastically awesome.

    I'd love to see some more variety in the dungeons. I think they could get a lot out of just allowing most of the dungeon levels to be mirrored. Sure, it's not *really* different, but it would feel different.

    Re: The End of Beta Approaches!!!! May 1st!

    Well, it had to end sometime :p.

    And man, I'm still undecided about so many things....I've still been playing beta a lot just because which class I play first is going to be so significant - I'm going to want to take that class to 60 before making a new one, so I'm still kinda conflicted :p.

    Good point, was thinking that myself too. It would been a little bit like gamble, i'm only worried about my GPU which is Nvidia 9700M. Well my laptop handled Starcraft 2 excellent so i think i'll be fine :whistling:
