Blizzard geeft 100.000 mensen de kans om Diablo II te gaan spelen op Battle.net. Dit wordt gedaan om te kijken of de servers zijn voorbereid op de enorme belasting die wordt verwacht na de release van het spel. De gelukkige krijgen enkele dagen na het inschrijven een link waar het 100 Mb grote bestand te vinden is.The beta signup is scheduled for a seven-day period exclusively on GameSpot beginning on Monday, May 1 at 10:00 a.m. PT and ending Sunday, May 7 at 9:00 p.m PT. Applications from around the world will be accepted. Applications are not being taken on a "first-come first-serve basis." You have the same chance of getting into the Stress Test no matter when you decide to sign up during the signup period. During the application process, you will be asked for your shipping address and information on your computer system, such as processor speed and RAM. Please note that only one entry per person is permitted. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Following the registration period, Blizzard will select up to 100,000 testers from those people that sign up during the signup period. Selected testers will be notified via email within a few days of the sign-up period ending. Selected testers will receive an access code and a ZDNet download location via an additional email when testing begins. These access code emails will be sent over a period of days so as to stagger the number of users participating in the test over Battle.net. Dus vergeet morgen niet even hier langs te surfen.
