Awww no!

It's Friday evening for me here in Australia, so my chances of getting some weekend beta action are limited to tomorrow now, and even if they fix it then I'll only have a day left.

I think there is downloader (which is tied to IP) for downloading installer.
Installer itself is not bound to IP and worked just fine for my mate before he got the key.

If it is legitimate to download it is a question of your country laws.

When I try to log in to b.net atm I get 'service unavailable.' Maybe they took it down to patch a fix?

Well, here's hoping hehe.

I'm hoping so, even though I don't have a key yet

We don't even know if they're actually working on it or not.

At 4 AM? I would think it's a pretty safe bet that right now, they're not working on it

Well the question is, though Blizzard works around times in PST, do they wake up in PDT?

They have a EU.HQ in Paris as well, so saying America is asleep is no valid excuse

Checked over at curse and it seems they are having the same problems with their newly released CD keys. Hope Blizzard figures it out today, would love to do some weekend testing =)

There may be no legitimate way to get the beta client but I can confirm that if you find a copy of the installer it works on Windows Vista just fine.

Not to sure about all the IP stuff but I currently have the client installed and fully updated. Just waiting for keys to work. Only problem I had was the launcher was getting write permission errors. So I just bypassed the launcher.

And i'm sure blizzard has people working all sorts of hours on the beta stuff. This sort of work is not your typical 9-5 job. I have a friend who is working on a silly online Facebook app for a big company and he is working from 9 am till usually 9 pm Monday - Friday as well as a weekend here and there so I can only imagine blizzard doing the same as well.

I think it is a Windows "feature" to report all folders to be write protected and you can't change it (on the folder itself and subfolders, file permissions get updated fine) and for some reason launcher wants to check it.

It woulda been nice if Blizzard with upgrading to the new bnet layout did a spot check on the keys to make sure they work.

Well yea but getting more people into the beta asap is hardly their main priority, I think. This is just one of those unfortunate oversights that can happen with these things.
