I think I signed up for it but I don't remember.

How do the characters look?  As fugly  as when they first announced the reboot?

Either way congrats.  Very cool that you are able to check it out.

I didn't really pay attention to the character looks until you mentioned it, and yes, they are pretty darned fugly in the character selection screen. They look fine in game, though, since they rarely face you and since you are so zoomed out.  ;D

As expected, I just got absolutely destroyed by Duriel. Yikes.

I have a vague memory of Duriel stun locking.  More importantly did you search all the ruins to to find KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?

I had a love/hate relationship with KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

You also have to tell me when you pop an Evil Urn.  Love those things.  King Scepter I think is still mad at me about opening one of those.  ;D

Normal Duriel and Normal Diablo were really tough cookies for low level characters!

I watched some videos and streams, and it looked really cool. One of the areas that looked impressive was the maggot lair.
