it's awesome. especially if you're a fan of diablo 2. here's a quick pro/con list:

+ its beautiful. no seriously, the graphics/atmosphere are gorgeous.
+ hugenormous skill tree (forest?) with the freedom to choose between hundreds and hundreds of passive skills. your class choice determines where you start in the skill tree.
+ active skills aren't limited by class and are not gained by leveling up. instead, they are gained by finding jewels (via loot drops/quest rewards) and socketing them into your equipment. experience gained while the jewel is socketed in your gear will level it up making it grow stronger over time. this means you can customize your build as much as you want and mix in any skill you can think of.
+ support gems. sockets can be linked together and a support gem can be added to give nice skill bonuses and added effects to your attacks.
+ there's no currency, so don't worry about grinding for gold. the 'currency' are orbs with various properties (changing the color of the socket in your gear, increasing quality, adding magical properties, etc.).
+ its 100% free to play and it's rumored they will be adding up to 10 acts to the game.

- i haven't seen any items with cool visual properties. i think to get any cool effects to your armor/weapons you have to pay real money for it. and i don't think it's that cheap.
- servers are really unstable, i've been dropped a couple times and had a few lag spikes. it's all growing pains though, i'm sure after the initial release rush things will smooth out.

i honestly can't really think of any other negative. if you decide to download this tonight let me know and we can group up.

They're against pay2win which I like
Anything you can buy is cosmetic and doesn't affect your in-game ability to destroy things

it just went into open beta. it will likely be months before the full release. however, you can go sign up now for free and download it and begin playing. they wont be doing a character/inventory wipe between open beta and full release so you don't have to worry about all your work and gear going away when the game comes out.

also if you have even a halfway decent computer this will run fine.

My computer at home isn't too decent. For example, yesterday it couldn't find the BOOTMGR for 5-10 minutes. Finally got on though.

What computer specs do you need to run the game? Haven't been able to locate anything on their website.

Also, my name is "WarChipmunk" is you wanna add me or whatever.

What class did you guys choose? Was thinking "Shadow" maybe. Never really got into WoW, most I ever got into a game that had critical hit and stuff was Runescape lol.

"Exact system requirements will be determined closer to release.

At the moment, you will need a Graphics Card with Pixel Shader 3.0 or higher, and a CPU that supports SSE2. At least 2GB of RAM is recommended, and older Integrated Graphics Cards will not run well."

I'm making a witch.

When you can't find bootmgr most likely it is booting from the wrong HDD. I just had this happen to me after a fully system lock and a hard reboot. For some reason it was booting from another SSD instead of my boot disk, so I had to rearrange that in my boot options. Once I did that it worked fine.

Done dl'ing, playing now.

Also I believe the friends list is based on individual character names, not account names. My marauder is 'MagnumJohnson' and my witch alt is 'KhorneFlakes' IIRC. I'm hopping on now for a bit.

edit:
honestly i have no idea, i was able to download it without any issues. i got disconnected from their servers multiple times tonight and it was lagging pretty bad, so things just may be over loaded at the moment. try it again in a couple hours.
