Great idea by Blizzard, but I fear they're opening their forums to a flamefest of "DON'T DO THIS BLIZZ! THIS SUCKS!!" etc. etc. While good for killing possible bugs, most of the community QQing about everything doesn't have the slightest clue about balance.

They've done this with WoW forever. It's an incredibly smart idea. Blizzard gets free (or even negative cost..? whatever that would be called) beta testing and people get to try out the patches before they're live.

I guess for the highly competitive pro players out there, this is a great opportunity to re-tune their tactics before a new patch is deployed.

Other than that, pass, nothing interesting for me in this.

Yeah, Blizzard gets free QA personnel. Though it is understandable today that the scale and complexity of games today (especially on multiplayer games) that it's impossible to get the majority of these bugs.
