FYI - Minor Battle.net Functionality Testing

General
Post Limit:
We will soon begin limited testing on updates to some Battle.net functionality (mainly communication and login). As a part of this process, you may notice some minor Battle.net-related UI changes while logged in to Diablo III, World of Warcraft, and StarCraft II.

Patch 1.0.6 for Diablo III includes some of the data for this testing but will not impact your play experience. Similar testing-related data will be patched into World of Warcraft and StarCraft II in the future.

Please note that at this stage the testing is limited, but we’ll keep everyone updated and invite you to help us test the changes as soon as we can. We look forward to sharing more information about what’s in store for Battle.net in the future, so stay tuned.​
Is this about the incoming 5.1 patch that includes the new "offline" RealID battle.net mode?

(mainly communication and login)
Vent/TS alike system in the launcher, replacing the old unused voice comm?!!!
That would be awesome :o

"Minor UI changes"

The "mainly communication and login" probably has to do that you will be able to login as offline (Since having to be online at the time of login would kind of defeat the purpose of an offline mode when people can see you logging in and obviously hiding a few seconds later)

yeah, yeah, i know. they already said before that they would add that offline mode, but can only hope that they preparing it for something big like the voice comm revamp :)
Sounds like good stuff. Looking forward to what's being done and not finding out on MMO-Champion but rather the official EU site.

He expressed interest at this topic.

You expressed disapproval of his comment.

I'm sure those aren't the same thing. At all.

Sounds interesting.

Not as much of a waste as yours is in all fairness.

On topic, this does indeed sound interesting. I do hope for more functionality as well, as the chat itself is still pretty primitive in terms of features.

Ever consider reading the notice? Maintenance has the servers closed from 3AM to APPROXIMATELY (for those who care about Galleon) 11AM. You won't get in right now, so try around 10-12 o'clock. Plus, it's a patch, so naturally it'll take longer than regular maintenance.
