Adam Fletcher, Blizzard's Community Lead for Diablo 2: Resurrected, warns of alleged raffles for alpha keys on Twitter. An organizer of such a competition then banned him from his subreddit.
Anyone who wants to participate in an alpha or beta for a new Blizzard game has not received an invitation key for a long time, but has to log on to the associated one register on the official website for the respective test phase. This opt-in process does not prevent fraudsters from regularly luring Blizzard fans with alleged alpha or beta keys in order to access their account data.
Diablo 2 Resurrected is apparently no exception, because Blizzard's Community Development Lead Adam Fletcher is currently explicitly warning the Diablo community on Twitter against alleged key competitions:
Fletcher mentions one in his Twitter post concrete example of such a competition Resurrected in a subreddit to Diablo 2. The (only) moderator of the subreddit and organizer of the raffle apparently found this not very funny and banned Fletcher's account without further ado. He then asked in an update to his post that he hoped Activision Blizzard would terminate "the contract of this lying employee".
His reasoning: Blizzard has repeatedly distributed Tech-Alpha access to media and streamers in the past and will do that again with Diablo 2 Resurrected. Obviously he wants to raffle these accesses. It remains to be seen whether the subreddit will actually gain access to the Alpha of Diablo 2 Resurrected after interacting with Fletcher. In any case, we will provide the popcorn in advance.
Otherwise, as always, the note applies: Don't fall for fraudsters who promise you keys for Diablo 2 Resurrected. The (currently) only way of access for the upcoming test phase of the action game to get works over that Registration on the official website.
