Elon Musk To Stress Test X Livestream With Quirky Late-Night 'Diablo' Challenge: 'Please Keep Expectations Low'

Tech billionaire Elon Musk is set to put X’s livestream scaling to the test tonight at 11 PM with a quirky “Diablo” challenge. 

What Happened: Musk, the visionary entrepreneur who reportedly bombarded X employees with constant demands during the initial days of the platform’s acquisition that they became concerned about his forgetfulness, has a new experiment up his sleeve. 

At 11 PM CT Wednesday, the tech mogul plans to test the capabilities of X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

On Wednesday, he announced, “Will test X livestream scaling tonight at ~11 PM CT with some silly stuff.”

Adding a playful touch to the announcement, he stated, “People have asked me to stream myself playing video games, so I will try to speedrun a Tier 99 Nightmare dungeon on Diablo (with no malignant hearts). 

He further said, “By ‘speedrun,’ I mean complete fairly quickly for an amateur. Please keep expectations low.”

For those unfamiliar with the intricacies of Diablo, it’s worth noting that the game’s highest dungeon tier is T100 at level 154. 

These 100 tiers are divided into two groups: Sacred and Ancestral. Sacred Sigils encompass tiers 1-20, and Ancestral is reserved for tiers 21-100. 

Sacred Sigils are meant for use in World Tier 3, while Ancestral Sigils are exclusively for World Tier 4.

Why It’s Important: This isn’t the first time Musk has used X for such tech experiments

Last month, he live-streamed the test drive of Tesla’s Full Self-Driving software on the platform, giving viewers a firsthand look at the cutting-edge technology.

Musk’s vision for X as an “everything app” seems to be evolving rapidly.

Previously, it was reported that there are immediate plans for 4K streams, Musk said that it’s “definitely coming,” but first, they “need to complete several other features.”
