So Closed Beta is Over...Now Open Beta?

StellusStellus Phoenix, AZPosts: 261Member

So will there be any "Open" beta events for the pre-order people in the month leading up to the launch, or is it just straight to character selection and 2 day head start?

Thanks in advance.

    as far as I know no events just 1.5 patch to working out bugs and such...I think it would be cool if they give the beta testers some kind of speical fluff item or something for being part of it

    Since pre-order was the primary way into Beta, the perk is the box sets preorder rewards.  Rings, Black cloud armor, Wings etc...

    The game disk has gone golden,  In other words it's done and ready to stamp out the disk and ship them out to the retail stores.

     

    On topic:  yes CB is done and OB date will be soon.

    I'm more than sure a patch on release day sorting any further tranlation errors out if CB was anything to go on there was a lot of weird text at times and couple that with the massive amount of content added in 1.5.

     

    But bu wise yeah as polished as a big shiny polished thing.

    OB will be announced next week and yes it will use 1.5.

    They should have at least a closed beta test for patch 1.5 before the actual release.

     yeah 1.5 is nothing short but HUGE! So, I am really happy they are making it easier for head starters. I also think v1.5 will be available on the disk also. I don't know this yet. I am still waiting as all of you are also.

    Considering it's approx. 1 month until Release, they're waiting until next week to announce the date, pre-selection is probably no more than 5 days before Official, and they need prep time to optimize server/network performance experienced by users in CB/OB, it will probably be either a 1 week, or 2 week at most. I'm putting my money on 1 week. but hey, 7 days of non-stop play > 3 days like in Closed Beta.
