Does buying a version of the game get you into full time beta?

Or is the only way into full time beta just luck of the draw?

    No beta with a pre-order.  All luck.

    No, purchasing the game doesn't get you into closed beta.  Although, with the NDA down, i would hope they'll give buyers some beta access.  I mean, we already paid, might as well let us play AND help test.

    No, and there is no full time beta, only weekend beta.

    Everyone who has been in the beta forums saw the different groups. It was also a gamified forum where you got badges for participating or getting votes on your comments. It was hard to overlook. The Curse keys didn't have access to the forums though, only those who applied from the website they said on their site so my guess is the Curse ones were included for the stress test but not yet integrated into their other system.

    I believe they have full-time testers because of the named groups there. Named groups even had their own discussion areas separate from the different groups along with the more public discussion areas.

    Got a key from Curse so didn't know all this was going on.

    I didn't see it until after the fact myself either.

    Read it here. I think it's why people were asking how they make a /bug report in the game - they should have sent this info along with the keys.

    I got a key from Curse's giveaway. How do I access the beta forums?

    Updated 02/04/2014 09:42 PM          Published 02/04/2014 03:30 PM

    The key that beta invitees received through Curse's giveaway does not include access to The Elder Scrolls Online beta forums. Beta testers who need assistance should contact our Customer Support Team using the buttons on the right side of this page. Players can also request help from within the game by typing /help.

    Just because invitees using Curse's giveaway keys don't have access to the forums doesn't mean that we don't value their feedback. To provide feedback on the game experience, beta players should type /feedback in-game. Please also report any bugs encountered during beta testing by typing /bug in-game.

    There are full time testers.
    Isarii is one of those testers I believe and has written a rather lengthy review:

    Do you mean the internal testers?

    Ah yes, I forgot about them. I don't think mere players like us have a chance though. It's internal only, just a handful of people.

    Kind of internal I guess.  I don't think that Isarii or his guild mates work for Beth or Zen.  I've also read that there are other high profile guilds that are helping the devs with the game.  I could be wrong, but I'm sure I've read that somewhere.

    Anyway, I doubt either of us has any chance to become a closed beta tester (full time play).

    It wasn't just internal testers and the guy from the Tamriel Foundry was part of the full-time beta, the Psijic Order, not an internal tester. There has been a full-time beta going on for many months - enough to have let many reach 50 multiple times. 

     

    And no, they ain't recruiting new people for that one this close to launch.
