I think 20th, I can't see them doing it on the same weekend as GW1 anniversary.
Played - M59, EQOA, EQ, EQ2, PS, SWG[Favorite], DAoC, UO, RS, MXO, CoH/CoV, TR, FFXI, FoM, WoW, Eve, Rift, SWTOR, TSW. Playing - PS2, AoW, GW2
Supposedly they do one a month so assuming this weekends stress test isnt counted then the 20th.
I'm really hoping for the 20th-22th. Though, I believe it'll take place the 27th-29th, the recent stress test was not very stable based on leaked information and I think they'll need more time to prepare for the BWE..
It's so annoying that all they say is "End of April, no specific date". End of April should mean th 27th?
I'm hoping that it's next weekend because my girlfriend will be on-call at her hospital from Friday to Sunday. So I am taking her out to dinner at Ruth's Chris tonight, and pampering her tomorrow - because I want to be immersed when the influx of players arrive. World v. World will be very interesting.

I hope it's not the weekend of the 29th cuz i'll be busy packing up and moving to the new house
BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.
I hoped the 20th but I voted (and believe) it'll be the 27th, mainly because the 20th is just a week ahead and there's a lot of things they need to fix before the BWE start, like getting sure everyone that pre-purchased from retailers got its key, fixing the accounts page to allow to change the email for those that linked to their ncsoft account, and give the download link with enough time for everyone to get the client (which is a big download).
What can men do against such reckless hate?
I'd like both weekends! Pre-ordered today after seeing how PvP works! Looks like the old DA0C! Really am excited about the game now!
I hink it be the 27th cause tera open beta is on the 20th and i dont think they will wanna overlap it with tera, although i recon GW2 will eb a much better game than tera.

I wondered why everyone speculated on the 20th.. I think this is the root of why and pretty sure its correct.
I could be wrong about this but if I remember correctly, all of the previous beta events happened during the weekend before the last weekend of the month. In other words, if it's not a coincidence, then the BWE will be on the 20th of April.
Do the weekends begin afternoon on Friday, or morning of Saturday?

Speculation for the 20th actually began because somewhere in Europe, a game outlet was selling pre-purchases that stated the first weekend beta was the 20th, probably to sell more copies. Or at least, that was the first I'd heard of it, and from then I saw the 20th date pop up quite often.
I don't see anything wrong with them running the beta on the anniversary, it actually sort of makes sense, unless they have something huge planned for GW1. I haven't checked thoroughly, but it looks like they're just running a pvp tourney? Still, the 20th would be nice, yes.

It does make sense; but they would have to half their resources for both events, a team to handle GW1 and GW2 beta at the same time. I'm sure aNet can do it, but it just leaves one to wonder, The anniversary is meant to bring all players together, but with the GW2 beta happening at the same time; it kinda sounds like a contradiction.
God I hope its the the weekend of the 20th my daughter will be in Florida for springbreak and my WIfe is going out of town so I will have the entire house that weekend for games and internet debauchery......ohh did I say that last thing out loud.

Praying its the 20th. Tired of re-watching these beautiful videos. :-)
"End of april" pretty self explanatory, if you ask me. So I bet on the 27-29th.
Hoping it's the weekend starting on 20th, expecting it to be the 27th.
Waited so long that 7 days +/- don't make all that much of a difference really. Will be happy to see it with me own eyes anyway.
I think it's a bit "wishful thinking" but my guess is: 20th-22nd
Why? To get Data as early as possible and so with that get time to change things/repair things and so forth.

Every month until the release.
which ever weekend, I hope they get the invites out early enough. When I was in Tera betas it took nearly 3 days just to D/L the client.
