Possibility of another BW this month?

As most of you know, last month there was no beta event.

Do you think its possible there will be another one to make up for it?

    I personally hope there are no more events, just a release and head start days.  Really want to start playing for real and develop my personal characters into something.

    Personal guess is that there will be another, but not until July.

     

    Just looking through the suggestions board on the official forum there was a lot of stuff that many players were on board with that I imagine ANet will make sure make their way into the game, and they'll want to make sure they're functioning properly "under use" before launching. Things like:

     

    camera distance, /follow, gear preview/dressing room, return to character selection instead of logging out, ranger pet survivability, player-to-player trade, player tracking on the minimap with options, more UI customization, dueling ... along with rebalancing to respawn rates in certain parts of the map (caves, crypts, and such) and tweaking the down state.

     

    There's also still client optimization to mess around with and server load management to shore up on their end.  Working is not the same thing as "acceptable for a major commercial MMO."

    They said the betas would be roughly every month, and so far they actually have been. A "month" is frequently used as a timeframe and not as an indicator to an actual month, specifically to indicate 30 days as, on average, that is how many days make up a month. This most recent BWE was about 38 days from the first BWE, which means they're on the schedule they originally set.

    As for when the next one comes, the only thing they've said on the Reddit is that they will indeed have a third and they are planning for it, but they have not said when it will be.

     I like what this guy said.

     

    WTB more camera distance.  Love what they did with modifier keys.  If Anet keeps listening, we'll keep seeing some good changes.

    All sepends on when they aim to release it.

     

    July would still be possible, but also September/Oktober.  If there is a July release, i guess we might have another BWE in the last weeks of JUni, as this was technically the May BWE
