When DF:UW releases, with no free public beta, only one thing is inevitable - we'll be paying to beta test the game for several months. That, of course, will turn off vast numbers of players who will rightly believe that they shouldn't pay for a de facto beta.
I suspect it'll only be a matter of 2 or 3 months before DF:UW becomes as empty as the original Darkfall.
There's no way that a game as complicated as an MMORPG can be properly done without a beta.
