    You should. I'm guessing they might give priority to people who have a station account versus people who just signed up 2 minutes ago.

    I have station cash so maybe that will help my chances, doubtful though.

    SoE confirmed on twitter its their URL.

    Dosn't mean its the actual url for the real beta sign ups ;) the second link makes it look even more fishy ;)

    I think he was referring to how he didn't use his SoE account name on the forums.

    There was an EQ1 beta too recently. It would be funny if it's an EQ1 invite.

    Don't worry, I'll give you all some money to level up.

    I went to the EverQuest Next site first and logged into my station account before clicking the link. When the link bypassed the sign-up and gave me the beta link to click with my name already entered into the site, I figured it was legit.

    Now that email I got needs work.

    I figured they just wanted to say hi...:)

    The screwed up signup is easy to explain. SOE does multiple beta's, so they create one beta signup app that's configurable rather than create a new web app and database every time. This means you configure a new beta each time, with things like signup and confirmation text, start and end dates, etc. 

     

    Someone was configuring this for EQ Next and EQ Next: Landmark (whatever that is). The config isn't tested or even complete. They likely copied a previous beta (Heart of Fear) as starting point. However, someone out there took the URL from a previous beta, updated the betaId URL parameter to 17 and then 18, and presto, there's the EQN and EQN: Landmark beta signups. Available before anyone at SOE intended. 

     

    I work with highly configurable enterprise software for a living. I'm pretty sure this is what happened. 

     

    The confirmation emails are clearly incomplete. The signup text may not have been vetted, so I wouldn't take the mention of it being a "hardcore mmo" as anything official yet. The end date of 12/31/2013 - who knows. I would think that's more like a rough approximation of the end of the beta period rather than the start. They may be expecting beta to end around that time and will allow signups at any point. Then again maybe it's a temporary date the arbitrarily picked.

    Well.... I got a welcome to the Beta email after I signed up, hopefully it means I'm in when it starts.

    Welcome to the Beta! 

    See what happens from here :)

    No signature, I don't have a pen

  • ste2000ste2000 londonPosts: 4,705Member Uncommon

    The link is legit.

    I just registered and received the Email.

    Having said that, I believe that SoE tried to sneak in the Beta registration, but they didn't mean to send the Beta invite email, which looks like an authomated message (hence a mistake).

    In fact the confirmation letter just says "welcome to Beta" no other informations, so I believe that's a mistake.

    I really hope that's not the case, but, instead they go by the age of the account that's signing up, lol...

    My account is about 14,5 years old. :)

    Or it can mean they used the leak as opportunity to test their registration system, and that they are going to reset everything for the real announcement.

    Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2, The Crew, SotA

    Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.
