EverQuest Next: Beta Sign-Ups Go Up Briefly, Taken Down

MikeBMikeB MMORPG.com Community ManagerQueens, NYPosts: 5,724Administrator Uncommon

Beta sign-ups for the soon-to-be-unveiled EverQuest Next went up briefly this afternoon and were subsequently taken down. This looks to have been an accident, but it appears some gamers were able to squeeze their sign-ups in during the window in which they were still available.

Does this mean we can expect sign-ups to begin soon after the unveiling? We certainly hope so!

    Welcome to the Beta

    Hello bennyb

    Doesn't meant you part of the selected beta testers.  You're in the beta just like the millions that are in the ESO beta but 90% of em have not been selected to play the early beta builds.

    I'm curious about that too. I got the welcome to the beta email, but that's it. Couldn't see anything on my account suggesting it's flagged for it.

    if you go back to the same signup page the "sign up" button is gone and it tells you that you are already signed up for the beta, hence "flagged."

    Same.  Now I'm trying to find a directory on the main site that has info or a download.  =)

    I managed to squeeze a sign up in as well, and got the same cryptic email. I hope SOE will honor this and not make me have to try again later.

    I seriously doubt they would let people in beta from this mistake.  It's basically just a confirmation email letting people know they registered for beta.

    if you did "get into the beta" you should have gotten an email, but check it.  it's not what you think it is:

     

    We would like to thank you for registering for the EverQuest® Rain of Fear™, Shadow of Fear Game Update. Beta testing is important to each product launch, and your help over the next month is greatly appreciated. The beta started on March 20, 2013 and is scheduled to end on April 12, 2013. However, these dates are subject to change.

    If you are selected to participate in the EverQuest® Rain of Fear™, Shadow of Fear Game Update, an acceptance email will be sent to this email address.

    Again, we thank you for your interest in the EverQuest® Rain of Fear™, Shadow of Fear Game Update. We couldn’t do this with your help!

    Mine just said.. Welcome to beta but Everquest Next is at the top of the page.. no other details on the email.

    Just because I'm a gamer doesn't mean I drive a Honda.

    Would be nice if we dont have to wait 2 years for beta to begin after announcement like some other companies do :)

    There were two links, =17 and =18, one was for EQ Rain of Fear, the other was for EQN. So you either got the Rain of Fear message or you got an email with no body text (that obviously wasn't ready yet)

    Welcome to the Beta

    Hello bennyb

    If you were really in, you wouldn't be able to talk about it , you'd be under NDA.

  • ZieglerZiegler nashville, TNPosts: 159Member

    You dont know that Grintch....you're not in the beta so you dont know what the NDA says or doesnt say and not all NDA's swear you to secrecy about your participation in said beta. I have been in more than a few that allow you to admit it, but you're still not allowed to discuss it.

     

    Got the email as well.....there wasnt any NDA at all...it's a welcome email. The NDA wont kick in til they actually let you into the client to test.
