It is Tuesday and i think they normally send beta invites out on Tuesdays.  Considering there isnt many weekends left with headstart on March 31st i would think they have to have one this weekend or next.  I am not sure if the patcher is updating because i wont have my new computer until Friday so i cant check..  Anybody tried to update the patcher today?

    Statistically there is always a chance.  :)  I hope there is a Beta weekend though!

    My best bet says... In 2 1/2 weeks... And then 2 weeks later the last one...

     

    if i was the developer, i wouldnt want to spoil the masses to much before release

    Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

    I'm betting on the last weekend in Feb and another in mid March.

     

    That gives them a nice window of opportunity between each weekend to fix bugs, tweak performance and generally optimize.

     

    Besides, Wildstar have first dibs on this coming weekend, and I doubt the 2 want to go head-to-head at this point image

    Yeah it's a great time to keep the tension rising. Lots of positive impressions everywhere.

    But maybe they want to keep everyone close to ESO and make sure ESO is all they talk about for the next 6 weeks or so ;-)

    I'd like to think they've have one this weekend to have people 'looking' at/for all the positive points that came out after the NDA lifted.

    More likely it will be next weekend (02/28) in terms of spacing though.

    I didn't realize Wildstar had a weekend stress test happening this coming weekend.

     

    Based on that I now change my prediction about an ESO beta this weekend to 13.7% 19 times out of 20.

    I think the shortest span between betas has been three weeks, so I'm sadly not expecting another one until March...and that will probably be the last...

    I really hope there will be beta this weekend. I'm getting bored at my Job working more than 11 hours a day. I want to have an escapist moment this weekend, and I have to work again 11 hours a day next week.

    Coming off six months of unemployment, I agree with this post...

    I reheated Oblivion. Rolled up 3 characters and built them as close to my 3 (2 mains and an alt) ESO characters as I could. Figured I'd plunk away with that for a few days.

    I've been playing with my Skyrim Archer Assassin a lot. Always loved Archery in Skyrim.

     

    Totally different archery in ESO but that's still what I'll play there as my main most likely... different game, different things to enjoy.

    why waste time on beta while you can play on release?

    Some of us are still on the fence about buying the game so another weekend would be great!
