    I believe there was announcment on the forums that it'll be in January, but once forums are up again you may want to check it.

  • they've been clever, taken down the forums. that way, there is no way to get any information for us that aren not in the CB. silly.

    This is all the beta info I could find. Looks like beta testers for Europe were chosen a while ago and all Open & Closed beta testings are over. CTRL F and type 'beta' to speed through the many beta testing updates on this worldofwarcraft.com news archive.image

    UPDATE:

    From worldofwarcraft.com's English community site regarding European beta testing.

    'The Final Beta Test, which is currently scheduled for the end of December / beginning of January..'

    Yeah yeah we are all waiting.
    But you are to blame yourself.
    You think that blizzard is relesing the pre-order pack right before the FB, well blizzard said nothing about this!
    Blizzard said when they !thought! the FB was ready, not a specific date!
    And as you know, they have been pushing WoW around, use your head!
    What is the difference about buying the pack now, next week or last month? You are still buying it!

    PLAY SOMTIHNG ELSE!

    Tips:

    Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
    Half life: 2
    NFSU: 2 (Need for speed underground)
    Ratchet and Clank: 3
    CS: Source
    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
    Killzone
    Sid Miers: Pirates
    Halo: 2
    Riddick: Escape from Butcher bay
    Fifa: 2004
    Eyetoy:2
    Sing Star: Party
    Warcraft: 3


    (I like some of these games but not all, trying to cover all areas. Have any games to add?)

    Yeah deal with it, or else ::::15::

    Think your misunderstanding somthing.

    Pre-Orders of the game should recive there beta key in a week or two's time(christmas here may have to wait for it to get out of the way and evey one to start work again) I duno what comes in the beta package other than the beta key.
    All those already in closed beta get moved into the final beta and the pre-order's of the game also get in with there beta key

    The Game itself wont be sent till the 18th of febuary (the release date currently)

  • FoxlyFoxly Member Posts: 78

    Helping to knock down any concern about the European release date from this thread (since it is about the launch date, which has been answered),anyone who is interested in following this concern with WoW and other MMORPG's should refer to my thread on internationally supportive & unsupportive MMORPG's should check out the thread link below. It offers constructive criticism and also addresses common issues in international game distribution. We give credit to those MMORPG's that deserve it also.Please post only constructive criticisms, contribute something and support/justify your opinions with facts, please. image

    If you want to bring to light international MMORPG issues, please refer to my thread imagehttp://www.mmorpg.com/discussion.cfm/setstart/1/loadthread/29207/loadforum/51/loadclass/35  Any nationality can & should post. Whatever you do, please give constructive criticism and support your opinions with facts. BE SURE TO CHECK THAT YOUR OPINION ISN'T ALREADY EXPRESSED IN ANOTHER POST, IF IT IS AND YOU STILL WANT TO POST USE THE 'QUOTE' OPTION. Thanks!

    the answer is: "soon..."
    or "It's done when it's done"

    Blizzard hasn't announced any date

    Actually, this is from WoW's website, 15 December, Blizzard stated:

    The Final Beta Test, which is currently scheduled for the end of December / beginning of January, will begin simultaneously in English, French and German. The start of the Final Beta Test will be the next time new testers will be welcomed to join the game.

    You can read more about it onthis page.

     

    Beats 'Soon' or 'When it's done it's done'.

    Could be distribution issues or international policy issues between the countries concerned. Blizzard has been awesome in the past with Battlenet in Europe, so I'm giving Blizzard the benefit of the doubt. Just because a bunch of people aren't patient enough to hammer out a decent Beta our final release of WoW could have serious issues. There must be a lot of forseeable problems for now and I'd rather have a decent version of WoW rather than a rushed botched job. It could be they are also adding additional servers while running the Beta process, there must be a great number of key factors involved in launching something so big and so anticipated to Europe. I just hope it is worth it in the end. Besides, this is a Beta testing in 3 languages, a lot of liasing must be done. I'm just grateful we're getting the software at all. After all, it's not like they had to sell it to Europe, just a smart move. After all 1 Euro is worth $1.35 now, right? I'm sure they are giving us a generalized date due to the fact that crap happens when you Beta test an MMORPG and a solid date could get you sued in the States if you don't come through (False Advertising). It certainly wouldn't do for Blizzard to release the software to Europe on a specified date and have all their servers crash because testing wasn't quite finished by the specified date.  image

    I knew about Final Fantasy X, XI, & XII at least a year 1/2 before release and I could wait. Development takes time and beta testing is the most time consuming part of software development.
