Will character progress from Beta carry over into Final release, or will anything at all carry over into Final?

    No. All be wiped, based on the streams info.

    Story I've been hearing is Alpha characters will be retained for a test server.

    Beta too? oh, i didnt know that  :)

    Alpha i am 100% sure they transfer your characters to a test server for future builds.
    Beta ? i have not heared about those characters being moved, but it could be so !
    I just never heared of it yet !

    True but it's 100% certain beta servers will be wiped, so nothing from them will be carrying over.

    Anyway to the OP question, any progress in alpha and beta will not transfer to release version, so in release version is start over again for those who play alpha / beta.

    I am yet see a major MMO beta carry over to launch, it would make no sense.

    Live launch servers should always start with a clean slate.

    I really don't know why people keep asking this question.  No MMO, especially a sandparky one like this would allow beta carry over.  It would be totally unfair.

    Alpha servers are supposedly to be rolled over as PTR servers after release.  The intention is to not wipe the Alpha server at all yet they specifically warn against certainty of such.

    It's been rumored that the beta servers will be wiped after each event and it's possible they will have an early access at some point.

    Only thing that will be carried over to release is progress made by beta or alpha purchase levels that gets the 4 day patron head start. So basically if you have the $50 and want to be able to start gaining money and guilda for a house and farm plot in a sweet place, it would be a good idea to pay and play to learn the ropes before launch comes.

    That is my plan. Basically get a feel for all the mechanics in the game, maybe get with a guild or some RL friends or both to gather and quest together. I have seen good advantages to this.

    My money is on open beta yes, Alpha/closed absolutely not. Test server notion is possible though.

    +4 days of headstart comes with a founderspack, unless that is given at open beta! Why would they not wipe with a major advantage like that? Think of the potential cashcow the founder packs can be in Open Beta.

     

    also all the people who say alpha servers will stay around:

    euhm, and seeing how often Trion takes something back they have said earlier...... I do not believe the alpha server will be copied to a PTR.

    Open beta won't carry over at release and i'm very happy about it. Look at AA RU.. 3 months and they are still in a so called beta. Open betas makes publishers lazy.

    No it didn't. I was in both closed and open betas from summer 2006. Everything was wiped before the official launch in 2007.

    I'm pretty certain I've seen an official post stating characters will persist between beta events. I can't remember where I saw it though. Could have been the official AA forums or on Reddit.

    Wrong Reaper, Lotro allowed you to level as many toons to level 15 as you wanted and these characters transferred over into release from Open Beta.

    Thats what i think too, but getting into Alpha, im setting up myself to replay the game 3 times at least.... Twice is bearable, but 3 times... meh

    This is just too much. My overall timeframe to play this game before i sell off the account is 3 months. But playing Beta for 3 months and then having it wiped is just ridiculous . 

     

    I was planning to join ALpha mainly for perks, but im not willing to spend 3 or more months of gameplay wiped. I guess ill only sign up for Beta with $50, closer to release.

    While in Korea the OBT lasted for just 2 weeks...

     

    Anyways, not a single MMO let you carry characters over from alpha or CBT before, i don't understand why people keep asking this question over and over each day.

    I thought I was the only one on the planet that knew this.  So many have asked the question yet no MMORPG has ever carried beta character progress to release that I know of.
