From the update:

Also today, we said on the livestream with Mark and Andrew, that on Monday, February 12th, we are going to announce the date for the start of Beta 1. As we’ve mentioned in previous updates, we want a date we are confident in that also delivers a great experience for our Backers, who simply deserve as much for their enthusiasm and patience. Earlier today, we came to an agreement on that date after several weeks of hard work but Mark wanted us to take the weekend to think about it just so we can be as confident as possible with that date. Pay attention to your email for further details!

    Well for those hitting beta, let me know how it goes, been having my eye on this game, but, I don't play games till they are live, just the way I roll. 

    But I am Looking forward to seeing some in-game footage and maybe a Hive Review. LOL.

    I just hope this game has more depth than just a big overblown version of old DAOC frontiers, which is how it looks right now.  DAOC was fun for more than just the frontier pvp.  CU needs to be a well rounded mmo along with that, or it will become stale quickly.

    I hate to say it, but, I get the vibe that is going to be more a Realms vs Realms game. while make no mistake, it will have many MMO features like building/crafting, I would bet at the core of the game, the focus is about Realms War, and everything else, is kinda orbiting that main focus.

    Whatever they add to the game in the future I for one hope that it's things that supplement the RvR not detract from it as an alternative like DAoC and later on Warhammer did when they tried to WOWify themselves. PvE along the lines of Darkness Falls would be cool, no PVP instanced dungeons and raids or PVP scenarios with scoreboards wouldn't.

    Beta 1...hmm

    Rvr is such a puny small idea to hold a game back on.it is really nothing more than flag a player for pvp under some kind of heading or instance.
    Why hold a game back to those lower standards,i doubt Mark would,he likely has better ideas but needs to see cash flow first before diving into depth of game design.
    the mention of Warhammer brings back real bad memories.The only positive i took from that game was the sound effects were awesome.Leading up to release and those dev videos,i saw a VERY immature team,that told me the game had no chance.Then when got close to release,there was word the crafting was going to be extremely streamlined to save time or completely removed,again told me this game is a fail.

    I look for all those small details that giveaway a games potential.Imo this game has a boatload of work to do to get it to be popular and better than a simple rvr pvp game.I know some will scoff "we don't want it to be popular ,so that it ends up like Wow"well i am not saying that.I am thinking more popular among those fans of RPG's and not just a pvp landscape,gives it potential to grow with more revenue,otherwise you'll end up with a very shallow game that likely has most bored within a month or 2.

    The difference between most pvp games and rpg's is people login to get some rank or status,rpg gamer's play to have fun gaming and couldn't care less about "who wins".

    I think perhaps a question that should be raised to Mark himself,is he trying to build a rpg or a simple rvr pvp game?You cannot have both,RFA perhaps the first to try it failed for many reasons and it was very popular for a year or two.Warhammer was popular for a couple months,this is the end result of games being too small in design scope,no longevity.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    You mean the wait for the announcement about how long our wait will be . It’s like finally getting an estimated hold time when you call the cable company.

    Part disappointed as it’s a long way off but the realist side of me is happy and more confident it will have progress to show.
