Hello I have a question about the beta testong of TOR. Has Bioware relased any invites for testers? The reason I ask is because I have been reguistered for over year and yet to hear anythign that remotly hints at testing. I was just kind of curious if they have started this phase yet.

    Game Testing Started: 9th July 2010 - Read - Signup Here!

     

    Apparently from the features list it looks like it started sometime in July, i have yet to receive one either.

    Help me Bioware, you're my only hope.

    Is ToR going to be good? Dude it's Bioware making a freaking star wars game, all signs point to awesome. -G4tv MMo report.

    Yes, there is currently a closed beta being conducted, I know this for a fact because I am in it and have a friend who was invited to a different round of testing awhile back.

    Your argument is like a two legged dog with an eating disorder...weak and unbalanced.

    Can't wait either, playing Zentia to pass the time (yes i'm trying to read the text but after seeing ToR is kinda like whats the point?) 

    Can't wait for it to come out.  Now if only i could get into beta.... so much hands on experience at work and i can't use it...oh well.

    Help me Bioware, you're my only hope.

     Unless they lifted the NDA, you just broke it.

    Really depends on the NDA, some NDA are very strict and say you can't talk about the game at all. Others say you can say your in the beta but thats it.

    If it's the former, yes it was just broken, if it's the latter, no Dreanor didn't break it.  NDA vary quite a bit from one another

    We have seen many questions about the Game Testing Agreement and we want to clarify a few things.


    1. Per the Game Testing Agreement, a user can state there is a Game Testing Program.

    2. Per the Game Testing Agreement, when someone is selected for testing, they can disclose the fact that they are a member of the Game Testing Program.

    That is the extent of it and anything else would be a violation of the Game Testing Agreement. Users that are found to post or even repost confidential materials (such as invitations, Game Tester Portal, etc) will be permanently removed from the Game Testing Program and subject to discipline up to and including permanent removal from the service. This is not limited to screenshots of the game but taking "screen grabs" or sharing of confidential documentation and materials.



    If you have any questions pertaining to this, ask them here.

    Copied from the website, according to that, draenor is okay, stating your in the beta is well within the NDA for you to do.  Stating features however is not.

     I do believe that NDA's talk about telling things about the game not if you are in a beta... Contest are run on a whole slew of Web sites, tons of people are in Beta's and get invited every day and its not hard to find out who they are. Now when it comes to Game mechanics thats when you break them
