    When they think it is ready. They are lucky that I am not in the closed beta. I would find so many bugs that the game would not be able to come out till the middle of 2014..:)

    But seriously...They are working hard to make it a good game before open beta so they wont have much to fix when the time comes. I would rather wait a little longer for a polished game than play the game that is unplayable and not fun to play.

    I guess myself its end of october. (Black friday / Christmas release) .. It fits and sounds logical. Anyway. They said in SDCC ( San diego Comic Con) That they had their last "preparations" before THEE open beta. So i have my hopes

    I very much doubt they will have a totally open beta. I'm pretty sure that Gaffney said in a video that open beta to them is a closed one with no NDA. I expect closed beta numbers to rise a lot when they begin elder game testing but it will stay invite only.

    Lots of companies make the mistake of having a beta where they let too many people in too soon and never get anything changed or improved upon. If they can release the game with a trial version of the game and have B2P model I don't think an open beta is needed. Open beta is purely for marketing hence why if they do have open beta, it's a long, long way off due to the amount of changes currently going on and need to happen.

    Open beta isn't really a beta nowadays though. Everyone treats it like a preview.
