    I can see what you are saying, but, beta invite or not, this has got to be the biggest WSW yet. It's beta baby!!! One step closer to launch!

    Oh yeah! Congrats Carbine, I hope beta goes well on your end. I know everyone is dying for some beta action.

    Excited for the beta launch, but wish Carbine was not following the SWTOR communication model of rolling out beta invites. Too many people will simply sit and spam F5 to refresh email folders thinking they will get the invite, when in reality, maybe only few thousand get the opportunity to test the game today. Why not simply lay out a clear expectation for hardcore fans? Also, why is it that the NDA prohibits one from simply revealing they are in the beta? Seems a bit much.

    Well it is kind of hard to give actual time frames since emails can run into all kinds of delays as they wind their way through the tubes. Though being a little more clear with, "all invites for this wave have now been sent," would be nice.

    Personally, I would suspect that only a few hundred invites have gone out so far.

    While I think not even being able to say you've been invited is a bit much? It should at least help reduce potential pressure on testers if they don't tell anyone they are even in the Closed Beta to begin with.

    At least they aren't just having beta weekends so that people can play during the week and not have to debate calling off plans.

    Where did you see this? They could still have scheduled time when the servers are open for player testing.

    Most games do have a line of thought, im guessing so does Wildstar, but i tried to search about it and i couldn't find anything. Either my searching skills sucks or this info is just not out there.

    So my question is hows the process of invitation done? who and why gets invited at this point?

    Sorry if i failed to notice this somewhere just point me to it please and delete this.

    thank you in advance.

    I guess right now it's based off of system specs.

    Very nice news this!

    I haven't set my expectations too high so I won't be disappointed to bad when I don't get a beta key.

    Anways, congratulations to Carbine and to everybody who got into the beta!

    It's a sad WSW for people who didn't get into the beta :(. First you did not get in and second there seems to be no new information about the game. Now we have to wait for the next WSW and hope they talk more about the game. Hopefully next WSW does not exclusively involve a new beta wave.

    Hahaha! Oh wow, no, I did not notice this!! :roflamo: Maybe it's their version of a strange sort of "Easter egg," to show that WildStar is live! XD It's out there, living... Living being. Okay, maybe that's a stretch. :laugh:
