Shit, I hope there's nothing fundamentally wrong with the game and that it's just not polished. I can put up with silly things but not big things. Ugh, I hope they at least patch the shit out of it in the first month or two.

If I gave off the impression I was surprised at the release date because of my beta experience that isn't entirely true, the date being so soon just kind of surprised me. No one panic just yet! Man this just sucks I just want to frickin talk about the game!!! Bioware was so stupid when they closed the official beta forums the week after the beta ended. Now none of us have any way to discuss the game anymore.

The beta forums are open and should still be viewable from people in the last beta. So you should be able to see them and post there again even though you're not currently in the beta anymore.


EDIT: Though if you were a beta weekend person, then this may not hold to the same rules as closed beta.

My buddy let me play it, and I enjoyed the few hours I played. This was back in like June or so I believe, and I was playing a Jedi Knight.

So read between the lines... it's not a finished product. I'm really thinking about cancelling my preorder now which is disappointing that yet another space-themed MMO has been fucked up.

You don't need feedback from beta to tell it's being rushed at this point. We've been shown very little in terms of PvP, almost nothing on instances, and as far as I'm concerned the hype is riding on trailers and bits of info; not gameplay.

They aren't ready to talk about their product yet because it's not done. I've come to accept that MMOs will always launch in a beta state, because there's really no drawing the line and saying "there, it's done". All I care about at this point is: will it be fun? I think the answer to that will be yes, but the staying power will be what BW needs for it to survive. That one worries me.

yea a lot of things don't work around launch...things really start rolling after the 3rd month...but by that time they will have already bragged how they sold millions of copies :(

Star wars galaxies for example, took months for them to do player cities and mounts.

I like that BioWare sends me and email asking me to take a survey about my game testing experience. I'd take your stupid survey IF I WAS IN THE BETA! They're taunting me and I don't like it!

Yeah, everybody got that e-mail. The best way to check if you got in or not is to check the website:

http://www.swtor.com/tester


Though due to those two faux mails, the traffic that was generated towards the site overloaded it, heh.

Lol, I wasn't even important enough to get trolled by that survey email. I'm glad I still don't have an invite because I have zero time to play it right now.

This is one beta I'm sad I didn't get invited to. I'm looking forward to this game so much.

Everyone who wants to beta this before launch will get a chance to. That's more or less a paraphrase of what they've said on beta.

I don't know if they're doing another wave of invites but I had one in my inbox this afternoon at 5CST. I also received the troll email last week (not sure if that means anything but worth pointing out).

Is that for Beta Weekends or Closed Beta? My source says closed beta invites are closed for this phase, but Beta Weekends still go out (which is separate from closed beta).

It's for beta weekend. We had another clan member get invited the other day.

I was just invited to the beta weekend again. Only problem is I am swamped with work all week/weekend and will have zero time to play it. I think I might just decline the offer unfortunately. I wish I could just gift it to one of my friends who would really like to be in it.

EDIT: UGH I just declined the offer, this really sucks.

I'd be curious if people who were in beta weekends once before and came back, if their characters from the last weekend would still be there or if they wipe every week.

Always wiped because it's a new build every time from what I understand.

For those playing this weekend beta my name will be Jaxom Spiegel, or if not I will post whatever name I do get. Hit me up and we can quest together, I will most likely be playing a Smuggler or Sith Inquisitor or both.

They won't be sending out any more invites until next weekend, they send the invites out on Tuesday so you have enough time to download it and be able to play on Friday.

Ahh I just assumed they sent them out on the weekend. Thanks for the heads up. I haven't had time to read much about the game lately due to work.
