For those of us who didn’t get in to last weekend’s BETA testing extravaganza, but had to hear tales of purple lightning from the twittersphere, it was a bit of a bummer to hear that this weekend will not be host to another round of BETA invites.
Given that there is a new BETA build right around the corner, it makes perfect sense. But that doesn’t make folks any less antsy about it. For now, we’re left reading the very thorough BETA FAQs and the BETA weekend #1 testing post mortem.
A few highlights from the BETA FAQs:
- NDA is still in effect. Other than saying you are in the BETA test, you are not allowed to talk about your BETA experience. Leaking content online can get you kicked out of testing and blocked from future testing.
- Currently, there are no plans for those who’ve participated in a BETA weekend to get a second shot at BETA. So be sure to maximize the use of that time!
- If you don’t think you’d be able to play during the BETA weekend timeframe for which you receive an invite, you can decline and be thrown back in the pool for a potential (but not guaranteed) future shot at it. (you can’t just defer it.)
- Guild testing and BETA weekends are separate programs.
