Possibilities of Closed Beta

Posted by Suzina On 6/24/10 9 comments

Information about SWTOR's closed beta broke out on the forums, or rather, it BROKE the forums. As the official forums are down, nobody can see the original thread anymore, but this news story gives the possibilities of beta some more weight: mmosite.com

this makes me depressed how i didnt get a golden ticket but atleast we will get a lot of info on the game!! if we get some leaked info that there definatly will be so i cant wait for june 28th for it all to be revealed cuz the beta ends the 27th i dont see why its so short

Reportedly, there's only 100 to 200 invites going out, and the test will only be for a short time for a couple classes. There's over 1 million accounts on the forums, I think I read, so chances for everyone are pretty darn slim.

Well, disclosing any information is against the NDA. Whoever does so will probably have a few problems when Bioware figures out.

As for all of the info concerning game testing, I'm still waiting on Sean to confirm the details. I think he was going to announce this on Friday since he has previously promised that the community will know about game testing first.

I'm sure once testing starts we'll get leaks though. Even though it's very small groups of people doing the testing, there will no doubt be screenshots and dissections posted.

I think this is especially true because it's not like open beta where you expect to have access all the way up until launch, this more looks like a couple weekends with the game. Once a person's short time with closed beta access ends, they're likely to give their impressions, complaints, info, ect...

That being said, I imagine the information gained won't be much different than what we heard from E3, where it was playable on the floor.

do you guys think this is just the beggining of the invitations or are they going to have alot more because i hope they got more

I'm sure in the future they will have more, but at first it will be extremely limited. typically the majority of players don't get in till around open beta.

surprised no leaked gameplay yet that ive seen

That's because if they catch your ass, it looks like they can stop you from subscribing to the game, ever. Not sure how this would work in reality but they seem to theraten it in the NDA.

Probably an IP ban of some sorts. But the implications given by Sean Dahlberg seemed pretty severe.
