Since beta has been announced im going nuts!  I really want beta to go smoothly and for the game to release.

If all else fails, run and squeal.

Well, see, I *am* excited, but we don't exactly know when beta will be just yet - We know signups run from this Wednesday until next Wednesday, but how soon after that will they accounce who's in and who's out... And how soon after that does the playtest actually start.  We don't know.

God: Bender, being God isn't easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you. And if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch, like a safecracker or a pickpocket.
Bender: Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money.
God: Yes, if he makes it look like an electrical thing. When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

You know, if none of us get picked it's really, really, really going to suck.  You know that, don't you?

Surely there's some sort of trick we can pull that involves explosives or a large number of automatic weapons that can secure us a spot on the Beta team.....

Er, nevermind, I didn't say that.

...........Hmmmmm . .  .  .   .   .    .    .     .     .      .      .

Well im sure they are going to receive at least 500,000 applicants...i mean really EQ still has a population of 400,000.  Numbers might be a million+  

In otherwords...Kailef said it right guns and bombs.

I should have made all of you a [shadow=red,left,300]yourname@wowguild.com[/shadow] email address.  I wonder if that would increase your chances.  Probrably not, but every little bit helps, eh?

P.S. Still unable to sign up, that site is as busy as heck....

And from what i hear its a total random process of picking?  Thats a little hard to believe.  Just mention something that will make you stand out from the rest of the group.  I got accepted to the beta for shadowbane but i never got around to it hehe.

There's a lot of stuff involved in a Beta selection process, honestly.

It's not random, not at all.  But they're not necessarily looking for intelligent comments or what not - If there's one thing I know about a Beta, they're looking for the right demographics as far as your computer hardware is concerned.  They also like to have testers who have had prior Beta Test experience, or are professional troubleshooters of some sort.

What IS random is that they are, as is stated on their site, not picking anyone based on if they apply first or not.
