Mark Jacobs - WAR Beta Q/A
Quelling a minor outburt from a few Warhammer Online fans, EA Mythic's Mark Jacobs put together a pretty lengthy explanation of how beta testing is working right now. Who has gotten in, who won't get in, and how many people are testing is all covered in his Q&A. If you are as anxious as we are about getting in, this might explain why you are watching from the sidelines like the rest of us.
Question #1 - Does everyone who signs up to beta test WAR actually get to beta test it?
Answer #1 - No. Though we would love to allow everyone who signs up to participate in the beta, there is limited access to our closed beta test and access is not guaranteed. Our WAR Beta signup (https://betacenter.eamythic.com/login.php) explains this in great detail: There are a limited number of Closed Beta spots available and not everyone that applies will be admitted. Closed Beta testers will be selected based on a variety of factors, including computer system specs, game experience, newsletter subscription, and community involvement. The Closed Beta is limited to players 18 years of age or older, and requires the acceptance of the Beta Test Agreement located at the bottom of this form. A similar statement is also on the cards we have been giving out at shows for the last two years.
