Beta Invites Sending Now!

#1 Posted by zyn (2591 posts) -

Few of the 1 million+ who have signed up for the Guild Wars 2 beta are reportedly now receiving e-mails for the beta.

A friend of mine has already received his.

GET HYPE!

Im so hyped that this means that I most likely did not get into the beta!. YEAHHH.

There is no definitive proof yet just a lot of he said she said,

and a link to a new page on the guild wars website.

The real question is (if they did actually get in) how many of these people know that they're in violation of the NDA and are likely to be banned from said beta.

Holy shite confirmed through twitter by arenanet invites have gone out

#6 Edited by Maystack (902 posts) -

Yeah, for all you guys know, I actually have a beta invite, I'm just not allowed to tell you because of the NDA.

I don't :(

I can confirm that throwing money at the screen does NOT get you a beta invite : /

Here's hoping, I really want to play an MMO again but everything post-WoW has been a colossal letdown.

@Branwulf: Pre-purchasing on April 10th actually will :)

nothing.. :*(

I think they're sending invites over the next few days, and I'd say most people have anywhere from 100/1 to 50/1 chance of getting in.

It's very odd that everything released post-WoW just hasn't been able to reach the high bar it set even as WoW seemingly gets more tired year after year.

There are new shooters, new RPGs new Driving games, which all raise the bar year after year while no MMO has simply been a better game. It's seriously bizarre to me. They got WoW so right first time round that people have insane expectations.

I'm rooting for Guild Wars too, and I think it can capture that same wonder that nobody's quite been able to imagine for almost a decade.

It's going to be different, but that's what everyone wants.

I bet the invites include a requirement to go to the forums and post about how disappointed you are you didn't get an invite. In other words... I CAN'T TRUST ANY OF YOU!

#19 Posted by mazik765 (2315 posts) -

So time to start praying to any existing or non-existing deity that may help my chances getting an invite....

#20 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2495 posts) -

*sigh* no signs of an invite in my inbox. Not that unexpected - but hey, only like 3 weeks until the pre-purchasing comes up.

Count me in for the "better luck next time" camp.

#22 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7613 posts) -

@Subjugation: Invites are still going out over the next few days.. but yeah, I'm not particularly hopeful at this point.

At least we can get in for sure next month, and I expect a steady stream of leaks until then.

Found out from a friend who did get an invite that the beta is this very weekend. Hope I can still get one!

#24 Edited by katanalauncher (215 posts) -

I didn't receive an invite and is not installing the beta right now. ;)

#25 Posted by SirPsychoSexy (1328 posts) -

I am so amped! Me and my friend may or may have not gotten into the beta! ... ;)

#26 Posted by Funkydupe (3312 posts) -

Beta I want want I beta I beta want! ...

#27 Posted by henriksultan (13 posts) -

#28 Posted by selbie (1846 posts) -

Alas, my inbox is without rapport. Woe is me.

#29 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

No invite for me, I hope I get one though. This game looks fucking rad.

#36 Posted by HadesTimes (802 posts) -

So has anyone been told through the registration when the beta weekend is? Because supposedly that's the first one for everyone who pre-ordered as well. Thanks.
