We’ve spent so little time together... Not anymore! Beta Tests will henceforth be receiving a significant buff to length!

They're not kidding either, the testing times per day are 5x as long as before, for a total of 20 hours each session.

Seems they're moving along quite rapidly. I would assume the next step is to go 24 hours then stress tests? Nice to see them so confident in it.

Yeah, that's a big jump. Things must be looking good right now.

That's sweet 20hrs a day. Their going to increase the server population more and more, so more and more invites to all. From what I have read and seen from Offical websites this game is looking great.

I'm just saying Hypothetically we can see how long it takes to lvl.

Open Beta = Collector's Edition. I am 100% sure they will not have an Open Beta, release date is too close. They'll be printing the DVDs and stuff at least two weeks before head start. Really no reason for an Open Beta, they have just sent out a lot of invitations today. Server load testing won't be hard for them now that all regions are playing together and for a longer time. I assume there will be more Beta invites sent out but that is about it.

Anyways, nice to hear things seem to be moving along smoothly.

I agree I don't think their will be an open beta for the pc, PS3 not so sure about, The 22 -29 will be the open beta. I'm sure on the 29th their will be the BIG server maintanence to fix what we Beta.. I mean early axcess players will find.

:P well they better move this quickly, just 2 months and 9 away from the game going live, so I guess they must hurry if they want to release the game as bug-less as possible.

Can they do a Open Beta after the release period? using the subscription months of players as a Beta testing period? I know this happens a lot on free to play games, but those are free and they normally wait sometime before releasing their cash shop and such, to prevent any complains about players spending money in a Beta that might turn out "wrong".

I am trying to think if any other P2P game had this kind of Open Beta after the game got released and players are being charged for it.

I think every MMO launch in history qualifies
