New Tweet from the official account. So, ZAM, I can has beta?

Keep a look out for exciting new opportunities to get Beta Test access! Your favorite FFXIV fan sites just might be able to help!


Certainly I hope they're not talking about the German sites? Would be fun for the English sites to have some to give out.

I saw that! I wish they'd just open Beta up all ready I'm dying!!

I'm worried my Beta application is for PS#... I picked the PC box, but I entered my FF13 registration code and now I read the stub more closely and it says it's for PS3 beta... By the time they Beta that I'll have PC to play =P

I would guess a "beta key giveaway" type thing like say OnRPG.com does often, but who knows.

Since it's on the English Twitter I doubt it will be referring to the German sites. Guessing it will only be the big sites like Zam, Eorzeapedia and Core that get keys.

Certainly looks like new peeps are going to be invited tomorrow.

From what I heard there were server stress issues when they let the last lot of testers in, this sounds like a logic ramp up to the next level of stress testing to me.

Be sure to keep an eye on the spam folders :-)

Knowing my luck I'll get an invite early next week just before I go on holiday for 9 days. Still, that's better than nothing.

I submitted my application a few days ago, right after I ordered all my new parts. It would be fantastic to get in the beta and to actually give some meaningful feedback on the game as oppposed to many who consider it "playing early" or "getting a head start".

All I know is that Beta 3 should be starting sometime soon. Maybe that's what the tweet was referring to? I know it wont be Open Beta, but new invites should be sent out I bet. Good luck to everyone Smiley: cool

Well they've only got about a month at most before they have to start pressing the actual DVDs, so now is the time to get stuff done. We're all going to be downloading a mega patch on release day any way, but the more they can nail down before then, the better it is for every one.

The ZAM forum community has been my one and only one-stop source for all my Final Fantasy addiction. I'm looking forward to the day when the game goes gold mid-September but a beta invite would be the ultimate icing on the cake. :D

Man, I sure hope ZAM has some surprises for us tomorrow too. I mean, I don't even have an account on FFXIV Core or other fansites. I think that shows that this is obviously my favorite site as well. ;)

Seriously, a beta invite would be sweet to get to know some people, as well as I'd love to help make a game I want to love into a better game again, but on the other hand I won't sweat it if I don't make it in cause there's something to be said for the "freshness" factor on release day too. :)

First thing I do when I get online is check my yahoo mail account in hopes of a beta invite.

The second thing I do is come here in hopes of new information or juicy speculation. Now I can come to Zam in hopes of a beta invite as well. :D

Also the only site I've used for FFXI/XIV since XI ps2 release.


Do I win?
