Current Plans for World Transfers
We wanted to briefly discuss the current plans for selecting new worlds and world transfers for A Realm Reborn. Once the global data centers are set up for A Realm Reborn, we are planning the following for world transfers.
In the event that you don't complete the transfer procedure, you will be transferred to a pre-determined world.
In the event you complete the transfer procedure, you can select from a list of worlds you can move to and will be transferred to the world of your choice.

In order to eliminate any concerns about being transferred to a world you didn’t want to move to or being separated from your friends, we will be keeping the transfer procedure open for a long period of time as well as making various announcements to ensure that everyone is aware and can go where they like.

For Beta Test phase 3, fundamentally we are planning to allow anyone who possesses a Square Enix Account to participate in testing, so it will be possible to make contact with your friends from within the game.

We will be preparing thorough details regarding this whole process so that there is no confusion, and will be announcing them at a later date.

This seems pretty cool. Will be getting into the Beta on phase 3 now instead of wating for last phase. Will wait and see how the other post comes along (sticky) as to which server will choose to go on.

Yeah for all intents and purposes, beta phase 4 is the launch of the game in all but having to pay for it right then. You'll select your server, the last features will be unlocked, and your characters will carry past that point (unlike all the other beta phases).

If I don't get in to beta until phase 3, my plan is to use it not only to test (because, yes, test things..) but also to try out the different races and cities to see where I'd like to start and what I want to play. And then in phase 4, make that character.

Phase 4 unless it has been changed due to the announcement Wint just posted is for open beta and everyone that doesn't have a SE account can create one and join in the beta

Yes.

But functionally, it's the game's launch. It's open to everyone with a heartbeat and characters will persist through to the game's official launch point. You just don't quite have to pay for it at that point.

Yeah is a marketing tactic, invite everyone to Open Beta and get them excited about the game. Then say Hey all off your work still waiting for you, just go a buy a copy of the official game and you can just jump back into action.

Remeber these time around SE cannot count sells as a major income for ARR release since everyone that purchase 1.0 will get ARR for free.
