Even if that is so that every 1.0 owner would get in in waves during the different phases of beta 3, I would really love to get in beta during this weekend. Its the only weekend for me for next 3 weeks that i would have time to play :/

Have to wait and see.

I'm thinking people will be phased in over the 4 tests that make up beta 3 so if you don't get in today, you will be joining in subsequent tests as part of this beta.

The reason I think this is that legacy players until yesterday believed they were going to have access to their legacy characters from the start of beta 3 because everything written everywhere said version 1.0 characters would be available in beta 3. Yesterday we found out we are not getting access to them until test 2 of beta 3.

By breaking the beta down into components, they can still let all version 1.0 account holders access during beta 3 but do so without blowing up the servers.

I am sure you will all be in shortly.


I have a feeling you are right. I was totally expecting when I posted to be followed by like 40 more posts of getting in... but apparently not. I saw a couple posts on the gamefaqs forum, but not much else, so I feel like they are just sending out very small batches at a time. I'm hopeful this isn't the case, as I understand how frustrating it would be to have to wait longer. Keep the faith!

Possibly they are sending them in waves throughout the night so that not everyone is downloading the client all at once? (wishful thinking)

Very possible also. My download already finished and ranged from about 2-5 mb/s, which is pretty amazing compared to anything I've ever downloaded from SE before. So that's definitely possible.

Yeah its hard to say at this point really. Could be that they will be sending invites to 1.0 players todayish before beta, could be that they will send those in waves...

Will know for sure after this weekend i guess :). But it still seems that not that much of invites has been sent yet as there is not that much of spam of people who got in at least yet.

Hopefully If I'm going to get an invite it's soon. With my 1.5mbps connection it will probably take me 24+ hours to download the game.

Yep >< just saw it. The timer to know that I'm not getting picked for the kickball team.

They're still not allowing video are they? Like youtube Let's Plays of phase 3?

I know that would make me happy enough if I could at least watch somebody else play.

To all who got in - Congrats and have fun! But also dont forget the purpose of Beta testing in the first place :P

It's up to you guys to help make this the top MMO E-V-A-R-Z (?), with as few bugs and glitches as possible, so report report report!

How does this work? I think I got a PC beta code... anyone want to trade PS3 for PC code?

I guess my question is... for those who got the PS3 code... was it a code like xxxx-xxxx-xxxx or did you just get a code to add to your square enix account?

So if I just register this code to my square enix account. It will give me the option to choose PS3 beta? Or do the PS3 beta emails, come with both codes in them?

Sorry for being vague.

The email gives you both the codes with guidelines asking you to first register through square and register for beta forums, then onto the psn code that opens the beta for downloading. Hope that helps^^

*edit. I should stress to you that the ps3 email is a very specific email.

It was an EU code. I'm suspecting maybe the NA codes to pop in several more hours? Start of the new day maybe?

Thanks for the quick response. Any info on the size of the download? I'm hoping to get my code and sleep while it downloads off PSN.
