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)

that is equally as valid as any of the other speculation.

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.

Lol... I remember downloading XI the I got it on a dial up modem. Then using high-speed internet I remember downloading XIV patches about 100x slower than by XI patches.

I do recall during P2 of beta there was a few people showing up on the forums who had already gotten an invite for PS3 version.

I'm watching the countdown timer on reddit and it's making me feel like the kitten getting kicked through that field goal.
