Thanks for the heads-up, I singed up too.

I haven't played an MMOG since beta testing Ultima Online. I attempted to spin that as a positive.

I'm not sure who this game is gonna turn out. It could be good or a major disappointment. Keep those of us without computers that can run games like that updated.

It doesn't appear to be bringing much to the table. Pretty normal crap, really. They took the guildwars weapon-specific skills thing into their game, and some pseudo-action combat, but it doesn't appear t be that great.

I woke up to find an invitation today. Only for a three hour stress test on Friday night, but I can unlock a monkey companion for the full game, so...

Is there any way/advantage to meeting up during this?

I think there is a way to be on the same game instance, not sure if there will be more than one anyway.
Not sure how yet.

I don't think there will be any advantage, other than someone who is willing to get beat on to test pvp maybe.

I havent got thru registration yet, they recommended clearing your browser cache, doing that now.

So, people are not supposed to say if they are a beta tester or not.

But if I was, my in game name would be Tzan.

I can neither confirm nor deny that I signed up successfully.

If I did, and all I saw was a Windows download, I'd be perplexed.

A response from the support team (they're pretty fast) confirms it, Windows-only. I guess I could look into SME kind of partition deal, but honestly I'm just too lazy to go to all that effort for three hours of beta, even with the promise of a sweet-ass monkey.

Not that I'm a potential beta tester or anything. It would be wrong to say so.

Yikes that's a lot of people.
