    I also think an early weekend invite must be cruel

    I thought it was bad when I was just waiting for the game to come out, but after playing for a few weeks in the Beta I'm completely addicted. Been TOR-free for 3 days now while waiting for the new build, and the withdrawal is KILLING ME!

    Amen, brother, amen. I keep checking the testing forums like a crack addict at the methadone clinic. "Man, can I get my fix yet man? Man, c'mon man, you know I'm good for it man! This'll be the last one, I promise! C'MON MAN! HELP A WOOKIEE OUT!"

    Next, our biggest event of the year, the December 20th launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic.
    This is inarguably the most anticipated game of the year, an epic MMO that makes each player
    the hero of their own Star Wars saga. The Old Republic is in Beta right now and players are
    blown away by the immersive story, dynamic combat and authentic Star Wars feel. In the
    coming weeks we‟ll invite hundreds of thousands of players into our biggest Beta test to date.

    I hope this will include atleast a portion of Australian testers.

    I thought that some Aussie testers have been invited already. Granted I'm sure more would be welcome, and help test latency to the "Official" Australian servers.

    There will likely not ever be an open beta. ATM, permanent testers are likely ~ 1% of the total amount of people who signed up to test, with beta weekends inviting an additional ~4% for a few days.

    Most people won't ever get in to the tests.

    Apparently everyone saw/heard about the beta announcement(s) at NYCC or wherever they announced it..having a hard time remembering where it was right now. Anyways, the speaker said something along the lines of "If you're not in beta yet you'll be getting in very soon." And that was a stretch of the truth. Not everyone will get into beta. It's a test...and as such you don't include the entire testing focus. Just a few here and a few there.

    This is probably their way of having "open" beta. They send out invites to everyone who have applied for it and then still have NDA so people cant spoil the story.

    No, they stated multiple times that there will not be an open beta and they definitely won't be "inviting everyone who applied". If the new build is deployed next week then I expect that they will start inviting more and more people in the coming weeks.

    But they have stated that "almost" everyone who have applied will get invited. And if you read what I wrote then I mean that it will still be closed but since almost everyone who applied will be invited it will be a form of open beta.

    I was under the impression that:

    Sorta, it's supposed to be stress tests, prolly to see what the server caps will be. I miss being in beta... hopefully the new build is this coming week.
