There was a post awhile back that bio-ware said that they want everyone to eventually be invite so im not stressing waiting for a beta invite plus I don't really care I don't wanna go though withdrawal lol for the last 56 days.

I also think an early weekend invite must be cruel
Bigger beta invites incoming

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.
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.
