    Beta Stress test - everyone is invited!

    Thought this was worth it's own thread, my girlfriend and I just received emails talking about an upcoming Weekend Beta test, a Huge Stress Test it seems. Everyone that has accepted the testing agreement prior to today will be invited, and a number of invites will be sent out to game related sites for others to pick up too. Looks like it's going to be a big mock up for the real launch.

    When we started our Beta Testing Weekends, we told you that each weekend would include more testers than the last. We’re excited to announce that later this month we will be conducting our largest Beta Testing Weekend yet, specifically designed to help us stress test our servers in preparation for the launch of Star Wars™: The Old Republic™.

    How can you take part in this coming Beta Test Weekend? Well, for starters we are happy to announce that anyone who has signed up for our Game Testing Program prior to today, November 11th, will get invited! Invites will be sent in the coming weeks.

    "coming weeks" it says, so people who got invited today aren't part of a mass invite to everyone who signed up to the agreement

    Actually I have a real life, I'm just on my friends computer while we have a drink around his house before we go BMX'ing down the castle near by his house and found all the geeks spouting rubbish.

    There were two different sets of invites that have gone out, it would appear. One for this, as of yet, unscheduled test, and one for the current beta weekend or whenever it is.

    2 days isn't enough to decide whether this is a good long-lasting MMO to be in or not, imo.

    You need to have signed the testing agreement. Having an account alone isn't enough.

    For those people who did get an invite, was it sent via email? I haven't gotten one yet, and I've been signed up for beta testing for a year or so.

    I got mine via email. And for those who may not bother to read through their entire email, if you got selected for the weekend test it says specifically to NOT go looking for one of the stress test keys as it can jeopordize your weekend test I guess.

    This is for sure a very bold move by TOR. It could very well net them allot of potential customers, or loose them some potential customers. I sure hope everything goes without a hitch.

    That email isn't for this weekends test. It's telling you that you will be invited to the big stress test in a couple of weeks and not to go and sign up for the beta keys they are giving away on other websites

    Yea that's why we have early access and the 30 days that come with the game purchase. Just saying.

    Does this announcement mean I can play Star Wars: The Old Republic this weekend (November 11th to 13th)?

    No it does not, unless you have a previous testing invite - either to this weekend (November 11th to 13th) or to general Game Testing (ongoing). The Beta Testing Weekend we are referring to will happen within the next few weeks.
    The brand new crop of emails that just went out are NOT for this weekend, unfortunately.

    They just sent us an email telling us we're selected for something everyone is selected for, sometime in the future. Again.
