    Legit Beta testing weekend ?

    Got this email from [email protected]


    Greetings Karjis,

    Your account has been selected to participate in an upcoming Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Beta Weekend Test. If you have previously tested or are currently participating in an ongoing test, you will be invited again. Additional details for this upcoming test will be announced soon.

    As part of this test, we will be partnering with games industry sites to distribute additional beta codes as necessary. This will help ensure we meet our population goals, so we can effectively stress test our servers in preparation for launch. Please do not acquire and redeem one of these codes as it could jeopardize your ability to participate in this test.

    As a reminder, should you choose to participate, everything associated with this test (game information, process, forums communication, etc.) is confidential and may not be discussed outside of the Game Testing forum. Additionally, your participation in the Game Testing Program is subject to the Game Testing Agreement.


    May the Force be with you,
    The Star Wars: The Old Republic Team

    From what I've heard the e-mail you received is for the big stress test that isn't this weekend. I got the same e-mail, got all excited just like you, then realized they sent this stupid notification over a week ahead of time.

    It just seems very unprofessional the way they're doing it. No date for when the test is for? Why even bother with the notification? Seems like it's just a tease to keep interest.

    I think it's not a tease so much as a full on stress test to see if we can crash the server. I'm up for that challenge, mind you, but waiting until Monday to send the invite might have been a better plan to reduce confusion. Considering everyone was spam-refreshing their inboxes for a few days and then the day the Beta weekend starts everyone gets the email? Bad tact. Still, it's a much needed stress test so that when we dog-pile in we don't explode the servers.

    I put this in the twenty thousand threads everywhere, because no one seems to /search any more:

    It IS legit.

    It is NOT this weekend.

    It is most likely, as stated one million times in thousands of threads: A stress test, to see what the servers can handle. /dingdingding

    yea its for EVERYBODY i have a theory about it though i doubt it is set up this way.

    this FUTURE beta is going to be with EVERYBODY registered guillds included set on LIVE servers, this will work for guilds mostly since they get p,laces first based on server type and location, then after guilds are set they disperse all the other players throughout the server community.

    the TEST will be how these servers respond to the MASS login and sharded/instanced starter areas and see if they are up to the pressure. that way they have an idea of what needs to be addressed BEFORE the early access hits.
