Hi there everyone,
I have my own assumptions on the duration of the closed and open beta phases of GW2, but was wondering if anyone had any truly reputable sources on the length they'll entail.
Officially I think it's something along the lines of "as long as is needed".
So same old same old
Me and my hubby were figuring at least a good 2-3 months. Or longer if needed.
I don't really mind, I don't want a buggy game.
I'm expecting this beta phase to be 1-2 months, then 1-2 of a more public signup beta, then maybe 1 week of open beta and launching in May? June? Gotta figure there has to be some form of large public testing to stress/balance WvW and the server prior to launch.
2 months is my guess. But I don't want in the beta :/ Even though I would test it hardcore, I will still see it as a part demo, part test. It will ruin my first impression, which I want to have with my best friend at day 1. We will be sitting beside each other, downloading it at the same time, making our two brother characters at the same time and level together all the way to level 80!
