    1 million signed up for the gw2 beta

    just checked twitter and apparently 1 million people have signed up :O

    I see my chances of getting into beta slowly slipping down the drain...not really. Rather quickly actually. ><

  3. #3
    I'll never get into beta with that many people. :S I really hope signing up on 30 different computers was enough though.

    Saw it as well. here is their photo of it http://www.flickr.com/photos/arenanet/6926243899/


    i dont know what the +13.000 means. maybe that they will let 13k players in the first event? chances that i get picked is more than minimal

    The 13k likely means that's how many are still queued in the counter or something.

    Beta signups were only available for 48 hours, and in that time:

    1million signed up, and prob 300k of them are extra emails by people, with more acc's

    That's pretty damn insane just for a beta signup.

    I guess they want that last 10k.

    From Twitter:
    We're keeping the #GuildWars2w beta sign up page open for just a bit longer! https://beta.guildwars2.com/ ~RB
    If you haven't signed up here's your last chance!

    Actually with only 1 million signups our chances to get into the beta is higher than I thought. If they allow just a thousand to test it will be 0.1% chance to get in. That is very high odds. Also they would invite more and more so assuming no more signup between atleast the first two weekends its even higher than 0.2%

    Thats amazing considering it was only open for 48 hours, pretty exciting times for GW2.

    I think this is a pretty good indication of just how popular GW2 will be. I mean 1 mil sign-ups over a period of 48 hours. That is pretty god damn amazing!

    This is obviously a sign that the game is dying, they only got one million sign ups for beta, they needed to hit at least 10 million, the game is already dead, cancel the game, merge servers, fire everybody, start WW3, there's only 4 billion years to go until the earth is roasted by the sun becoming a red giant, take me to your leader.

    Sorry I had to get my digs in at the doubters :P

    I know this is never gonna happen but maybe since I signed up in the first hour when the beta was announced, I'll get in on the first beta? Yeah I know that's not going to affect my chances at all :'(
