    Well it's pretty good news guys.

    They said multiple closed beta's, this means if you didn't got a mail for the first one, you might get one in the week after. More chance for everyone

Will there be an open beta like WoW had? will the closed beta be followed by many more closed beta's?

    Anyone got a hunch?
    I have a feeling that the game is probably pretty much finished and that's why they're waiting a month to start the next phase of beta. They'll just be using these next few weeks to make tweaks and fix bugs, so that when the beta does begin players can focus more on playing the game instead of all the bugs. I'm hoping they took a note from SWTORs recent release and will try to fix all the known bugs before the public gets access to the game.

    Then the public closed betas will just be to test their servers. The beta events will also be on the weekend, so it gives them all week in between each event to make more tweaks and fix more bugs. Each weekend you'll have a chance to beta test the game, and getting in for one weekend doesn't mean you'll be playing in any of the subsequent beta weekends.

    They've said that they'll need tens of thousands of players to test the game, and they've also said that most players will get a chance to test it.

    There probably won't be anything like an open beta, but they've said that there will be another chance for people to apply to the beta. I'm gonna guess this will happen shortly before the game is released so that they can test the servers on an even larger scale.

    I'd say if we're lucky and things go smoothly the release date will be in May, but no later than June.


    Disclaimer - most of what I said is just speculation, and some of it is having high hopes, and some of it might be giving them too much credit, but I'd like to think they're right on track to delivering a quality product.

    Hype on
    Maybe they'll take pity on those of us stuck in the arse end of nowhere and let us bask in the glory that is GW2.

    Doesn't take away the fact that a month-6 weeks ago we didn't have anything confirmed yet. Atleast we now know what date to look out for.

    That's how I see it anyway, doesn't take the fact away that it's going to be a long month though.

    Still find it odd how this late in the dev cycle they haven't announced even a release window. Afraid they will be cutting it a bit close from announcement till release anet typically doesn't have long if any public betas

    Kind of afraid their advertising window will be too short unless they drop a street date within march

    They don't want to be like other /rushed/ mmo's and release it to early and have problems with it. I'm sure many of us can bring up similar experiences with games.

    They just want to release the best they can give us at release, which I applaud them for. And it doesn't seem that NCSoft is rushing them either, which is another +.

    You still need to balance marketing

    They could always advertise the game without a release date, then when they decide they can update their commercials? D:
