    If GWI has an invite, Wartower better have one.
    And Wartower having one is a very good thing.

    It could mean:

    a) Players get to play along with press
    b) The beta Anet was talking about was for press but didn't bother to tell us
    c) We get a beta the 30th
    d) Our beta starts late April

    It's going to piss a lot of people off if the sign up was for nothing, Seeing as April 10th people will be able to pretty much get into the beta if they pre purchase.

    Its also a pre purchase, meaning you can cancel it after beta and didn't pay a cent :/

    It looks like the public might be invited into this beta but there obviously not allowed to say anything. Only the media is allowed. I Hope this is the case.

    Another one? How much hype do they want to build?

    I agree completely. If they don't reward he people that signed up before they announced the pre order then that will be a big mistake. Lets hope arena net knows better.

    Geez guys do you never read the tweets.

    Their Will be a closed beta for a portion of those million that signed up at the end of march. That may or may not be the same beta the press have access to. Remember Press could be under a seperate NDA from the rest of the players as their are friends and family + closed beta testers already that have played in all beta and havent been able to talk about it.

    Next Their will be a closed beta test at the end of next month where if you pre-purchase GW2 you Will have access to.

    They've already confirmed the public will be in a closed beta by the end of March. It will either be the same beta as the press, or shortly after it.

    Hi folks, just to confirm, the sign ups last week are for a chance at the next (end of march) and following beta events for #GuildWars2 ~AT

    pre-PURCHASE. You pay for the game now and get it later. Thats different than pre-ORDER where you simply order the game and dont pay for it until you recieve it.

    I wish it was this weekend, Every time they say something is going to happen it's weeks away and each and every day leading up to that date seems to go slower lol.

    Isnt the whole pre purchase / pro order difference the fact that with pre purchase you cant get your money back?
    Hence pre orders only coming with 1 day early acces.

    I dont have a twitter account either but when your following a game that rarely breaks information on their main sites it takes like 2 secs to google gw2 twitter and to see what they are talking about.
