    When do Beta Events begin?

    Hey, I just brought the game and it says I get Beta access guaranteed with pre-purchasing the game. All it says is Beta weekend events and its the weekend now but does it mean all weekends or one every month or so at a time? At the moment it appears there is no event and does not say anywhere when or what time etc.

    Anyone know?

    We already had 2 BWE previously! And 2 stress tests, with a few hours of duration!

    The next BWE will be set on 20-22 of july, if I'm not mistaken!

    sorry for the bad english!

    no Pab mentions stickies with TITLES indicating the dates of release and beta weekend. people may not read stickies. But they MIGHT see the titles of the stickies.

    Thanks for the replies. I still think its worth me paying for it early since I do not loose anything from it and gain 3 days head start + the earlier beta test on the 20th - 22nd. Thanks for your help!

    If those times are correct the start date for Europe is pretty bad. I hope Guild Wars 2 won't be another SWTOR... as in "We're American, fuck Europe".

    It starts and ends at the same time in NA and EU. Regardless of times, it's just a beta weekend. Considering you won't have to worry about maintenance. If there's a patch, it tells you to re-open your client, it updates, and you get back to playing.

    Their main fanbase is in Europe. They stated this in a video a while back. I'm sure they won't forget us when release comes around and we'll see some kind of release plan at some point after the next BWE.
    But for the BWE, the times are irrelevant really
