Then you play open beta, or full release if you're away for that long. Your invite won't go anywhere while you're gone.

Also, open beta within a fewe weeks after closed? err, not gonna happen. There is a ton of stuff that needs to be tested and may needs to be changed, or the game becomes just a big BF3 map. Gotta need a few month to get enough certs into commanding, and figure out how different 666 vs 666 vs 666 is compared to 133 vs 133 vs 133. If they dont let us enough time there, they propably ruin themself.
Some betas allow you to give yourself xp and points to test.

Likewise, they also need to test the rate at which people earn resources to find a good level where people don't feel it's TOO grindy, but are inclined towards purchasing boosts.

For the most part. The point of having a beta is for players to help the devs work out all the bugs they missed in testing, because players are sneaky and will find ways to do things they weren't supposed to be able to do.
There isn't a phase between beta and release, if that's what you're asking.

It would definitely be cool if they made the original Planetside FTP while we wait for beta.

BTW I _really_ hope we get to download the client a day or a couple of days in advance before the beta starts... I'd HATE to have to sit there and watch the download slowly complete the day beta starts.. I only have 8/1mb interwebs + I'd imagine the download servers would be under heavy traffic.

edit: someone should probably tweet them about this is this hasn't been brought up // confirmed? :b

I'd wager that they will reset all stats after beta.

Cheers,

So I have an active Planetside account now that I was able to re-activate with that 45 days that they gave accounts for the hack.

I've never actually spent a penny on a Planetside subscription because I was in the middle of college when the game was at it's peak.

Because I have an active Planetside account now, are my chances of getting into the beta as good as any former vet? I've had the account for 5 years now and I played it a lot when they were doing that free trial years ago.

Depending on how much I play in the next 2 months, I may just sub until Planetside 2 comes out. I think I will appreciate PS2 a lot more this way.

Mostly wishful thinking, but I hope that as early as next week, we will be getting priority tester invites out, and limited closed beta (Certain days and times).

Next month, they will open up things more with a 24/7 beta client running, and start accepting beta testers with "general" keys.

I think I read somewhere that you had to have/have had an active ps1 account prior to June to be considered a vet. I may of course be wrong.
