Figured I would share.
Ruski page only gives me this:
PlanetSide 2

Вы уже подписаны на участие в программе тестирования бета-версии игры PlanetSide 2. Если с момента вашего последнего входа ваш адрес электронной почты был изменен, обновите информацию о нем на странице Управление аккаунтом, с тем, чтобы получать от нас самую последнюю информацию о программе тестирования бета-версии, включая информацию о том, как приступить к тестированию в случае выбора вашей кандидатуры.

Надеемся вскоре увидеть вас в игре, солдат!
--------------------------------------------------
In short:
You already signed up for participating in beta. If any changes were made to your e-mail, go to user cp and correct the information there, so you can get the latest info and howto on joining beta if you are selected.

We hope to see you in the game soon, soldier!

No buttons, nothing. User CP doesn't give anything of that sort too.

RadarX.

Do you mind letting the Planetside 1 Vet's in this thread know if they are still priority for beta or not?.

As the new Beta letter mention's current planetside player's and NOT vet's.

thanks

Radar, Why not give a very small free trial to those who hadn't subscribed? Just one day, that's all I ask. Also this is the third time I ask this since my posts just go away, my processor isn't on the list. What do I do?( Phenom II X3 710)

Can you RadarX confirm if PS1 30 days free starts Today 26th June? Or 1st of July?

I can't remember ever seeing a company provide a specific Beta date (if it happens it must be rare). They do announce they are entering closed Beta (and that's effectively what we are doing today) but NDA's and dates are never made public.

I wish we could provide you more, but that's just not how game Betas are done unfortunately.

Nothing at all has changed regarding PlanetSide 1 veterans. Everything you have been told previously is still true.

You know what would be nice?
If you let everyone who has signed up for Beta and/or has a key into Planetside for 30 days, not just vets.

That might help mask the disappointment of this pseudo beta announcement.

Oh well, the waiting game continues...

This just isn't something we are able to do. Unfortunately this is not as easy as flipping a switch even if it seems like it should be.

I can confirm what the letter stated which is this week. They are in the process of doing whatever black magic needs to be done right now so you guys can play this weekend. We can't give you an exact time or date just yet.

You heard it here first folks. As official as it will ever get, they are entering closed beta. So starting today, it's possible (although not confirmed) that players may be starting to be trickled in. It's possible it may still not happen for a few weeks, but it may be happening already.

The only date I'm really concerned about right now is when those 30 free days kick in I may have to resubscribe anyways, unless it's going to activate sometime today. Getting itchy to play some more.

Oh okay, awesome. Thanks for the semi-clarification. Sometimes it's enough just to know that you guys aren't entirely sure yet.

Can you please clarify -- my impression is that you are in Internal Beta as of now and the next phase is testing the servers before the external beta.

External beta = closed beta ?

Or am I reading this wrong?

So who gets into the 'internal tech test'? Just random people based on that PS2 beta survey thats been put up? Shouldn't you ask more specifically what graphics cards people have? I mean 400 series... it tells you very little other than the DX feature it supports. A 250 is still better than a 420 for instance.. ?

Perhaps a specific date wasn't expected. But this says nothing other than the cycles. You could at least be a bit vague about it but clarify how much time you expect there to be between each phase. Like, when do you expect the Tech Test to start (couple or some weeks from now, couple or some months, etc.) and how long after that you expect the external beta to start, if all goes as planned?

Ehh... they started internal closed beta, as they call it (sounds like alpha to me...), which is with their team (and I guess those outfits that got invited). Then there's the tech test, which sounds like it will be with a bunch of randomly invited people based on specs. And then there's closed beta as the rest of the universe knows it, where us vets and those who signed up actually get a chance of being invited...
