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


So basically announced the closed beta, have fun first platoon guys enjoy your time in there. Can't wait to shoot you when or if I get in before release.

seems so, they did a poor job with the beta keys

Too bad we can't download yet. I would love to be playing PS1 tonight.

However, Radar's posts are more specific... and contradictory to the official letter.
Could you elaborate?

Well
External Beta will include primary rounds of entry for existing PlanetSide 1 players and additional External Beta registrants, including those who obtained Beta codes from the PC Gamer magazine cover feature.

For those of you waiting on your time grants, we've confirmed that these should be done by 11:59 PM on June 27th (PST). This should give you plenty of time to get in for the weekend.

I love you Radar, if you're ever in Arkansas I will buy you a beer and some BBQ.

They did a great job with the keys, if you know what you are getting into.
The priority structure is as follows:

1) Planetside 1 vets // PC Gamer beta key holders
2) Those with a Twitter/Facebook/whatever Beta Key holders
3) Everyone else without a key and clicked 'sign up for beta.'


You are #2 in the priority list, ahead of the masses.

First off, happy about the announcement, this week (late) at best.
Next week (early) at worst.

Fine.

However, this talk about game companies never releasing beta dates, schedules, or how many people were let in, is total, T.O.T.A.L. bollocks.

The only rare bit of information would be the exact number of participants.
"This many invites were sent out this week" "This is how many we'll send out next, depending on 'x'" is common enough.

Walk about 5 yards into the internet and you'll see that ANYONE else takes dates and 'soon' seriously, yet around here it seems to be some kind of joke.

Sorry for being the odd man out.

I know I said that was last post. I guess I was lying.
Radar, do you have any information on which specs will be able to play the game? I mean would people with low end machines have to wait a bit or will it come out ready for most PCs?

Wow people are rabid for this beta!

I hope the devs don't take all the bad posts to heart. Remember it is a privelege not a right to be in the beta at all. To SOE: I hope you know that for every negative poster on here there are 10 more watching intently, patiently waiting, and eager to try out the game.

Contradictory was the wrong word to use - my apologies. However, you say 'entering' closed beta. But we all know that the internal closed beta has been going on for a bit now... so what do you mean by 'entering' closed beta?

The announcement said this:

Our next step is a Technical Test Phase that will include testing our servers, concurrent players and further optimizations of both our client and our server.
