I looked up the info on copyright.gov and found this under what is not copyrightable. Of course this is US copyright law and I am not certain on DeltaTriads area of origin.

I have fond memories of logging into the PS1 test server and having mini events while helping the devs with the upcoming patches.

Unless there are a great many (tens of thousands, even 100,000+) testers in closed beta SOE will want to open it up to assure their servers can handle the load.

Would definitely be cool and interesting. And it does make a lot of sense for a shooter especially.

It's nice to let everyone try new balance fixes and ideas out before forcing them on people. It allows us to see "what if" and help the devs know if they are headed in the right direction.

TF2 had a separate "TF2 Beta" sister program on Steam. You had to download the entire game again but it let Valve test out new weapons and changes without affecting the main game.

Like other people have said, other MMOs have this feature too. Is it needed? Probably not. The beta test will no doubt iron out all the bugs. Is it nice to have? Yes it is.

It would be for future updates not launch. It's like having a "beta" server for future additions and changes. I just think it's a great way to make sure adjustments and additions are sitting well with players before they are forced on us.
