Have either of you tried the EU version?

No I haven't. I was under the impression that it simply will not work for NA? Am I to believe this is wrong? I read something on the NA forums over there about it earlier.

From my understanding much more friendlier and its action, twitch based combat.

@Kasen This game is nothing like EVE, other than it is in space.

For anyone that was wondering what BP is like think of the old wing commander games from the early 90's.

@Fakeassname

for the record you will need to DL a -new- client for the US closed beta despite the fact that all that is different is the itty bitty file that says "use these servers over here instead of those over there".

sucks ... oh well.

Just play EU version get someone in the UK to make an account or just use a web proxy. The client and servers are not IP blocked just the account creation they did this so beta testers from NA could still play the game.

This is an all-PvP game, isn't it?

No, it is a mix of PvE and PvP - but PvP is a singificant part of it.

I really have been wanting to try this..I have heard it has a lot of EvE feel withoutt the slide rule spreadsheet thing.

I don't understand why they need a beta in NA if it's already launched in EU? What do they need to test that hasn't already been covered by a live game launch?

Could be that they are using another (NA-based) datacenter. Bringing up secondary sites always presents tech challenges and exposes new issues.
