@Fabius Bile yeah, it felt like the last Rift betas...more like a pre release trial to generate buzz.

Which is fine. The game is super polished and super fun. Can't wait!

all i can say on this is i got an invite to a weekend a few months back -----but was never e-mailed "the invite" so i missed it but i got this nice e-mail asking me how i liked playing on THAT weekend (no my acct was not hacked) and now i get another invite to this weeken and the old one is blocking the new one i guess and the old one shows "expired" and no new one to be seen -

im looking now at my per-order e-mail fo the wazzzoo deluxe ed and thinking of pulling the trigger on its cancel and no game in my many years on the net has ever pived me this much before i even got to play it!!!

@lighttech

With that attitude you are really not cut out for beta-testing anyway.

@lighttech If by "the new one" you mean the one which this piece is about, it's not active yet, so it won't show up. As for e-mails not getting through, make sure their e-mails aren't going into your spam folder.

Got my invite, but I dunno. It's such a huge download.

@JonBuck If you're on the fence about the game at all check it out. If it's already a must buy or you have it pre-ordered I'd skip it. I was on the fence but not anymore. Mission accomplished Bioware/EA.

@jimr9999us Definitely not on the fence here. Game comes out the 20th. I'm on winter break from the 21st through Jan 2...

I finally got at invite this week. As someone who didn't think the game was much more than WoW 2.0 in space I have to eat crow. The game is freaking awesome and has far exceeded my expectations!

@fdisk
Everything I've seen/read has indicated WoW in space. I have no particular interest in the game either way, so what makes it so unique?

@PhelimReagh That every single quest is fully voice acted and properly animated.

Also, every single NPC gives you 3 dialogue choices which are very different from each other; and quite often you are given a choice between an action that will align you more towards the dark or light side.

The cool thing about those is that the outcome of the quest differs depending on your choice.

You forget your are playing an MMO and it's more like you are playing a solid single player game along with your friends.

I won't go into further detail since I'd like to respect the NDA (Everything I just wrote is information found on their website itself and the many articles people have written about the game).

@fdisk So basically it's WoW 2.0 with Mass Effect multi. Good to know!

They let red-zoners into the beta?

Strange, I don't see flying pigs outside... They must be lying

Folks, PLEASE GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. This invite only opened to those with adress in the US and EU. Thank you massively for getting my hopes up and then letting me down. Hope you folks burn in a fire for making me waste my day.

Game will be dead in 3 months time as an MMORPG.

8 companions to support 10.000 people per server. Must be unique walking along with all those same companions....

really....

First they need to fux the clunky combat, then they need to fix the lack of art on the uniforms, then they need to open the world and not make it a one way train ticket to the next station.

And finally they need to fix the global cool down mechanics and avoid that terrible lag.

3 M at launch: 80% leaving after 3-4 months... and no longer willing to pay the subs.

Except for the hardcore SW fans, but the problem is the game is more like Clone Wars instead of SW anyway.

I always know it after playing a game for 15 minutes.

I was always right in the last 5 years.
