    Omg ... that video of yours is awesome! Make more! Make more! :D

    Ow yeah beta. Q2. They already hinted it was early 2013 for closed beta to start. But like any other game it gets postponed (Noooooo), so that makes it Q2.

    Heh. I'm practically bouncing off the walls here. I too think 2nd or 3rd quarter 2013, with a possibly release in the 1st quarter 2014, if not 4th quarter 2013... All supposition though. :(

    I know this is going to sound blasphemous, but I would rather Beta never start if they get everything right. NCSoft has shown with GW2 that they're willing to give the developer enough time to get things right so I hope they do the same with WildStar. I want Beta to start, but I also wouldn't mind they suddenly announce that there is no Beta and the game is being released at a certain date. Mysterious game is mysterious.

    I just guessed 3rd quarter due to delays. I actually think it will be 2nd quarter but fudged it cause I think there are always unexpected complications.

    Awesome video Maddog!

    I can't see the video sorry Maddog. Dunno why Chrome doesn't want me to.
    I think the beta might be around end Q2 with delay Q3. Well I'm not that impatient they can take their time all the time they want (As long as the job is done and they give us one hell of a beta and then onehell of a game) I'll play my ASC games/Borderland2/Dishonored and all the rest in the meantime.:)

    Sorry Maddog can't see the video. Don't know why Chrome doesn't let me (sigh).

    For the Beta well I'm generally impatient with everything (rofl) but not that much this time they can take their time as long as they give us one hell of a Beta (and then game) I'm good with that.I'd say end Q2 (my wish) but agree with Dyraele there is always delays in making games thus Around Q3 may be a more realistic answer.

    There always seems to be a delay for one reason or another.... My guess is Q2.

    LOL thanks all, I appreciate the feedback, Im a complete amateur at this kinda stuff but was fun to put together.
    Sorry WildZhen its Mp4 Microsoft format, they still own the net (well during the weekdays anyway LOL) I just dont want Google knowing that much about me........ Im off to refuel my generator now, stock up on firewood for the winter, load some 30-06 cartridges, read the latest issue of Backwoods Prepper and check the perimeter of my bunker is secure ! :)

    Q1 would be very nice. But i think Q2 is a bit more realistic.

    I see no reason why closed Beta shouldn't start this year and slowly expand throughout Q1 and Q2 of 2013.

    from what i've heard mentioned about the current friends and family beta they are running, it never sounded like invites would start that far away.

    I keep sending presents to Scooter hoping I can become a "friend" though :)

    awww c'mon guys they can get it to us by christmas!!!!! or like tomorrow really I just want to know if I will be able to participate in the beta, I don't really care when it comes out, it sure would be nice if they would at least say hey you're in! I would also like some news on their projected business model as I'm praying for a B2P, mainly because I think this games release and perfectworld's Neverwinter MMO that comes out next year might be enough to bring down the WOW giant. I loved Cata but MOP destroyed it.
