    Oh dear God, please Carbine, don't do this. It has bee fiasco is so many other games. other companies do it to generate buzz, I don't think carbine needs to do it Wildstar.

    Over at Wildstar Fans they say that Carbine will make an offical announcement when the closed beta goes live, has anyone seen such an announcement stating it in cold hard fact?

    Exactly what I was thinking. If it where an alpha test they would want it to be quiet but Betas tend to include a bit of publicity with them.

    No Beta yet. Carbine will be announcing when Closed Beta begins.

    Mike D posts the Fortune Cookie post on Facebook, without telling anyone else. Everyone at Carbines beats him with a sack full of oranges.

    how I imagine this all going down

    Might be a good idea for one of our lovely mods to make a sticky in the vein of "Post here if you got into beta" to stop the insane amount of new 'I got into beta' threads when/if it's announced today. Said post can be promptly deleted if Carbine ask us not to disclose who got in.

    I would be surprised if Carbine's NDA won't even let the invited, say so. I don't recall a Closed Beta, offhand, that was that tight. I'm expecting more the "all I can say is that there is a Beta and I am in it," variety.

    Totally torn about this - on one hand I'd love to test and give feedback, etc (not to mention to be able to see it right now!).

    The flip side to testing is that it can take the shine off of the game at launch. By the time the few games that I tested for a long period of time (SWTOR in particular) went live I was already burnt on them and didn't play for long. Now, that may very well be a result of those games not being particularly good and they were never going to be a long term destination.

    Anyway, good luck to everyone and if you do manage to get in give them lots of feedback!
