    I have some interesting news guys. Trion isn't considering open beta the actual launch date and will wipe after open beta. There is literally no reason to play until launch, which doesn't have a set date.

    In any case, if you want to play the game you are better off playing the RU version because the NA isn't actually being 'launched' for quite some time.



    Trion's naming scheme;

    Closed beta is called Alpha
    Stress tests are called Closed Beta 'Events' & Open Beta

    We are getting excited for no reason.
    So no open beta? just closed beta then wipe then launch? if its coming out in September then yeah might as well wait.

    No, they're going to wipe after closed beta AND open beta because they don't consider open beta to be the launch of the game. Open beta itself, which isn't launch, still doesn't have a set date. We are still very far from being able to play without fear of wipes.

    Also since open beta never needs keys this whole closed beta is literally just stress testing the servers.

    That's confusing, let me sum it up and tell me if it's right or wrong.

    Closed Beta -> Wipe -> Open Beta -> Wipe -> Launch

    Correct ?

    Yes. Scapes the PR for Trion said that on the forums.

    It also just dawned on me that since closed beta phases are just stress tests and the founder packs that give beta access are for those phases they actually got people to pay for stress testing the servers.

    That is confusing most publishers don't wipe open beta data's. So stress test, stress test, stress test, and open beta (more stress test). What's the point of open beta then?

    No idea, but it's a good way to kill a game. At the game's peak they're going to wipe everything and make people start over again.

    I am impressed that I haven't gotten banned yet on their forums though.

    It would be awesome if it was closed beta without week events, you still require a purchase to play it without needing to wait for the events, and for the price they are selling the game im going to wait for the events.
