I always thought Open Beta is for the final stress test with limited content and the finishing touch to find any remaining errors they might of left out. Though these days many treat any sort of beta they can access easily as a complete product so it's slowly losing its meaning.

    This is what I thought the meaning of the phase's of betas is; Alpha - Closer to raw product of the game testing the basic mechanic's, bugs, and seek flaws of the game. Closed Beta - Closer to finish product, expected to mainly find bugs, exploits, things that might of been left out, and partially stress test the servers as it enter final phase of close beta. Open Beta - Pretty much finish product, mainly used for stress testing the servers and pick up any flaws that might cause problems for official launch. I'm probably wrong though.
    It is pretty common now days for OB to not wipe so it's not wrong for you to start presuming this will always be the case.

    If I had to make the best guess I could give, companies labeling their launch as OB(which would normally be the free sign-up and login on a smaller server to stress test) is to avoid confusion amongst players when some bugs still persist or pop up because bugs are like that, stubborn.

    My take on it is that it is done when a game is still being developed and having changes made to it. Apparently though this whole pay for alpha (someone said it was $120 to enter the Russia alpha), closed beta and then open beta before release thing is what XL Games (developer) does.

    Taken from wikipedia,
    Initial development of ArcheAge began in 2011, and closed testing of the game took place over two years. Before finally being released in Korea on January 15, 2013, the game went through five closed beta tests and one open beta test.

    Again I'm not telling people how to spend their money, just saying that I find their spending odd. At least when it's as big of a sum as 150USD.
    It's just like P2P games where you can pay for 3months, 6mo, or a full year in advance. If anyone wanna get quite serious in this game, or can totally see themselves still playing it actively in 3 months, then $150 is a pretty dang good investment. Especially if you want to own a powerful guild and such.

    Il wait for the full release and when that happens il wait another 2 weeks till the starting areas are full empty , i can hardly kill anything now and i doubt il even be able to in these few days of beta , too many players , nothing to kill , everything dies in one second ...
    Back to D3 until i get FFXIV

    i get 60 fps here but the game still freezes/crashes when i take screenshots ...
