I just saw a video of this on spoonyexperiment review of PAX.
It's the review shortly after his FF14, which is not only hilarious but totally true..
Have to say, I got pumped just watching the dev discussion with spoony and gameplay introduction.
Even though I dislike MMO's because I bore easily, I can see myself forking the money for this title.
Why? Because the world doesn't wait for you, it's always "alive" and preforming many things in real time.
It's just a shame I won't be around to play it when it comes out.
We purposely didn’t use the term “Open Beta”, we mentioned Beta Events. To some people Open Beta means unlimited access to the game and everybody on the interwebs can play it. This is not what we will do.
We will do Beta Weekend Events. Those of you who played Guild Wars might already be familiar with the concept. It means that many of you (like the blogpost says) will get a chance to participate in specific Events, but access won’t be unlimited – there will be some kind of selection criteria and the beta period will usually start on a Friday and end on the following Sunday.
