European Beta Testing Starts

Published by under beta testing on Sep. 29. 2011.

September was not a particularly good month for beta testing of The Old Republic. There were problems with executing the planned Beta Weekends and there was considerable downtime because a new build was being prepared for testing. This caused even further delays to larger scale European testing. With only 1 and a half days left unti lthe end of September we get news that will probably make up for all the misses that happened this month. Chris Collins, the recently employed European community manager, posted on the official forums that a batch of invites has been sent out today to EU players. Here’s a snippet:

Today, we’re excited to announce that we are sending out a batch of invites! In particular, this initial batch marks the start of a series of invites to our larger European player base, who get the chance to join the Star Wars: The Old Republic Game Testing program and provide feedback during the months up until launch.

To further the excitement it seems that tomorrow we might get even more news about the upcoming beta weekends and testing in general. Everyone is hoping that his means an all out widening of the beta testing program so that a lot more people get to experience SWTOR before launch (and help splash those nasty bugs). This was hinted at in Chris’ forum post, but also, Stephen Reid tweeted the following:

We sent both NA and EU invites in the last 48 hours. More news on testing is coming tomorrow.

Considering all of the above I think tomorrow’s update will not be disappointing.

    Same here, Drakai88. Now is down because of “unusually high traffic”. When I got the email I logged into my account to see if there was a download link. However nothing pertaining to a beta or client download was anywhere to be seen. Hopefully that’s only because the site crashed 5 minutes later haha.

    I have been lurking the forums and found this interesting. As like u my hearts ( it takes mire than one to move a Toydarian around) skipped a few beats to then head to the site for down message.
    Nicer way to manage traffic right?
