    Evidentally there is still an NDA (this late into the development cycle) so anyone who DIDN'T get a beta invite should say so, so we can conclude the number that didn't get in :S

    I can confirm Australians are in the beta >.>. I will refuse to give any more information. I will prove to a mod if needed there are Australians in the beta if needed.

    *sigh* no invite for myself or the wife.

    I think I'll have to organize some "away from computer" time that weekend instead so I'm not reminded. :p

    I wonder how many people they took, must be quite a few considering theres already 3 confirmed just from ocau that are in the beta. I really didnt think any aussies would get the nod for the first round.

    There was a ANet rep or dev that mentioned "tens of thousands" being required for the next beta. If you assume 20K testers and the 1 million sign up, your chance was about 2%. :)

    Didn't Anet mention that the invites would be sent over the next FEW days... not being in the first wave of emails doesn't mean you've missed out quite yet... hope springs eternal!

    The first email was a "congrats you have been chosen, enter some details" email then "we will send you info regarding the beta in the next few days" so maybe thats what they are referring to.

    Posted on GW2 Facebook page yesterday "Yes, beta invitations have begun going out. They'll be sent out over the next few days. Please remember that discussing the beta in any way, shape, or form -- including your status in it -- is a breach of NDA. Don't risk your beta access!"

    Next few days... of constantly checking for new emails!

    Just incase it hasn't been posted yet - gives you a great insight into how big the game world actually is.

    Unfortunately no beta invite for me :( le sigh.

    The information I have seems to match this - the locked closed beta is 99% likely to be a 24/7 delio for content testing and feedback, as well as things like pvp balancing, pve raid content testing and long term server population (as in, longer than 2 days). Beta Weekends will exist to let in a larger number of players in for stress testing and events.

    Guys - It's probably worth not posting that you didn't get in, since people who actually did can't say, so we'd just have a thread full of "Nopes :(". Just keep the discussion focused on game impressions, opinions, and other standard stuff. There are (and will be) tons of previews and beta impressions on the way, so lots more information will become available.

    I know quite a few in my guild got in based on their not too subtle hints. ~15% of members that applied. Filling in the guild name and guild website paid off.
