As of now, the non disclosure portion of our Game Testing Agreement is officially lifted. While all players must still accept the Game Testing Agreement, from this point on testers may now freely talk about their experiences this past weekend in the game, as well as post screenshots and gameplay videos of their testing experiences. We encourage you to come join us on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic Forums to share your experiences!
The Star Wars: The Old Republic community site will have a copy of this message on the forums and it will also appear in the Patcher. Players may not talk about nor reprint posts from our testing forums as they are still fully covered by the confidentiality portions of our Game Testing Agreement. And all players who want to participate in the upcoming Beta Test Weekends still have to accept all terms of the Game Testing Agreement. So, other than that, free feel to talk about and share your experiences in Star Wars: The Old Republic.
My thanks go out to everyone who has beta tested and continues to beta test the game. It has been with your help and feedback that Star Wars: The Old Republic is where it is today. We really appreciate your efforts.
May the Force be with you!
Updated the original post with a couple of more FAQ answers from this thread.
To answer other queries: for those of you who have been emailed this afternoon, as the email says, you have been selected to test in an upcoming Beta Test Weekend (which this FAQ refers to). You will be invited - and be able to download the client - closer to the upcoming weekend.
In other words, there are two Testing Weekends currently on the calendar. This weekend (11th-13th of November) for which invites have already been sent. You can tell if you have an invite to this weekend by the fact that the email has those dates in it.
Everyone who is signed up to test is eligible for the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend, and notification on when you can download the game client will be sent closer to the weekend's start.
One of my characters is in this weekend beta.
I guess I'm a bit confused on the announcment, so forgive me if it sounds stupid.
So what this means, is if I'm already in this weekend beta, I get into next weekend, and next weekend and so on, till launch?
I understand, I won't need any further codes, as I'll take away the chance for someone else, but I'm just trying to understand the announcment is all. Thanks in advance and again, sorry if it sounds dumb.
You'll be able to play in the next Beta Test Weekend - but we haven't announced that date, yet. Whenever it is, you'll play in it. As it says in the FAQ, we're expecting this future weekend to be the last Beta Testing Weekend.
if i havent yet ever been invited to beta...will i be able to get a code for the first time these weekends?
Yes you will.
Does this announcement mean I can play Star Wars: The Old Republic this weekend?
No it does not, unless you have a previous testing invite - either to this weekend or to general Game Testing. The Beta Testing Weekend we are referring to will happen in the next few weeks.
When will the Beta Testing Weekend start?
It will happen in the next few weeks. We'll have an announcement on the exact timing closer to the weekend's start.
Will this be the final Beta Testing Weekend?
Currently, we expect it to be.
Will I be able to download the game client in advance of the weekend?
Yes, we will be sending out invites to download the game client in advance of the weekend.
I have previously tested Star Wars: The Old Republic. Will I get invited to the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend?
Yes, you will. Every person that is signed up and opted in for Game Testing before November 11th will be invited to this Beta Testing Weekend.
What if I do not live in a launch country for Star Wars: The Old Republic?
As long as you are signed up and opted in for testing, you will be invited to test.
What if I have not signed up, or opted in for testing by November 11th?
When we started our Beta Testing Weekends, we told you that each weekend would include more testers than the last. Were excited to announce that later this month we will be conducting our largest Beta Testing Weekend yet, specifically designed to help us stress test our servers in preparation for the launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic.
How can you take part in this coming Beta Test Weekend? Well, for starters we are happy to announce that anyone who has signed up for our Game Testing Program prior to today, November 11th, will get invited! Invites will be sent in the coming weeks.
Just to chime in here - this round of EU invites haven't all gone out yet, they're still sending.
Most EU testers have been france/germany only.
I'd feel quite bad if I can't get an invite from US testing, and EU testing didn't count english speaking players. I mean, where does that leave us Brits?
Actually, I want to highlight that past EU testing invite rounds have included players from all EU launch territories, not just France and Germany. Some tests have been FR/DE specific, but not all. There certainly isn't an imbalance.
Er, both? We'll be sending until late in the day here, which is later in the day in the EU.
Whenever we finish sending, we'll update this specific post with that fact. Until then, you'll still have a chance.
stephenreid, you can't even say to us about the % of europeans you are inviting? is something like 1, 2, 5%?
No, in exactly the same way we won't be drawn on general numbers.
Invites are still going out.
Over the course of today (and possibly into tomorrow) we're inviting more Game Testers from the EU than we've ever invited in a single 'wave'.
It's not the entire number we have signed up, but it's a significant proportion. There will be other invites before launch.
We've investigated this issue further overnight, and I've got an update for you. It looks like a small number of people got stuck in a unhelpful state within our database. That means the problem's on our side, not yours, so don't worry about trying different browsers or similar to fix it yourself.
Our DB team is tracking down the affected accounts and should roll out a fix later today. When that happens, you'll be able to accept the invite. We'll update this thread when the fix is applied. Thanks for your patience while we resolve this!
Just wondering if anyone else got their BetaWeekend invites but are unable to download the client? I've tried refreshing, closing and restarting my computer but always get stuck on the RSVP link to accept my Beta invitation.
We're starting the investigation into this right now. A few steps you should try just to be safe:
- Log out of your SWTOR.com account
- Completely clear your browser cache and cookies
- Try to log back in and see if you can accept the invite
You might also try the process with a different browser. If anyone finds this works for them, please do mention that in this thread.
We'll continue to investigate here, but if you are experiencing this issue and cannot resolve it, please email email@example.com and report your issue to our Customer Service team so we can judge the size of the issue.
If you are not experiencing this issue, I'd ask you not to post in this thread so we can keep the conversation focused.
We may not be able to resolve this issue tonight but we'll certainly give it a high priority to fix. Thanks for your patience.
Hey everyone. We do update this thread when we send out invitations to any part of the Game Testing Program. We'll continue inviting people, but haven't announced any kind of schedule for invites. We do plan on inviting more testers, of course, so check back to see if we've sent new invites and make sure to check your registered e-mail address regularly if you have opted-in!
Swtor.gr: Κανείς δεν θέλει να πληρώνει ένα παιχνίδι που είναι σε Beta κατάσταση.Δεν νομίζω οτι η Bioware ή η EA πρόκειται να βιαστούν να βγάλουν το παιχνίδι.
Όσο αφορά αυτά που έχουμε δεί για το Swtor , είναι αυτά που θέλουν να μας δείξουν , οπότε κανείς δεν ξέρει με σιγουριά πως θα είναι.
I guess we have to wait much longer... - If we look at the information (or better the lack of it!) concerning the game Bioware offered so far I got more and more the impression that the game won't be released in Spring 2010. It looks as if Bioware presents the most things that they have developed so far that they can be shown, that could mean that such a lot of stuff is still in a state of developing that it can't be shown.
Well it's just six month untill Spring 2010...
Well of course I do not want to play a game in Beta state (look at the MMO's of FUNCOM or Cryptic) but if I look at the information policy of Bioware it seems to me that they overvalue their capacity...
What do you mean? [Swtor.com Community]
Graphics has been improved (Gamescon 2009 to 2010) - Just watched the Gamescon 2010 Videos on Youtube and i noticed a major improvement of the Graphics. I made a comparison of the Developer Walkthrough from the Gamescon 2009 and the new Gamescon 2010 Videos.
