If you get into the beta, will you have to buy the game when it comes out, or will you be able to continue using the same account you use for Beta? also, do you get any reward for playing in the beta?

1. Nope.. you still have to buy the game. a nit cheap aint it,... getting into beta almost free.. and then you wont have to buy the game? that wont earn them anything

2. Isnt being in the beta reward enough? it would for me.No .. the only reward is getting to play the game before most of us.

ok? :D

Beta 3 will be accepting upto 50,000 players, imagine giving out free accounts to them. A loss of a large amount $$$

Think of beta like this,

Getting to play the game early.
Getting to play the game for free.
Getting to play the game and see if you like it before you buy it.
Getting to tease other people that are not in Beta.
Getting to learn the game and feel comfortable with it before launch - so you get the best start.

ooo, that is cheap, and thats why most people want to get in beta, cause they think the account they have in it will work and they dont have to pay $$$

The educated few of us know that though, but a LOT of people don't, not naming any names. ;)

Why'd you look at me when you said that?!? :mad:

04-15-2003, 11:15 AM
You know damn well why :p

04-15-2003, 11:24 AM
Also you don't get to tease your mate's as your not aloud to discuss the beta with anyone until sony say's further more :p

04-15-2003, 02:23 PM
its called NPD right? i just have to refresh my memory

04-15-2003, 02:50 PM

It's NDA actually, and I can't remember what it stands for. Something something Agreement.

04-15-2003, 03:41 PM
Non-Disclosure Agreement, I believe. Pretty much saying "Don't talk about it."

04-15-2003, 03:57 PM
when do you think the NDA will be lifted?

when do you think the release date will be?

04-15-2003, 07:05 PM
The very day (no joke) that people stop asking. ;)

04-15-2003, 07:22 PM
hmm, thats not a very good estimate, im going to keep asking questions if you dont try to "calculate" a response that makes sense :D

How exactly does SOE find out I have been blabbing about Beta? Will they have a satelite dedicated to JUST me? Because then I would feel very special. That warm feeling inside when you know you are loved... Wait... How does it feel again?

I tell Generic Human #1768772356 ALL about beta and they tell a bunch of people... How would these people be related enough to SOE to trace it back to me?

04-16-2003, 10:06 PM
the SUPER SATALITE, no i think if you tell people it just evenually spreads the news and WHAM! your in trouble

I can imagine it now: SOE goons walk into the room, "Whose been breakin' da NDA an' whatnot?"
*Everyone stops and points to me...*
*Satelite falls from space and crashes in the background.*

There's also people who actually respects the NDA even though their not part of Beta, and feels you haven't deserved to be in Beta if you can't respect the NDA, and report you. :)

Then there are those who are in Beta and do respect the NDA also, and report you. ;)

04-17-2003, 01:36 PM
aka: get in beta + tell everyone what you did x breaking NDA - lying = LAW SUIT

04-17-2003, 03:31 PM
The fact that I read through an entire thread that has the title of "Woot" really hurts my head!

Who want's to start a pool on release date?

I say June 17th, two months from now.

04-17-2003, 03:36 PM
i say May 17, 1 month from now... :)

04-17-2003, 03:38 PM

Well if I told my friends all about Beta, they would...

A.) Shrug, and talk about Diablo 2.

B.) Ask what the Hell I am smoking and WHAT is SWG? (My friends being mostly girls on a 5:1 ratio... had not noticed this until one of them made the comment of: "Hey, look at your odds... 12 to 1. They love you..." Then she laughed at me and told me to go make some guy friends. :D ;) :p

C.) Yeah... Beta is nice. "My name is Ray Nickel and I love Anarchy Online because I have no clue what Diablo 2 is all about... You stupids." -indescernable comment- "Shut up, Ben! You too, Eric."

D.) Go back to talking about Warhammer, which I do not like.

04-17-2003, 09:46 PM
how many people DO know about SWG? 500,000? 750,000? give an estimate

Sunshine Badass
04-17-2003, 11:29 PM
At my school, Heritage, I would estimate that less than 100 people out of 2000 students know ANYTHING about SWG.

04-18-2003, 03:36 AM
Lol you live in a ghost town or something dude :p

04-18-2003, 07:46 AM
Yeah, to quote Darling (a swedish alternative girl magazine):

"Star Wars: the only thing that can make every male act 10-20 years younger, and also the only thing that can make a man spend hundreds of dollars on plastic toys."

Here, everyone has at least seen the movies.

04-18-2003, 09:06 AM
Lol you live in a ghost town or something dude

I have about 720 kids in my school :). And that's from about 4 different towns in my area.

The bad part is, they all want to come to my house for LAN parties, and my house for Vampire and other White Wolf games, and my house for D&D, and my house... You get the picture.

04-18-2003, 10:33 AM
i estimate 5 out of 900 students at my school know about SWG

04-18-2003, 11:33 AM
Half the people in my school (literally) haven't even seen A, ONE, SINGULAR, Star Wars movie. Basically, when I say something that anyone would know if they've seen a SW movie, they just call me a SW Freak.

Funny thing is though: Heritage is one of the better top schools in the country, but EVERYONE is a stoner or drinks alchohol every night... Maybe not everyone, but a VERY high percentage of people at Heritage are dockers.:( :( :(

04-19-2003, 02:16 AM
ok so what normal school sint like that or maybe its just because i live in skaters ville new zealand

Swediot, you are right about schools being like that. Have not heard of one that is all angelic.

What I WAS saying though, is that I do not see what makes my school better than others, except Denver Public Schools, there is something to be avoided.;) But we are a good school, but we do everything the same.

ACT's are this week, and during the introduction of "How To BS Your ACT" mandatory meeting given by our school, they tell us HOW and WHEN to fill in the little bubbles on our registry forms like we needed the instructions.:rolleyes:

Stop it, your making me feel old.:eek:
