Hi This was the fist time I have been ina bata test. I am guessing close bata is only a few people and open bata is everyone? So I have a few noob questions.
Do the people who participate in close bata get anything like to keep their character name or a special mount on anything cool?
Is there any clue as to how long the average game takes from closed bata to open bata?
Do companies notify the close bata testers in advance before starting open bata? How do we know when it starts? Do we get an email of just have to check everyday?
So what is open bata? Sorry it is a total NOOB question but I really don't understand the difference between open and closed bata as this is the first time I have done this.
Finally what happens at the end of open bata and how long does it normally take?
Ok no more noob stuff from me for the moment.
If you had a Lv30 Character in Closed Beta, you receive a Pet for lifetime (I was told so).
Yes, everything is wiped, so you lose all your Characters.
Yes, GMs will announce the Open Beta here on the Forums.
The difference between Open and Closed Beta is that Open, obviously, is open for everyone, while only people with Beta Keys could attend the Closed Beta.
I hope I answered all of your questions.
