Closed Beta is here. I just got into aeria even though I made an account at the beggining of last year so I didn't get invited to anything
but i've been so active in the forums, website, and my new LO guild that it's crazy!
It's Alpha 2 right now, not CB. CBT won't be starting for a bit, but many, many more people will be getting into that.
Anyways, the invites weren't based off of forum participation, I believe it was chosen randomly from those who signed up for beta. (Besides the ones who were in first alpha and won an invite from FB.)
If invites were based off participation on the forums, I would've more than likely got an invite on this account instead of my other Aeria account that only has 20 forum posts in EE and in nothing else, lol.
