TOR Opens The Door For Beta Signups

I’m sure nobody else will post this today, so I guess it’s up to me: Star Wars TOR has officially announced beta signups, and you can go here to throw your name into the hat to be a tester.  There’s also a vague FAQ thing that tells you more or less what you could’ve figured out without it.

So am I going to sign up?  Hm.  I’m actually leaning toward “no”.  I mean, it’s all exciting and whatnot to get into any beta, but that comes with a lot of baggage as well — having your opinion of the game diminished by beta bugs, “spoiling” the launch experience, and spending time with characters you won’t get to keep.  Then again, curiosity is near-irresistable!

    I think you broke the beta thingy. It says now the entire website is on maintenance.

    I vote NO too. I want this game to be as exciting as the day I unwrapped SWG on launch day. I hope it cones out next year.

    I simply can’t resist to such a spoiler ! And love to help devs get the best game possible…

    Yeah, I’m with you on this one. I think I want to stay away from betas and just enjoy these games when they come out.

    Syp slashdotted the TOR beta signup! If only he hadn’t said anything, their servers would have been fine, but he had to go and open the floodgates!

    Thanks a lot, Syp!
