    "There seems to be some confusion about PS1 Vets and the PS2 Beta. Let me clear it up once and for all. There are going to be multiple phases of the beta. Simply put we are adding more people in different waves simply due to capacity. Every single PS1 player who has ever subscribed to the game will have their Station Account activated at some point during the beta beginning with people who actively are subscribers. Again though we can only let in so many people during each phase so invitations. However current subs are in the front of the line for that. In addition we have Priority beta keys given out they will be let in in the early phases as well. For people that ask me "I played from 2005-2007 am I in soon?" the answer is you will be in an early phase.

    This is all going to be a moot point here soon as we just open the beta and start letting people in. I hope this helps. I do apologize if it wasn't clearer sooner. This whole thing has an insane number of moving parts.

    Here are just a few examples of those parts. Status of the build. Number of Beta servers in our multiple data centers worldwide the amount of time it takes to deploy a build (7 gig copied to EU data center is NOT immediate despite some "experts" telling me otherwise people's health (the team is pulling insane hours right now). Bugs. Bugs. More bugs. And as that old saying goes.. the best laid battle plans go out the window the second the fight starts there are days where we can't fix a critical bug in time to light the servers up on time so they are lit up late we've launched 11 MMOs. Our deployment systems are world class but these are complicated beasties.
    .... ok... think he finished..... Prays he has.

    To clarify....

    John Smedley‏@j_smedley

    @CDLHamma seriously the parsing is amazing. It's simple - active subs > anytime subbed > priority keys > normal signups


    PCG readers are 3rd phase by the look of it.

    Beta likely going to start Friday or Monday.

    Had planned for today or tomorrow but we have some stuff we need to make sure is awesome

    the team is working like crazy but we need to polish some stuff and test it before we let in a massive # of people.

    Thanks for the update Olgit.

    Thought you deserved the reply given the lack of activity in here.

    As a (albeit lapsed) vet im looking forward to getting into this as soon as possible!

    sweet, i subbed yesterday and am having good fun even though there are hardly any players !

    highlight was 3 full galaxies full of us guys, including 6 MAX units, all warping and dropping into a controlled base (all of us with only knifes out) just to look for one dude. He was a cloaker and it took us about 5 minutes of cat and mouse to uncover the bastard! hah!

    yeah, im playing TR (first thing I said when I entered the game, after playing around for 5 minutes was "i have no f'ing clue what im doing"...

    luckily there was some leader from an outfit in my vicinity who run a 380 strong outfit and took some time to show me the basics.

    I cant seem to kill anyone though :P
