It's funny to see how many people are online now. They are checking each post time stamp to see if they to haven't gotten their key yet either. I mean it's not like I'm doing that right now or anything >.>
Ikr? must have hit the refresh in my email atleast 50 times this hour. The "Beta starting in a few hours. No specific time. Hang in there, guys!" is both reassuring and anxiety building.

Argh my poor heart.

We're triple checking some legalese stuff with our battle lawyer, as well as tackling some eleventh hour issue with spectating that appeared JUST LAST NIGHT for every tester out of the blue, without any changes or for any discernible reason. Might have to disable spectating in vanilla lobby for the first day or so. We'll let you know.

Barring apocalypse tier catastrophes, Beta'll be up in a few hours, and start time shouldn't bleed into Friday PT. Maybe. It'll be late on the day, though.

I am not worried about the timing, its like music; First you got us interested and on the dancefloor, now we are just waiting for the BASS/game to drop and we will lose our minds and dance to your creation.

I assume it will be sent to everyone's emails. I have mine set to my phone so it beeps when the key comes in.
Same, I also will know via my phone, I'll be ready for it, the wait is making me ache but it will be worth it.

I'm worried because I've got my emails, ancient things they are, through Micro$oft, so I may have an additional level of wait time. o_O

You and me both. I just picked up a used 360 controller on the way back from work. This is so exciting. Also, the beta is only going to have people who supported (at a fairly significant level) M6 from the beginning. So cool.

I'm not going to hang around, hoping it will appear in the next minute or so. No, I'm going to read. I'll probably come back in an hour or so, and if it's not in, I guess I won't be playing today, it'll have to wait until I get back from work tomorrow. C'est la vie, non?

I am really glad that you tell us about those changes, even if they are near the beta release time, and the fact you are still making sure it goes as smooth as possible even now. This is a level of attention and care that I do appreciate, and makes me want to play your game even more, knowing it will be quality content right from the start! :)

Do you have communal internet? Like, you share it with a building or something? If so, than chances are something else is powering down on a timer, and the router or modem is connected to it.

It could even be an outlet. We have an outlet here that, for whatever reason, is connected to a wall switch. Flick the wall switch, out goes the wall socket.

Not yet no. I was just saying eveyone is watching the posts and waiting for the moment people are getting keys.
Ah, I see... I'm wondering if I should stay up, even though I have my math exam tomorrow, or to go to bed and get up in a few hours...

You should get some sleep. The beta might not even show till Friday. The game will still be there when you wake up.

They stated the start time shouldn't bleed into Friday PT, maybe, I agree with you though, sleep is important, especially for a exam.
Yes, it shouldn't bleed into Friday but preparing for the worst and hoping for the best is probably best when you have exams.
