It looks like our guild has a chance of getting everypony invited into the beta. Wouldn't that just be so awesome? SO awesome!

That does sound good for guilds... up until you find out that tiny 10 people guilds might end up getting invites (in all fairness, I tend to expect a varied group in betas anyway). Razz

But I would imagine that the number of people being invited to beta is only going up regardless, meaning that there's always a chance at getting invited.

I expect that at least for the last phase they'll let a ton of people in for stress testing.

On a kind of related note: Is anyone in the guild in Beta besides me? I was wondering if we have enough players to set up a Beta-side guild

They did say at Comic Con that they would be doing "beta weekends" in September. Their plan is to let a ton of people into the beta, but only for a weekend. Each weekend in September will have a new, large group of people invited. This sounds like it would be the perfect opportunity to let entire guilds into the beta, as it might also give them a chance to test their guild integration system. I've got my fingers crossed!

There's a member here that is in the beta, but I don't think he is apart of the guild. Most of us here are clawing at the chance to get in still. You're also correct about the stress testing, the talked about how September they aim to stress test, and of course the guilds are prime tools.

Indeed, I'm hoping that we'll get a seat, or I get a beta invite at PAX from one of the two BioWare panels. I'll try and steal a few for you guys if they are handing them out haha.

They said that David Bass is hand picking them so we don't know the exact method he uses, but I can't imagine being large could hurt us.

I think they said that Guild size doesn't matter (excluding guilds with less than 4 members, which are ineligible) so I don't think that will affect it too much

This looks like good news, as I was wondering how many would be considered the minimum (funny how I commented on seeing 10 people guilds). There's a lot a guilds out there, so having an invite is like winning a daily lotto game. Razz

Hah I would love this, though my internet is so slow we'd probably be to a new client by the time I'm done downloading it. Muffins!?!

I'm thinking that since he mentioned both wanting large and small groups of people being initiated into the testing that perhaps they'll separate the guilds into groups and then further pick from there? Makes sense to me, think about it. There's a lot of guilds out there that meet the bare minimum of 10 members. Then there's guilds like us who have a decent amount of members, and there are large guilds out there (At least I think there are. I'm too lazy to check right now.)

Separating the guilds into groups that are say, clocked every 20 members. So there's a group for 10-20, one for 21-40, one for 41-60, ect. Would allow for the developers who are looking to test groups of different sizes to quantify who gets in without overloading on either really large groups (Thereby not being able to test small-group abilities) or very small groups (Thereby not being able to test large-group abilities).

If they go that route, then I think it's safe to say that we've got a better chance at being picked than if they just picked them all at random without grouping them first. There's also the small matter that most of the guilds (At least last time I checked) are under 10 members, so I think we've got a relatively good fighting chance.

But really, it all comes down to luck in the end. Note that the 20 member separation was just a rough estimate of me throwing numbers around without knowing what I'm talking about. As such HOPEFULLY no one got hurt. I don't actually know what the developers have in mind, and I certainly don't think that the chances of us getting picked are as great as winning the lottery.

Well it's all about luck for us, I guess. No reason why we can't get in but the same thing for so so many others.

Let's hope this will work out for us! <3

I'm not sure it would be very fair for the other large guilds if we were selected because of something completly unrelated to star wars...

Am I the only one who thinks that if we were to get into the beta we should be an imperial guild in the beta? Just so we don't spoil our launch day fun?

I'm not worried about having the launch day fun being "spoiled" by our time in Beta. For one thing, there hasn't been a clear launch date (currently rumored for the holidays) so launch is still a ways off.

As for breaking apart into groups, it'll turn into a mess. Better to just be patient then to try and "increase" our chances.

We would have to start a whole new guild on swtor.com and either switch over our accounts or make all new ones. It doesn't sound even remotely worth the trouble.

Also, another forum member and I are already in the Beta, so that would have us on opposite factions

I suppose you are right... (I'd make an imperial anyway) But now I'm just hyping myself up for something I haven't got into yet.

There is a good thing about being in beta being that those largely undecided on a class for their primary character can take a look through them. In my case, I'm debating in if I want to be a Jedi Knight or a Smuggler as my primary character (I'm slightly leaning on Jedi Knight).

Even with no beta invite, at least the people that pre-ordered get a early start on the game Razz

Well, from the sound of what I have heard in podcasts, tweets, and that post, they have a primary and secondary method. First they randomly select a guild that possess 10 or more members, then the community leads read about the guild and check its overall activity. They want to select guilds that aren't only going to play the game, but will try out all of its features in large numbers utilizing coordinated guild events. There is a portion where they are hand picking it, so I think if we get our foot in the door with the random selection we have a great chance of getting it. Hopefully, the community leads at BioWare are bronies too, or at least don't mind them.
