… sorta. I’ve been playing the “open beta” as has Graev now for about a day and a half. I asked around (friends, twitter, forums, etc) and didn’t get an answer about whether or not the NDA was still up for “open beta”. I went ahead and shot a PM to the CM from SoE but didn’t hear back from him for several hours (which is normal, they’re busy) so I went ahead and posted my and Graev’s impressions.
Turns out the CM “Pex” responds via PM with:
“There is an NDA in effect. Just don’t post reviews or screenshots to the internet yet, but it’s ok to talk to your friends.”
So down go the impressions until the “open beta” is open because I’m nice. I think they should do a better job letting people know about the NDA. Yes, I know it’s there when you sign up. I just assumed like every other open beta that they left it up. It’s not on their forums anywhere (or wasn’t for the past 30+ hours) or on any fan site where people are commenting non-stop. (Massively, MMORPG.com, TenTonHammer, just to name a few) or website.
Someone figure out what “open beta” means, please.
