Any ideas how the end of beta is going to play out? Will there be a total reset or is this open beta going to function as a soft launch?

They have said that there will is not a intended wipe from open beta to release. So you keep what you make right now.

One thing that may change is that right now the classes are not faction specific as intended at release. So you may be able to create certain classes/faction combo's and keep them now. But you might not be able to one create after release when both sides get a new race and more classes added. For example you can make a steam punk beast master but you may not be able to make one once the game leaves open beta.

is anybody else here finding the amount of people here a little disturbing? (lack of people really). i mean, this is supposed to be OB, but the forums are literally a ghost town...

Will all six races be open for the beta? I was just in character creation and was disappointed to find only two from each faction (as was in CBT).

Jesset knowledge is power and some of the larger guilds are using it as such for a tactical advantage going into open beta. A lot of the beta users are still active but they use their guild channels to communicate instead of the forums. I can't blame them as it's a easy way for them to gain more players without giving out info to player that may be their enemy's in game.

Lili there I don't think we will get the extra races for both sides till after open beta when we get a bunch of new classes as well. And yes I want my shapeshifter and I want him now :cry: .

I had an answer by one of the devs on Facebook. The other races - as well as new classes and maps! - will be available after release.

Must say, the devs and CMs of this game are some of THE best I have ever worked with or experienced!

I am wondering if anyone has official news on what the cap will be for OBT? :) I'd like to try to cap at least one character before it raises. lol
