    Default beta? wrong info?

    Turbine also announced that any players that pre-order the Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion prior to Wednesday, June 5th will be granted guaranteed beta access.

    It says that people who pre-order before June 5th get guaranteed beta access, not when the beta is.

    I'm not sure if English is your first language, but the sentence is pretty clear:

    any players that pre-order the Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion prior to Wednesday, June 5th will be granted guaranteed beta access.
    this means that IF a player pre-orders before Wed, June 5th, THEN he will be granted access to the beta WHEN the beta begins, no date for beta is given.

    The June 5th date is the condition of pre-order, not the date of the beta.

    The language in the article is not ambiguous. It says that if you order by June 5, you are guaranteed access. It makes no mention whatsoever of what the beta start date is, and doesn't even imply anything about it.

    Um, speaking of reading, do you realize you only quoted one sentence?

    Oh come on now BOgre, you should know by now that your supposed to take 2nd hand news out of context and not comprehend the info available to make Turbine out to be the bad guy.

    June 5th will be granted guaranteed beta access.
    i thought this is clear, but i guess it wasn't clear enough for some. oh well..

    p.s. english is not my first language, that is true. but i don't see how turbine could grant beta access before they even set a date for the beta.

    They made it clear with the WHOLE sentence, only quoting a very small part of it makes it unclear.

    And Turbine is not the only company to offer pre-access to a beta before a beta is announced. You would be hard pressed to find a company that didn't do it.

    OP: You seem to be separating the words after the final comma, and thinking that constitutes a separate sentance. It doesn't. Try to see it this way:
    "Player buys before June 5th. Player gets access to beta when it arrives."

    For native English speakers it's obvious, but I can see how it might be confusing for others.
    oh well, guess no beta anytime soon

    actually it was pretty clear to me. if i wanted guaranteed beta access preorder before june 5th. its simple.. Beta usually is soon after that date. What it means if you failed to understand the message is the preorder people get in first with anyone else they say gets in. after certain stages others will get in until beta is open to all.

    there was no hidden agendas in it at all. i dont get where people keep thinking this junk.

    It shouldnt take long for beta to launch. The xpack launches in August, and Turbine would need at least a two month trial period of beta testing before launch so hopefully no major bugs are released. Id give it two weeks max before beta goes into lammania.
