Ok, I gave it a name myself as “Founders’ Open Beta”. The Open Beta phase for Forsaken World (CN) on 16th September, which will be in a few days, will be limited to a group of players. Yes, they will be getting a head-start. Like I mentioned in my previous post, there are a few requirements to be fulfilled. While those who were in the Closed Beta will get in automatically, the invitation code will have another set of requirements. Only Closed Beta players with a character, who has obtained 20 achievements (not points), will be able to obtain an invitation code. I am not really sure if the codes can be used multiple times, but this move has sure incurred some wrath in the forums. The next phase, where everyone will be able to play, will be called “Open Experience Phase”.
Update: I think there is an misunderstanding in my sentence structure, so let me rephrase it.
1. Closed Beta players are 100% confirmed to be able to play in this “Founders’ Open Beta”.
2. Closed Beta players with a character having 20 achievements will receive a code, and this code can be used to invite his or her friend(s?) into the “Founders’ Open Beta”.
Below are 2 videos I saw while browsing through the website, possibly uber old, but pardon me as I have been lacking time to surf through individual websites recently.
