Warhammer Online Beta Opens

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Website has news that the beta test for Mythic's imminent MMORPG is now open to all applicants in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. According to the Warhammer Online Beta Page they have received nearly 900,000 applications so far, and word is: "The Open Beta will be level capped and content restricted. You will be allowed to choose any of the game's 20 unique careers and advance through rank 20. You will also be free to explore and battle across Tiers 1 and 2 of each army's homeland. Please note that any characters created during the Open Beta will NOT carry over into the live game as they will be wiped from the servers." Thanks Massively. Update: Though it says "open beta," this is currently still only available for closed beta participants and preorder customers at this time. Also, The European Warhammer Online Website has word that registration for European applicants is temporarily unavailable due to server maintenance. Thanks Ant.

If you want to avoid the hassle just wait a month. No more issues with everyone trying to get in at the same time. And those with very short attention spans will have gone back to whatever they prefer.

I've tested 2/3 of the classes to at least level six and yes they all play fairly different. I'm enjoying it even though this Semi Open Beta is stressing the servers to the max. I've had ten times more CTD and server connection issues than the Closed Beta.

And if you're waiting for a highly anticipated MMO to have a smooth launch you'll be waiting a long long time. This game is great. I expect the first month or two to be a very bumpy start. Servers are not cheap they won't buy more than they think they'll need so the guess work is going to cause us all head-aches come launch.
