Neverwinter Open Beta

Perfect World Entertainment announces open beta testing is now underway in Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter, Cryptic Studios' upcoming MMORPG. Signups are underway at the game's official website. The game will be free to download and play, and with the promise of no further character wipes, this amounts to a soft launch:

The major milestone of Open Beta marks the beginning of unrestricted access to Neverwinter and its content creation system, the Foundry, along with no further character wipes. All skill upgrades, profession choices, personal customizations, companions and mounts are persistent and shape the way adventurers rebuild the city of Neverwinter, saving it from Valindra Shadowmantle's evil forces. Neverwinter's Foundry further enables and empowers gamers and authors to create their own unique adventures, publish their own self-generated content directly to the game world, review the missions and quests of others and even tip creators with in-game currency.

"After four successful Beta Weekends and many months of internal Alpha tests, we are thrilled to be in Open Beta," said Cryptic Studios Executive Producer and COO, Craig Zinkievich. "On behalf of the entire team at Perfect World and Cryptic Studios, I'd like to thank the Founders, Beta Weekend participants, Alpha testers, fans, and press for their feedback and continued support in making Neverwinter the best game we've ever launched."

Open Beta also brings a new feature to the Neverwinter community. Neverwinter's Gateway is a web portal that allows players to remotely access in-game status information via their desktops, tablets, or smartphones. In its initial state, players can craft, view their characters, buy and sell in the Auction House, monitor guild activity and daily events, and access their mailboxes.

guys, any game with a queue is junk and should not be supported. they should have 2x the necessary user capacity, not half.
I'm guessing WoW falls into this right? Just how many years with 9 million plus subs have they had...

My biggest complaint, is that it's lagging the hell out of STO right now.
