WoW Beta Sign-ups Begin

As promised, the World of Warcraft Beta Signups are now underway (thanks Worldofwar.net). Word is that only one application per household is permitted, but there's no need to rush: "Participants will be selected on a random basis, so you will have the same chance of getting into the World of Warcraft® Beta regardless of when you decide to sign up during the one (1) week application period. We are not taking applications on a 'first-come, first-serve basis.'"

There's no way in hades they'll stop all exploits, especially radar progs that sniff packets. No MMOG to date has stopped radar progs and WoW isn't going to be any different no matter how great a history Blizzard has on dealing with hacks/cheats.

Well here's hoping that this will be the first game by Blizzard without online cheats/hacks/whathave you.

I am interested in this game but they game that is really starting to draw my attention is Final Fantasy XI. Why they couldnt have called it FF Online is beyond me.

And then City of Hero's. Kickin ass in tights while flying around the city heh. Does this mean if you can fly all the uber people will be at the tops of the buildings and all the newbies will be buzzing around the bottom?

I'm really surprised that there hasn't been another WW2 MMORPG considering all the game related to it have been spewing out.

Hey #20, your post is good for the part about putting hackers in prison to get raped, that's about it. Warcraft ownz. Blizzard ownz. What other RTS company bans their hackers and now, FFA abusers? Um, let's start off the top of my head...NONE. Warcraft 3 is the only RTS with I believe a flawless interface. It has everything for a fast paced RTS. I love it to death and has been only game installed on my comp since day one. Maybe you just gotta learn to play. BTW-Those phrases and funny things the units say are great. If you don't like alittle humor, get a life.

Ya though since when did they NOT ban people? I think they are the only RTS company I know that bans people for hacking and actually has people that watch players replays for others that may be hacking. That's no easy job.

It amazed me how, a few weeks ago, how many people thought this game was going to be like NWN. Everyone was downloading that alpha just raring to play it.. of course finding out later its nothing like NWN.

Now.. even though the beta signups are up for a week.. and Blizzard has made it clear that its not first come first serve.. people flock to the servers.. and crash it and lock it up.

Ever read the battle.net forums?

Ever play somone on Battle.net..

I weep for the future of this game. Blizzard better have a HEAVY banning hand on this game or its going to be a disaster.

MMORPGs are ALL about the community.. a few 100 griefers can ruin the game for 1000's..

I wonder when a company buys a gaming company, if they point at the old company logo & go, "OWNED!"

Anyway, most of you have no chance to get into this anyway because you fall right into the big 55% of the pie. The most likely guy to get to play is 62, married, lives in Alaska, and never played a video game in his life. Because he's a database standout. Even if they said, this is totally random, you know it can't be. They need people that will play the living hell out of it, kids. And they need people who actually know how to write a good review of the game and point out errors better than the kids who will say, 'Yo, that power-ability down in the dungeon is whacked like a mother fucker man. I'm like trying to bounce off the wall and I keep soda-poppin' and shit. You needs to fix dat. Word.'

Because they aren't going to understand whatever the hell soda-poppin' is or whatever the hell you kids might call whatever the hell it is that is giving you a problem. But adults take off all that trendy bullshit because they've grown up.

Here's the thing. You want to play the beta. But you're 17. You ain't getting it, because every 17 year old that owns a computer knows about this game and thinks it will be cool. And maybe it will be cool. Personally, I think it has promise, but every Warcrap game up until now has sucked ass big time!! "Dabu, Zugzug, stop touching me, what do you want".... what a bunch of fairy ass bullshit spoken by some fairy ass in a tutu. "where you want to go". BAH! Then, even if you want to like it, you play it online with some little teenager that has no concept at all of fun that comes in with some gay lightning attack that he learned from getting his ass beat in the same gay way. Spread the gay love. Of course, sooner or later, some little kid with an understanding of code starts making scripts and passing them along and there's more gay love. Personally, I'd like to see that happen at a lan sometime because you know that half the people in the lan would beat the little fag to a bloody pulp and shit inside his computer. And this game will probably suck online because so many gay ass little bitches are out there who have no life & will spend the time in between wacking off to porn by learning how to cheat because they can't handle someone being legitimately better than them. Personally, I'd like to see these cheaters who use scripts get put in prison so some 290 pound guy can rape their asses and hold them down so his friends can share the meal together.

#1. It could cause Sony's business model to suddenly seem so inferior such that they would scrap their current policy of torturing their customers for as long as they can, extracting every last penny and not giving a damn about the community.

#2. Introduce a new type of MMORPG where games are released with more content than even the hardiest hardcore gamers could hope to encompass. WoW has a 5 year roll-out plan and supposedly the better part of 2 years will be in right at the beginning.

#3. A new game from Blizzard. If it's one thing they know how to do right, it's releasing a product that is fun. The graphics are a little behind the latest and greatest at this point, but real MMORPG players, the ones who have been there, done that, know what they value most in an MMORPG and it isn't graphics.

#4. It has potential. Just like every other MMORPG out there, and Blizzard has been be voted 'most likely to succeed' for years and years. Sure Vivendi owns them now (bah), but the core team is still alive and kicking.

Blizzard should get some offsite support when they do these things...like rent all of UUNET or something...

It's up for a week so what's the problem? Big deal if you can't sign up for beta tonight. Hth is that 1 step forward and 2 back? If you didn't expect this to happen then you deserve the aggrivation you caused yourself. The reg page isn't down, there's 500k ppl trying to access it at the same time.

Gee, the registration page is down.

I guess this is supposed to inspire confidence right?

Why is always 1 step forward, 2 steps back in this industry?
