ET: QUAKE Wars Beta Tomorrow?

The Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars Official Community Site announces "the middle of this week" (tomorrow?) is the start date for the promised (story) beta testing for Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars, the upcoming multiplayer shooter in the works at Splash Damage (thanks Voodoo Extreme). Word is they will start doling out activation keys tomorrow in a process that will "last several days," and while the update also clarifies that the 60,000 beta keys will be evenly divided between those with free FilePlanet accounts and paying subscribers, keys will be made available to the paying folks only over the first three days of this process. Here's a bit:

Now why are we spreading these out over several days instead of throwing all 60,000 keys out at once? Simple: We want to make sure that as many people as possible get the chance to obtain a key and we feel that scheduling a predetermined number of keys to go out each day is the best way to do this. We're also going to be gradually ramping up the number of available keys with each passing day, so as time goes on, more keys are passed out per day. This allows us to steadily increase the load on our back-end infrastructure, making sure we can effectively test that.

Of course, a multiplayer beta is useless if there are no servers to play on. Towards that end, we've been working closely with a select number of Game Server Providers to get servers for the Public Beta up in North America, Europe, and Australia. We will continue to work with GSPs around the world to make sure Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars servers can be found in every major territory when the game ships.

Hmmm... 60.000 keys under the name 'beta' says nothing to me. Maybe 0.1% of those 60.000 is prepared to do some feedbacking; the rest is just kids thinking they get a demo before a demo is launched. They will all shout the 'demo' sucks when they get disconnected or have CTD's.
Oh well, maybe the demo will have the right changes that make the game fun... Thanks to beta-testing
