I saw something similar on one of their facebook posts by a fan but didn't think much of it.

Found the link:

http://guildwars2.com/en/the-game/game-faq/

How do I get into the beta?

Guild Wars 2 is currently in closed beta testing, which is by invitation only and under NDA. We plan to have our first non-NDA Beta Weekend Event in late April. For more information, please see the Beta section of the FAQ.


When do Beta Weekend Events (BWEs) start, and how many will there be?

The first BWE is currently planned for late April, and we expect to have one every month or so. The schedule is subject to change and will be confirmed at a later date. Currently, we do not know how many of these events we will have.

The bits I posted relate to pre-purchases.

If you pre-purchase the game, you will automatically get into all the weekend beta events between the time you pre-purchase, and launch day.

In addition to this, there is a closed beta going on, which is invitation only.

So if you want a guaranteed early chance to get into the game, pre-purchasing offers a 100% certain method of doing so (but only during the special weekend events). Otherwise, you have to hope you get lucky with a closed beta invite.

Hope that makes sense! :D

That's correct; the closed beta is closed. The picking's come and gone. No more picking.

The pre-order beta event access is guaranteed, as Nimolist says.

Having said that, they're still two or three months from a release, at the soonest.
(they will find things that need fixing in those betas...)

ooohhh well, Lambik convinced me, we're gonna pre-order too :dodgeball:
I'm hoping we can do some team-ups at the open beta test weekends, like the old days :woot:

I've been reading on the wiki now it's really gonna start and it seems that if you choose different races
you start the game far from eachother, anyone have an idea if it takes long time to meet up with
guildmates from other races ?

Just make sure you do a pre-purchase, not a pre-order; you have to fully pay for the game to qualify for pre-purchase, rather than just put down a deposit (pre-order).

Some retailers are also not doing pre-purchases. The best way to be sure is to get it directly from Arenanet's own website. :)
