    We are currently crossing our T’s and dotting our I’s in anticipation for the Beta invitations. We hope to send them out next week. So if you haven’t signed up for the beta yet you can do so here.

    More...

    Does anyone know if the beta is just for the SA client, or if it's for functionality of the SA content in current client?

    Cos if it's for SA client, I'm crap out of luck, (don't think I could download it in the time that the beta is open =P) But if it's for functionality in the existing client, I could probably manage that =)

    Teeshy, look at this Q&A from the SA website FAQ page (http://www.uoherald.com/stygianabyss/gameoverview/faq/):

    In other words, even from your location, downloading the client and patching it might not take as long as you might expect.

    We won't know if they will, however it's highly unlikely because of our small population and the fact that we will have to download SA at agonisingly slow speeds and lag like crap while playing it.

    So we're looking at Tuesday at the earliest, huh? Damn, I hate waiting, especially when you wait to find out you weren't accepted.

    Except when Monday is a National holiday, then the week starts with Tuesday for working folk and Wednesday is only the 2nd day in the working week.

    It would be nice if they would send out a E-mail to those not excepted for the beta, just to say Thanks for applying, but the beta is now full.
    But of course there is a whole different Pandora's Box to deal with if they did.
    You have to figure that they had to postpone the SA for fixes to the KR client, so they are probably just making darned sure that it is not gonna be a bugfest like KR was. My advice, be patient. I know, its hard, but I am not a patient man either.
    I would rather have a almost decent client to beta test, than one that I spend 90% of my time sending bug reports.
    Good Luck to all, and hope to see everyone in the beta.... if I get in. :D
