    Hi all,

    I've been floating around the boards this evening and I see there's a lot of misconception about what's happening today (Friday the 15th) and some additional concerns.

    Firstly let me just get it out of the way:

    Today is not the start of Open Beta nor Preview Weekend. You will have advanced notice to these dates and as of yet we have not announced them. The only thing occurring today is that later on we will be activating all Pre-Order (CE & SE) Open Beta and Head Start codes (hold onto all of your codes though!) This is the first step in preparations towards hosting a live environment and the pre-launch events ahead.

    Concerning Preview Weekend:

    All CE testers who have applied a code will be invited to preview weekend, regardless of computer specs or association. Please realize that this means there is no assurance that everyone invited can in fact run the game. In addition to CE all current closed beta participants will be participating in Preview Weekend and as an added bonus up to the first 50 thousand SE Open-Beta accounts registered on the Mythic Account Center will also be invited to join us for this stress test extravaganza!

    Concerning CE Items and the Head Start EDITED FOR CLARIFICATION:

    Any characters created during the head start will have access to theexclusive faces. However, they cannot change their face until the CEProduct Key is entered.

    The answer will be obvious once you see it in action, but for now let me try to explain. Players will be able to create and play their head start characters, however, during the headstart they will not have access to the in game bonuses provided with the collectors edition. Once a CE product code is associated with their account they will be able to use them post launch, this includes everything from the exclusive faces to the cloaks and everything included within the CE even on characters made during the head start.

    What is this new "Mythic Account Center" and is it different from the Beta Center?

    The Beta Center and Mythic Account Center are separate tools. In preparation for live we are phasing out the Beta Center. The new Mythic Account Center (current Dark Age subscribers are already familiar with it) will serve as your portal to all your Mythic subscriptions. If you have not done so already you do not need to apply a code to your Beta Center account, all invitations will be handled via the Account Center.

    I hope this has helped to answer some of your questions, have a great night and stay tuned for more info. Exciting times ahead, we'll do our best to keep you in the know!
