Got my beta 4 invite after all.  So I'll check out warfronts but won't do any more quests so as not to see any more PvE content in case I decide to buy.

I preordered yesterday.  Got the beta invite today.  The Steam client is not updating though.  I had to download a client from their site.  Patching about 7 gigs now.

If you preordered from Trion you are automatically in the beta, just check your account to confirm it.  Retail sites are supposed to send/hand you a key.

that's not true.  If you preorder from Trion, you will receive a beta invite on your account, but it's not there yet.  Under account management it still says I have yet to receive a beta invite and won't let me log in to patch.  My account says I own Rift and the account is active, but still no beta access.

Got a response and not very happy with it.

'Only a small portion of the beta invites have gone out so far. Please keep an eye on your email address over the next couple of days. The beta event is going to be held from Friday, Jan. 7, 2011 at 10:00 AM PST (18:00 GMT) through 10:00 AM PST (18:00 GMT) on Monday, Jan. 10, 2011. I do apologize for any confusion regarding this issue.'

So they tempt you to preorder for the event, then possibly won't even let you participate.  I only complain because I have pretty awful download rates and share a connection which limits when I can download as well.  7gb between right now and Sat is pushing it, if I don't get the code until tomorrow night I may miss the whole thing.

I have no invite from either my Fileplanet access (I thought it was VIP but maybe not) nor my Gamestop pre-order.  I even searched through my Spam folder, at which point I found yet another message that I apparently am trying to sell my WoW account, grrrrr  icon_eek

BTW those who didn't get an invite yet, did you apply the code on Trion website and set up the subscription fee payment?  I guess that's kind of obvious..

I entered the beta code but did not set up a sub. It does tell me that I have the beta for beta invite4 but does not allow me as of yet to download any sort of client.

Hark, if you have someone who is in the beta already that trust you, they can just give you their login info and you can patch up.  Then just sign in with your info once you get your beta invite.

lol, this isn't boding well for their methods or systems.  Right after posting I checked my email again and the email with the invite info is there.  I click the button to 'sign the EULA' and it takes me to my Rift account page where it still says the same thing 'you have not been invited to beta'

Just checked again and got the email invite and got everything setup (signed EULA etc), I think.  Can't download right now as I'm still at work.

FWIW it was again in my spam folder (gmail) so double check that if you haven't seen anything.

My characters are on the Byriel server.  I have a couple on both the Guardian and Defiant sides.  Will edit this with the names tomorrow afternoon in case anyone wants to whisper me to group for warfronts.

I went to the local Gamestop. I asked about Rift...the guy looked at me kinda...doumbfounded. He asked me what it was...I told him again, "Rift...it is an MMO that is coming out next month. Supposedly, you guys have beta keys if I pre-order."

His reply? "Oh...uh....ok....let me look and see...."

He looks it up on his computer screen...and says there is nothing by that name. But, he does say some pokimon game is there. I say, "It is called Rift...maybe Rifts....but you should have it available for preorder."

His reply? "Oh...uh...ok...well....there is nothing by that name...so...yeah...uh...."

I roll my eyes, and say, "Ok, thanks."

so, I bought it through Trion's site....

Email invite update from Trion:

Update 2 (4:30 PST)

Emails from the earlier batch are still processing. Once those are finished, we plan to send out more this evening. If you have not gotten your email yet, please don't be concerned until I post here that all emails have been sent.

Thank you for your patience and watch here in this thread for updates.

Well just after midnight tonight I ended up getting invited to the beta, so hopefully I will see some of you there.  Just patching the 7gb of game now.  Are we all going to be on the Byriel server as someone suggested?

I did the D2D pre-order last night...the CE for $47 was too good to pass up.  I have the pre-order key but no beta invite yet so no idea about this weekend's play.

EDIT: got the beta invite this morning and started the download around lunchtime.  I'm currently around 5GB in with an hour to go...only averaging 500-600k so it's slow.  I figure I'll probably need the patch after I get it installed but I might make it in tonight.

My characters are on Byriel but it probably doesn't matter for beta.  Will be more interested in seeing if we have enough people here, at OO, and at The Wanderers to form our own guild at launch.  I mention The Wanderers as a number of us post here and at OO.

So, ehm, I kinda pre-ordered this as well, since I'm an MMO whore.

Anyways, is anyone else concerned they didnt get an order confirmation while ordering directly through TRion? I got invited to the weekends beta though, at once, so thats fine. And man, the download is blazingly fast! 2.89MB a sec? thats awesome!

I signed up for US servers, figuring I could hang with some of you guys? Anyone else going to play today? I'll probably be on in a few hours or so

I'll be doing warfronts this weekend.  Don't want to do any PvE past level 20 in the new zones as I'll almost certainly pre-order and don't want to spoil the fun of discovering new content at launch.

Have you guys picked a Shard to play on?

Also it sounded like from Elmo's comment that you'd be able to start with a higher level character to try the Warfront stuff?

No I did not mean to say that.  You have to start with a new character if you have never been in the beta but getting to level 10 is pretty quick.  I have been in all 3 betas and have a level 16 Defiant Cleric named Pope and a level 14 Guardian Mage named Trid plus a few other alts I won't be using in warfronts.  My characters are on Byriel.

I have to say I like what I see.  To be a beta almost two months from release it's in extremely good shape.  One of the first things I thought was this was the love child of Warhammer and LOTRO with uncle WoW chipping in some design choices.  I hope they fix the AA though...it would make a huge difference graphically.  Love the very customizable UI which makes the sting of no add-ons much less noticeable.

So far I have tried:

Defiant Dark Elf looking Elementalist/Stormcaller/Pyromancer - Had fun gameplay, and loved the look of the pet.
Guardian High Elf Druid/Shaman/Justicar - Melee based cleric.  Druid has a fairy pet that heals her, so early on the druid has no actual heals herself.
Defiant Big Purple Guy Beast Master - Was having trouble finding a good pairing with Beast Master so I have shelved it for now.

The graphics are really nice, and performance is incredible.  I ended up in numerous Rift battles with probably 40 or 50 other players, noticed no lag at all, framerate stayed over 30 FPS on an aging system.

I was really thinking of playing a rogue but none of the classes were really jumping out at me right now.
