Same here... I don't know how many people from Stardock will be going to Pax, but it would seem strange to release a beta when some of the team is away...

Historically, they don't typically release things on Fridays, especially things like Beta 1 of a new game.

If a good chunk of the team is at PAX, they likely won't be around to get it prepped for release before Friday, either. I hope for this week, but I *expect* next week.

Sorry guys, the beta for Elemental won't be out until some time after PAX.  Just wanted to let you all know before you get your hopes up too much.

Bummer.  I should know better than get my hopes up!  I'm sure there's plenty to do in preparation for the madness that will be the beta.

Thanks for chiming in, Zoomba!

Quoting Zoomba,

This forum is in desprate need of a 'remove karma' button.

Can you or anyone from SD give us a guestimate on where the vutoff line will be on who gets in the beta? I know every one pre-ordering the game is in, but I did not have the chance to pre-order yet. If I do it in the course of this week, will that be on the safe side still?

If you preorder before beta is released you will be in for sure.

If you preorder within a week or two of beta, you will also almost for sure be in.

Anything after that, I don't think so.

Zoomba that's a great avatar you have there from an excellent comic I just ran into last month.
