Same here! Although I am posting some 8 hours after you did, I still hope to get in. I already feel like a post release beta tester for two games, Oblivion, and Hearts of Iron III.
Both run horribly, both have many overlooked problems with game play. Although Oblivion was basically given up back in 2007 by its developer, Hearts of Iron III is still being worked on and slowly improved.
Oblivion had me trying again and again to get it running on my computer since it was released over four years ago. A few months ago I gave it another try with a completely new computer, and after installing all the mods for it, it still crashes. But after much online research and weeks of trying to get it working, I seem to have found the best way of running the game with the least amount of problems. It would CTD every 20-30 minutes before, and now I can make it work for several hours without a problem. Which is ironic, because Fallout 3 uses the same engine as Oblivion, and I had very little problems making that game work. Although, I think by Fallout 3 they solved the memory recycle problem, as well as opening up more than the only allowed 1.8 gigs of ram that Oblivion used.
So even though I haven't been a beta tester before, recent experience has shown me that I could put up with the bugs, and the CTDs to make a worthy game work. If I need to send out info on any problems I encounter to Stardock then all the better. Heck, two other MMORPGs have turned me down for their betas before, so at least for once I would like to become a beta tester for a promising new game.
