Blue Milk & Cereal: Will You Be There For The End Of (Beta) Times?

No day would be complete without the breakfast of Jedi: Blue Milk & Cereal.  Every morning, the team at Ask A Jedi will get Force-induced thoughts coursing through your head with delicious issues from around the galaxy! Join in the discussion below to make your voice heard!

If you’re reading this, you’re likely quite aware that the official launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic is just over 2 weeks away on December 20,  and even less than that if you count Early Game Access!

With that in mind, BioWare is winding down not only the current Game Testing weekend, but the entire Game Testing program as of 11:59PM BT (BioWare Time, otherwise known as Central Standard Time!) Time is needed to focus on the tasks associated with preparing for what is likely to be the largest MMO launch to date, and honestly, did you really expect to be able to just keep on playing beta until launch?

Back in 2004, World of Warcraft ended its beta with a bang. Blizzard launched a game-wide attack by the Burning Legion (not to mention a few Raid bosses), leaving capital cities (and players) laying in waste. If you were there, you know it was quite a blast! The mood was both festive and deadly. It was the end of times.

With the closure of TOR’s beta program tonight, I’m wondering if we’ll see some of the same things. Or heck, even something totally different! I haven’t seen an official announcement one way or the other, but I think a special event of some kind to commemorate the commercial launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic is warranted, and hope to see one.

I’m lucky enough to be one of the general Game Testing participants, so I plan on being there until the last bit flows from the server. I plan to capture screenshots and movies, so 10 years from now we can all look back and say “I remember that! Vanilla TOR was the best! ;)

So, I just wanted the AAJ faithful to check in – will you be there for the end of beta tonight? Do you expect anything special to go down? Vote and let us know your thoughts about it!

Will you participate in the end of beta testing tonight?

    I tend to sleep around 11 PM CST in order to feel rested for work on Monday morning. I’ll see if any event is going on at that time, perhaps stay up 30 minutes longer.

  2. Nope, didn’t get into this final weekend. Which is fine because it just means i’ll be even more excited for it in a couple weeks!

  3. Well, sounds to be a huge /dance party…. “Dooommm’s day”
