No one got them for the Monday beta yet. I think only PC gamer subscribers get them over the weekend.

My dad's in northern Ontario this week....

I'm sorry.

Now I just need to find a download/install link so I can be playing at 2:01. . .

I love the scale of the maps. Whenever I see footage of people running around it almost looks like they are crawling at superspeed just because the environment dwarfs them so much. The only other multiplayer game I can think of that even approaches the same view distances is WW2 online. In that game you need it to spot and attack approaching aircraft thousands of feet up and model realistic artillery and tank cannon ballistics.

WHERE IS MY BETA!?

I STOLE THEM.

I'm multiboxing an army right now.

As I understand it from reading the reddit AMA, it will take 2-4 weeks to get everybody that has a key into the closed beta.

That's actually a smart way to ramp up the volume but will make the nerds angry.

"WHERE'S MAH BETA KEY"??

Well, that certainly is a buzzkill! I was hoping I would be able to go home tonight and actually play the game. Guess I have to wait even more.

I think priority goes to PS1 players, then they'll add people in waves.

Welp, I never played Planetside 1 and didn't know anything about Planetside 2 until about a week ago. Holy sh*t this looks awesome. It's making me break my rule of "No MMO games" I just have to make sure I don't become a crackhead with it and get divorced.

I just signed up for the beta this morning does that mean I'll likely be one of the last ones in?

Like others have said:

“External Beta invites will be sent out in waves on an as needed basis, with priority given to active Planetside subscribers, inactive past subscribers and then Priority Beta Code and opt-in registrants, in that order,” they say, adding that “invitations to the External Beta will automatically be sent via email to the address associated with the Station Account utilized to register for Beta participation on PlanetSide2.com.”

“Participants of the upcoming External Beta will be under a non-disclosure agreement if they accept participation and enter into the External Beta. We look forward to hearing players’ reactions, feedback and comments so we can continue to refine and polish PlanetSide 2, making it even more awesome!”

It was also be on Steam.

Sorry, went back 4 pages and didn't see that info.

You know whats amusing? Following a reddit link to one of Smedley's tweets and seeing you, yes you Strangeblades. Yourself and your exceptionally appropriate avatar come up twice as responses under his tweet. In other news check your email, or better yet, try this link! If it lets you through the login then grats.

Man, do TR look lame or WHAT?! What's with that guy's Mad Max reject goggles?

Those are moto google goggles. The coolest.

I don't think they even have any glass or perspex in them... they're just frames!

Brave words. Spoken loud and proud until you find yourself on the receiving end of my chaingun.

I'm beginning to see the fractures of a split! NC(GWJ) vs TR(GWJ)!

If you come back to the Republic you will not be terminated with the other traitors.

Call me crazy but i found myself gravitating towards the Gauss rifle when playing NC. At least I think that is what their faction specific machine gun was called. It was a toss up for me between that Gauss and the Vanu laser rifle (pulsar) for my favorite stock weapon when every big ticket item was on cooldown. I am a little fuzzy on the +/- of the weapons but I recall the Gauss being slightly more accurate at long range and did more damage. But the pulsar had a longer range and bigger ammo clip? It could be that the pulsar was more accurate but not by much.
