Open Beta & NDA – Who’s Right and Who’s LuckyAugust 18, 2008
Edit: I confused today’s and tomorrow’s date. D’oh!
As of this morning, we’re armed with yet two more exciting, crucial dates to our already-packed social calendar. The first is September 7th for Open Beta (cue people screaming: “Only ONE week for OB?” and then they tip over a police car and light a small dog on fire), and the second is, unless Mark Jacobs changes it between now and then, tomorrow August 19th for the NDA lift. At that time, we’ll reportedly get the whole scoop as to why it was so darned important to keep the NDA up for all of us whose names don’t end in -spy, -assively or -spot. I am so eager to hear this, I almost fell asleep.
Zzzz… ANYway, seeing as how tomorrow will probably be a madhouse of posts — you’re going to want to stay tuned to WAAAGH! 24/7 as we bring you a new post each and every minute for an entire day! — let’s see the results to our little office pool we had going over these two dates. We originally thought the NDA drop and start of open beta would be on the same day, but that obviously didn’t happen. So if we let everyone’s guess count for both events, who was spot on?
RJO guessed August 19, so he hit the date spot-on for NDA liftage, and Castigator (ouch) nailed September 7! Awesome job guys! You get… what’s in the box! (absolutely nothing!)
Granted, we saw that a load of people placed their guesses around the middle of August (the 15th in particular) through the first week or so of September, so I guess a lot more of you can pat yourselves on the back for being superior specimens of humanity.
Now we need a new office pool… hm… any ideas?
