It appears as if Press have begun being added to the Beta. Whether or not this is still the Friends & Family Beta or the next phase (Closed Beta), there are no signs. As of current, all we know is that Press have been given Beta access right now, which does bring us one step closer! This means that myself, ScyberDragon, Magistrate, Force, and ProzaicMuze will be playing and providing streams/coverage in the near future... Stay tuned, ;).
UPDATE: It's official! The Closed Beta has now begun... This means those of you opting in can potentially receive invites.
