Hell no.  This just means I don't need to worry about debating with myself on whether or not I should wait in line to play the damn thing. Whew!  Now I can focus on important things, like whether or not to buy a 6-pack for the RoosterTeeth guys (and if so, what type).

Per GW2 facebook page

Yes, beta invitations have begun going out. They'll be sent out over the next few days. Please remember that discussing the beta in any way, shape, or form -- including your status in it -- is a breach of NDA. Don't risk your beta access!

Now while I doubt they'd check our little corner of the web, don't risk it. Zero talking about it! I bolded the status part so people also notice the fact that you shouldn't even mention you're in it! Hope some folks get in!

New post about a micro transaction system they are thinking about doing in Guild Wars 2.

I'm okay with micro transactions in GW2 personally.  I think they handled it very well in the first game so I have confidence they'll handle it well in the sequel.  However, I'm still on the fence on the trading of in game gold for gems which are bought with real money.  Everybody seems to be doing systems like this now or will be doing them in the future so I sort of feel like "oh okay if we have to do it, I at least trust Arena.net to do it well," but I have to admit dealing with this in Star Trek Online does make me a little leery of it.  They do say they feel like they don't want to have the ability to buy an unfair advantage, which is good.  I just hope nothing like the Cardassian Lock Boxes show up.  God what an awful system.

And as long as there doesn't end up being an official way to turn gold or gems back into real life money I guess I can live with it.

Some cash shop screens have been leaked into the wild. It seems for the most part all these items are indeed cosmetic or buffs. Folks have pointed out that the worry seems to come from two items, the Megaphone and the Mystic Key. Megaphone is kinda odd but if I can still block folks then I couldn't care less (if they make it so I can't block them, then there's a problem). Mystic Key honestly bothers me the most. This screamed out "Cardassian Lock Box" to me to which I echo Adam's concern and annoyance of them in STO. So long as these Mystic Boxes don't show up with the same frequency as I found Carassian Lock Boxes in STO then I probably won't mind converting some gold to gems to unlock these things.

I hope both items get removed.  They are both absolutely terrible ideas. I don't care how often the Mystic Boxes show up, having a chance at all for a random box to drop that you need to pay IRL money to buy keys to open is a TERRIBLE plan in any video game.  I seriously cannot think of a single type of game where that won't be awful.

The Megaphone is just horrid because of the trolling it allows.  I cannot think of a single situation in which it is a GOOD idea to let players have this power.  Best case scenario they are going to spam how awesome their guild is or some other message I don't give a fuck about.  BEST CASE.  I don't even want to think about the worst.

I am going to hold out hope that these leaked images are well, work in progress, unconfirmed, and will be removed before launch.

While I don't condone the megaphone, I'm wondering if there are really people out there who will pay RL moneyz to buy enough of those things to make a difference.  Figured (because it's only one message) that the occasional "PENIS!!1! LOLZ" would pop up for everyone and that would be it.

@GuildWars2

Okay guys, if you did not get a beta key by now, you will not be in the test this weekend. Thanks for being patient! ~RB2

Sorry guys.  I guess we have after April 10th to look forward to still.
