The cynical side of me says "don't get your hopes up" especially since that if this happens I'm not going to have the time to participate since it'll likely be starting after this week, which means I'll have class and won't be able to play.

Here is my thinking on what might happen if it is indeed the Public Beta announcement.
They would announce how to get in the Public Beta Event and then perhaps the weekend after next the Public Beta Event begins.

Fact: These beta events will only happen during the weekends. As time goes by Anet will allow more and more people in on the Public Beta Event.

In the past (like with Star Trek Online) I've always said I didn't want in the Beta, because I didn't want an unfinished game to spoil it for me. But from what I've seen from GW2G, I doubt that'll happen. :)

I'm getting this message:

Server Error500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

They are working on fixing that.

@nuvque Not necessarily. Testers are chosen based upon development needs. A wide range of systems is needed for testing. ~RB

You have 48 hrs to sign up. Signing up immediately doesn't increase your chances. Testers are chosen based on development needs. :-) ~RB

Well, I'm signing up regardless. If I do get in, I really hope I don't have exams/assignments that weekend.

SBX, can you post all the steps needed to sign up? I can't signup right now since I am at work, but am curious about the process.

First you DL a diagnostic tool then run it. The tool will then say send. Anet gets the info then a new page opens up. Email Address, Age (in years), Country, Language. Guild name, Guild size, Guild website.

And a few other things which are optional. Fairly simple and straight forward.

It took at least 10 minutes for me to get the confirmation email. Now I just gotta wait to see if I get in. My computer specs might be too low so I may not.

A network error has occurred...
Can't send system information.

Sorry =(
This is what I get when trying to send the info. :(

Tried shutting down the firewall, but that didn't help. :(

Have you tried turning the firewall off and then rebooting the computer? Shut off any anti virus or anti malware?

Pretty much what Stormy said. Oh, and Stormy, they did say that they wanted a large range of systems. You might get in because they want lower end systems to test out.

Have you tried taking a look at the forums or googling that error to see what comes up? Others likely have been getting it and there might be a fix out there.

Not yet. My first guess would be that their servers can't handle it. So I'm gonna keep trying today. If it doesn't work, I can break out the other options tomorrow, since we have 48 hours.

Edit: tried Firefox: same result.

There are others having that same problem Sare. It could be that the beta sign up server is overloaded.

No problems with signing up, didn't have to disable my firewall or AV either.

Fingers crossed for all!!

Hopefully they can add more areas for the next beta, like Sylvari and Asura.

I assume they are not doing PAX East this year. I have not heard anything about it at all.
