Due to excellent progress in the private beta, the public beta will open today instead of on the 1st of October as previously announced.
The beta is operating on the main game server at:
Updates on the game and all further communications will be given through the ingame systems (motd and beta forums) as well as in the beta channel - #beta. We ask that when playing the beta you be in #beta at all times.
Remember the purpose of the beta is to test things so that we can have a good round 12, of course it is allowed to have fun at the same time :)
On a another note keep sending in those skins so we can have a sexy as well as playable round.
