Not saying I got an invitation to beta, because that probably breaks some kind of NDA.

I AM saying that given my luck, if I did get an invitation, it'd probably only be for the weekend that:
A) Zelda comes out
B) Mario comes out
C) My XBONE arrives

I can neither confirm nor deny I got one as well. If I did, I am going to be doing almost nothing but ESO this weekend.

Our situation may or may not be incredibly similar, especially if you substitute My Zelda edition 3DS XL arriving for your XBONE arriving.

If I did get the key, I'll try to grab the name Mongolio (failing that, Bjorna or Tahli). I am assuming there is but one server.

Bretons have always been my favorite race, so I'm likely to go Daggerfall. Also, given the number of people on my FB feed who broke the NDA that they apparently didn't remember agreeing to, I'm guessing it's a stress test weekend.

And while I have no XBoxOne or other gaming goodies, I do have a 15 page research paper due on Monday.

Wow, they don't make it easy to figure out how to log into your account if you forgot to start the beta client download. I had to click the verification link in the email they sent back when I set up the account to get to Account Management. There are no links to this on their main site that I can find.

O well. I started the download this morning. It was at 3% about 5 minutes later, so I'm not worried about it being done before I get home for lunch. I'll make sure all patches are run during lunch so I'm ready to sit in the logon queue after work...

As far as the NDA, there WAS an NDA we had to agree to. However, this late in development, there is probably no need to worry about the small fish on Facebook or other social media. Mainly the big game reviewers and critics, I'd bet.

I think they've already had a stress test. I was given a key months ago for a test but could never download the client.... Guess I just won't have that unique pet or w/e it was they gave away.

I've always played a wood elf archer/thief in every game. I see no reason to change.

I'm not overly impressed so far. I've gotten 2 classes to 4 and 1 to 5. I think F2P games are better. This one is a purchase the game, pay for subscription AND a cash shop. I doubt I will be playing this one at launch.

Agreed. I've actually been considering returning to WoW with the new expansion...

I made it through about 15 minutes before returning to Mario/Zelda. At this point, an MMO would have to do something amazing to pull me in, and this definitely wasn't it.
