There's a lot of questions and speculation circulating right now regarding the beta and when it might start, so here's some quick answers.
Has beta started yet? Can I play now? It hasn't started yet. The official start date to Closed Beta hasn't yet been announced, yet, so make sure to add us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates. The first round of invites will go out prior to the start date to give all testers ample time to download the client.
How do I sign up? You can sign up from this very page by clicking the button at the top that says "Beta Status". You can check on your beta status by clicking that button again at any time.
Does signing up guarantee me access to the beta? Depending on how long ago you signed up, there's a good chance you're in the beta, but nothing is guaranteed. So check back and like Taikodom on Facebook to keep current on beta news! The Closed Beta will be held in phases, with a round of invites going out to selected participants before each phase begins.
How do I get the game? There currently is no download link -- one will be made available to testers before the Closed Beta begins to give everyone ample time to get it. The link will be published here, on Facebook, Twitter, and emailed to those selected in each phase of the beta.
When do I get to play? If you sign up for beta, you will be able to download and play the game after you receive your invite and key. Still got a question? Check the FAQ or ask a new question in the forum Questions? thread.
