There are over a million people signed up on annual pass that will have to be given beta invites. Its insane to let them all in at once, and worse yet, its counter-productive to testing.The vast majority of them are just going to look at it to say they got an early sneak peak, play for a week at most and go "this is buggy, I don't get to keep any of this, why am I wasting my time on it?" and go do something else.Thats why semi-public testing like this is done in waves, because they know they'll get a big upswing for the first week, and then it'll die down to almost nothing but the actual hardcore testers, and then they'll have to bring more people in.If you've never beta tested a game, I'm sure this will be a new, horrible experience for you. For the couple of days it takes you to go "Dude, this sucks, thats the third time this week they reset my character!". Vast majority of people just have no concept of what beta TESTING is. They think its a sneak peak at the game, not, you know, WORK.
