The Old Republic Taunts Those Wanting to Test


Did you sign up to beta test Star Wars: The Old Republic? Chances are you got an email last night taunting you with a survey intended for people currently in the test. Obviously something messed up, as it looks like just about everyone who ever signed up to test the game received the email thanking them for testing and asking them to take a fun survey about the beta.

Here’s what the email said:

We hope you are enjoying participating in the Game Testing Program and want to thank you for helping shape the most anticipated MMO to date.

We’ve posted a fun short survey for game testers, and the results have been really interesting so far. Answer a few questions and see what your fellow testers are thinking. After the survey, hit the forums to talk about your experience or get gameplay tips.

There’s been no word from BioWare about what happened, outside a little mention of it on their Facebook page and they were aware that it happened. As you’d probably expect, the official forums exploded over it.
