well i was thinking maybe it would be two weeks. the first week for previous testers then they let everyone else in. a week off then early access.
But why would you give previous testers more time than new testers? It's not a reward, testing the game (well for some it is), it's a test. More people at this point would be better overall as that's extra people to find lame bugs and glitches that the current testers (i.e. Everyone who's just playing the game) haven't come across yet. I personally would like to see a larger scale test now, as the game's a month and a week away...I don't wanna see day 2 patches and roll backs at the starting gate...it's generally bad news.
Another thing, that pre-week launch for preorders is nonsense. What's the point of a launch date if you're gonna drop it a week early for people who paid in advance? If you released the game a week early, you'll sell just as many copies as if you waited the week extra. It's just so....underhanded sounding. "Buy me early and you can play me a week before anyone else..." When retailers do that, they get fined a large amount of money for copyright laws.
