Guys, I know we're all super excited for beta drop... But it is also the time of year my favourite greggs pastry is dropped.

I think I may be just as excited for a festive bake in all honesty.

Hate to be negative folks but after reading Miles Twitter, I would say theres extremely little chance of the BETA coming out today - probably even this side of the weekend. He's done another Twitpoll & more importantly, has stated that people asking about the Beta are now being muted. If it was coming out today, he'd have sucked it up for the last few hours. Probably nearer to the truth is they tried to get it ready for today but felt it wasn't quite ready, so people asking him about it is probably leaving him a little raw. 

If I was a betting man, i'd say Monday at 4pm GMT....but what do I know

Last year, at least 2 times he said definitely NOT today on the beta, until he says it is 100% NOT coming out before Tuesday, we're all going to speculate, anyway as I've said no less than 3 times today, this thread isn't even about the beta for me any more

Get out with your reason and logic.

Yeah so? He muted people last year too, but last he tweeted at least twice that there was no beta that day, as I said until he or SI confirm there is no beta before Tuesday, we're sticking around, aren't we @kevhamster @gunner86 @toffee71 @Bakiano

Ok so next week then. Was hoping for a slightly earlier release but it means it's just not ready so no point in playing it in an unfinished state.

It's the way of the future and supposedly designed to kill epics challenge. 

 

It's god awful, unreadable and crashes on my PC if you have the temerity to open anything but steam.

FM Twitter account hasn't tweeted for 28 hours and 1 minute, means they are getting ready to drop the beta today. 

It's their fault we're here, saying turn on notifications, and all they've tweeted is the trailer and a retweet of said trailer.

In through the weekend if need be, though may have to play something else during the wait. But still able to help with the inane gibberish

That tweet should have come a few days later IMO. But it's just marketing stuff,to create a bit of hype so no issues with it.

Did you pass a Taco Bell? It's not even a little similar but I do enjoy a Taco Bell

I do like to get two number 9's, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45's, one with cheese, and a large soda when I go to Taco Bell

I did not.  My small town frowns upon such chain delicacies.   They begrudgingly have a McDonalds.

SI (and Miles) could avoid all the questions on when the beta is released if they wanted to. I am SOOOOOO tired of them whining every single year over people asking on SoMe.

Like... If you dont want people asking, why not just set a date? Theres going to be bugs anyway. 

Actually, SI's entire communication strategy is absurd in so many ways, I dont even know where to begin...

They don't set a date, because the aim is to have it out as early as possible.

That and they love this annual tradition of a thread
