Earlier today David Bass (Senior Community Director on Star Wars The Old Republic), announced Guild Beta Testing in the official site’s forums. The only requirement to be considered for testing is to have ten or more guild members. This will be giving more players a chance to be invited into the beta, seeing as there will also be “Beta Weekends” coming in September.
An excerpt from the announcement:
“We are very pleased to announce the start of Guild Testing for STAR WARS: The Old Republic! This program will allow guilds to be considered as a whole for inclusion in the Game Testing Program, allowing us to gather important data regarding how guilds play The Old Republic, as well as how organized groups deal with various mechanics and systems in the game. The program is already underway, as we’ve invited the first wave of guilds into testing, however we’ll be adding more over the coming weeks alongside the general Game Testing invites.”
