Exactly. The beta should have begun, according to their original plans, in December - and they are still in Alpha. 

This means that we won't likely see the game released before April/May, or even later.

Even if Alpha began in say, hypothetically, in October or september last year, you won't know because there is NDA.

 

So you see, you are assuming a lot there.

 Exactly, also alphas are generally done by in house paid testers, not the public.

Chances are this is just a French localisation alpha.

Games magazines (PC Gamer) have already started Neverwinter beta promotions, so I doubt beta for the English client is more than a month away.

If this is a new stage and not localisation, then it chaps my hide a bit, being someone who preordered TL2 for the Neverwinter beta.  I feel like they are stalling to let us in.

Actually, they agreed its an alpha. Head to official en forums to register for a chance at 2 alpha keys. 1100+ people have already post for it - the forgotten forums have a stampede!

But it does seem alpha is in final stages and beta is less than month away.

They never ever promised you day 1 access remember?

 

They specifically said you may only get a chance to be in close beta in final phase.

Yeah thats what I was getting at sorry, people seem to think that it has only just entered Alpha, which I doubt looking at the state of the game from expos. I think beta will be just around the corner. Don't think we will get more than 5 classes to start with, being F2P I think they will be selling the other classes and releasing them regularly.

Seeing as how the public use "beta" as "free demo" is it any wonder companies start using "alpha" in place of beta. I don't know, maybe they just want some testing to happen?

Oh! Classes are free. Content and classes will never be charged. Though they won't show all the classes in alpha/beta so they can surprise people in open beta I think.

 

Races are assumed to be free but they have not explicitly said so. Hence they can kinda go back on their words.

 

But classes and content will never be charged has been repeated again and again from all the developers top and down.
