Yeah, someone I know got picked and the first thing he did was post all over the place announcing it. So much for the NDA, but that's what happens when they pick kids.
Dosen't suprise me, I've put my name in for ~30 beta tests and have not once been selected which is a bummer.
if you put in multipul requestd to beta you void out your 1st request. so if you filled it out 30 times your most recent app is the one currently on the list. All others are void.
I didn't put in 30 for FFXIV, I've tried with about 30 different games (mostly all MMORPGs).
ohhh i see thats too bad : ( well if you got FFXIII you have a chance to beta XIV if you got a code with your game : ) or you can try to beta the PC if you dident get a code. After the game is in beta there will be like 10 servers and 50k people to beta so you never know you might have a good chance this time : )
