Updated information on last beta weekend event[edit]

Inserted the following text: 'Infernal Wurms' also risen up from the floor in all towns and outposts, killing players in the area.

This is from personal experience. Woke up at 7am GMT to witness the closing of the last beta event :-) It wasn't just lions arch, either. The tomb of the primevale kings (Pre-halls) also got destruction unleashed upon them.

More info needed[edit]

It would be nice if someone who was actively present at the end of the BWE where Gwen layed siege to Lion's Arch could write some stuff about it. I wasn't there at the end of the event unfortunately. -- CoRrRan (CoRrRan / talk) 21:21, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

I was only present at the last BWE (April 15th 2005 until April 17th 2005) which ended with giant worms popping out of the ground everywhere killing the players.
The Gwen BWE might have been the one before that, but I'm not sure. Oh and in the famous "Thriller-Gwen" movie (with the sync dance of 6 necromancers) Gwen also said:
  • "Ok, <player name>, time to die.",
  • a line I can't quite read "...y, ...y marry me, I pick you, <player name>." (seems to be a nursery rhyme or something)
  • and "My name is Gwen, and I don't liike yooou."

First Betas[edit]

I remember betas of this game before the onces cited above, think they took place in 2003. Can anyone confirm ?

There was E3 for everyone before the beta weekends, but I am pretty sure that no (open) beta took place before that. --Xeeron 15:27, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

IS there anyway to find out what guilds were created during the beta events as there are many claiming to be, and i dont know wether to believe them or not, this could technically be classed as duping surely? from spark  :)

Does it really matter if they were or not? Jink 19:40, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Gold and Exp awarding random players in Ascalon[edit]

I vaguely remember Gold and Exp 'raining' in Ascalon and awarding random players there in the Outpost but I forgot which Beta Event it was... Oh well.... Fun times... XD

I think that was the last beta event, but I'm not certain. 70.178.225.155 15:58, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Possible gallery source[edit]

There are some screenshots and videos of this event here. I thought it might be of interest to some users. -Chieftain Alex 22:48, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
