    No you are fine, no confirmations have been sent.

    If selected then you will receive notification by e-mail.

    Must be patient all, takes time to sort through them all.

    It is safe to assume that you are very likely to get selected given the fact that the amount of people that will be filling those forms are under 3000 which around the amount of followers they have in Facebook. If they need about 1000 testers then you have a one in 3 chance (33%) pretty damn high for a beta test. Maybe not for the first wave but for sure one of the waves.

    I think they will select a small group. Maybe some for certain roles... single player/multiplayer test etc. Balance and general feedback as well as bug reporting.

    Whew, it seems the whirlwind of posts has slowed down a bit, I'm glad everyone is excited for the beta though!

    Right? Every time I check my email I have a few messages labeled GSC game world and I freak thinking it's a beta invite, then my soul dies a little bit when I read it and see it's just telling me someone just posted to the forum.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up to get an invite this week unless they have a lot of manpower going through the applications.
    2 minutes per application (very conservative estimate) x 1000 applications (also conservative) = 33 man hours

    they can do it by random selecter too........

    They might if they have a way to check the information in the applications automatically, but I don't think they're going to do it that way. Remember that they need to get a variety of testers based on their testing needs, which is why people with non-windows machines will probably have the biggest advantage in getting into the beta.

    There is linux and osx support for C3 correct? I say they will get the most priority because when I helped run HoN testing we were ALWAYS short osx and linux testers.

    they just tell to computer to choose 100 people in age 16-20 with win7 and do it to fill all needs......

    Unless they made their own system or google docs has that built in it's not just "telling a computer to do something" and almost every application would be valid in one way or another anyways, as long as they checked yes on signing the NDA.
