... closed beta. the doors are closed, only select people are allowed passed the body guards to get in to play the game (aka, invite only)...
... open beta... guards are gone, and anyone who wants to come in can... this scares me to no end... the amount of idiots and overall jerks that have the potential to get into such a great game can ruin a lot of the fun (no this isnt directed at you, just the jerks and idiots that are probably going to play and ask for powerlevels [kinda hard to do], and then ask a question every min or less [note each person does this, so, chat is now flooded]) depending on the flow of idiocy and jerks on the open beta, that may be the time i 'take a break' from the game.
People tend to screw around a LOT more when they dont have to pay for it.
