Good Times Coming to an End

*weeps in her sadness* It's official, *sniffles* posted today by Nebu:
    The closed beta test is coming to an end. This Friday, October 29, at 3:00 PM PDT, the closed beta servers will go offline as we prepare to run another stress test. All active closed-beta accounts will remain active, and closed-beta testers will be receiving an email with instructions on what to do to continue playing in the stress test. We will post more information about the stress test in the days ahead, so please stay tuned to We also want to take this opportunity to thank the closed beta testers for their months of dedicated testing and hard work. Thanks to all of your suggestions and bug reports, World of Warcraft is closer than ever to being ready for launch! In unrelated news, we will be bringing the beta servers down today at 6:30 PM PDT for maintenance. We estimate that the maintenance will last for one hour, and when the maintenance is complete, we’ll bring the servers back online. Please keep in mind that this is an estimate; should anything unexpected arise, we’ll post further notice in the Server Status forum. Thanks for your patience.
*screams in agony*

No sniffling!!

Just means 1) we have a weekend or so to do other things 2) retail is that much closer, so we can play for keeps (and with friends).

Silver lining and all that. ;)
