As I was away for nine months taking care of my father (who passed away late July) and now recovered and moving forward... I did receive that first email asking if I wanted to be a tester, but of course I couldn't... Are my chances now to become a beta tester when that opens, gone? I certainly hope I could still be considered for that. I think this is a great game coming into being here and I am an experience beta tester to boot. I will have moved into my new place by December so I would be ready and able and excited to be part of Beta.
