We had an email saying its nearly here.
Nobody really knows how to get into it, but it seems you have to at least spend a decent amount of money on diamonds.Awesome reply - could you maybe add the email or details about what "royalty" program you are talking about?
a closed beta on the open beta serverCould also be an announcement for the next era. For SAAB Inno did a closed beta where some players got the chance to test it. This was done because there are only very few Beta accounts that are already in the last era and can provide feedback.
For a new culture I doubt Inno will do a closed beta as everybody in the open beta can test it as well and provide feedback.
there was also a closed beta (= only some selected players are allowed to get it) for SAAB on the open beta serverThe closed beta was on a completly different server.
