As this has been announced on a public forum, I don't break any NDA to tell you that the Age of Conan Fileplanet beta test will be starting late, at 24:00 GMT. As I live in the GMT+1 time zone, it will actually be May 2nd before the May 1st AoC stress test starts. For the US it will be afternoon to evening. Well, have fun playing, I'll be asleep and hoping that I'll get to play tomorrow. On the plus side, I'm on a 4-day weekend here. :)
[EDIT] Good news! I just got an e-mail from Funcom telling me that the NDA has been lifted for the beta. That means I will be able to write about my impressions soon. The mail also said the start time was 22:00 GMT, not 24:00, but I'll wait for tomorrow anyway.
