Beta or not to Beta?

Do we know how long the Beta last or when the actual release be?  I met one gentleman that stated that since the release he has been playing non-stop since the release of the online, only because he takes Betas seriously and wants to find all the bugs and glitches so he doesn't have to face them in the release.  Yeah, Right!    Anyway, at one point he asked if any of us in the group knew whether or not the beta would just shift straight into the game or would there be a reset and everyone starts over.  I think that is a good question considering the amount of time players have invested, but I also know that in Betas, that they are just there to let players find the breaks so they can fix before the actual release.  So do we know when that is?

The only announcement they made about wiping player data was on the beta release notes.  They simply said that they may have to.  .....nothing more, nothing less.  

The RDO beta is a work-in-progress beta.  It unlike most of the ones we see on console where the product is essentially complete but the company releases it to help promote the game and stress test servers (usually lasting just a few days).  .....with few changes being made once final. 

I have a feeling RDO will be in beta for several weeks.  The game is still in development which could be good news for us if R* pays attention to the feedback they have been receiving from fans.  The bad news is that we may not have a complete online experience for a while.

Whether they have to wipe the server data or not will likely depend on what updates they have to make, exploits they discover, etc.  It may simply not be possible to keep the data depending on what they have to alter in the process.  The thing is that this is an open beta where everyone who is participating are customers.  I don't see R* wiping data unless they really have to.  ....and even then, maybe it's only certain aspects that require being reset.

I'd be amazed if they did a total wipe - many folk would not be happy with that at all.  They might put some caps in, or remove money or something, but I'm confident there will be at least some crossover, like challenges and awards or certain amount of levelling, or some special beta reward or something.

Well, Rockstar just posted another update today on Twitter and this time to address the concerns of a stat / progress reset.  As some of us mentioned, R* doesn't want to reset everyone if they can help it.

Hopefully they continue with this kind of feedback to their fans.  .....and here's hoping that economy update is able to make it out this week.
