    Default Beta Question

    Hey everyone, I pre-ordered this game a while back and played in the last Beta. Since then I had to reformat my computer and I figured i'd just be able to re-download the rift launcher. However, I no longer have that option. Is this something I should contact Trion about or do I just need to wait for a new invitation?

    Hrm, you may have to wait for an invitation. Did you check the main site for any other place to download the client?

    You'll need to wait for the Beta 6 invitation before you can download and patch the client. That should be happening either today or tomorrow.

    You can download the client from http://trionworlds.custhelp.com/app/...etail/a_id/26/ and install it, but the problem is that you can't PATCH until you're invited for a beta event. The client is only 8mbs.

    Sure you meant 8 GB not MB.. The download is about 4gigs.

    I did mean 8mbs. The client is just a small little thing, the patch is 8gbs and at release it'll probably be a 12gbs patch.

    This game is only 7.5 GB so no way should we expect a 12gb patch.

    The thing is, right now we don't have access to all content. Remember that it was only like 6gbs during beta 3 but then at beta 4 we had to download an extra 1.2gbs for the 2 new zones?
    I'm guessing it'll be some extra content to download for the all the zones, all the character models for the lvl 50 dungeons and so on.
