Wargaming.net's long awaited free-to-play World of Warships is finally making the move to Closed Beta. Closed Beta will start on March 12th, but the sign up procedure is a bit, shall we say, different. Where most games let you sign up well in advance of the actual beta test, World of Warships will follow more of a "first come, first served" path.
On March 12th, Wargaming.net will open a form on their website. Since this is a closed beta and not all participants can gain access, if you're interested in getting into the game you'll want to keep an eye out on the official site when the form goes live. Once Wargaming.net feels they have enough applicants then the form will be disabled and you won't be able to apply.
While I can certainly see the merits of this type of system for the developers (it keeps applications easy to manage and has a dedicated time they will be received) I also think it could be a bit of a disaster for gamers trying to enter in the "beta key lottery." Here's to hoping that the website's servers are up for the challenge.
March 12th also marks the end of the Non Disclosure Agreement so any of you testers lucky enough to get in will be able to post video and stream the game as you're testing.
