It will ve interesting to see if they begin beta prior to the Verticle Slice. If it is assumed, as by many so far, that this is a largely complete game with most features enabled it is not a stretch of anyone's imagination to think it might.
Many betas begin before that stage since the companies start testing when the first area is complete - like Tortage in AOC or the starting island in EQII or the first planet in SWG.
Now if the Verticle slice is just the first area - then Beta would start soon after that.
Then again we must remember that this is all a projection - and timelines change.
But this definitely sounds like promising news - regardless.
Just as you when you were a child and pulled the covers over your head to protect yourself from the demons that harassed you in the night, refusing now to believe they are out there watching you won't stop them anymore than than that mere cloth shield would have if they really wanted to harm you. That's why I'm here.
