With the beta signup only a week away, we’d like to take a few moments to let you know how the beta will work and how you can get involved in shaping the future of combat in RuneScape!

In recognition of the commitment of our long-term members, everyone who registers for the beta who has been a member for 12 or more consecutive months will have full, unlimited access to the beta for the entirety of its duration. In addition to this, we will be choosing another 50,000 of our most active and committed members from the remaining pool of registrants. If you’re not selected to participate though don’t worry, as ALL members will have temporary access every weekend from the 7th of July until the beta closes. Not a member yet? Signup now.

The registration process will be open from the 1st to the 19th of June to members only. On June 1st, we will be adding an item to all player inventories. Clicking on this item will open the Evolution of Combat website, from which you can sign up to the beta for the chance to help define one of the biggest updates in RuneScape’s history!

Invites will be sent out on the 26th of June, when the beta officially launches! Successful applicants will be able to log in to the beta worlds as soon as they receive their invite.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be updating the Evolution of Combat website with everything you need to know about the beta process, as well as revealing lots of exciting new features you can expect to see in the Evolution of Combat Update.

In the mean time, check out the second ever instalment of the Behind The Scenes on video, with an exclusive interview with Mod Mark (Lead Designer), Mod Chris L and Mod Rathe (Lead Developers for Combat)

I'll admit, I'm pumped for this combat revamp. It might be the biggest content update since RSC->RS2

Yeah, I agree. I don't like how you have to be a member for 12 consecutive months though, because I cancelled my subscription after the SoF update and just renewed it 3 days ago lol.

Great, don't think I've been a member consecutively for one year...tend to take breaks for rl reasons -.-

Btw, do you think they meant one year generally or will they only count the last year? So 12 months back from June 1?

Hey guys, you'll need to have 12 months of consecutive membership prior to the day you sign up. So, if you sign up today, you will need to have been a member since the 25th of May 2011.

If you post on the RSOF, it says how long you've been a member for under your avatar image.

I'll be getting in as soon as it opens. |^_^|

Just checked my date, just says June 2011. What's the betting that it won't count as 12 months if you subscribed after June 1st.

That's a neat way to thank consecutive members. They definitely deserve some praise on this. Yes, consecutive members will tend to keep paying, but you still don't want to piss them off. This was a good move, I think.

Still think it should be members who have X months on record and an active membership on the 1st.

Wouldn't do much good to them if you were a member for X months more than 3 years ago and only just came back from a hiatus.

Same here, 15th june... According to Mod Mat K, it's from the date you sign up for beta so it should count if I don't sign up before 15th?

good idea. still keep it at 12 months but it shouldnt be consecutive. that would allow a lot more people to acces the beta which means more bugs found and what not.
i dont see how restricting Beta testing to consecutive subscribers and 50k ppl is beneficial when it could easily have 200k + testing it

There's no promise that you'd stick around after coming back from a hiatus.
