Had the topic generically been: Neverwinter Closed Beta Invite! with the content of the post directed only to Lifetime subscribers, a lot more readers might have cried foul. By having presented it as a Lifetime Perk this draws more attention from the player's for whom the announcement is intended.
I don't expect anymore perks from my lifetime status (if Gold subscribers receive more distinction I will simply benefit as well). So I appreciate this invitation in the spirit in which it is intended. Should I find I'm available to participate I may take Cryptic up on it.
