Mm. I like this approach. Once invited, we have a chance to test and provide feedback that - at this point in time, might actually help! As someone whom professionally worked as a QA Tester, I find it very encouraging.
No invites for me - which is no surprise: for some reason I was never ever selected by Cryptic for such (last closed beta that I recall helping with was Mechwarrior Online's) but hey, less work for me! xD
Though one thing I do find unfortunate is the inability of seeing the early storyline of the Romulans. I wanted to participate in Branflakes' latest literary challenge but felt too much in the dark to start out something sound. Then, there's also the writing itself - Kestrel supposedly was heavily inspired from the Rihannsu books, and I was reading through those in preparation for playing the expansion's content.
Won't know if I get an invite or not since my email address is not correct on my account and I can't change it and customer service *cough* is a joke and hasn't done a damned thing despite lengthy exchanges...
