Just wanted to let you know that as of today, December 12 (SegaDawg's birthday!), the beta is no longer live. Games For Windows LIVE can no longer be accessed through the beta build, meaning that you won't be able to play any opponents through the beta.
We want to thank you all for your tremendous help through this long (and arduous) process. It was in no way smooth and our apologies go out to everyone that participated and experienced less-than-stellar (or in some cases, just plain untenable) game performances on their machines. We wish we would have been able to get a patch out to you, but as messaged elsewhere, our priorities were with trying to get the retail game finished and polished.
We hope you're enjoying the retail version of Universe At War, and we're now going to lock down the beta section of these boards and open up some new sections. Thanks once again to everyone who participated -- your feedback really did help us identify a lot of bugs and eliminate them for the final version.
