    Are we supposed to get a confirmation email? I know they have our forum names in case but it seems a bit odd.
    Sorry forgot to include that. How stupid of me. You don't get any kind of confirmation email.

    E: Actually I have it in the FAQ but it's kind of hidden into a response.

    I signed for the beta... but I doubt my chances as I am not active member here...
    I don't think they check the forum activity. It seems to be mostly about your writing skills. Only speculation though.

    You all can just disregard this comment. Just testing something out.

    will codemasters use hours logged in game as part of the selection process?
    i personally have logged 325 hours in F1 2016 & 303 hours F1 2017 and counting 

    i hope i get picked
    Honestly, this is what they should do. I don't know how many hours I have in this game because I can't see on PS4 but I should be over 500h and counting

    That would be pain in the ass to do as you would have to go through hundreds of accounts to just check how many hours they have in the game, and what do they do if the account is hidden? I don't think developers get any kind of special powers to see through privacy options.

    Next to that hours in game doesn't say a thing about the abillity to give good feedback.

    If you use ABS or Traction Control, you are no longer a racing driver.

    If I get a few more questions about my driving style I think I headbutt someone.

    Current Question: How long was your "Why do you want to be a part of the beta" text?
    More questions can be asked in the comments, maybe I "highlight" one of them.
    Nine, maybe ten words long, I think?

    At this point I'm trying to see with what I get away with. Next year it's going to be just one word.

    I went for something a little more expansive, whilst still letting them know most things to date simply haven't been good enough.

    I told them that I would like to focus my testing on the online features and based on my playtime with the last games, this part really need most development + testing. After all the bug reporting I did on this forum I hope that I can now help with Beta testing too.

    When can we be expected to be emailed whether we got a place or not on the Beta?

    I don't think they have had a date published in any of the betas. I'm quite sure they will close the applications before announcing the testers though, so not yet I guess.

    The beta will be for famous youtubers or you will pick up with other interesant people? Not only for marketing but also for a better quality of tus saga without SC bugs or so.

    I came back at the right time then, good to hear about the beta announcement codies. I just remembered I have a friend who might want to play the beta to, what would I have to do to change the option from offline to both?

    I believe they can't change it themselves as it's a survey platform. You can try contacting their support about it, as sometimes Codies don't have time to check all the comments.
