There is no codes being given out yet just an email to say you got selected.

Good to know codies is interested in offline only stuff cause that is all I mentioned an interest in on the sign up.

Is it possible that any more closed beta invites will be given out over the coming days, or is that it?
Depends if they get the correct feedback I suppose. A second wave of invites did happen last year but it was during the beta program. Like others have pointed out, some will have applied to play the game thinking it will give them a competitive advantage. It won't, and I suspect those players may not put in the hours or may only come up with specific issues.
Fingers crossed then. I only really play singleplayer modes anyway and I’ve got a pretty long play-time on all codemasters F1 games, so I’ve been able to pick up on the smaller issues the games have as well.

Hi all,

Hi @haitch40, in regards to the Beta forum sevtion, I’m in the middle of finalising a few bits before I open the doors. I’ll let you know when you have access.

Well I will try to help with MP stuff if that is the majority of the beta but I made it clear in my sign up application that I am an offline only player and would like to help improve stuff related to that.

Maybe other factors are relevant like previous beta testing and the platform (PC).

You could sign up for Single Player, Multiplayer or both. I can imagine the focus ls on Multiplayer since there were issues in 2017. I do hope however that the final outcome will be much closer to what we have tested than last year when there was a huge difference in gameplay, handling, ffb in the beta compared to the actual released game. Beta experience was better.

Can imagine they probably selected a random number of people from each platform and also a mix of offline and online players. Feel gutted for those that weren’t lucky enough to be selected. I guess there’s still some hope if there’s been some issues with emails not being received though

Seems like I was not chosen.
Shame, I really thought this year I would finally be selected. :(

Congrats to everyone who received the confirmation and I hope you dedicate as much time as you can into this opportunity to test and give feedback.  :)
Do not misuse this opportunity.
This is the type of post I like. No rant, just positivity. :)

Really why is that.so each time I say absolutely anything you immediately jump on me.
I knew you were going to say this even though it wouldn't make sense.

senna94f1 said:
You were the one saying I wasn't suitable for the beta.its not your call to say that as that's baised. It's almost like you are trying to bait people and incite others to your personal cause. 
Well I mean it doesn't SOUND like it even at now considering you become angry for no reason at Codies. Waiting is not a reason to be angry. You're not entitled to anything except a working game.
Who said anything about being angry not me ,I am perfectly relaxed, 
its you again making complete rubbish up again ,this is a pubic forum and you've attacked me at every opportunity ,I sent you a private message asking you to stop this several days ago, you have been reported ,

Please sea note this is not about the beta or codemasters ,so that's make that clear, I will buy full game regardless ,
it's about you attacking me ,

Hi all,

I know that emotions are running high at the moment and that some of you are upset at not getting in. For those that have gotten in, be nice to those that have not been selected. Don’t forget, we are watching your conduct on the forums. For those that have not gotten in, thank you so much for taking the time to apply and for wanting to help. The beta has limited places, so sadly we can’t invite you all.

It's not worth going through complaining at all the people who are complaining that's not gonna do anything.

So does this mean we'll get beta codes soon, or we just get access to the forum section soon? ;)

Thanks CM and Faya for atleast being communicative with us. I have been at many other gaming communities where the entire game staff/devs ignore their loyal users. I might've not been selected for the beta, but I am not salty, I am just thankful for even HAD the oppertunity to sign up to possibily help improve a game series I love. And I can understand the possible frustration among many people, but let's be fair, CM do communicate with us, unlike many other gaming companies, so all I can say, is thanks, for giving us an oppertunity to be heard. :)

And good luck to those who got into the beta, please put your best efforts and time into it, and don't share or leak please, it's in the best interest for both you as tester and CM that it is "closed". :)

Seriously? Don't take it personally. Many of us were just not the right profiles they were looking for :) Maybe they looked for more active profiles on this forum? Or someone that has a better online history in previous F1 games. Let's trust them and the decisions they make :)

I am a professional in the QA industry. My daily job is to be a test manager (not for games, but for financial institutions). I love my job so much that I do testing for free during my days off as well (like this Beta). I still did not get a beta key. No hard feelings.

Still, I'm so much looking forward to F1 2018 when it gets out. 2018 is the last year with such fast cars because of changes in technical regulations starting next season.

We are going to look back at the 2018 season like we look back at the 2004 season. Excluding Monaco, all the races this far has been top quality.

why we cant have an open beta and if you want expirienced guys to test the beta why dont you let them stream the beta so everyone can tell his thoughts ?
Codemasters are doing a closed beta because they want feedback that can help them to improve the game. If it was an open beta, a lot of people would use it as a free-trial. Codemasters filter through who will give them the most feedback to prevent people from using it as a free-trail.

I know several people that got in the Beta just because they want to play F1 2018 before everyone and "sweat" it.

I don't expect much out of the beta test. You know why? many ones chosen are random drivers who only care about one thing - having a head start on the game and its exploits. Beta should be managed differently. League owners should be included regardless, especially top leagues like AOR

They would really test the game, not identify exploits for use after launch.

Mark my words above. It is like every year. 2017 beta did not improve the game or remove glitches/exploits/bugs - 7 patches in 4 weeks if you remember. Where was all those beta testers to identify such huge amount of issues. Also, why would someone wanting to have an advantage exploit report that especially if it would give him an advantage

One example: Look at leagues around. Most drivers in Sauber car find it easy to drive and score high points and wins!! This has been since F1 2014 and no one reported that. Gearbox ratios in a Sauber are similar to a Mercedes. Check it out yourself and you will see that such a glitch/exploit for equal cars online make cars unequal in terms of performance

Happy beta testing!!!

Look, all hope isn't lost at this current moment, last year the beta was released in phases, with more beta codes being given out each phase, so there may still be hope in you, I too am upset that I didn't get a code considering I admin the top teir of a league but for now we must rely that the drivers who got the beta will do well, people may get recommended into the beta also so there are still some chances.

lol. I can't remember how much I can say, but it definitely improved the game.

Wait league owners? Owners know about the game as much as a normal player, or even less in some situations. Just because they started the league, doesn't mean they are the best to give feedback.

That's quite a lot of updates considering many of the updates were major.

Inviting only league racers would be quite a stupid move imo considering that F1 games are supposed to be for everyone...

E: I made this message only to tell people that you're painting a wrong picture about some parts.
