The good news is the Beta will go live today (soon!), the not so good news is that due to some ongoing issues with Multi-crew it will be disabled until those issues are sorted out. See the full text from Ed Lewis below or here.
“First of all, I’d just like to say a huge thank you for your patience and understanding while the team continue to investigate a related set of issues with Multicrew in the 2.3 beta. We know that you’re all eager to get your hands on the new content, some of you asking for the patch notes to quench your thirst for juicy details.
“Unfortunately, this will require an extended period of time to investigate, fix and verify before we are able to make them live.
“In order to avoid keeping you waiting for the rest of the beta, the server wizards have been able to disable the Multicrew feature from the build meaning that we can make it live (without Multicrew) imminently. This will allow you to begin playing and testing all the other content today.
“Multicrew will still be making its way to the beta, we’ll keep you updated with news and information as soon as we can. The development team will continue their hard work and we’re expecting to have more news on Multicrew next week.
“We’re sorry for the delay and inconvenience. Once again, thank you for your patience, understanding and support.”
