Two days of more testing eh? Interesting how Bioware has been splitting these beta sessions into very small increments of time, likely to test very specific features before putting up a new build. Beta players have been reporting on forums and message boards that the game still has many issues to be addressed, and we'll have to see if the final product ends up being a true gem, or just another clunker like Star Wars Galaxies.
