“You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war.”

Napoleon Bonaparte

 

As we campaign together through the closed beta process, the faces of both allies and enemies on the fields of battle have become familiar. Whether your nemesis is a commander of Greek Cavalry that always seems to find your exposed flank, or the Roman artillerist whom is a master of strategic encampment, familiarity breeds both comradery and a grudging respect.

 

Commander, we have determined that now is the time to broaden the field of combatants by announcing Total War: ARENA’s first Open Weekend event. Beginning this Friday, November 3rd at 7:00 am PT and concluding on Monday, November 6th 2:00 am PT, all players with a Wargaming Account will be able to download, install, and play Total War: ARENA.

 

As we move beyond the first phase of closed beta, this next step is important; testing our capabilities to handle more players and opening ourselves up to additional points of feedback. We are honored that you have made this journey with us thus far, and look forward to continuing to prove our mettle alongside you on the fields of honor.

 

In addition to this being an open weekend for all players,we’re also going to be running a bonus experience event. This event is for our Closed Beta players and any new players!
 
UPDATE: For the duration of the open weekend the following bonuses are in effect:
 
  • First win of the day (per Commander) – 300% bonus experience
  • All other victories (per Commander) – 200% bonus experience.
 
These bonuses are additive to already existing Premium bonuses.

I can't wait to see the instant queue pops at low tier.

 

It's too bad they're all gonna get clubbed by people with T10 commanders though.

Sure we can again teach those 12 year olds not to friendly fire or running flank solo with 3 units of archer.

So how do you actually download the game during 'open' weekend?   All the links still take you to the registration / application button.  Creating a service ticket didn't seem to get a reply either.

You need to install the Wargaming Game Center client(launcher) and install the game from there.

Can't play.  Will not allow play without anti-cheat software that does not like my work software.
