MechWarrior Online was the subject of a small goof a few hours ago, resulting in a win for those on the beta waiting list.

Piranha accidentally sent a bunch of beta registrants an email intended only for those already granted entry to the closed testing, causing much hopeful confusion and subsequent disappointment.

To make up for the SNAFU, Piranha has granted beta access to everyone affected – so check your inbox, soldiers.
