No it's not starting yet:

With the deployment of the update, your current game progress will be wiped as was mentioned yesterday, meaning your ships and stats on your profile will be reset to zero. We are wiping it all, so once the Open Beta begins (at a later date), everybody starts on a relatively equal footing. This update does not quite signal the start of OBT. We'll have a start date for you very soon. Be sure to read up on the Beta Rewards in yesterday's article.

my system meets the minimum requirements for this game but my internet but my internet never seems to get over 700-800k the game calls for a 1000k minimum.

I stopped my install rather than waste bandwidth on something I cannot play. Is the game unplayable with lower than 1000k or would I just be a poorly performing captain (due to lag).

I can for instance play League of Legends with no problem but MechWarrior runs to poorly to be functional for me or enjoyable for my team mates (a real hoot for opponents however).

War Thunder (warplanes) ran fine. I suck but It ran adequately.

The game is actually more playable with lag than many other games, because it's not as twitch based.

Well nine months after DoD telling me this I finished loading the game. I have seen almost no lag at all that I can notice. I notice that it states somewhere that the game will optimize the load for best performance on your computer and then u can customize from there.

I see no need to tweak anything. Graphics are more than sufficient, game play is smooth.....what's not to love? With me running minimum requirements this MMO runs smoother than most games regardless of listed requirements.

Wish I had loaded a little earlier. There are bonuses( experience and currency) available after the last patch as compensation for a long download. Unfortunately I have no ship above tier three. It takes using a tier four ship or above to use all the bonuses. It looks like I can get there with two days remaining on the bonuses.

I'll be buying the USS Phoenix a never built paper design scout cruiser.

A big switch from the more durable (relatively) brawler the USS St. Louis with many shorter ranged 6 inch guns. The Phoenix will have longer ranged guns and some short ranged torpedoes (which the St Lou lacks). Most importantly the Phoenix is a bit more than 50% faster than the St Louis. It take a major change in my game style to use this ships potential.

There are bonuses available at all levels or play and ships for the next 3 days so even new players can benefit. Game does have a long download (at least at my level of bandwidth).
