LEGO Minifigures Online
Funcom's LEGO Minifigures Online launched into open beta earlier this week, hoping players will stay a bit longer than they did in the last LEGO MMO. What else is new in the land of betas this week? Enjoy the complete Betawatch roundup below.

Open testing phase
Massively considers a game to be in open testing if it has open, public signups and plans for a server wipe before its official launch. Self-described "open beta" MMOs that have soft-launched with functioning real-money cash shops will not be listed.

Closed testing phase
We consider an MMO to be in closed testing if it features either future test signups or an ongoing semi-private beta/alpha that cannot immediately and freely be accessed by the general public. Some are restricted by NDAs. Games qualify even if the testing is limited to backers or pre-purchasers and if has an active cash shop as long as the signups are restricted.
