(and I'm garenteed in as I played beta1) :)

correct.


This quote below from their official FAQ would seem to indicate that you are not actually guaranteed to get into the second beta just because you got into the first... I've highlighted the "if you are selected" part.

Q: I played the first beta, can I play again?
A: You will need a brand new code to play, but it is possible to play again if you are selected.

Bata?

It's beta.
Bee-ta. It's things like that which make me dislike Americans :p

In US English (at least from where I am), it is pronounced bay-tah

correct.

I was in the first beta and I didn't even know there was a second beta until stumbling upon this thread.

It's EA. It wouldn't matter if it was the best game ever made, there'd still be a lot of hate going on.

Maybe it's just because its a demo/beta? Maybe in final there will be bigger maps.

Disappointed I didn't get in, EA guys on twitter gave out a few codes but they went instantly.

Where did you preorder? I preordered the dvd version from amazon and they automatically sent me the key for the second beta. They sent me a code for the first beta before that one happened also.
