Even though this is a "release candidate", it is still beta. I doubt you are going to see anything of permanence until the game is officially released.
And possibly for a while after that. The Metaverse for GC2 was up and running when the game went public, but the scores were wiped about a week later. I had the #1 position for a day during that time, but lost it when the scores were wiped (which is why I remember)
