Title: Signup thread for beta wave of "Sometime in 2016." Yellowshirts V2!
Post by: x4000 on October 01, 2015, 03:13:27 PM
The shirt system, in a TLDR format:

1. People sign up "to be in the beta" in general.  Right now we have had 254 people sign up overall, and as of the "blueshirt v2" wave, we have 153 of them in the game.

2. We are adding people to the game in waves every 0.5 to 1 weeks at this point.

3. We do it in waves in order to balance out tester fatigue, have a constant stream of new faces, and also because as the game evolves we can only get your first impression once.  So hence we have a backlog of players signed up for the beta, but they are not yet actually added to the game.

4. Signup here if you wish to specifically say you want to be in this next wave.  I'll make every effort to accommodate you, and I'll also pull from folks who don't sign up here depending on how things are looking at the time I do the next wave.  If you don't care what wave you're in, you can just sign up in the other stickied thread and you will not be forgotten!

5. TLDR: If you are wondering "when will I be sent a copy of the beta," the answer at this point is: after you either sign up for a particular wave, or I happen to choose you for a wave based on my semi-random, semi-sensible way of picking folks (I like new folks and Arcen veterans in each wave, etc).

6. Final note: If you're wondering "am I still on the list" or "will I ever be added to a wave," the answer is definitely YES! :D  But if you're worried and want to check, I won't be offended.

If for some reason you have specific scheduling constraints and you need to be in this week (or sooner even) if you're to take part, then just let me know (you can PM me to make sure I don't miss it) and I'll get you in sooner.  I'd rather have folks like that outside of a normal wave than miss their input all together.

Thanks everybody!

Hello! "Arcen newbie" reporting for duty! I've been waiting for this game since forever and I figured I would apply for the beta before its release gets pushed back again and I die of old age. :)

Cheers everyone!  Thanks for signing up.  Looks like the date will be tomorrow evening rather than today, because there are some other goodies that I want to have in place prior to you getting your hands on it.

Saw the post on twitter.  Posted in the other thread.  I'm happy to be added wherever, if you still need people. (Linux, though, 64-bit, Slackware.)

Post by: x4000 on October 06, 2015, 09:18:46 PM
The release date is being shifted back for the game, so I'm also pushing back this wave by 3 days.  Nobody here is too late!  It will be ready for you just in time for the weekend, and hopefully in such as state that you can play through all 4 acts rather than just 2.  Anyway, it will be a more complete experience either way.

I'm not sure if I've signed up for the next wave or not, but if not I'd like to be.

Hey guys, I've got some news that will be disappointing, but I hope you'll understand.  We're pushing the release of this game WAY back (about four months), but it's for very good reason.  Right now we're looking at a March 2016 release most likely, with the next wave of beta likely being in February 2016.  Please see here for further details: https://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,18040.0.html

I'm really sorry for any disappointment!

I'm also posting here. Please sign me up as a Beta tester.
By the way, even though I'm logged in, which I must be to post, if I follow any of "Tigers" links for Beta signup, it won't let me post because it doesn't consider me signed in.

I'm aware there's a lot going on in the Arcen community and that this game is probably not near development, yet I'd like to be added for beta testing at such a time as when you do begin it. I have pretty extensive knowledge on 4x titles as well as Arcen titles too. Thanks!

Greetings,

A newcomer here, although familiar with most games done here. I'm interested in signing up for the beta whenever the chances are possible.
I couldn't reply on the other thread, something related to a database error...  ??? But I heard of the news recently, wish you the best of luck.

I'm a reformed game developer interested in taking a deep look at whatever you have and giving detailed feedback. In other words, I think I'd make a good tester. :-)
