View Full Version : Third Beta Stage Delayed

I waited a bit to make this announcement as I know it's going to upset many of you. But it must be made. We're going to need to push the third beta back two weeks, tentatively.

In addition to time stolen by a couple staff absences and further progress with our publisher, we've run into a couple problems and just aren't ready to push forward. We have also decided not to go ahead and launch with what we have as there are some recent bugs that really need to be hammered out first.

We are really sorry and hope that you'll find the beta well worth the wait. To sweeten up this announcement, we will be upgrading all fourth stage testers and we also have a number of new things to show you these next two weeks to make the wait a little shorter. :) Is there anything you'd like to see more on? I know there's a lot of anticipation for guilds right now.

One question will there be guild support in the beta?

Damn, that's really too bad. Oh well, guess I'll anticipate the BETA even more now. :p

I myself am very intrested in any editor updates, but any information at all is great really.

Not in the Closed Beta. Maybe in the Open Beta, it's not confirmed yet.

I myself am very intrested in any editor updates
That's my favorite part of DOF! ^_^ There's a big teaser/preview coming soon which will be kind of like a level editor behind-the-scenes tour of what went into the design of some of our most popular towns as well as including sneak peaks at some of our scripters' side projects and the new elven and orc towns. :)

Well I'm glad things are still moving and there has always been a good delivery of information compared to some companies I've done testing with. Though I was excited to start 10 days ago I don't think anyone should have a problem with a delay.. if its needed its needed and thats that, simple enough to me.

I wouldn't mind some more information/screenshots of the realistic sides of things.. I'm a atmosphere/landscape kinda guy so for instance the screenshots where you see people battling and their are deer just standing around, do they do that or do they scurry away terrified? I'll think of some more things but thats the first that popped into my head

Other than that, like always Alex, thanks for keeping us in the loop on whats going on :)

They'll run away. Deer are naturally afraid of orcs and men.

Won't be able to do an FF as they will draw to an end very soon as our publisher takes over all DOF marketing. But you could see a new dev blog sometime in the near future. :)

AAR=After Action Report

No more FFs? noo. I will miss them. So you are close to announcing a publisher?

GPS51
09-01-2010, 05:53 PM
Well I hope you guys announce a publisher when you take away our FF's! Oh and AAR is basically a campaign or series of battles with screen shots and write ups of what went on during the battles. Also some people turn them into epic sagas complete with extraneous dialogue between created characters etc. It's as close as you can get to playing the real thing without doing it.

Is there anything you'd like to see more on? I know there's a lot of anticipation for guilds right now.

besides guilds i would like to know and see more about magic. like sreenshots maybe of a wizard preparing a big fireball or armageddon:D and maybe some more details about differences between the 3 races magics and spells. for instance are there a race where the magic are heavily focused on buffs? and how are spells obtained? just a full round up on the magic stuff.

and maybe get a better sence of how big the entire DoF world is. like a world map.

and i do apologize if these have already been shown at some other FF.
i havent found it yet though.

3 races magics and spells
Magic isn't race-oriented ;) There's Air, Earth, Fire and Water. And then for each individual spell-caster there's Light and Dark affiliations, each with their own bonus effects on spells.
Here's a media thread showing some images of two spells in the Fire School, with details: Weekly Media - July - Week 3 (Magic) (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=740&highlight=magic)
There's not much on magic, because it's a nice little secret that Reverie has been harbouring. I'd like them to keep it this way...

?? That's ridiculous. They've already made up for it for allowing 4th beta testers to be in 3rd, and that's a lot more than you could ask for. Could you really be that ignorant, not to want to pay Reverie a miserable $50 for all their hard work?

It's called sarcasm that why i included the smiley face, btw is that the official price of the final product, if so very reasonable

It is what it is. I'm not complaining. They have done a fine job thus far and our job is to further improve their product. They could have just as easily not let most of test at all and that would be that. I will wait patiently for them to okay moving forward in the testing. Keep up the good work guys.

So by "third stage beta" this is meant to be...

1) Closed Beta with invite only?
2) Open beta/load testing?
3) Other?

From what I can tell this is the only open-realm with walkable map RTSMMO in production and I'm looking forward to it.

Steel vs Power.. interesting, brings back a memory of when I was a young lad fighting in the hills of land now long forgotten (I was hit on the head and have totally forgotten where it was). Anyways! I came across an Orc and Human in a bit of a scuffle and the human had a steel longsword while the orc had a wooden club with spikes on it. The orc was taller and stronger than the human but that did not sway the human at all. It was almost as if I had only blinked when the orc was swinging wildly trying to club the other in the head. The weight of the massive weapon was approximately the same weight as the longsword in comparison to how strong each of them were. The human dashed about and poked / proded the orc but the orc kept swinging, almost in a tornado type fashion. Eventually I got bored of watching this foolish back 'n forth bickering/swinging and walked away so I never did see who won. Where was I going with this again?

On a side note, its almost 3rd stage beta time! (It's so amazing how I can seamlessly slip in and out of character like I'm a professional actor.. typer.. guy)

Just a quick update - we are aiming to start CB3 sometime later next week. Look out for beta e-mails early next week. Full announcement will follow shortly.

And as a bonus to our Wave 1 and 2 testers - Kingdom Wars and other CB3 content will be added to the client towards this weekend.

Yes, we apologize for the delay and do appreciate your eagerness and patience. Kingdom Wars is an absolute blast so I hope you'll all find it well worth the wait. Kon and our scripters did a ton of polishing on it these last couple of weeks and we're just waiting to fix some updater issues which we've been struggling with for a while now.

So.. stage 3 is nearly here! On a serious note, do we need to put in a certain amount of hours for testing? I know that sounds weird, but say we only have the time to put in approximately 5 hours a week, or say 30 minutes.. or even 25 hours.. are you looking for people who can spend a lot of hours? or.. does it even matter? ;)

I'd say that the quality of bug reports is the most important. I'm not official by any means so take everything as hear say but go with quality. I don't think RWS is looking for people to put in 25 hour weeks.

No, its not a job(I don't think they have you log hours in betas). Like GPS51 said, its more of the quality of the bug, but like any testing I would post any bugs I ran into.

You can play as long as you like or don't like to.

I can't speak for RWS as a company, but I'd like everyone to keep in mind this isn't a demo, it's a beta. If you crash, submit a report, if you see a bug, report it. It's not a job, that's true, but beta testing is meant to increase the quality of the game. The more you report and the more detailed those reports are - the better the end product will be. Don't do yourself a disservice or take for granted the opportunity to get your hands on the game early.

With that said, beta or demo, I do hope you all really enjoy the game once you do get it. I still love playing it after the better part of a year of working here.

Guys, come on.
You really think when they say two weeks they mean EXACTLY TWO WEEKS? I'm pretty sure not.

Show some respect. Stop pressuring them. Let them do their thing.

Common answer for all beta related questions in all games:
"When does the beta come?"
"When it's done".

Just be patient, that's it. You'll get your beta but I'm sure they'll make an announcement at least a day or two prior before that happens.

I think people are just very excited to play the game and its overwhelming them with craziness ;) not to jump on LiTos' side (not saying thats a bad thing) but a time frame is a just a estimated amount of time. So 2 weeks, 1 week, 9 weeks.. its a best guess scenario of when you can hopefully expect things to be done, especially when it comes to building something (and if what you're building is going to be great, attention to detail and focusing on the small and big things would definitely increase your time and delay you).

I would love to see it done this week and stage 3 to start, I personally think it'll be next week before we start seeing any progress though in regards to emails and such (unless RWS Staff are working more than 40 hour / 5 day weeks.. which I'm sure some probably are).

Ok, off to work.. which I actually like doing ;) its nice when you like your job..

I'm thinking we need some kind of exuberance thread for the beta where people can post from their enthusiasm or impatience and it doesn't clutter up the threads. It'll happen when it does. I'm sure the devs are just as impatient to get it rolling.

People are just very excited about this game. I don't see anyone being remotely disrespectful. To be honest, I am sure the devs are happy that people are excited and keeping the forums active. I actually feel that was a bit rude to call fans disrespectful for expressing their excitement. Just my 2 cents

No one is forcing you people to read this thread. Getting upset at people for posting here with excitement shows an extreme level of intolerance. Mature or not these people should be able to post somewhere with their excitement. If you don't like it, don't read every new post. If you do have tolerance issues and you don't care when its released then please feel free to not watch the forums and just wait for your email. There is little reason to come on here and belittle people because you don't like their victimless posts.

In regards to the install, I know this has been asked before.. is there a size estimation on the download and somewhere I read before is that after every update the entire thing had to be downloaded again?

Also who cares about beta stage 3.. when is the release date!? ;)

Don't quote me as I haven't talked to Kon or Adam about this, but the beta should be something that just needs to be downloaded once, and then patched every week or so. The updater bug you mentioned only affected a couple of our CB2 testers and the reason CB3 was delayed so long was to buy some time to hunt down and fix any remaining updater problems. So you shouldn't experience any major bugs like that, but keep your fingers crossed just in case. :)

And GPS, CB3 introduces Kingdom Wars, not multiplayer.

The game is very efficient - I don't know if we're allowed to release the size so I won't, but nobody should have any problems even if they have a download cap.

Well I'm glad things seem to moving along smoothly with the fixes, also please don't do the updater like FFXIV did or if you do, make sure it works lol. They made their own torrent client / updater which would stall at 94.5% for about 80% of the testers and you had to actually use uTorrent or something and download the update by manually finding the update in the correct folder (blue screen = torrent #1, pink screen = torrent #2). I do of course have all the faith in the world in you so I'm sure it'll be fine :)

And did I hear that correctly that currently it'll just be Kingdom Wars in CB3, and multiplayer will not be included?

You should just sign up to show your support of the game:D. The 3rd beta already has its beta testers, so you are going to have to wait for the next betas.

You are not signing up for the beta (you are signing up for the forums), you have to enter contest or wait until Reverie decides to give away keys (that's if they do that). Most people here got their keys by entering contest posted by Reverie. The next beta won't be for awhile, but keep checking in and see if there are any contest.
