How should you spend your time if you do not get an invite into open beta.

I know the open beta is limited to 2000, but is that the first 2000 or just a random 2000 of all the people who sign up? anyone know?

they call it open beta, and there is just 1k spots.. i got no clue how many members we got on this forum wanting invite, but if it is more than spots open its major fail from them, thats about it

Actually, it's more like 2k spots. This is about testing not people getting in to play the game early, so if you don't get in be patient and the game will be release soon on June 3rd.

Well just looking around the forum there is about 20 people or so who have exactly 10 posts and im fairly sure they are only looking for an early demo and completely ignore the word "tester". While there are some people who will test and provide feedback there will most likely be people who get in over others who play the game for 5 mins, don't like it then uninstall.. what a waste.

Of course that depends on how the invites go out, if its random then the above will most likely happen. Im sure the majority of people when they see the word "beta" they think "demo". People should see it as a privilege to play the game early and in return take the time and effort to post on the beta forums to help improve the game. Everyone wants a better product overall im sure.

Pillaging idea is win. And really, beta is a demo, the game is incomplete, it's for people to try, the only difference is that a beta is more feedback intensive.

To be honest... since its called "open beta" it doesn't make much sense to me on how it can be limited like this.. =/

Please keep in mind that the current beta is Closed Beat #5. The next round will be Open Beta 1. I hope you all get in .

If I am not invited to beta, then I'll find some other game to spend my time on. If I still think this game may be better, then I'll play this when it's released, or at least open beta. BUT, If I'm not invited to beta, then I'm probrably gonna forget about this game entirely.

Yes, what you're saying is true, I'm glad some people understand.
Sadly this kind of thing happens everywhere, whereas there will be only a few dedicated testers while a large majority would just want to mess the game (and forget about it in a day).

That's really how most games get "tested" which is why public betas and late closed betas are pretty much useless except for stress testing.

I know how stressful this can be. I've been in beta for a few games now, some to name are Wizard101, War of Legends, etc. I tried posting updates daily if I can across anythin new I liked, disliked, or found as a bug.

OF COURSE, I DID NOT POST EVERYDAY. I'm not trying to get myself in this beta saying that I do, cause that would be a lie. BUT, I did notice that not much activity came from many players in those games.

NOTE: Wizard101, didn't have a forums, they only have a bug report thing. Occasionally, they had a questionnaire after you stopped playing, which I filled out will all the important info accordingly.

Also in Beta for Rift, as this is also their final beta event. A great game, and so far I've only had good things to post about it. CLASSIFIED.

and being necro spammer on forums makes you more dedicated tester, cuz having 200 posts, is far better than 15.. am i right.. no i aint, i still feel a need to post now and then, so every spammer wont take me over by 50 posts.. and thats just broken logic

If you don't care enough to either pillage or cry after being rejected from beta, you don't deserve to get in.

Well it looks like 12 of us may be sieging in RL in a weeks time, we shall pillage Rivere World Studios for all their DoF knowledge resource :O

Depends on whats in your posts that counts, but remember that spam is NOT a Bug Report or even a repeated bug report. ;)

I would find the headquarters of the publisher of this game and I would hold everybody who was in the building at that time hostage until they let me play the game.

I would be a bit disappointed. While I'm not THAT into RTS games, this one is different enough to make me want to try it out.

The best idea when not getting in a beta is sticking to the old games while waiting for an open beta =P

I wanna pillage them for getting my hopes up so much. Maybe even pillage a beta key outta of it.

Anyways even ppl who just want an early demo will say they will test the game even though they have no intent to really give any feedback. People are always self centered once in awhile you run into someone who isn't but it's rare. Alot of the time when you think you found someone who actually thinkgs about more the just themselves it's normally just a ruse to get something.

Like I've been saying, we'll try to sort it out if you registered with sufficient specs and have at least ten posts but did not make the cut if you send me a PM. While the rest of you will get in within the next couple weeks, I will do my best to get you in sooner - as anyone who messaged me can attest to. With that said, we ask that cases be dealt with individually via PM and will not respond to posts.

I will wait until the current game appear out of beta, looks interesting.

I voted for twiddle my thumbs. Since I registered late, thats about all I really can do.
We should all scheme a way for DoF to get put on MMORPG.com gamelist. :D
That way more people like me can find out about it.

i voted none of the above there is no slam head against the wall choice i been waiting since the game was in its early development about a year ago

Beta is still to test the game, so if I donīt get in I trick myself into thinking that someone else is doing the dirty work for me so I can enjoy a polished game at release.

Actually, a year ago, the game was in a pretty late stage of development. Early development was many, many years ago.

If I'm not invited, it's not a drama, but I'd be kinda sad, because it is my first beta subscription. But I'd continue playing League of Legends, Minecraft, Genesis AD and AC :P. The only ''beta tests I did before was for Warcraft III maps, so it was not that big. I did wait for Vindictus because I didn't subscibed the beta. So I will wait for this game also if I'm not accepted ^^.
