Dear Forumers,

We are happy to say that all the preparations are on time, and we are looking to invite everyone who registered to take part in the open beta test this Saturday evening - March 26th.

We will distribute between 2000 to 3000 keys to everyone who registered (as long as their computer specs mat the minimum requirements, and they had at least 1 forum post).

Looking forward to seeing you in-game this weekend.

I have a question... I bought a new computer, exactly the same as my last in specs for my family members to use. I just made this account for them to play with me and have regestered for beta just a day ago with the same specs of my account. Since this account was just made will it be entered to join or not?

Thank you for this encouraging update. I look forward to giving the game a spin as soon as I can.

One thing I would like to ask is in regards to downloading the game/software needed. Could you please direct the coming swarm of testers to a single forum thread where all of the beta info., and download links are compiled in one location, and can be found easily?

Meh. I think that "to have at least 1 post" rule is ridiculous. Why should I post something if I'm not in beta and haven't seen the game? :confused: Well, I guess it's too late to post something to be allowed into beta... Fine, I'll just wait for release then. :) Good luck with beta-testing, everyone.

I am very excited to be able to test this game. I hope to find some bugs but this will also give me a chance to see how the major features are and rant to all my friends about how they should buy this game and play it with me.

BTW, when will the keys go out roughly? Saturday morning or friday? Or are they being released in batches throughout the weekend?

I'm guessing Invitations will be given out tonight so people can download the game before it's out.

littlextiger
03-25-2011, 06:36 PM
So only accounts with the specs met will be picked? Thats too bad. I knew the game ran slow, but its still great to play the online kingdoms. The citybuilding intrigues me more than the RTS battles... ah well, 2 GHz dualcore and 8600M gt will be dropping me out of the beta. Maybe once it optimizes or i get around to a new computer. great game nonetheless.

Just wondering...if it is open beta, why even bother with the keys? Just set the date and let all accounts who registered here download the game and start playing. It it called "open" for the reason that anyone can participate. So why make it complex, checking the posts and sending out invitations with the keys?

Osric
03-26-2011, 05:56 AM

Yeah I know. I am dieing for a key. Can anyone confirm any keys have been sent out yet?

Nordmann
03-26-2011, 10:24 AM
I confirm, that i either havent received a key or any other information about a client.

Nordmann
03-26-2011, 10:32 AM
And Alex confirmed it yesterday as i can see here (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1815&page=15).

im so excited!

GPS51
03-26-2011, 10:38 AM
Like I said don't plan on seeing any info about keys/clients for 8-12 hours. It's brutal but I've seen a few of these events and that's my educated guess ;)

BorKon

same here still nothing :( but if u check the time of this forum its 9.45AM so I guess another 4-5 hours till keys

I agree with GPS51 and dont try to speculate. ;)

Griegor Mcvennor
03-26-2011, 11:40 AM
Im fairly sure being that it's open beta and the NDA doesn't apply, if people were getting keys we would see celebratory posts on the forums by now.

Dawiichan
03-26-2011, 12:35 PM
I'm quite shocked that we didn't get them at least a day before launch. Anyway, they said saturday afternoon. It's 11:33pm server time and I'm starting to doubt that it will come out at 12pm. I'd say around 3PM-4PM would be my next guess since that's when most betas start.

GPS51
03-26-2011, 12:54 PM
Well the devs are spread out acroos N america and they like to use the whole day on release days.

Can we get an update from someone at Reverie just so we know whats going on? Please?

Gongora
03-26-2011, 02:26 PM
It will still be awhile yet, my guess it wont even happen today. There are some serious roadblocks they I am sure wish to clear up before having everyone hit the high-way!

It is worth waiting for, that I can promise you =D

Trust me being able to play now and hit dead end buggs they are now working on sucks, that and sending out 2k codes I am sure will result in some downtime... they are doing there best I am sure!

GPS51
03-26-2011, 02:31 PM
Oh I expect them to release those codes today. But they've been known to release things at 8PM my time and it's only 12:30 pm right now.

Smikis
03-26-2011, 02:34 PM
i still think they could communicate better, even if its delays, everyone appreciate update now and then, not asking you to draw us news in the sky, just 2 mins to drop forum update, gotta keep waiting i suppose

I understand you and everyone are excited about the beta keys coming out, but be patient. It was mentioned that the keys would be released today so wait until something is said. No specific times was mentioned. Also they go on Eastern Standard Time, so any times they say will be in that time zone. I knew Reverie isn't always on top of things, but they are hard at work behind the scenes.

Same, so I'm kind of confused on what Konstantin meant with invites going out at 6 p.m. EST. I'm not complaining or anything, just curious because I thought U.S. EST is the same as Canada EST.

Some ISP's do Canada is pretty bad for it I heard. Some people do it in UK too or they allow x amount donwloaded during peak times then they drop the connection speeds 3/4 till after that time.

Glad the US doesn't do that for the most part. They don't cap bandwith here. They simply give you the option to pay for higher speeds but they don't cap the total download amount.

GPS51
03-26-2011, 07:29 PM
Unless you have one of the major providers in the US and they decide you dl too much. Then they'll block you and good luck trying to get it changed.

03-26-2011, 07:32 PM
In the Uk nearly all Downloads are capped at so many gig a month unless you pay large amounts more to make it unlimited which is quite costly

willyneo
03-26-2011, 07:34 PM
ooo 8:30 anyways I'm capped out at 135g a month or something like that. have to pay like $2.5 a gig over that caps out at $30 but after that u get unlimited.

Again. It's past 8:30, time for the wait! Also yea, it sucks for the people that have a limit. My friend has it and it totally sucks.

willyneo
03-26-2011, 07:44 PM
It feels so easy to reach your limit too... When you dl at 25mbps and ul at 7 mbps. But atleast they dont throtle my torrents like other providers ive used. I remember when I could dl at 7mbps but when ever I torrented I was lucky if I even got to use even 50% of the speed.

Griegor Mcvennor
03-26-2011, 07:50 PM
My connection is 16 MBPS but my normally download speed averages 2 MBPS as far as file downloads from fileplanet and the like go. I don't have any limits though.

Griegor Mcvennor

Dude it takes a while for 3000 keys to get sent out. They don't just click a button and boom everyone has them. They release them in batches based on the hardware specs and some other mystical formula than I don't comprehend.

When they say you connection is 16 mbps they means mega BITS per second. When you download and it says 2 mbps it normally means mega BYTES per second. 8 bits make a byte. So your connection is actually giving you what you payed for.

I cap out around 3.4 mega bytes as the highest i've seen. Which is higher then I payed for which is nice. But it rarely goes that high. My connection is 25 mega bits though.

about 25 minutes.


my point exactly , I guess they limit the key they send out to the amount of ppl that are currently downloading the game hence the reson not every one recived a key yet (just me grabing for straws there)

and considering that ppl are downloading with a speed of 3.4 mega bytes we will be waiting for some time ... (got to love my 100/100 mega byte fiber optic cable)

Yet Another Update: We are starting to send out the keys in 10 minutes. But the process will indeed take 1 hour at least, if everything goes according to plan:)

Also keep in mind - we are selecting 2000 people from nearly 4000 qualified beta applicants. And if you don`t get in today - you are guaranteed a spot for the second wave - sometimes in mid April.

The keys were sent out based upon specific hardware requirements needed for this week of testing. We will be sending out additional keys (about 2000 more) in the coming weeks as we need to test additional hardware. So if you didn't quite get one, don't give up yet

If you signed up but didn't get a key, my main suggestion would be to check your spam inbox - the email may be just misplaced. If you have over ten posts as of today but no email, feel free to PM me and we can look into your sign-up and see if we can get you in - perhaps we'll send out keys to the 50-100 or so with the most posts next week or a little sooner (so that we aren't adding to the beta server load). It's possible that there were some incomplete fields in the sign-up form so your submission wasn't properly processed.

We regret not being able to get all of you in to this round, but I'd be happy to look into individual cases via PM. :)

I am very excited for this game, I do have a few questions though.

1) Will there be one main world where you can own a part of the map and defend your part of the map? or will you have a certain area and if you wish to visit or attack another player you have to "jump" to their city?

2) I like being clans, and so will there be a clan system? Where if you are in a clan, your units will not attack those of your allies?

3) Will there be a continuing of updates? After a while you can only build and upgrade your units and buildings so much, so will there be a continual of updates and upgrades?

LiTos456
04-02-2011, 09:52 AM
1) Its more like the latter, yes.
2) Maybe, but nothing on the clan system yet.
3) Yes.

I don't know, I think its really worth it to play the game even in it's current state. Plus you get to say you helped out in finding all those nasty bugs and reminisce in all the bugs you experienced and help solve. I bet you wouldn't wanna give up your beta spot and wait for major bugs to be fixxed. You probably wanna be apart of the group that helped find them.

I'm afraid your not in open beta... your in closed beta... open beta is available to all, having a limited number of keys or having to pre-register then wait for an invite with a limited number of keys is the opposite of an open beta, what is it with companies and false advertising nowdays.

I have to agree to some degree here. In an open beta, people aren't necessarily invited in this manner. Sure, the beta isn't "open" when keys are still being released, however in an open beta these keys are a lot easier to access than having to wait for one, like in a closed beta. I'm not complaining and I'm certainly not upset; there is no need to be angry about the situation. Though the stating that they are in open beta is almost misleading. That or they are trying to define what it means to hold an open beta.

Wrong usage of the word 'open'.
'Open' does not mean available to anyone and everyone. 'Open' is used to mean that participants do not have to sign an NDA (Non-disclosure agreement).

Xanderxavier
04-04-2011, 11:11 PM
im not angry, merely a little disappointed, it's hardly a great start to their customer relations if they start it off with what amounts to false advertising, merely stating what I believe to be the obvious, i've participated in dozens of closed and open beta's, never before have I encountered an "open" beta where the process for entry was any more involved then signing up, receiving key, no application required, downloading client, starting play.

Closed beta's on the other hand have similar systems with either applications being answered either randomly specification/demographic based and/or keys being given away in groups and or promotions from partner's or certain websites giving them away,(ign prime for instance) ultimately if every single other beta in this fashion was called closed beta and I encounter one that follows the standard closed beta model and calls itself open it's a fair bet that it's a closed beta masquerading as an open one, I spent my time filling in details for an "open beta" twice, including signing up to forums (on a side note, integrated accounts system people, not everyone likes forums) and yet at the end find no key no details to download, and same application process as a closed, where frankly I wouldnt have signed up at this point in time had I known in advance it was a closed, I'd have waited till the open.

You cannot redefine an existing established term with significant common trait's implying its usage unless you are the only party that uses said term, and with notice taking special care in pointing this out, as in the case of the word beta this clearly not the case, their "open beta" announcement is logically deliberately misleading, implying the game is further along in the development cycle then it actually is, possibly in the attempt to drum up more interest, however to the average player encountering the title on discovering this, it'll be a bad way to start of relations with customers for the company, most will not post on forums to point this out and simply leave disappointed, I however will out of principal, I don't like being mis-lead so this note is mostly to the developer's to get their act together if they wish to turn potential customers into actual customer's, lying isnt the way to go about it.

P.S. I posted in addition as a minimum of one post is required to have any chance of getting one of the closed beta key's in the next batch in their "open beta" so if i'm to be forced to post it might as well call them out on their fib whilst im at it.
P.S.2. As for NDA yes that is one feature of an open beta but open beta's and closed beta's are a sum of features not a single one, semantics win court case's not customer's nor hearts and minds.
P.S.3. There are indeed many Closed beta's with NDA's lifted prior to open beta if indeed there is one, as many cb veteran's will know, an accurate description of their current beta stage rather then "open beta" would be closed beta with nda lifted, and the announcement should have been NDA lift's in two days with a side note of server reset.

Revan
04-05-2011, 07:29 AM
They sent out keys to over 2000 people... Id call that an open beta as the term stands for testing before the final release with either unlimited or a large amount of spots. 2000 In my opinion isn't a small number for an RTS. Posting that one post out of disappointment because you didn't get what you wanted when you haven't really done anything is hardly the help they are looking for.
