Dear Forumers,

Quick announcement to counter a lot of questions and private messages that have been flooding in...

New beta wave starts on July 15th. We will invite EVERYONE who signs-up on our website until July 14th. In addition our publisher will give away 4000+ keys at various retail websites.

Next wave will start on August 1st.

Also towards mid August we are starting true Open Beta - with anyone being able to download the client on our website together with the CD Key. However open beta will only last 2 weeks.

And to remind you - the beta will keep on going until end of August. As we`ll need to take the server down for a week prior to September 6th release.

Great to hear, but i've been trying to get a beta key for the past three weeks, and it still says i haven't been a member long enough to get one. Am i going to miss the 14th deadline?

Hi I really looking forward to this game, and would like to try the beta. But i can't apply to the beta. You say you will invite everyone for teh beta wave on July 15th. So should i just stay put and wait for the invitation?

Thx, greetz Alwin

I'd also like to know how long you need to be a member to qualify.

If possible would I be able to receive a beta-key if I can't qualify by July the 15th?

maximusfive
07-10-2011, 02:47 AM
I think the first message is implying that everyone who registers an account for the forums will receive a key, however, I am VERY unsure of that, and would like some kind of official comment on whether that's right or not.

Sunlancer
07-10-2011, 06:51 AM
I have read this forum till my eyes bled and sure would like some clarification on how EXACTLY to qualify for a key. This would include the time frame required, the number of posts required, whether the link that says, "You have not been a member long enough to qualify for a open beta key. Try again in the future!" is based on posts or the actual passage of time.

So far the majority traffic I have seen on the forum is about everyone trying to get in and wondering why they cannot.

I am pretty sure no matter how old your account or how many posts you have, we are waiting on the 15th for more invites.

You are probably correct, but it would be nice to have it spelled out so we can use patience and stop searching for the answers in the forum.

I have the same question. Only found it about this game yesterday and it looks... Well I can't find the words for it. I've joined this site immediately and I would really like to join that beta.

It is before the 14th, so does that mean I can join as well in a few days?

I would really like to have new informations about on a few questions.

First, how long do we have to wait in order to register for a beta ? Right now I can't register to the Open beta and it says "Register BEFORE 15th of july".

So my second question is, do I have a chance then ? Before july 15th, in two days, I hope EVERYONE can register like you said.

3rd question, Do you have any idea about the price ? I would buy the game anyway even if it is 50$ or more but that's formality, you have to ask for the price.

4th question, If we can't register before 15th of july, can we register the exact day (07/15) ?

5th question, You said there'll be partenaire websites who'll provide beta access keys. Can we have a list of at least one or two of these websites or do we have to search for them ourselves ?

That's all I can think for now. Maybe I can come with more interessting questions and PM/e-mail them to you but then again, I don't know if you would read them or even read this.
Anyway many thanks for reading (If you do so) this and I hope you can give me/us some more information because we ARE interested in your game. Have a nice day and good job with your awesome game.

Maybe you should take the time to read the forums, instead of making this big long, unnecessary post. It's annoying have every single person ask the same question over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again. If you registered on the forums, BEFORE the day of July 15th, then you are apt to be in the beta. Even if you don't, there will be thousands of keys given out. There is no doubt in my mind that you won't get a beta key. You're registered in the forums. You're getting in. This game is going to be free to play (may subject to change, I am not a representative so I don't know), for the most part it is going to be like a cash shop. No, you cannot register on the 15th of July. You have to have registered by the 14th at the end of a certain time. When the beta keys are given out for the partnered websites, I'm sure they will tell you where to go. Until then, don't ask something you don't need to know about right now.


Go read up on the guide and the lore, characters stories, units, how to play, etc. You can learn about the game, while you wait to play it. (I feel like a broken record, I hate posting the same thing every day)

I hope you are right because you just spoke to me like you were insulting ... I just asked a FEW questions about things everyone else wants to know. You just have to look at the guy who posted after you, he was searching for the same thing so instead of saying that you repeat yourself over and over, just give the correct answer. Though I thank you for giving the anwser and yet I still cannot register. Like I said, I hope you are right, I hope. I did a little research before posting it but couldn't find anything interesting SO I posted here and didn't create a new thread.

I am honestly sorry for the way I responded. I was just a little upset coming to the forums everyday and having new and new posts asking the same, exact thing. I apologize.


"New beta wave starts on July 15th. We will invite EVERYONE who signs-up on our website until July 14th. In addition our publisher will give away 4000+ keys at various retail websites."

That means, people who have registered on the forums will get a key. Today, it ends, since it is the 14th. Everyone who has posted last and every day before will get in.


Cheers, honey.

Toni, I guess the problem for new people (me included) is the wording of the announcement on the main page:

The Dawn of Fantasy beta sign-ups are now open. Register now for your chance to get in. Click here to register.

When you click, you are brought to a screen that says:

Beta sign-ups continue. Register before July 15 to join the next wave.

To determine if you are eligible for a open beta key, press the Apply button below. If you qualify, you will be distributed a key.

The ambiguity for me (as well as the others here on this thread) is what Reverie referring to when it says register before July 15. The way it reads, it appears that registration is referring to beta beta key registration rather than forum registration. And when I click "apply", it says I am too new to the forums. So, in my mind (like that of the other posters in this thread), it seems that we are unable to register for the beta before July 15 because we are too new to the forums, and so we will not be able to participate in the beta.

Believe me, I really hope you are right on this. My problem (being a lawyer with a lot of contract experience) is that I may be overanalyzing the language.

One potential solution is for a veteran like you to tell us what it says when you try to apply for the beta. If it does not let you apply yet either, then it suggests that you are right. If you are able to apply, then unfortunately, I (along with the other newbies) are probably out of luck for the moment.

Oh, baby... no. I honestly believe that that stupid button isn't being used, or has no use at this time. I am no elder of this community, I am actually as new as any of you. I only joined last month. I have not once been able to get anything other than the dreaded "You are too new to the forums", just like everyone else. Every single day I come on, I click it at least 20 times before I go to bed throughout the day. I don't know why, I just do.. (just in case). But, as far as I'm concerned, no, it has no use as of yet. I think tomorrow, on Friday, then we will be able to use it. If not, then I don't know. If I'm not mistaken everyone who has registered before today will get e-mailed the beta key. There is no reason to worry, hun. Promise :).

GPS51
07-14-2011, 03:21 PM
Because this is several rounds into the beta stages the button link in question ^^^^ has been used several times. Right now it states that everyone is too new as there are no keys to be had until tomorrow. Try not to crash the beta key machine more then a couple of times tomorrow ok? ;)

ToniToolTime
07-14-2011, 03:26 PM

The wording really confused me too. I just registered today after finding out about this awesome game. I wonder if I am going to be allowed into the beta. Someone mentioned that keys were also going to be given out on gaming websites. If I don't get in, what websites should I look at to find the retail keys?

You know what's so funny? My name was Smeagol in 6th grade, because I used to do the voice. You didn't want to see me when I acted like Gollum, though. I would jump from one couch to another, and twist my head like the baby in Trainspotting. True story.

You know whats sad and pathetic? Is promising things and not delivering, thats sad and it sad you cant even see it. You know what? Thats why companies get away with these things, because people like you kiss the very ground they walk upon without a question. I dont do that anymore. I look at what they deliver. And.........its been the 15th and no key. So......

Yeah. I really liked the idea of dof (back in the day when I joined super closed beta 2). I waited months to get my key (really) and then I had the option of playing castle siege only...then "CAME THE PATCH" and I could defend castles provided I didn't lag out. That was it. No Kingdom wars, no home city building/quests. Still it was hard to miss the potential and the amount of dev traffic on the forums as they chatted it up with the forumers. I've really enjoyed using the beta testers suggestions for building siege defenses for my home city :) Sadly my ideas didn't make it in :( Just a little history is all. Be patient and the beta key will come to you :D

I'm perfectly fine with waiting as long as it takes the developers to fix this game up, whether its a day, a month, or even longer, but what's really maddening is not knowing what's going on! Maybe someone (preferably a developer) can clear up some confusion
1) Some people are saying you need 1/10/whatever posts, and others are saying you don't, and it's not at all clear who is right
2) Some are saying that everyone who registered before the 15th will get in, some are saying before or on the 15th, some are saying before 24:00 midnight on the 14th, some are saying before a certain time during the 15th, the 18th, next month, etc. Again, there's been no real reason to believe one person over another, so that's why I'd like to see a developer respond.
3) There are multiple places that are giving out beta keys, such as the "apply now" button, the banner at the top, forum threads, and others. Which one are we supposed to be using?

not yet, and I agree with Astrocrat. I don't mind waiting, but I would like to know how long I have to wait.

I think game developers should learn it's better to say it's coming out the 20th and then sent beta-key's the 19th the telling it comes the 15th and don't give it till the 18th.

But, indeed it's better they deliver good work, then half finished work.

No keys sent out.

And to all the Fanbois: It is no problem to not deliver, IF you let the people know. Telling people that keys will come and not deliver without any warning is just plain lying to people and that is bad, no matter the payment model they use.

And btw: Free to Play? Grow up and name ONE "Free to play" that is really free. Every F2P i tried (about 15 now) has cost me WAY more then any pay to play game i ever played. And i actually never spent more then i needed to play unter the top 50%. To play under the top 10% you usually have to shelf out several dozen if not HUNDRED of dollars a month.

This game will not be differend.

will allow players to purchase additional content in the form of expansions, quest packs, and new units and items in exchange for a small fee

This sounds like an Itemshop, doesn`t it?
So this is even worse... pay upfront AND be forced to pay more for non fluff items. Units and Items seem pretty importaint, aye? ;-)

This game is far from free. And for a game that will cost money the company should start to be honest right away. Noone will belive them later on.
Not to bash the game, don`t get me wrong. I just can`t take the "its a beta!" and "it will be free!" stuff, because neither is an excuse to lie to potential cutomers.

Indeed I totally agree with you. No devs online in ages, no news in ages, just give me your cash all the time. This game will be doomed from the start if they dont get transparant and real fast. No beta keys given to new people like they promised. Why should we pay then?

Hi, nice of you to stop by and tell us this. Thanks. Please dont get me wrong, but im getting a bad taste in my mouth from this. Your people should have known of this prob without the community to have to cry it out. I do understand its hectic and all, but its a business and it will be getting money from us sooner or later. So , I hope all goes well, your game looks awesome and I for one will be wanting to buy it, even preorder it and put alot of cash into it if its worth it and then from my side I would like to have some transparancy and to be honest I think your company isnt to transparant at the moment.

While I can't comment on the beta keys (which I assume will be sent out later today), I'm really sorry you get that impression. We've really tried to be a game for the community, by the community. We've had large weekly media updates every single week for almost two years to outline the game's development, taken in several fan suggestions for new features and defenses, hosted community contests and events, and thanked some of your most helpful beta testers by including them in the game's credits. It's a small team, but half the devs check these forums on a regular basis, and haven't asked or received a cent from our fan community since development began nearly ten years ago.

So I do apologize for the mix-up in getting these keys sent out and can't give you an answer until our Producer is on, but I am saddened if you still maintain the rest of your statements.


As for the booster shop and payment methodology, it has always been our goal to provide fans with a lot of material for cheap. We've refused to do the popular subscription option from the start, and any market items can be bought with in-game resources instead of actual cash. So players really can just buy the initial game and then have a never-ending supply of new content for no additional cash. We have stressed this point a lot, so please take a quick glance around the forums - especially the Media Fair Forum - to get a better sense of our mission and product.

Listen to what alex said. The community has had a large impact on the game and will continue too. As for you feeling about the devs not being around, We are a very small team and we are working really hard as of now to get this game ready for launch. You are new here so yeah in the past few months it has been quiet for the reason I have mentioned. A lot of the devs dont have time to go through the forum to and post as the game is where their time is needed.

I'm sorry you feel like this, but we need as much time as we can get to work on the game. I hope you can understand this. We arent a large company that can afford just having people spend time on the forum posting.

Sorry if I had my doubts, I can see that the devs care about the game now, I am a newcomer and well, seeing the beta key signs but total quietness from the devs, I was getting worried. About not being able to post due to work overload and such (it's totally understandable), a simple "We are having a lot of work on our hands right now, the keys will be slightly delayed" post would satisfy a lot of people here.

Taking as an example from Minecraft and Terraria, they update their forum and/or twitter/tumblr with short, clear messages, why not do that here too?

You do not have to make long posts to explain what's going on, just don't keep your playerbase in the dark for long, when you have promised something soon ;)
Players without input from developers get unnerved, as you may have noticed, and can get false impressions, as I initially did.

i've been waiting to get into the beta since 26th of June, so ive been waiting some time, but with every new video or screens being released i gain trust in this game. i truly believe this game will be a game to remember later. Even if the beta keys wont be given this day, i think that the devs are too busy actually improve the gameplay especially for us. so we should be glad to even participate in the beta for this.

good luck to all the devs, and keep up the good work :)

Yeah I definitely understand this. I was like that, waiting for updates about DOF before I was a part of the company ;). One thing you will notice about Reverie (the people that have been here for awhile know this) is they aren't always on time. They mean well, but sometimes there is a long pause before they response.

You should have been here before the beta first started. There was a lot more patients back then, but still it was a very long wait (a lot longer than today). We were all ready and eager.

I am sorry though for the the no responses and I cant help with this. I'm not involved with that that part. So hopefully there will be a post soon.

They want it, to be played, but it's hard to do everything according to schedule with something like this.

Thank you very much for clearing this up for me. I am normally very patient with these things, but when companies promise things, I tend to get impatient when they dont deliver. I will wait my turn and wait till the game comes out. I am very pleased with your kind answers. A question though, will your game store be like battleforge? You say onetime pay and then free updates, while I thought I read somewhere earlier we have to pay for additional units, etc.?

Don't let them get to you, I plan to buy the game and I can't even get in beta because I missed sign ups by a day. The game looks absolutely incredible and if you deliver a solid, fun game you will have players despite what some beta testers may be saying now. :)

You haven't bought the game yet, nor is the game finished. We don't ow you anything and beta is but only a privilege NOT a Right. And I feel our promises in terms of dates and timeline are a privilege on your part to even know of them, we could (and I think should) be more like Valve. I see why they went that way is because they don't want to waste their time on unproductive things like this entire thread.

I am not in any control of the beta keys nor is it my responsibility, but I can tell you that we are working overtime this weekend to get the game running great the next patch just like we did the last 2 weeks. I have not had a day off since the 1st and since then I've worked more than 130 hours. You do the math.

In previous posts you speak of "delivering" in words of promise towards dates and deadlines... dates and deadlines are nothing if we don't first keep our promises to the game itself. ;)

It's more of a customer service thing than something you should get defensive about. Yeah, there's always a segment of the fan base that gets all bent out of shape if you come anywhere near "promising" anything you later have to take back, but what are you gonna do. Just try to be tactful about it, and don't look at it as a reason to stop giving your potential customers any info. Most of us appreciate it when you're simply upfront about whatever's going on, and some of us are even mature enough to understand that sometimes plans change.

If the worst you can say about what you tell us is that you were just being honest, you're doing pretty well. OTOH, when you start to worry about the *****ing too much, and stop communicating, that's when you risk losing people.

As for beta being a privilege, though it might not look like it, that really goes both ways. Whether it's debugging, stress-testing, or just a marketing tool, it's more for the benefit of the game than the players clamoring to get a chance to try it.

For those who can't wait until Monday to get a key. RTSGURU is giving away DoF keys for the Beta... I was doing some game news browsing, and just noticed it on their front page.

Not sure how many they are giving away, but it's worth a shot. Plus the site is good for all news related to RTS games. :)
Sir, I love you and I would like to have your babies... @.@

Thanks so much for the tip! <3!

It sure is a shame we have to go somewhere else to get the keys we were promised.

I had so much faith in this forum. It was SOOOOOO misplaced.

See you all out there

After lurking this thread a bit, I would like to say thanks for clearing what was going on. Even if things are running a bit late, I am sure(hope) most of us will be patient until beta keys going out. Don't let what people say offend you too much, this is the internet after all. http://cdn.fpcontent.net/fp/emoot/buddy.gif Alnd yeah, thats pretty much my two cents on this subject.

Same. :-) Got for myself and my brother so I don't have to punch him whenever he comes by my monitor to not break NDA.

Got one myself. Does this mean that the code I get from this site I could give to someone else? Huh. :/

How are they not going to let new people beta their game? I join just so i can Beta it and it says i can't because i haven't been a member long enough? WTF i have to be a member for a long time before i can OPEN BETA a game? That is very stupid. Some admin please help me or this won't be a game a buy. Get your stuff together.

Well first of all it isn't open beta yet, but a closed beta.
Second:
You haven't bought the game yet, nor is the game finished. We don't owe you anything and beta is but only a privilege NOT a Right. And I feel our promises in terms of dates and timeline are a privilege on your part to even know of them, we could (and I think should) be more like Valve. I see why they went that way is because they don't want to waste their time on unproductive things like this entire thread.

I am not in any control of the beta keys nor is it my responsibility, but I can tell you that we are working overtime this weekend to get the game running great the next patch just like we did the last 2 weeks. I have not had a day off since the 1st and since then I've worked more than 130 hours. You do the math.

In previous posts you speak of "delivering" in words of promise towards dates and deadlines... dates and deadlines are nothing if we don't first keep our promises to the game itself. ;)

I think this thread should have been made AFTER the keys are released, not before. Surprises are more interesting.

beta is but only a privilege NOT a Right.



Now shush about not being able to get the beta key. It's available from a certain site(s?) and if you take atleast 5 minutes to look for the site of the beta key giveaway on these forums, you'll perhaps, JUST PERHAPS, accomplish a simple task of being polite and not a F****** douchebag.

Please have patience a little bit longer and we'll keep you updated or get the keys sent out.

In the mean time, if you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
