"you are not prepared!"

 
OP  9/26/13 4:41:50 PM#1

I found this interesting little tidbit in the 6th edition of  'Ask us anything"  on the ESO website. Ask us anything is really cool where devs answer our question's.

 

 

"Where’s my beta key? – The Internet

I was going to deliver it to you in person, but I ran out of magicka! My mount went lame! I didn’t have enough gold for the Wayshrine. My robes didn’t come back from the alchemist’s! An old friend stopped by from Akavir. Someone stole my horse! There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Fleshflies! IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO THE DIVINES!

Excuses aside, we’ve sent out tens of thousands of beta keys already. Keep in mind, though, that three million fans have signed up so far. The beta is growing fast, and we’re going to keep sending invites, so don’t lose hope! Any time we send new invites, you’ll see a post here and on social media."

i don't think that means much honestly, but thanks for posting anyways!

personally i will buy and play the game but i am not even signed up for beta. there are probably thousands of people that are signed up just to try it that have no intention on buying it.

so yeah....

There's some lovely filth down here.

I signed up and got in - woohoo, me! - and I used 3 different emails.  I'd guess they're counting each email as a separate person signing up - so the number presented could be a bit deceiving.  Be pretty cool if it really WAS 3 million folks signing up for the beta, though.

Congrats on your beta invite!

Good point 3 million applications isn't necessarily 3 million unique applicants.

Even still with most successfully MMOs using the 1 million account mark for bragging rights and 400k concurrent players being really bustling, this early showing of 3 million is impressive.

Here's the thing.  This is like comparing the amount of people who entered a contest to win a Dodge Viper compared to the actual purchasers.  I'm betting those two numbers will be very different.

3 million isn't as much as you would think?  Were you expecting a trillion?  A gazillion?  That's a shit ton of beta sign-ups.  Obviously, it means nothing in the grand scheme, but that's the most I can recall a game having.

Skyrim sold what 11mil copies or thereabouts? this is free the only prevention to sign up is really only laziness or disinterest.

I see what you're saying man.  But, that 3 million is probably only 500k people signing up on 6 different e-mails lol.

actually thats a good point lol. I wonder if they scan by IP address and somehow sort by that as well for their distribution list. I guess Im in the minority and only made one account, stupid me lol. Im too lazy to do more than one :-).

The point I was trying to get across (admittedly in a tongue in cheek manner) was that beta signups is an irrelevant data point.  You can extrapolate nothing from it other tan 3 mil signed up.  I've seen games barely break 10k with a couple k active participants change the industry.  On the other hand I'm sure SWTOR had as many or more, that went well.  Beta signups mean nothing in regards to game state now or at launch.

 

Using beta signups as a basis for predicting anything is merely one projecting their own hopes/dreams or dire predictions.

that doesnt mean 3 million people will buy and play the game. Who knows, maybe more, maybe less. But 3 mil beta sign ups mean nothing. Hey, also a small number will be chosen so.... pffffft

read the follow up, it was merely an example of how pointless it is to draw conclusions from an irrelevant data point .

Considering that Star Wars only attracted 2 million beta players with a much bigger advertising push, its a decent achievement. Just goes to show how popular the ESO IP is.

Hopefully the finished product lives up to the legacy.

i agree its pointless to draw any conclusions but you said "the only prevention to sign up is really only laziness or disinterest."

that's what i don't agree with. again, your average gamer doesn't beta test any games, is that because they are lazy or not interested?
