Are you serious? You have NO IDEA how percentage works!

 

If it was 50% that it would have been released today, you can't change it to 90%. You're not even comparing it to anything. Percentage needs to be relative to something, you can just say it. The reason "We split it 50/50" works is because it's 50% of something.

 

Has no one else noticed how he "calculates" percentage? He's guessing! But he pretends as if he has a mathematical equation to back him up.

So with NO KNOWN facts if it is 50% and suddenly you have some anecdotal evidence and new fact have entered the equation you dont update anything?

 

LOL I would love to play poker with you. I will take 22 and you can have AK and then I will let you tell me the odds, then I will let you know that everyone else folded an ace or a king. Would you want top update you chances of winning? Sure you MIGHT catch a straight or my pair might get counterfeited but you can rest assured the odds of that happening arent close to what they were assuming you have every ace and king in the deck as wel as those two unlikley scenarios.

Full download of a different client. 

 

Full client now 29.4 GBS as compared to 29.6.

 

Hopefully doing a full download and not just a patch of existing one is significant in some way.

Do I think that they will do a BETA this weekend?  No I don't.  But I do think it will happen within the next two weeks.  I think they will do one more stress test weekend before opening the doors to a mass open beta at the end of March.

My experience doing BETAs is that within 30 days to release the game developer has to have a product ready to ship.  They have to give themselves time to produce the DVDs and packaging plus get them out  to their retailers.  this is not something that can be done over night nor should anyone ever attempt to.  so by the end of this month, they have to have it ready to meet their intended deadline.  They can still cotninue to patch, but there is no more time to add additional content.  What is in the game either works, or you block the content to prevent the game from crashing and unlock it after release when it is ready.

They have had stresss test weekends and I think they will have one more.  Then the open BETA leading into the soft launch.  The open beta will be a true test of the system capacity and the pre-launch buys them a few days to monitor the impact of any hardware changes they make afterwards.

Will I do open beta if invited?

I don't know.  I have done enough open betas over the years to know they never go smoothly.  You end up with daily system crashes, overwhelmed login servers, slow questing (far to many people killing the same thing you need), and really bad PVP.

In other words it doesn't turn into a very good gaming experience.  Some people would argue that you are there to check for bugs.  The time for bug reports has passed when you do open beta.  You are there to do one thing. Stress test their network.  Because any bugs you come across were likely reported long before you touched the gaming world and if it isn't fixed by this point, it is not going to be fixed until after release.

What is the first rule of Fight club?

Don't talk about Fight Club.  The same rule applies to BETA invites.  I would hate to see you lose your prevlidges simply because you talked about a BETA invite.

who says I have only one? Who says theyre linked to anything on this random forum ID?

 

Besides they havent been killing people for saying theyre in a beta just whatever their opinion was based on that access. Which is sort of silly but whatever. Depends on if you get tattled on basically. Because I have seen a lot of NDA breaking stuff here good and bad that gets zero repercussion because of it.

 

If its an Open beta friday and they lift the NDA 100 % its all moot.

CURSE gaming has keys too in case youre really desperate.

 

whether thay still have them or not is a question they announced it 15 miunutes ago.

 

EDIT...500K keys, so its safe to think this might be a defacto open beta where anyone who hasnt been banned will get invited. Whether the NDA is fully lifted remains to be seen.

If they do I would like to see Imperials for EVERYONE, that way people who have or have not ordered the CE could make a semi informed decision as to what they are REALLY getting. Double edged sword maybe. But it would be a gesture of good faith. Some people might upgrade immediately, some people might order the CE if they have been on the fence, others might try and downgrade. Calculated risk. If the product is good however then they would do it.

 

But its getting crunch time right now. They havent increased their beta schedule one iota, If they have one tomorrow it will be a start. But it is still a little late to really start trying to change much. Which we know they arent doing anyway. But it is generally 6 weeks between betas, if they have one this week it will be 3 weeks since the last one.

 

But seriously at this point they cant keep calling them closed betas. They are doing so because that gives the defenders and fans a reason to chirp about why the NDA is still up. If they start an open beta session and dont drop the NDA it wouldnt make too much sense. Possible obviously but it is semi moot since if everyone who wanted to try the game could through an open beta session the NDA wouldnt matter.

 

I also think it completely is reliant on their numbers and whether they have as many preorders made as they thought they would. My own personal opinion is they have had a lot of pre orders made. BUT I dont think they met their goal. Thats why my overall thought is 50/50. Because I think there is a small chance 20% or so we dont see another beta session at all. Or maybe a controlled one where people who havent ordered yet get access to stuff they think might convince them to order.

 

Again its all about marketing. People who have already ordered are in the bag for the most part so they dont need to do anything to get them. Now if they include the Imperial as part of it then they might make another calculated risk.

 

But this company hasnt done anything yet that doesnt seem calculated. It might seem completely 'wrong' but there are definitely reasons behind everything they have done so far.

 

But I want to hear what people think. If there will be a beta event this week or not? If so what do we want to see? An ability to get out of the starter zones? Ability to start a max level toon with a decent amount of points to at least try PvP with? Have access to the racial unlock feature? Imperials for all? Rifts or anchors or whatever theyre called everywhere so we could actually see how they work with people around them? (4 player cap difficulty seems like a joke) What else?


You called it / predicted it! Nice Job!

Partially. I am still not sure if this will be a closed beta or an open beta, but theyre more than likely going ot invite anyone that signed up for beta. Plus they sent Curse gaming a half a million keys.

 

So I think theyre letting anyone that wants to see the game see it. Even if its in a 'beta' phase.

 

Now this could do one of two things. It could allow them to keep the NDA up all the way until release, and it could also allow them to not have an open beta at all. if they invite everyone and give away another 500K keys then in their minds there isnt anyway anyone who anted to experience the game first hand couldnt. It is also a reasonable asumption on their part and I wont criticize them for that.

 

So basically it is sort of an open beta but an open restricted beta with an NDA attached (assuming this Friday is a press NDA lift and not a full NDA lift).

 

On a purely neutral level this is the best of both worlds for them, they let people see the game for themselves and let their own eye and opinions make up their minds. Still cant talk about  it, but if everyone has sen the same thing what is there really oo talk about. Just differing opinions. Now of course there could be anecdotal stuff like a random CTD or a lag spike or getting stuck somewhere. But if its a very small issue with a few people it isnt really relevant. Which I can also maybe agree with to a point.

 

Woud I like to see the NDA lifted? Sure. Would I like to be able to talk about stuff and not worry? Sure. But if everyone gets to see it then that sort of defuses the whol esituation.

 

Now if there are still people whom after this weekend still didnt get into beta (by no choice of their own) then it wont be so cut and dry.

 

But I am giving Zenimax the benefit of the doubt and thinking theyre looking to see a couple million people in this weekends beta.

 

I would love to be able to comment good or bad on how well it handled it as it would directly relate to the launch day expectations a little bit but it isnt life or death.

 

A few other things I would like to see as well that wont be available this beta but cant talk about them.
