The latest Das Tal developer blog has been posted to the game's official site. In it, it is announced that a small number of the current tester pool will be promoted to Veteran Tester and will gain 24/7 access to the client. In addition, servers will open on August 24th to players to stress test the servers.
This test’s goal is to stress our game servers. We expect around 100 players to be able to log in at the same time so don’t be too upset if you don’t get in at first. Not everybody will actually make it to the test but we’ll still be over-subscribed a lot. You can also expect a good amount of lag as we’re getting nearer to the current server capacity - so keep your cool if things start lagging out a little (or a lot).
Our upcoming tests will be less crowded again as we’ll increase our server capacity further and keep the number of invitees a little smaller.
