just check their official website out for videos and features

Skill base progression, old school rpg elements in Sci Fi theme (there are hidden missions for those who react with npc often enough etc), DEEP crafting plus true player driven economy (equipments wear out and you have to buy from players), Sci Fi theme (oh did I mention it already?), Sci Fi theme (opps did I mention it again?), optional hardcore PvP (full loot on hardcore server)

The only reason stopping me from pay the 150 is that I am concerned if, even if it gets released, it may end up like earth and beyond, shutting down expectedly all a sudden despite it being a good game, and that I prefer to pay for a full game.

Yes to all of the above. If you'd  click on their website and spend  as much time as you have typing up this misinformed post, maybe you would not have to bother posting?

Obviously this plan is working out great for companies as more and more seem to be jumping on this bandwagon.  It's a shame that gamer's these days are so damn gullible.

No one forcing you to pay anything. 150 to play the game 6 months before release and get exclusive in game items is not that much. No different than buying Wildstar or TESO and subbing 6 months. If you can't afford it just say it, don't mock others for what they want to do with their money.

Your whole post is just you rationalizing away spending 150$ to alpha test someone else's game.  Those devs are probably snorting lines of coke off strippers tits using the cash you gave them lol.  I think I can  hear them screamin out "SUUUCKKKERSSSS!"

I wanted to touch on this for a moment. While the strippers and coke joke never gets old, the reality is that the amount of money generated from these things is more in the range of being able to hire a couple additional hands. I wanted to tackle the reasoning here though.

Why Charge For Alpha?

We originally did not allow players to buy into alpha because the game was in a very early state at that point and we needed experienced testers Now it's closer to the end of alpha testing and we needed more eyes on the game. We moved some of the previous backer tiers to gain access and then we needed more testers so began allowing a $150 option to buy in. Why have the barrier at all? Because we don't want thousands of testers at a time right now. The game has a lot of bugs that need fixing still and there are some features that are still being refined, as well as some areas that lack content. You'd rather not have as many eyes on the game until you resolve most of those issues because to today's player beta = open beta. The average player isn't used to alpha testing and dealing with works in progress. So having that barrier allows us to a) generate money to hire additional help, and b) to limit the number of testers which would quickly get out of control if we say sold that access on steam for cheaper.

Why Would Players Want to Pay?

I'm not here to sell people to buy into alpha. The truth is, if you are easily put off by bugs, your better off waiting until beta or launch. The value of being in at an alpha stage for players is the chance to provide their feedback when the game is an early stage. As any of our testers would probably tell you, we do listen to player feedback and there are adjustments that are made based on it. That's a lot easier to do and experiment though when there are less players. By the time the game reaches beta it will be strictly in refinement and content mode. If that's something you desire then maybe it's worth it for you as a player. If it's not then you may want to wait for beta or launch. The option is there because some players want it, but it isn't meant for everyone to hop in and purchase it. For some players it will be worth the cost of admission, others would be better off waiting.

To be fair,  I'm not at all against you guys turning a profit and if the market is buying then its simple economics here.  Here's to hoping this money will go towards making it an even better experience.  I want the game to do well and I want the experience to be second to none.  Yes, my expectations are high.  I want every bang for my buck I can get.

 

Contact me when its around 20$.

I didn't pony up the dough for the alpha test, I did to support the development of the game. Its not like the other "alpha games" you see, this development team actually needed the funds because they are self publishing and funding the game themselves. I'll never put money like that into a game by SoE and I certainly didn't with ArcheAge either.

Yeah.

If there are legit games to receive crowd funding support for development than TR is one of those.

Say no to cookie-cutter themeparks and support TR !

these kickstarter alpha access packs are getting out of control really..

 

I argee that nichy companies need some sort backup in order to produce a game..

 

i am not talking only about the repopulation tho..

 

But tbh: the world is currenly upside down..

 

they should pay ME in order to test their game.. this is how it should be.. and not the other way around..

 

But then again like i said above i agree with nichy companies that sell these kinda deals.. because they need to know if the there are enough players that are intrested in their game..

 

But if you see SOE and TRION for example.. those companies can burn to the ground if ask me.. they already have money for development but simply scam these alpha access deals.

 

KICKSTARTER DEALS SHOULD NOT APPLY FOR COMPANIES WHO HAVE X AMOUNT NET SALES EACH YEAR

still, i have high hopes for Repop, i truly do, and i will 100% play this when its full release, hell ill even use the cash shop if the game turns out to be really good, but sorry for now i dont think i will do 150 for alpha

all the best for those who will, and we all depend on you to make sure you guys give a good feedback to make the game awesome

 

As someone in the Archeage Alpha I want to know where you people heard its $150 to play in the Alpha? I bought a founders/collectors pack which gave me $150 worth( or more) of in-game items,3 months patron status and Alpha and beta access. How many Collectors ed. of games have you bought for a book or statue or a "special" DLC that should have been in the game for $79/$99/$150?

I heard it from you.. you just said you paid 150 for alpha/beta..and whatever.  Listing more "stuff" does not mean you  didn't have to pay 150 does it?

 

Why bother trying to change facts? :P You paid 150 , hope you are enjoying the alpha:)

I decided to go visit the official site not knowing much about this game at all. I found out one of the packages is, $150 for WEEKEND access. I spent the same amount on Archeage when it was in Alpha because it could be played 24/7, around the clock not just on weekends. If Archeage had only been weekends, there is no way on this earth I would have spent that kind of money on it.

Apparently some gals and guys don't mind only playing weekends but I will pass. If they progress to 24/7, then I will look at it's progress again.

Remember its not $150 to play the game.. its a $150 to get access to the ALPHA TEST and then you will also get a ton of additional stuff for launch, cash to spend in game, tokens and so on..

 

I backed it for round two beta access, I dont really want to spoil the game by testing it to early on.. still i cant wait for this to release its the only MMORPG i am looking forward to at the moment.

 

Also remember it wont be long before this game goes into the early stages of Beta..

It is $100 for 1 weekend of access and $150 for full access right now. The Weekend access accounts should have full access in a month or two and we will adjust the access levels again adding in lower price packages. This will continue until everyone has access and the price point is $25 for Beta access. We do give out keys on occasion and will continue to ramp that up as well through the remainder of the year.

Wait.... players are paying a gaming company to test an unfinished game for them? And paying the price of 2.5 fully finished games? Wow.... Maybe I should step away from this genre....

Remember the guy that said earlier not to pay for alpha or beta access for any games in the AA forum and everyone jump him for it. 

Now everyone is ok with the fact of not paying for alpha or beta for this one? We did say in the other post that was in the AA forums none should have to pay for alpha or beta of any games else if we keep paying for it every game in the future will include this feature and get a crappy product on the market. Everyone said not true , blah, blah,blah.

And there you go, this is the new game or reboot of a game coming out with this exact same option. Thank you guys for making a precedent in the gaming community and ruining everyones games by paying for not finish product that you wont even make better even by testing it by paying the big bucks.

The adult I am takes care of most things real life. However my inner-child is a GAMER!!

Would only do it if the game would release full sub-based.

I just fear F2P and what it brings into the game. Regardless if it has several payment options.

To be honost I don't mind themepark games that are F2P because of their more limited nature. But when it comes to a more sandbox type of MMORPG I'm really not sure if that is what will make the game populair.

Maybe I'm old fashion but a good sandbox will gain popularity due to word of mouth IF it has a sub. With today's generation of gamers who are mostly experianced with themepark games to give acces to a sandbox for free doesn't bode very well in my opinion.

Just look how quickly people get bored consuming content like there is no tommorow. Now imagine those people entering a game with minimal guide-lines........
