My wife got into the Alpha forums this morning, there never was an email about it. If you have the trailblazer on your acct you will be updated when you log into the Landmark  forums.

Just got an email inviting me (and everyone) to a release(?) party at SOE on Jan 31st.

And Smed tweets some related news. Saying that Founders Pack purchasers will be the first to play in Alpha.  That the "event" is under controlled circumstances.

This does mean that they are beating the Feb 28th date.   But it could also mean that all of us Trailblazers will be playing Alpha before Jan 31st.  Or it could just be the event is scripted play through and we won't get  Alpha before since our play won't be scripted.

just cause i like links - there is no clarification

Thanks for the link.  IE11 and pasting into the forum don't seem to get along.

These guy tweets always seem cryptic (and not the company).  So this is a little more of my interpretation. If Smed is promising that Founders Pack buyers will be first to "play" EQLN Alpha and that what they are "showing" at the event is under controlled circumstances.  And while the invite clearly states "xxxxxxx, your invited to play EverQuest Next Landmark" then there can really only be two conclusions. 

Conclusion one.  Dates and statements are joined.  Jan 31 to go to an event and invited to play there live on that date.  And since Founders Pack buyers will get to be "first" to play means that we will have access BEFORE the event.

Conclusion two.  Dates are dates and statements are statements.  No where in the invite does it actually say you will be playing at the event.  It could be that they will be giving out Founders Packs at the event and that we will all get to play the game first, but AFTER the event.

I am betting on conclusion one.  It is not a stretch to read into the email and see that they clearly mean that you will be playing AT the event.

 

Errr no. The addition of the event being played in a controlled environment could mean that even if trailblazers get to play in 2015, they'd still be first to play because it's an uncontrolled environment. Your conclusions can be right, but they can not be made from the text presented.

Update on their facebook event notification.  They explain away the "playing" at the event.  What they are playing is on a local server so not really Landmark.  We will get access to Landmark first at some point after the event (I am betting immediately after).  They won't be breaking their promise of Trailblazers getting to play first since they aren't really playing it at the event.

That's why the email at the event is saying "Be the first to try out landmark."  This is spin.  If you can't see that, you're blind.

Five more days to keep the "January" promise. I preordered relying on that. Harumph.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?
