Head on over and sign up folks...
Sweet. Thank you for the heads up.
Done and Done.
Thanks for the heads up!
already signed up
Done. Thanks for the information!
Thanks for the heads up! Signing up now!
WOOHOO! Just waiting for the email confirmation now.
Thanks a bunch for the info.
I hope I get in. *crosses fingers*
I remember doing a stress test on Samurai Empire beta and only being able to move one step every few minutes. LOL
Yahoooo....signed up....now the waiting begins.
Well, let's see... I beta tested 3D which was a flop, and KR which was a flop... Hell, might as well make it a trifecta.
Thats the Spirit snap:
I'm seeing a pattern here... MAYBE it's not the game that flopped!
Awesome. I got to do beta for Samurai Empire, I'm hoping I can get in on this one.
Must be the only form ever with no UK entry on the Country dropdown menu
I would love to sign up...but not through a non-secure form where it asks for birth dates and addresses and emails and everything *sigh*
No..it was them trying to change the game, that was a flop.
UO Is 2D, period.
Careful, Dermott is gonna come in here and call you a Luddite!!
The beta sign up isn't a secure site. I'm reluctant to provide some of the information....
Then don't. Nobody is forcing anyone to sign up...la
The Beta page went up a bit early but the official announcement will be made tomorrow. You are welcome to sign up and more information should be available tomorrow.
Edit: we are also looking into getting the page secure as the sign up page went up earlier than expected.
I really wish I could put you on my ignore list.
I'm a bit surprised EA/Mythic put up an insecure form that requests the account name. Somebody didn't think that through very well.
Regardless, I'm in. If it had asked for my password I would have wondered if this was just a well-crafted phishing trip.
Nothing stopping you from doing it honey...la
Just stick it out there and worry about fixing it later. Why am I not surprised? That could be EA's new motto as far as UO is concerned.
I think they are as excited to get this out to us as we are to get it ... and you just cant make some people happy
If you have multiple accounts do you sign up once for each one, or just pick one to try it out with?
Im pretty sure just once, think it may have said that at bottom of sign up page.
This is so exciting we been waiting a looooong time.
That is a good question. I only signed up for one account, but I have others.
I have a wide variety of hardware and software combos on which I could test, so is it appropriate to register other account / hardware / software combos.
That is a question to Mythic.
Now to wait...
Any idea when we'll know if we're accepted?
Give it up with the SSL whining. No one wants your address, birthday, email enough to snoop or MiM it.
You should only have throwaway stuff associated with a game anyway if you have such significant security concerns.
And Austria and Switzerland are missing too ... Germany made it though
I believe the Beta Testing Agreement limits you in section (H)1. to installing the software onto one computer only.
Anyone else find it strange that they did not use a secure page for this sign up?
I believe the form has gone up before it was completed, read Chrissay's post further back. I'm waiting for UK to be added to the list before I attempt to sign up.
I wonder will we have to sign up again then ?
If you have already signed up you do not need to sign up again.
Chrissay said that we were free to sign up. I doubt she would say that only to require us to sign up a second time, but you never know.
... she beat me to the punch...
I'd assume a 3-6 week sign up and respond time frame. I could see them taking 2-4 weeks to receive sign ups, then another 1-2 weeks worth of respond time. And, of course, I don't expect people that aren't selected to ever hear that they aren't selected.
I know that people in a closed beta usually have a gag restriction, meaning they are not allowed to talk about what they see, but are they allowed to say that they are IN the closed beta?
Why does Mythic need my rl address for an online beta test?
If your account isnt approved for beta access, no, you cant just log in and play.
SHEESH.... chill people. If it is that big of a deal, wait until they get a secure page going to sign up. No need to keep whining about it.
ME... I am going to go feed the horses, brush a couple, throw a brat on the BBQ and open a Samuel Adams.
anyone else want a brew?
Perhaps he's thinking of KR...
I hope none of you guys who dislike programs such as Punkbuster signed up for the beta.
Yes, I actually read agreements before I sign them.
Sam Adams? Always a good choice! I'll take two after the day I've had. This beta sign up (sadly) was the highlight of my day.
Yeah, sorry, that was poorly worded.
I meant due to that restriction, would it be appropriate to register other accounts that would use other hardware setups.
I have had too much vicodin.
OH NOES ITS GUNNA TAKE MAH INFOES! GUARDS
It looks like we got ourselves a reader, boys...
I'll be fine with that. That makes me wonder though... If that is part of the SA client, then either the Legacy client would need to be updated with that same functionality or the Legacy client would need to be discon... well I don't want to start one of those tomato flinging arguments. It wouldn't seem right to have that feature in the SA client while another existing client still existed that didn't...
If your country isn't listed, choose "All other countries" from the drop down list.
I think punkbuster sucks because of its EULA.
Both punkbuster and this RAM scanning privilege can be easily obviated by the technically sophisticated who will write tools for those that lack such sophistication.
Still, its better than punkbuster.
