The Open beta...

Postby .neo.styles on Tue May 02, 2006 3:43 pm

Should begin as soon as the weapon sin my sig are added. Just think of a crisp 20 dolar bil before saying "no" :wink: I can't freaking wait any longer!


Oh and, it should only be available to us becasue there's no point in sharing bandwidth with peopel who won't beven provide feedback (people outisde this community.)

ANyone else getting really, uhm, restless.

Hell, once I was saying to myself "I sure could go for some cornflakes" and I actually said "I sure could go for some Nosferatu" hahaha. :D

You guys have to release an update or I'l go insane!!!! :(

I'm against an open beta... Open betas are a bad thing to start with. So i would vote for a closed beta, where you only add people you think they've earned themselve a place.... Or so...

I'm sorry dude, but you have got to stop taking credit for others' ideas. I clearly stated above that the open beta should only be available to us because people outside this community wouldn't give feedback.

I said they only should add people they think they earned themselve a place. And that's another thing as beeing a member of this forum...


So I'm surry dude but you've got to stop reading in my posts what you want to and start reading what i'm writing...

Well, I think we've all earned out placed on account of our enthusiasm. I think the team knows that each and every one of us would be sure to provide feedback.

Then again, if they are more selective in the choosing process, and thus only chose to make it available to those who've supplied adequate suggestions, that counts you out.
:twisted:

I say they should release ASAP, though this doesn't mean before they've added the guns in my sig. :)

i think a hand sorted tester team is better because, they can choose people of wich they think, they know wich gameplay is aimed. And wich might be good in finding balance and so on... So really don't think it comes down to the amount of suggestions...
But again, i'm not the mod team. So if they think a open beta would be better, or no beta, i'm fine with it.
I think i'm patient enough to wait 1-2 years for this game...

LOL, are you suggesting that they just pick numbers out of a hat?

And I think that the "gameplay is aimed" at all of us. We are all here so we are clearly interested.

So really don't think it comes down to the amount of suggestions...

The number of suggestions signifies your devotion. Someone who is wiling to put in effort to improve the game is a worthy beta tester.

If you give many suggestions (like me) it's a sign that you wil probably give lots after having played the beta version.

What do yousuggest their basis be for choosing? Make no mistake aobut it, being selective is very important. Qualifications are paramount because bandwidth is costly (in one form or another) and it only makes sense to distrbute it to those who can use it to benefit the game.

I think i'm patient enough to wait 1-2 years for this game...

How many people do you think there are that are as patient as you here?

The good of the many outweighs the good of the few.

Alos, I don't think it'll take nearly that long. They've already got an engine to work with, they're neatrly done with the weapons, they've finished the interface, and al they have left is probably a bit of gameplay related code.

Well, when reading the suggestions you have made, it seems you don't have the same picture of gameplay as the rest do.

How can someone's bandwidth improve the game? Sure I have 8mb connection, but what would that benefit the game?

Uhm, me? I've already waited 1½ years for this. I'll even wait 2 more years if I must. Patience is Virtue.

i agree with Witzzard. if the devteam chooses testers that know what theyre talking about then the game will be released sooner. if there is an open beta, im going to want to just play it instead of looking for bugs, glitches, etc. not saying that i dont want to play it, just i would rather play it bug free.

there will be a closed beta with handselected testers, otherwise the game will be full of people complaining about not having a grenade launcher ;)

I'm over that. :D

Just add some hand grenades, which would be even easier to evade, for the vampires, than a grenade launcher.

That notwithstanding, I'de think that I'de make a valuable addition to the beta-test team.

That was one suggestion that was controversial(the grenade launcher! I doubt you actually read ehalf of my suggestions, preferring to believe that they were all similar.

Besides, thin of all te modern vampire movies you have seen. The hunters always took advanatage of every piece of weaponry available to them.

Now, notice that I never suggested a rocket launcher, an OICW, or a M1A1 Abrahams Tank. I know that this isn't battlefield.

Uhm, me? I've already waited 1½ years for this. I'll even wait 2 more years if I must. Patience is Virtue.

...and what exactly do you think they'll be doing in that time. Look at their page on Moddb. They're quite close to done.

The only thing thayt needs to be done AFAIK is add the weapons in my sig, polish up the gameplay and netcode, and some graphicval stuff.

Ghostface, is your labtop repaired yet.[/u]

It's also partly my fault, sorry...

I'm happy to hear that you will have a closed beta. Just a lil' question it isn't running yet? *laughs* okay okay just a joke ;)

Thumbs up for this decision.
