Coronavirus

Postby Consultant » Tue Mar 17, 2020 1:10 pm

We've had some questions so we thought we should let people know that most of our team works out of their houses anyway, and while there are a few situations where the kids are at home, which is fun but distracting, we are mostly just plugging away as usual, creating Ship of Heroes. Ss far as I know today, no one is sick.

What can we do to help all of you, who are suddenly at home during the day?

I second the motion for the "Character Creator" -- Yes, please. Please with whipped cream and a cherry on top, and the sprinkles.

I was told there'd be some sort of alpha/beta invite open for anyone, not just backers, on my MMO news site. I jumped in and signed up. How do I go about receiving this?

I just wrote "Please". you give your email out they will send the activation code to the email address. they just placed a new patch and want to make sure all it working before invites go out.

Tuesday morning, eastern US time:

Good news! We just sent the first 100 keys out the first 100 email addresses we received from people who said they really wanted to get in early.

Of course, this means the server and game are pretty stable, and working fine for our dev team. Those of you familiar with Murphy's Law know that this means we are probably going to experience a raft of new technical problems.

Our small team is literally sitting on the edge of their seats, waiting to hear what went wrong. :)

But the event has started.

If the first 100 volunteers report good results and not too many issues, then we will send out 100 more. After that we will begin sending out larger batches of invitations. Everything is being sent to your email address associated with these forums (different than last time, which was a donor event). So we have about 14,000 email addresses to work through.

As the day progresses, I will post more progress reports.

Tuesday evening, US east coast time (8 pm). Next up we will begin inviting members of our forum community, 1,000 at a time. Starting in a minute or so. We will likely do a couple of groups tonight. More tomorrow.
