Login test participation question

Postby GladDog » Fri Nov 16, 2018 8:42 pm

We’re planning a login test during 2018. If you’ve donated $25 or more to the game’s development then you are eligible to participate. It’s just a brief login and a few pictures – no combat. If you are eligible, will you join us in the test?

Yes
No
I’m not sure, it depends on the date and time
Something else, I’ll tell you in the forums

Depends on date and time.

This working for a living thing... it's for the birds :/


On the plus side, I think my pc is now ready to go, graphics card and all.

I'll be there, if I can. It depends on circumstances though. Without a firm date I can't commit to it, just don't know what I'll be doing on an unspecified date some time in the next month and a half...

This right here. Evenings on weekdays work best for me and anytime on the weekends.
Overall, the answer is definitely YES! Would love to participate!
Some will say the glass is half full,
Others will say the glass is half empty,
I say just give me the drink! Cheers!

This was on my To Do List. But I failed to do it.

Now I'm in France, and because of that, my PayPal needs to be converted to a French PayPal, and the Debit Card I use, must be one in France. So my U.S. card I have with PayPal, must be changed.

Because of my circumstances, and only able to talk very little French. I currently don't have a French Debit Card.

I hope to get one in the next week or two; than I have to cross my fingers and hope that this French Debit Card will be accepted with my converted PayPal.

I wish there was an alternative to PayPal.

If I could just use my Visa, I'd make a payment donation now.

If I had made a donation, I sure would attend a brief log in just to sample the character creation.

Reasonably modern video card bought and installed. Vacation days left. Barring an act of God (or the opposite, I guess), I will be happy to test the connection from Norway! But please make sure we are informed in advance by mail. It can be hard to keep up via the forum.

Wow, this poll has a very positive response.

I'm going to tell a short story -- sort of an inside baseball story.

For 2 years we've been planning for an increased tempo of community tests and alphas. Good news, we're getting closer and closer! But one of the things that none of us on the dev can tell is this -- if we offer a testing situation, will anybody come?

After all, the login test is really, really useful to us. But it's just a chance to login and chat for all of you.

Although, theoretically, there could be some kind of badge that arrives later...maybe, but then it might be likely.

Anyway, this question of will you participate just went up on the polls, and we already have 40 yes answers! That does make us feel great.

And for those who may be wondering, we are planning to try to get 100 heroes into the login test, because if we can logon 100 heroes, and get decent FPS, then we know for sure we can conduct 50 man raids and invasions, with 50+ enemies.

But what if 200 people want to do the login test? Then we'll do two of them. :)

No one gets left behind.

One of the devs asked me this morning what we'll do if 10,000 want to do the login test? I told him that he and I would run them on per hour, ten per day, for ten days. When he wakes up, I'll tell you what else he had to say. :)

But seriously, if can get 100, we are set. Likely a Saturday, since that seems to be the day of the week that is easiest for people.

I want to add that there are a lot of people interested in the game that are not very chatty on the forums. For example, last month we had 101 people login to the forums one day. That same day there were about 35 votes in whatever poll was running, and 10 forum posts. Of those 10 posts, 6 of them were by Consultant, Golden Ace or myself, three of the top 4 posters on these forums. In other words, there are a lot more people reading the forums than participating in them.

On the MMORPG.com forums there were two people asking why the login test was running late that are not even members of the SoH community.

I think that two things will happen when the login test happens;
1 - lots more people joining the forums
2 - lots more people putting their money where their mouths are just to check out how the game is progressing. There are a lot of people out there pining for a CoH style MMORPG...

If there were 10 000 people paying $25 each and they all wanted to participate, I'd be happy to wait a few days in line! Or even weeks. Hopefully there will be media coverage, at least if it is successful.
