i got the closed beta invite today and downloaded the game. the servers are up for 2 hours starting at 10pm EST. i looked forward to it, then bam! for some reason i have to redownload the whole 4 gigs. that leaves me about 20 minutes of playtime to give feedback or bug reports. how is this productive?

 

edit: download slowed half speed so I probably won't even be able to try it out tonight. I'm assuming this is a technical problem that will be sorted out but was really looking forward to giving feedback for this game.

    wow ok so I just tried to play again today. now this is probably mostly my fault, but apparently the servers were up from 7-9 EST today instead of 10-12 EST like last time.

    The download went smooth, but it's past 10 EST right now and therefore I can't play yet again.

    Having servers open for 2 hours on select days within random hours makes it very hard to actually play. And believe me I have nothing else to do but play games. I can't imagine how hard it is for people who actually have a job or family or responsibilities.

    But i will just let this slide... it is still very early stages of the game but they make it so very difficult to give feedback.

    open server for 2 hours per time is just stupid. But hey they must know what there are doing...

    Maybe they are testing their download server capacity?

    I'm not in the beta, so I don't know about this beta, but isn't information that OP is posting normally under NDA?

    I do not believe I am breaking NDA. Just complaining about the lack of game time available to actually play.
