Is 30 bucks worth playing the beta?

    The game is worth its weight in gold.  However since there are no physical copies, it has no weight so....

    I'm a big fan.  The trainwreck-about-to-happen pic in that other thread was classic.

    To the OP, only you can answer that.  To me?  lmao.. no.  But to others, it's freaking awesome.  /shrug

    you have to be pretty <insult> to pay for a beta...wait for the actual product, for some reviews and videos, then buy.

     

    or roll down your window and toss a few dollar bills.

    This also might end up being more entertaining depending on who is nearby when you toss the dollar bills out the window.  If you throw them out near a few bums, you may get more intense and balanced PVP in real life for less money!

    No beta is worth money, but then again you are not paying for the beta you're paying for the game at launch and the free 30days. Beta is a perk for buying into it early.

    I cant say much about the beta because of the NDA.

    i think it's worth it.  I talked to skorner before when he was on the fence and now skorner is a darkfall player

    The beta is only worth 30$ if you have a top notch computer. I mean top notch. If you have an average gaming computer, you will stay below 20-15-10 fps or worst and its unplayable.

    Dont worry for release tho. Only reason we have fps problem, is because the game is on debug mode. All i can do is farming in the safe zone, so i got bored really fast. If i go further, il get kill cuz there is no way i can protect myself with 10 fps.

    i too get horrible fps, however i did jump from 8 to 30 after a patch so they are improving it.  However debug mode is really killing things for me

I like the idea of a seamless world and the sandbox.

    I'd wait few weeks before buying the game. Currently client produces gigabytes of logs as you play - and even if you get 150+ FPS on high settings, from time to time you'll get noticeable pauses. After new year they've promised non-debug build of the game, whatever that means.

    not for this game, neither for any other. 

    But we usually do pay, so if you really loved DF1, buy it, log in, have your fix and log out. 

    The beta is unstable, meant for testing really. I have no fucking clue how those guys planned a november release with the game in the current state.

    All im going to say is that there is an NDA for a big sad reason.  not worth it, believe me.
  • PhryPhry HampshirePosts: 6,296Member Uncommon
    i wouldnt advise preordering any game at the moment, and there are enough questions about DF;UW at the moment to reinforce that precaution. Personally i'd wait and see how the game actually pans out, no telling how long before it comes out of Beta, by the time it does it may well have a free trial and/or be F2P with microtransactions.  image

    if you were going to buy the game already and just want to pre-order then go for it, but if you are wanting to test the game out and have some fun during "beta" then i wouldn't recommend it. if you are wanting to test, wait until the game is released first.

    They have to pay for a testing beta? What kind of shit is that? Early launch or trial beta, ok, but a "we are still building our game beta" meh. That just screams we need money now panic mode. To each his own I guess.

    Don't think you're in beta so you wouldn't know but there have been so many patches since it started

    The game was always in a releasable state since the 1st video you saw. DF wanted and still plan to release the game with incomplete feature and some bugs here and there. Some bugs and some incomplete feature are not game breackers. We played DF 1.0 beta for 2 years and we had so much fun so this is not gonna stop us from enjoying the game.

    The real and only problem currently and the reason why we're in debug mode with very small patch instead of small to big patches, is because that one bug is the most game breacking. Once you get that bug, you dont want to play anymore, you just think about quitting.

    I think everyone knows what that bug is. The bug that cause your inventory and your bank to be completely wiped out. You restart with your starter items and thats it and i think we still dont know what cause this exactly. We thought it was after a crash, but no. Even if you quit correctly, you may log back in and lose all your stuff. Its so random and annoying.

    There is a way to overcome this bug where you can keep your stuff... just read the  beta forums

    Sure, a mmo with persistence problems is very releasable. 

    I will not talk further into it, but there are MAJOR problems. But the game is good. Just not ready yet. 

     

    So... thats why i keep saying, buy it but don't expect a playable beta.

    The game is nowhere near playable right now. Obviously I cant elaborate due to the NDA but there are issues that, if the game was released on its initially planned date it would have been a ghost town within a month.

    Then what the hell have I been doing the past 3 days? Stop making ridiculous statements then throwing the NDA card.
