What a joke

mayito7777mayito7777 Saint Cloud, FLPosts: 636Member Uncommon

This Beta is the biggest joke ever, after so many months of Alpha and testing and all this crap, the Beta is launched, the game never stops patching, cannot access the main Trion site to ask for a refund, cannot acces the forums, cannot access the ask a question, no one single dev has bother to give an explanation, good grief Trion is this the way you do bussiness. I cannot speak about the game because I cannot test it. LOL what is happening to the gaming industry?

 

My honest opinion, do not pre-order this game you will save your money and a lot of headaches.

    My opinion

    Do not preorder a game you know very little about to get into Beta and then want a refund when things are not up to your expectations.

  • gotcha89gotcha89 WestdorpPosts: 34Member

    Yes the patcher has still some problems. It keeps patching because when the download gets interrupted the patcher starts over again in a new folder.

    But still don't forget this is a beta. and it is your mistake that your only reason to pre order the game is to get beta access. If you had more patient you didn't have this problem

    Right click the launcher icon and run as administrator. Solved the problem for me.

    If you go to the Beta forum there are hundreds of players in the PC side with the same problem, every time I try to access the forum or the main webpage or account or support I get this message

     

    "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

     

    I tried running as administrator, I turned off the Firewall, nothing the same thing

     

    I f you go here there are dozens of topic about the same thing

    Why would you ask for a refund when its not even the product you paid for? If the launch game doesn't work, well then by all means ask for a refund. But the beta client by its very nature is not guarenteed to work properly. I'm sure they will fix the issue, but these things are not always a quick and easy fix.

    The patcher works fine for me fyi.

    Trion is one of the better MMO companies out there.

    If you don't like the game that is understandable, but I wouldn't bad mouth a company over problems with a beta test.  

  • oreal52oreal52 KøbenhavnPosts: 76Member Uncommon

    The patcher works for me , no any problem.

    I can access the forum anytime.

    I'm feeling lucky, Trion ... Please Take My Money !

    If you don't like something just because it's not the thing you expected doesn't mean others cannot like it.

    And now it's your turn dear OP to feel lucky, there are planty of other games out there to play with just pick another one.

    And i hope you will find a game to play with that will entertain you the way you want,so you won't come here again

     to cry about a game that you don't like because you have technical issues with a beta release.

    Wake up !

    Keep in mind, that after the launcher is downloading the initial files, he then start patching, which then says that it needs around 15 GB of free space in order to continue.

    At least that's what I got, and I had only 5 GB left after the first files. I needed to clear some GB's in order to continue! Check your partition free space and see if you have at least 15 GB . 

    Hope it helps.

    EDIT: If you don't have enough space, he keeps saying "patching", and he teoreticaly finishing patching, but then it starts all over, over and over again .. :)

    Reading this,  I thought, "ISad how this (the OP's serving whine with his cheese) what Beta  Testers have devolved to."

     

    Then I read all the posts after his and my faith in MMO beta testers was renewed. WTG! ;)

    You know...that's why it's called beta.

    Trion is screwing over their reputation fast.  The game goes live in just over a week, so they really can't lean on the whole "it's just a beta" crap.  What people see right now, is exactly what they are going to see when it's released.  They've really dropped the ball.

    Isn't this their first real beta test with a significant player base? There are bound to be some issues. Seems a bit early to go all Chicken Little over the affair.

     

    1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

    2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

    3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

    Its the beta crap because they need to overload the servers. The same thing happend with GW2 and many other mmo's. Trion is one of the best companys and they really listen to the players/customers. They havn't dropped the ball on anything. I can get in and play right now with no problems. This is one company I have never had a problem with and I'm happy to pay for the games they  make.

    lol yeah this is the final build. I'm sure they have a final build all ready to go but will add updates to it from this beta and improve the servers.

    When this game crashes and burns into mediocrity, I expect you to come here and admit you were wrong.

    But Wicked. You have to remember the #1 rule of online gaming. When "I" ("I" being the person having a technical problem) have a problem, it instantly means everyone else is also having the same exact problem and that game and company are a failure because since I cant play nobody else can either.

    It simply isnt possible that "I" am a very tiny percentage of the overall playerbase and there are a lot of people playing while I am unable to. No way. Just couldnt be. Never in the history of the internet has such a thing happened. If a few people have this problem it means everyone does and anyone who claims otherwise is a liar.

    You know...a final build you "add updates to" is not a final build, it is in fact not the same build either.

    I dint bother to use my beta invites so no idea about the status of the game but everyone knows refunds are off the table untill atleast product launch.   its stupit to even ask or expect a refund on any product thats cleary sold as "work in progress"  they dint deliver what they said due to still building it...   always wait till release before buying anyting if you cant stand loosing some money on a small gamble.

    You do realize that the OP's problem isn't with the gameplay but with the patcher?  Something that usually gets fixed by launch?  I had problems logging in tonight too, but hey, beta.

    in my opinion this game goes to beta too quickly it was no means ready for that. and also it amuses me that there is always and forever going to be people who pre order game with eyes closed and then cries about it when it wasnt what they expected it to be or whatever other reason they didnt bother to read before purchase! long live unpatient and unexperienced generation of gaming " kids "
  • BanquettoBanquetto CityPosts: 1,037Member Uncommon

    So, basically, OP paid to be punched in the balls (beta test a game that, being beta, has a bunch of bugs), and then cried when it hurt. Good show, kid.

  • PanthienPanthien ZaandamPosts: 559Member

    Rift had a simular issue with their patcher in one of their beta events, which got resolved during beta and worked just fine at release. But regardless no matter what stadium a beta is at you can expect difficulties.

    Even during retail pretty much every mmo/company ends up having some issues with their patcher, launcher, connection/game/patch servers.

    WoW for instance intentionally created a way to launch the game without the having to use the launcher. When their launcher has issues.

    Even though final beta weekend events are teaser weekends for a large part they still are part of their testing, including stress testing.
