    I'm curious do the people who BROKE the NDA and streamed at any point prior get in trouble? If not whats the point of the NDA and telling us To remember its in effect. If they get off then what does that say about the vadality of the NDA?

    Smedley actually tweeted before and allowed one of the streamers to do it while they figured it out. I think they just decided that they didn't care about the people that were first up on Twitch. Here's a Reddit post about it:

    Without a doubt, the smartest move he could have made.

    Let the hype begin.

    unlike a different game company we all know that is keeping everything under wraps just a couple months out from release :)

    Wait SOE removed the NDA and is offering refunds for EQN Landmark? Am I in the twilight zone?!?!?

    A brave move considering how many bugs were around on the first day but it certainly shows they're confident of fixing things fairly quickly.

    bugs in an early alpha? no way

    SoE is making all the right moves lately (aside from the unfortunate closure of Vanguard).  They really have come a long way.

  • SpeiberbobSpeiberbob MunichPosts: 233Member
    If they handle this alright, they make a big step to up their reputation again.

    You call a game 2-3 months from release early Alpha? What a joke.    Much more appropriate to call it open beta.  Unless you consider that it is likely the first year of Landmark after release will be Alpha quality as Landmark is likely just being made to hype EQN and for  an extra cash grab while they develop EQN.

    Are you a prophet? I mean, the release will be when the release will be. I know a couple of titles that got pushed YEARS from the announced or speculated release dates.

    Open beta means anyone can get in without paying. At the most cynical its a closed paid beta.

    Either way they have been honest about the state the game is in and what people should expect. What stage of pre-launch they call it after releasing all that information is kind of irrelevant isn't it?  Also they haven't set a release date, so it could be in closed beta for 6 months for all we know.  Some games have closed betas for close to a year,  ESO has been in closed beta for over 6 months now.

    It is what it is, they said the game is still in early stages but you can pay to get in and help shape the game. If that interests you then go for it, if you want to wait until they have a polished product then do that and judge the game on its merits when they say its actually done and ready for mass consumption.

    Now that the NDA is gone, you'll find out quickly that it's indeed an alpha crashity-mccrash unreliable piece of half-finished software.  It's barely playable at best.

    However, I can't really dispute that if it's indeed 2-3 months from release, SOE has a megaton of work to do and not much history to suggest they can, so I can't get on your case about the cash grab.  I hope they realize if they need more time, they have to take it to get this right. We all know the history of releasing games because they have to, not because they're ready for live play, and what happens after that.

    Smed and Co. are giving the *impression* they have "seen the light" and found a better way to do things, but I can't buy in until they actually put out a quality product.  There's plenty of time to fall back to old habits and wreck the project.

    People who buy the settler pack get access to closed beta and recieve their items on March 31st. I assume March 31 will either be closed beta or release based on this?

    It is exactly what it says it is, closed beta. Not release. After closed beta they will have an open beta, so 3 months would be a bare minimum expectation for launch, but closed beta could get dragged out much longer.

    Close, rape, destroy and neglect countless other games! Lift and NDA on a new incomplete game and all is forgiven...

    Some of you people... LOL
