    Tried the beta, I like the games but because of vision related issues, I can't play it. The Droids on the beta map blended perfectly into the terrain for me, I literally couldn't see them. As with other Dice games in the modern era, I can't distinguish the character models from the environment.



    Hmm. So I guess it wasn't just me having that problem. I'm still going to play though since there will be plenty of maps without players being droids or I could be one of the droids myself if I am on the imperial side during a round.

  • What the crap, still no Beta ETA?

    The only thing that really has gone wrong is that the company keeps telling people that Beta 1 or the announcement of Beta 1 are coming "soon" when in reality they have proven unable to estimate dates at all accurately.

    They should just be quiet about dates and should only report progress that is being made on the game until they have an actual firm date to report.
    The problem with that is if you're not reporting something than there's an empty space of information.  Next thing you know rumors start to spring up and there are a lot of fires to be put out.  People start demanding to know if the rumors are true. Better to give some type of information even if it turns out to need to be changed than to say nothing.
    CSE gives out almost too much information about what they are working on in every Friday's update. Not talking about dates doesn't mean they stop talking about the work they are doing.

  • Camelot Unchained - Beta incoming any time soon?

    If you don't understand why somebody would want to play an RvR only game for years, then CU probably isn't for you. Many CU backers also can't understand why anyone would want to play a PvE heavy game for years. News flash: different players have different preferences and like different types of games.

    Fortunately there were more than enough players who did find the idea of an RvR only game appealing that CU funded. And if it actually is a good RvR only game at launch, then it won't have any trouble keeping enough of those players subscribing to remain open for years too.

  • Really quiet here, is this game stalled?

    I think ignoring the game until much later in beta is a good idea for backers or potential future players who aren't really interested in actually testing the game as it develops. Launch won't be happening anytime soon and when Beta 1 starts is still a big question mark despite the optimism that comes from CSE every Friday.
