    Seemed pretty solid after I finally got in. Pretty much lag free despite so many people cramped into the same starting area (which is why i'm taking a small break from it, some quests just didn't work so well with so many people trying to do them at the same time)

    please don't take this BETA as the actual game, its the only beta they have had any real problems tbh as I have played all of them. Its because instead of the usual VIP beta players and the rest now virtually everyone can play due to handing out beta codes left right and centre! I'm not playing this beta or any more after as I don't want to just play to get my chat wiped when ill be able to play in a month or so!

    Currently playing : Darkfall
    Character name : Aeola Anara
    Played: Almost every P2P MMO you can get your hands on, notably:
    Daoc, SWG, LOTRO, WAR, AoC + Dozens more

    Actually Beta 1 was a train wreck.  I'm at work so I don't know how bad this one is, but I have an idea.  LOL

    They get it settled soon, going by their past track record.

    I had bought beer for this Beta event but now I've had too many beers to actually care :P

     

    (It would be cool to know what the percents actually mean. 49%, 89%, 75%, WHAT DOES IT MEAN?)

     

    And it's not 8:47 either, it's 21:47 despite setting the correct time zone.

    "The fifth beta event, Battle of The Ascended, was set to begin today at 10:00AM PST.  However, due to the large amount of users attempting to log in, many have found themselves unable to connect to the servers.  Over 10,000 people have been keeping a watchful eye on the official forums, where Senior Community Manager “Abigale” had this to say -

    We know that some of you are having issues getting logged into RIFT today. We are working to get the kinks out and get you all into Telara.

    Thanks for helping us test out all of these systems! That’s what beta is all about!

    Stress tests have always been a major part of beta testing, and hopefully the data collected from the mass of people trying to log in will ensure that Rift’s launch goes smoothly, and that they can get the event started as soon as possible."

    Isn't this the beta they have sent out the most invitations for? That might explain the problems. Although it doesn't justify them :) You have to be ready for what you ask for, especially if you are aiming to take on the behemoth of the industry...."We're Not in Azeroth Anymore" lol

    They dont have to justify, its pretty much open and a stress test... nothing more to be said.

    I apologize for the next to unreadable text in my paste, got no idea why it turned out that way.

    Beta 1 needed quite a few fixes the first day.  Including respawn rates and bottle necks on quests.  Mainly starting area issues from mass amount of people.  By the second day most of the immediate issues were addressed.  By the next event the rest of the stuff was addressed.

    To explain how this beta is I will list the things that botherd me in the games current state:

    My blue elf thing jumps like a bitch.

    There are no body sliders.

    And thats it for whats wrong at this point. Speaking of my pantsy ass blue Elf, hes a dual wielding warrior, that can use ranged magic spells and has a pet. This is the best game ever.

    They just took the server down.  :(

    The explanation is that it's an elf thing and they always jump like gays cause they are gays.

    Only for 30mins. Most likely to fix some peoples problems with logging in.

  • firefly2003firefly2003 Member UncommonPosts: 2,527

    Im not having any problems so far, FPS drops from time to time , trying to figure out how to close the general chat so I dont have to see the idiotic spam spewing from people's dirty mouths...


  • Kaynos1972Kaynos1972 Member Posts: 2,316

    Nice beta experience so far, tried to log at 2PM (11 AM PST) fail to log to the server, tried an hour later, fail to log to the server, now 2 hours later same thing.  Nice, nice !  Why invite so many peoples if you cant even get the logging server working ?

    I just clicked OK on the failed to connect prompt a few times and got in.

  • Kaynos1972Kaynos1972 Member Posts: 2,316

    Looks like the server are more down then up, anyway i still havent been able to log in at all so far.  I know it's beta, i expect lag, server restart, but can we at least be able to log ?  Not impress.

  • skurk81skurk81 Member UncommonPosts: 48

    At least getting to the server select screen in EU beta now, locks on everyone though and can't select any.

  • Unknown23Unknown23 Member Posts: 47

    servers down.

    didn't even get to play one minute today.

    oh well, have until friday.

  • ogenatorogenator Member Posts: 7

    The servers where taken down, expected time 30 mins it was told in the chat. there also is a small patch it seems and they are working on the issue. and for all those complaining. its better to have it now than at release, this weeks beta is pretty much a mass stress test with all the invites going around.

  • skurk81skurk81 Member UncommonPosts: 48

    Looks like the classic western MMO phenomena. NA gets proper support while EU gets some obscure third party company, no support and gets to "suga broschans kyyyk".
