    Ya got mine also.  Curious are you a prime member?  I am plus I live in Seattle, was wondering what if any impact that might have had.

    Got it, not a prime member. I was maybe 4 years ago and get the free trial whenever they offer it to me, hehe.

    This seems like a AAA life is feudal, no?  I'm slightly interested.

    My ignore list finally has one occupant after 12 years. I am the strongest supporter of free speech on here, but free speech does not mean forced listening. Have fun my friend. Hope you find a new stalking target.

    Been looking at the info on this game, and it looks like a PVP Survival Game like Rust. Hope I am wrong about that.

    No Problem. Actually the reason why I posted. Like myself, I'm sure no one was expecting it.

    I'm sure there is an NDA. You are disclosing information about the game. May want to delete that post.

    The New World subreddit states that you not allowed to say if you are in the alpha/beta/whatever.

    2.7 Beta Tests. We may offer access to confidential, preview, early access, alpha, beta, kappa, or similarly designated pre-release versions of our Games (collectively, “Beta Tests”).

    Please note that these versions may have limited features, may be available to play only during limited times, and may contain other limitations.

    If you participate in a Beta Test that we designate as confidential, you will keep all information about that Beta Test (including the Game and Game Content and related features and functionality provided in the Beta Test) and your participation confidential, including after public announcement of the Beta Test, until we give you authorization that you may disclose this information.

    Source: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201482650


    So I would refrain from saying if you are in the alpha/beta. Its unlikely that they will do anything but still its said that you can not say.

    Please just stop...

    And if you want to play Beta Police you should also understand that obviously, you get an Email invite prior to being able to accept any kind of NDA or TOS.  So saying "I got an invite" can't, by definition... break such.

    I'm just saying that by saying you are in the alpha/beta by there own tos they can remove you for doing so. Heck they can remove you from it for any reason tbh. Just figured it was worth pointing out that is all.

    He's not wrong, folks. Read your NDAs.

    Fuck NDA's. They're solely designed for crappy devs to hide the subpar quality for their games while raking in pre-order money. If you're not using the same username for mmorpg.com as you are for their beta, how they gonna find you? Keylog your machine? Tinfoil hats are my specialty if you wish to buy one.

    Your screen has a unique ID number plastered all over the screen. Therefore no streaming or screen sharing. Other than that? No one would know based on a random forum name on a random gaming site.

    All this is silly and NDAs always have been handled silly. This is not some government secrets. It is a flippin video game.

    Feelin' peckish this morning? :)

    While I agree with you in general, I figure that "it's the right thing to do" when you sign your name to a document that asks you not to talk about the thing that you're doing. 

    Adherence to the dictates of the NDA, even if it's just a "flippin video game", is an internal philosophy focused on honesty. If I practice this line of thinking in the little things like this, it then will carry into the bigger things in life.

    The right thing to do?

    Telling people you are in an Alpha without actually saying anything about the game itself?

    Well, I haven't signed my name agreeing to anything yet. I simply got an email with the subject "You’re in! Welcome to the New World Alpha Test". Seems fair game to be able to disclose that information.

    It is fair. Just because someone like yourself got an Alpha invite does not make you responsible for adhering to an NDA that you never signed. 
    It is ridiculous to think otherwise.

    Exactly. 
    Maybe the next Email from Amazon should say: “You have been selected to send us $10,000” and contain a link to a User Agreement that says you can’t tell anyone.
