    This seems weird and way too early.You would do the test when you are ready to release the game so the timing is just way off.I thought this was delayed until next year to add more to the game?

    Part of the issue i had was the world looked empty,so i assume they are not going to change that sadly.
    This might also tell me that whatever they are doing to upgrade the game is going to be very little,likely instance work and maybe some added stat ideas.Is this whole delay thing a smokescreen,they are just moving people to other projects and waiting their time for a better more lucrative release date?
    Like all the people who test this are going to know if anything is done for the release next year.

    "SELECT"beta sign ups will be in,so if your name is Asmongold,Pewdee pie or a website your in,everyone else,forget it.

    I might give the game a try again if they ever figure out what they want the game to be. During the tests nothing really stood out about this game. It seemed like a poor survival game that had lots of people on the server. The combat felt average at best. Maybe the game just isnt for me, but when I play survival games likes, Ark, Wurm Online, ect. part of what draws me in is the finding a place of my own in the world out away from the masses. Can't do in that in a MMO Scale Survival game.

    That title is given to anyone that buys it by default.

    This game is out of my mind till 2021 at the earliest, even then it's gone down the pecking order.

    Ya I'm not looking at this till Amazon Studio starts telling us about what content they have added. Sad that a gaming going into Alpha has more content. Backed both Pantheon and Ashes and I have watched many dungeon crawls on both games.

    Testing the density of the players is always a good idea......

    Gotta find those dense enough to have unwavering unquestioning belief in Amazon.

    Except this is only a test of meaningless proportions,this no way compares to say a mad rush of maybe even 2 million players all trying to play.

    If they have any issues with maybe 100/200-300 they should fire their networking team right now.Like how many players is this going to be,they could test this on 2 server machines?

    It seems like this is actually just your typical everyday pre order push ,you know we've seen this before,BUY NOW and you can beta test....umm yeah ok.
    I have seen sooooooooooo much advertising on the internet i can usually spot it right away but this didn't really strike me as that except nothing else makes any sense,the timing of this especially is questionable.

    I'll be glad to help test, but I am not going to pay to play an alpha or beta build.

    It seems that the new business model is to stay in perpetual alpha or beta, and charge for it.

    Mmos use more than one machine. If you know the limits of one, you can get a decent idea for the limits of more.

    looking at the screenshots, the low ceiling for the sky maps well, looks very low. Reminds me a lot of a few Rift zones that did't quite scale vertically creating a basement effect .

    Weird timing for this event unless they're thinking of going more open world than instanced in their latest change of direction and delay.

    You usually want to do these server load tests at the end of beta just before release, not when you just pushed back the release date by 9 months. Very weird timing.

    The stress test is disappointing, I have given up for now. The goals for the day are

    - Day 1: July 30, starting at 2PM PT – Complete the tutorial and reach a settlement

    It has been impossible to complete the tutorial or get more than 1 minute into it without it "detecting lag" and then resetting me to the beginning of the tutorial. The look is great although character creating options need a few more choices but right now it's unplayable and I don't mean that I expect a full game experience but after 15+ runs trying to get through the tutorial and never able to last more than 5 minutes before it resets me, there's nothing to say except they need ore stability just to achieve the stated daily goal.

    I guess... mission accomplished? They wanted to test the density.. er eh.. I guess server load. So they win, but everyone hoping to play, such as yourself, loses.

    Well I was hoping to play to help them test it out not just to get a free sample. It's just frustrating not to be able to achieve the limited goals they set. Hopefully some people are!

    Let me log back in and see if I can at least grab a screen shot, it looks good. image

    You're either a trooper or a masochist. I guess let us know how it goes haha. Since they are doing an expanded play test pretty soon for a ton of more people, getting things hammered out now is their best bet. I hope they are able to.
