Can Crowfall be in Alpha Now?

Since both CU and CF started development around the same time, wouldn't that be the assumption?    Camelot Unchained has 9 days to hit ALPHA or it'll be delayed.   I haven't heard of any delays from Jacobs yet, but we also haven't heard any news. I have to bet they are crunching with crowfall's announcement going public this month.

    I have not followed either game all that much, but i will say this and it might help give you maybe a better idea.  The average mmo will be in development for at least 3-5 years before it goes into the alpha stage.  But with most games (including mmo's) the majority of alpha is done in house and/or utilizing people under a strict NDA(non0discolsure agreement).  Even if crowfall offers open alpha test it will most likely be towards the end as the game inches towards beta.

    Do you like lollipops? Suck it. Don't bite you greedy twit.

    Alpha is greek for "Spoiling the game experience"

    Just because one company can get a game to alpha stage in a certain amount of time does not mean another company can do the same thing.

     

    Either way with the amount of people that constantly cry about alpha being buggy and not working and not having all the features it best to keep away from that.. I hate to say that as i enjoy testing games myself but recently the net just seems full of people crying about everything so its best to keep alpha access closed down or very expensive so only people who really want to test it can.

    How we know they are not in Alpha

    No external folks are playing the game, not even FnF program is running

    I do wonder if there is room in the market for CF and CU. Seems like a head to head match up. Myself I am a little upset CU has no PvE. Who comes out first could be a big play into what game does well if they are evenly matched.

    They're making the Guinean race in an upcoming stream.  Not showcasing it, MAKING it.  The game isn't quite ready for alpha yet.  Which is fine.  Let it become awesome.

    A game can not have all the classes and races and still be in Alpha.

    It's still pre-alpha, quite a ways to go.

    Yeah so I think Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm suck. Atleast they came out with betas... Alpha is a bad idea. Cook it for 6 more months then release a beta if you must...

    PvE is in the game, for 1000th time, it is just not going to be the same as all the other games with quest hubs and grinding. There is going to be dragons and shit also, not sure what you are so upset about. 

    I highly doubt Crowfall is in Alpha and who cares about alpha anyway. They are going to go to Kickstarter or some other place to get some money for the game, they already said this.

    Guess it depends on what you consider "Alpha", but looks like something is playable..

    I think the alpha will start soon... They've just announced on Crowfall forums that the Kickstarter will start tomorrow morning.

    Early access will be available to certain backers
