They said in that last video that pre-alpha testing will begin soon. Of course, soon could mean anytime between now and next year. But what exactly is "pre-alpha" testing? Nothing comes before alpha in the Greek alphabet, so what does the "pre" mean? Is it where they stick one toe in the water just to test the temperature and if it feels comfortable, then they put both feet in next?
Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.
If people been paying attention the last 5 years the gaming industry has changed a LOT.No longer are things done simple and obvious,everything now is marketing deception,cover ups,promises yada yada.This PRE idea is simply trying to be careful on what players should expect.To simply say Alpha,players automatically think "ok it's close,should be a good look".Then if looks awful,everyone jumps all over it and damage is done.This game has to be very careful,they do not have unlimited marketing budgets to fire up fancy videos like Blizzard and others,so they have to make sure each step is a good one.Personally i kind of already have a pretty good idea of what to expect in most of the game design.I'll be straight up frank,i am not expecting magic here but i am hoping there is enough creativity to get me involved,i really yearn for a new mmorpg.
Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.
A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not the desire to beat others.
