    Um, what I meant by "can't post images or video" was the NDA. I didn't realize I was literally unable to.

  • 6:30PM AU time. This should be prime time for players in Australia right? But there are zero servers and zero players and not just in AU - but world wide! Not good enough. I want to play!

    How can i test (or recommend) this game if i cant play it?

    It was 8:35am in EU so no wonder that the servers are empty.
  • Wha,,, why are you talking EU? There are USA servers and the AU servers which were also empty. When we are in AU (one of the largest gaming cultures in the world) but have to worry about EU server times just to get a game on,,, well something needs attention right,,,

    Not quiet right. You still forget it is a closed beta. Let's look at the numbers. Closed beta means few players. Let's assume there are about 2000 Keys distributed at the moment.
    Now let's look at the locations. 4 Locations are there. US east, US west, EU and AU. 25% for keys in each region. So 500 left for AU. From those 500 Keys about 50% do not even attend the game or try it once. Makes 250. Fromt those 250 50% or more try the game once, but becose of BETA and bugs stop playing until release. 125 left. And that are only a few reasons. If you go on like that, at the end you get about 2-10 people left who "might" continuely play per region. As this variets from time to time, you will have those peaks of playernumbers coming from EU and US as those dominate the playerbase at the moment as far as i can tell from talking to players.

    TL;DR Wait till the beta is "open" for everyone to have more players playing the game.

    There is no change in player numbers for nearly a year, no idea why you think it was more populated 5 months ago.

    Anyway I prefer to say exclusive rather than dead, can't really be dead if it's not born yet.
  • I signed up for the beta. very eager to try this game out lol :p

    Hello all. I'm from California and want to know what is the best time to catch a active server. I tried about 3 nights and servers seem like a ghost town. I would love to get some gameplay action fun with you all.

    The best time to play is 5PM-9PM PST Or earlier but it will be on EU servers most likely

    Exactly, more keys to scare more ppl away. I guess there are already 1000+ keys out and 10 players are left ...

    I know the people out here are not very patient and they don't understand the word BETA. So the best thing is for the devs to see who from the west coast is accessing there servers and hand them 2 keys and get some friends involved. My cousin just got a key Sesti1 you can bet anything me and him will be running on west coast servers. This leveling up is killing the game. People join empty servers to level up when I joined they say go find your own server and leave...

  • ive looked on google ask and bing and i can find a way to buy\get a beta key can someomnetell me how to get one
  • Every single server is dead not one person is in a single one of them. Anyone want to play? ;-;
  • It sure looks like it. I just re-installed the game today. I'm a veteran/founder but I had to drop the game because it crashed my previous rig a lot. It used to have at least 2 full servers in alpha. Found 1 guy on US prime time and we just had a chat.

    I should have some free time on Friday (after 6pm PST)-Sunday this week. This past week and 1/2 has been crazy busy for me. Looking forward to some gameplay.

    What are your guys names in-game, because I play most evenings with usually 10-20 others and I don't recognise seeing you in there.
  • Hi,

    Should not you can do a BIG keys giveaway (something like 500~) for having more players plays day'n'night ? cause only play between few hours by day and can't play the night, or only on US server, driving me crazy. Why dont you give more key please ? We need more players for more fraggs and more fraggs for more fun !
  • When you sign up for the beta How long does it normally take to get access to the game
  • I'm from Arizona, and would be willing to play most weekends and possibly some days during the week. This game looks really cool, I just saw it on steam today and would really like to play. If you need people to populate the West Coast, you always have me as an option.
  • I'm kinda new to this game/forum, and I was wondering if you could answer this. If I get lucky enough for a beta key, would my progress save if I got the steam version? Or would it make me restart?
  • @grumpyGasoline‌ Currently, it is impossible to access the game anyway other than through steam. You may be able to download it elsewhere but it problems are sure to arise such as incapability to play the game.

    @twinklingMuffin‌ It definitely varies. You should anticipate waiting approximately a week. Some games constantly pump out keys while others only give them out in waves. Good luck mate.

    keys are sent in waves, signing up puts you in the queue, people have been waiting for months at times

  • Hey.

    I am wondering, will this game stop getting updated when it comes to public? I played for example Tribes ascend. It was open beta and there were many players. Than it came out of beta and never got updated again. And so it lost all players even it is good game... Please don't do same mistake!

    We simply don't know yet. But it's fair to expect lots of smaller updates to keep the gameplay up to standards. Besides that, content updates of course. Such a new Mercs and maps. Perhaps even things like skins for guns :o
