Apologies to the admin team if this breaks mold. Close and delete if necessary.

Is there a clause in there about discussing whether or not you're enjoying the game so far? Because people have been relatively mum about their satisfaction with it. Just wondering, sorry!

EDIT: I am not a Beta-tester hence I don't have a copy of the NDA. I'm assuming they aren't public.

Accoring to what ive read even saying your in beta is a break of NDA. However I think elmer played it at E3, can ask him what he thought of it there.. i could be wrong though or I could have misspelled his name

I didn't even think of that. But that makes sense, now.

This brings up an interesting question. Did the people that played the alpha/beta at any of the gamecons have to sign an NDA to try them out?

Probably not as at that specific time frame it was open and public. But didnt get much info from that time.. well we got a few good things though.

I kinda doubt it, as gameplay footage was filmed and shown to the public.

Isn't there a copy of the NDA available to the public? I swear I saw something when signing up for the Beta... it's been so long, however, I could just be wishing I'd seen it so I could have been playing already. ;) Could have also been discussed in the "don't break the NDA" threads.

Regardless, discussing any element of the game, including your satisfaction (or perhaps lack thereof), I would imagine is considered breaking the NDA. I mean, if someone were to talk about whether or not they were enjoying the Beta of a game, they'd want to qualify their feelings - which would require them to reveal elements of the game that were good/bad/whatever - thus breaking the NDA.

The first rule of fight club is you don't talk about fight club. ;)

In order to sign up for the beta, you had to agree to and (ostensibly) read the NDA. If you go back to the beta signup area, you'll be able to find it.
