What about future additions, you ask? Well, stability tests for Phase 3 will continue until December 2. We will resume adding testers from the day after, December 3. Now, this wasn’t actually part of our original plan, but in order to handle the additional server load, we’re going to open a third alpha world that same day.


So, good luck again.

Hopefully they'll announce when they've actually sent the email out.

I am so proud of you guys. It's 9:45pm Central and not one complaint, /rage, or sad face about Alpha emails. Smiley: smile

No you're right, invites have gone out, but they didn't officially announce anything, I assume to cut down on the crying. There is thread on the lodestone though and apparently people have been invited today.

So I am waiting for my invite, just like last round and I get this email from SE: http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg92/WFOAssassin/SEWOOT.jpg



I see the "Square Enix NA" sender and I quickly click it, I didn't read the subject line, like I'm sure you all did, I was so freakin boosted. When I opened it I found this... http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg92/WFOAssassin/SEdeniedcopy.jpg




Same thing last time too, different email but still. I guess they know thousands of people will open anything from SE today so they might as well send you some new advertising. I guess its a good idea but **** it, I was so excited. COME ON SE! Smiley: frown

Is it against the NDA to announce whether or not we have received an Alpha invite?

I wanted to add, since it seems I'm being doubted, that you really can't disclose if you are in the alpha or not:

The Alpha NDA wrote:
2.6 Alpha Tester’s Confidentiality Obligations

“Confidential Information” shall mean (a) any and all information relating to or contained in the Products, Software, Documentation, or other materials supplied to Alpha Tester by Company in connection with the Alpha Testing, including, without limitation, information relating to the performance, conditions, capabilities, and contents of the Products and Software, methods of reporting and conducting, modification schedule, modification process and its progress in the Alpha Testing, AND RECIPIENT’S FEEDBACK, OPINIONS, SUGGESTIONS, AND COMMENTS (POSITIVE AND/OR NEGATIVE) REGARDING THE PRODUCT AND THE SOFTWARE, (b) the existence and the terms of this Agreement, (c) the Square Enix ID and password used by Alpha Tester, or by any other Alpha Tester, (d) THE IDENTITY OF ALPHA TESTER AND THE FACT THAT ALPHA TESTER IS PARTICIPATING IN THE ALPHA TEST, and (e) any and all information relating to the future or proposed products, services, or business operations of Company. Confidential Information includes, without limitation, all such information disclosed to Alpha Tester prior to the execution of this Agreement. Alpha Tester acknowledges and agrees that the Confidential Information constitutes valuable trade secrets of Company and (subject to the other terms of this Section 2.6) agrees to keep Confidential all Confidential Information, and only use Confidential Information in connection with Alpha Tester’s participation in the Alpha Test. Alpha Tester shall not disclose, publish, distribute, transmit, post, or otherwise make available, directly or indirectly, any Confidential Information to Others.


Emphasis mine.

I would like to point out the following....

Now If I pair this together correctly...

Quote:
“Confidential Information” shall mean
Quote:
(b) the existence and the terms of this Agreement,


To me that means that this agreement can never exist. Or does it mean that IF I am an Alpha tester I have to deny the existence of a NDA?

In that case, If the Alpha test were the real game y'all would be happy. Just look at the videos... That's where I get my information from.

If I'm wrong... Here is your nuke button.
