This pesky guy asking questions again :-)
Now - I was quite impressed, relatively, with how well the servers held their own in a beta environment. Certainly Friday had some issues, but things seemed to roll from DEFCON 1 to DEFCON 5, if you catch my drift, quite flawlessly and rather quickly.
I'm just curious as to what happens during the next beta phases, from your experience or insight:
- Do invite codes continue to be sent? I have a couple of friends who had signed up for the beta from the website (albeit not being former 1.0 owners or anything) and did not get a code. Could they expect to have one before "Phase 3 Test 2", meaning, does this usually happen?
- Do patches come out within a beta phase, or do they gather and fix / tweak issues only when the phase is completed? I'd love to see some added map functionality, for instance (namely, the circle telling you where to go for a quest being blue instead of dark orange, or something which could help us differentiate it from the map colours)
- We should expect Test 2 to be next weekend, right?
As always, thanks a lot for your replies and insight, much appreciated! =)
