Ending the Alpha Stress Test

Ryan Dancey


Players, some exciting news.

Our stress tests this weekend indicate that the server performance has improved to the point where it exceeds our minimum qualification requirements to move the project to the start of Early Enrollment.

The team is on Christmas break but we are still doing some basic housekeeping tasks in preparation for some monumental announcements just over the horizon. One of those things is changing the code to reflect the correct permissions for Early Enrollment.

So it is with a little bit of wistfulness but a heart full of excitement that I'm announcing that we're ending the Alpha Stress Test period this afternoon.

After we make the necessary server side changes the only people who will be able to access the game will be those with Alpha or Early Enrollment accounts. People who had Alpha Access via a friend & family invite or other mechanism will no longer be able to log in. Nor will users with Explorer or Open Enrollment access. (Remember - you can always upgrade your account in the Goblinworks.com store!)

We thank everyone for helping us with the Alpha Test. Without your participation and feedback we would not have been able to achieve the huge improvement in the game that Alpha has represented. Due to your help Crowdforging we've been able to get core game systems aligned with your expectations and to verify that the various systems are working as intended (or within parameters we'll accept in the short term).

Have a great Holiday!

Nice and congrats to the major step taken!

With the new office and new year (just around the corner!), how about a bundled QA/office tour/team intro video? smile I for one think that would be sweet.
