SmokeJumper in IRC


Quotes:
<SmokeJumperPS> Okay...good news. We're most likely going to dramatically increase the number of testers in the next week or 10 days.
<SmokeJumperPS> We've got 216 in right now. Probably go up past 500 right away. Maybe break 1000.

<SmokeJumperPS> I think I have something over 30K apps filled out correctly right now.
<SmokeJumperPS> WAY more applied...just most of them did it wrong.

<IR-Wintermute> Which pool are they being drawn from?
<SmokeJumperPS> IR-Wintermute...both pools.
<SmokeJumperPS> It's all one pool.

<Sandmtrailboss> Were the new lowered requirements also lowered for the beta?
<SmokeJumperPS> Sandmtrailboss...I'm still doing group sorts of types of systems. Therefore, we're not stress testing the real low end yet until everything is moving and shaking on the better systems.
<Tobias> Is it true the TR use's goggles because they are cheaper then buying the more protective face plates that the Vanu and NC use?
<SmokeJumperPS> But yeah...we're letting lowend systems in also. Just not many of them yet.
<SmokeJumperPS> Tobias...efficiency in all respects. Always.

<OmnipotentKiwi> So what were the mistakes, and is there any way to know if we screwed up our apps? You're making me worry over here =P
<SmokeJumperPS> OmnipotentKiwi...don't worry. The mistakes were usually things like not finishing the app or leaving blanks or not delivering a DXDiag file. If they just did everything that was asked, then there's no issues.

<SmokeJumperPS> Open Beta will be on discs. WAY too many builds going out for downloads. It would kill our bandwidth costs.
<SmokeJumperPS> 20000+ sets of 3CDs going out. That'll cost a pretty penny.

<OmnipotentKiwi> So are you going to charge beta testers to work for you, like SWG? Even though you probably have no control over that. =P
<SmokeJumperPS> Nope. No charge for discs.
<SmokeJumperPS> Not currently anyway.

<OmnipotentKiwi> I want a cert tree or beta! =P
<SmokeJumperPS> Cert tree is in flux. Not yet.

<SmokeJumperPS> You're a good man, OmnipotentKiwi

<Tobias> Question? Is it as addicting as Everquest was?
<SmokeJumperPS> Tobias...I have never considered any MMO as "addictive". But if you're asking if it's as engrossing...to the point where you can lose a day to it because you get so involved...oh hell yeah.

<SmokeJumperPS> Yeah. I should also. Glad to talk to you folks for a bit. Thanks for the chat.

Tobias has a point.

By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increase to lethal proficiency makes the master of the gun katas an adversary not to be taken lightly.

30,000 correctly filled outs. A vast majority of the apps were incorrectly filled out and/or incomplete.

So that's right everyone, over half the people who want to play this game are complete retards.



Thank goodness for the stupid who improve my chances to get into beta

LOL KIWI! props!

I bet a bunch of people didnt check off the multiple "I accept" stuff inside the terms of agreement, non-disclosure legal jargon. If you didnt click on the link and actually read it you would have never known it was there because there was a check box next to the link that says "I accept" if I remember correctly.

I'm telling Smokejumper! This post is clearly in violation of your NDA, and as such you must forfeit your beta spot to me.
