    Buy into NON 24/7 Beta

    No thanks. I personally will not be wasting money on buying into "beta events", any good gamer can learn the game by watching streamers as if they were playing it themselves.

    https://www.archeagegame.com/en/news...ions-archeage/

    "What is Alpha and Beta?
    The 24/7 private Alpha test helps us validate both gameplay and technology while building up the initial community of experts who are willing to share their experiences with others. ArcheAge will have a series of Beta events before launch. These events will give you a chance to see the game and will also serve as a test of our servers and the service integrations that we’ve made between ArcheAge and our systems."

    Sadly scapes confirmed in twitch chat today that there will only be closed beta events (a.k.a beta weekends) there had better be some good ♥♥♥♥ in the founders pack if they want people to buy it, because I know some people aren't going to pay just to get into a few weekends. Personally the beta weekend idea is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, that model just doesn't fit Archeage. They need to do a full 24/7 closed beta, with pubic stress test weekends, and allow people to buy into the closed beta with founders packs.

    P.s I feel like Trion is trying too hard to try and hype the game, giving keys to streamers is cool, but the beta weekend thing is just going to piss people off.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I think beta weekends will be awesome for stress testing. I wish the buy in option for founders would be 24/7 access though. Make the beta weekends for anyone to really get some stress on the servers. Either way just to play a little has me excited. I will take what I can get at this point and just keep looking forward to that release day.

    Yeah, that is the exact way it should be.

    If I wasn't playing Alpha, I would totally pay to play even on weekends. The game is worth it. In fact, even as an Alpha player, if I was told I had to pay to play during Beta events, I would absolutely do so. I don't expect to have to, but I am more than willing.

    Did he confirm that it would be this way for all packs? Trove has alpha and beta packs. I would assume the mid tier and up AA founders pack will include alpha access.

    No game is worth paying whatever amount to play a couple-few weekends a month for 3+ months. Just a waste of time when the game can be easily learned else where. With wipes coming before launch there is absolutely no point in playing this only on the weekends.

    The major concern might be server stability at that point.
    Look at Everquest Next Landmark. Alpha servers the first week got bombed by people. And that was 60$ and up!
