  1. Lol what you on about bruv? Closed Beta is running since 2016, over 250 members. Just because you couldn't make it to CBT list to try the game for yourself, doesn't mean that nothing is going on.
  2. Care to explain more? Because for example MrXLink explained why it would be a good change:

    Not outside of the game itself.

    Yes, but "permissions" can be "revoked". Also, permissions are nowhere near equal to having full copyright over a game or IP.

    Open Beta Information

    The problem here is, we openly admitted to reverse engineering the game, which already by itself breaks a law about copyright and intellectual property. Needless to say, every company in it's ToS or EULA has reverse engineering and other forms of game manipulation prohibited, so that again is not on our side. Yes, the game was free and so were the files (if we can even call them free files), however since EA still exists, they are still the valid owners of BattleForge Intellectual Property and all of it's content. Meaning, whenever they feel someone is violating or devaluing their IP they can take legal actions and in most cases end up as winners. I don't know how RO developers made it, but congratulations - seems like they had good preparation or lawyers or whatever (since I haven't heard about this until your post).

    Cluster and MySQL

    Well, you misunderstood what I was pointing out, maybe I described it too vaguely (it was described much more in detail in one of the past dev posts). So, the clustering is tied to the Game servers, not the database. Meaning, Matchmaking server decides which of the few Game servers will specific match be played on. This will make the performance much better and take the load off of one common Game server (if we had went for that option). As for the MySQL, we're using one database and have made our own connection pooling and quite frankly everything works good and more or less "fast".

    Important: Open Beta Status Announcement

    Why would you be sorry? I'm opened to constructive, argument-supported criticism. I'm not denying I don't sometimes go "over the line" with certain phrases and statements. Some people might not be emphatic with us whatsoever, and we don't go around stating the same and blatantly complaining. That said, you can't really expect professionalism from some of us, for which this is the first bigger project with this amount of people. Understanding can be achieved from both sides, but frankly I'm at the point of trying my best to talk with different minded people the argumented way. If I feel people are too stubborn, I may sometimes overreact or just simply stop responding (it's usually the latter).

    Yet again, whatever I say, people will find a way to make it negative or draw out unintended negative parts. My posts have no intentions of harming anyone's feelings.

    Yes, that's true, and it backfired on us - no one's denying it I went over the line with hype build-up.

    Important: Open Beta Status Announcement

    It's not our own fault that EA failed miserably and had to shut down this game. Is there any other alternative to playing this game? No, there isn't, so I guess you'll have to wait a tad bit longer for this to come out, whether you like it or not. I've been working on this project for almost 3 years now, and still getting bashed by "people" like you. We don't owe anything to anyone, let that sink in first! No one is a passive aggressive b***h, I don't know how you people making psychological assumptions based on a single sentence. Also, better watch your mouth, you're certainly breaking forum rules.

    So you're bothered by the whole communication we're having with you as a community? That's the impression I got from your statement, just as the hype part you got from mine. Weekly dev posts are not enough? Discord or forums' private messages anytime as well? Streams also? Out of everything you can and could have quoted, you're still tied to those two words "no time", which, as me and you said, have different time frame in everyone's point of view.

    QUOTE: "When bugs like "accepting group invites causing the crash of the world server" got fixed just now, then it seems like there is still a very long way to go until the game is ready for an OB release." ANSWER: There is a lot of context missing from those kinds of changes, because I tend to simplify and generalize those changes for the public so people can read nice changelog instead of the one few pages long, which is pointless and boring, both to write and read. QUOTE: "The "in no time" line was already a month ago." ANSWER: So? "in no time" is not a valid period/interval of the time itself, thus can last anywhere from 1 month to 1 year (in my point of view). QUOTE: "I'm obviously not a programmer but to me it seems very possible that it could very well take another few months until the game is ready for an OB release. " ANSWER: Yes, sorry for trying to make this game as bug free as possible. Rather have a stable and working game with satisfied community than unstable and crashing one with people raging for the inability of having servers up for consistent 12 hours. QUOTE: "Statements like the above cause unnecessary hype, and when hyped up expectations can't be fulfilled there will be disappointment and ultimately hate. " ANSWER: That statement was not intended to create any more hype, I just can't see how you got that feeling out of it.

    I saw something on this, could you elaborate more? What is that exactly, and doesn't that concern the items that are bought with real life money?
