I know a lot is invested into hex, and everyone wants this to come out sooner rather then later. But I have seen many games become unsuccessful because the release date was rushed, and frankly the game was not ready.

Well they know and they appear to do exactly the opposite of rushing. Alpha was initially scheduled end of August and beta 3 weeks later. Now alpha is scheduled at the end of the month and beta at the end/beginning of the year.

You gotta remember that it has been in development close to 3 or so already :P

For some reason I thought this was a cautionary thread regarding everyone rushing to login to the game at the same time.

No indication the game is being rushed.

Haha, I too thought that this was a thread asking us players not to rush through the game too quickly.

As to HEX not being rushed by Crypto, all has been said. They are not going to rush it, don't worry :-)

The one thing we don't have to worry about is CZE rushing this game.

While they are under a lot of pressure and expectation to get the game to us as quickly as possible, they have made it abundantly clear that the company will not sacrifice game quality to put the game out to the public sooner rather than later.

End of the year? Whaa? Link? They need open Beta up before next gen platforms release.

Currently Alpha is scheduled at end of the month, while Beta several months after Alpha

While I do not want the game rushed and a crappy product pushed out early. I would like a relatively stable date set for beta. I have several friends (non kick starters) who are losing interest because I cannot give them a time frame for when this will come out.
