Alpha is quickly approaching, so let's have a contest! Guess the correct date that the Hex Alpha will be playable and win this internet cookie. This Web Gingerbread Man is a perfect choice for all your Hex Forum posts, showing itself as an award on your signature. Enjoy the envy of the entire Hex community by guessing correctly and flaunting the gingery tastiness that is this cookie in front of all.

1037

Contest rules:
1.) Only one guess per forum account
2.) The correct date is when the servers first go live for Alpha (GMT to be fair). (ie: If multiple Alpha invites are sent out, the first wave to officially log into the Hex servers and complete a game)
3.) Those who guess the winning date will be rewarded with the fabulous internet cookie shown above.



UPDATED 9.10.13
Jmard5 is our tentative winner for guessing the correct date of October 8th. Keep in mind that the contest rules dictate the Official Alpha start date is set in GMT Time after the first game is completed on the server. If the Alpha is delayed, the winner will change.

September 27th is my guess. Last Friday of the month, and CZE likes handing their updates out on Fridays.

My guess would have been 27th September, but someone already got that so I'll go with the 26th.
Also, might be worth mentioning what time zone you're measuring by ;)

I don't think the cookie is exclusive! We live in the age of FREE INTERNET COOKIES, might as well revel in it.

Also, did I miss an announcement where the alpha was being delayed some more, or are the October guesses fueled by skepticism?

As they used to say on the Discworld MUD when we asked when new features would be done testing, "Thursday."

Xenavire

My gut says the 24th of this month. They said they are planning to announce the date and do a pre-alpha stream, so we have this Friday at least (to announce the stream.) Then I expect the stream to be between Wenesday and Friday the week after, and the alpha launch to come the week after that.

I think earlier in the week would be a good idea, so they can iron out bugs and stabilise the servers before the weekend, so I think Tuesday is a good bet (similar timing to Blizzard, for reference.)

So the 24th feels about right.

The person who told me had some good reasoning for thinking around the 15th - largely that they've made a point of not rushing things, and they'd rather have a crisp, working client than getting it out by the end of September. Essentially, that the end of Sept was CZE's best case scenario, but it wouldn't be surprising for there to be a slight delay.

Sept 20th.

Monday, September 30, 2013. This is the absolute latest to still be considered end of September. This gives them two additional weeks as a buffer.

I expect a final pre-Alpha update on September 27, 2013, followed by a stream during the weekend then doors open on Monday morning. This also gives them a full work-week to sort out issues once Alpha launches.

That's not to say that they won't let users start downloading over that weekend. I expect weekly major client patches and daily server-side maintenance with daily hotfix client patches (for immediate issues).

Sat 28 September would have been my guess; they will be streaming Friday 27th before delivering the game, which might be hours to a day after that stream ;)

October first, because they will try really hard to squeeze it into September, but the games that weekend are too good: Seahawks vs Texans, Pats vs Falcons, and hopefully Eagles will not be proven to be a fluke by then against the Broncos.

They are catering to nerds and international players. I highly doubt American football will have any influence on the release date.

It isn't like you can't do both in the same day/weekend anyway. Just set aside some time before or after the 'big games', and you will be fine.

Although I honestly think they will aim to be up and running well before then.

Sept 23th.

EDIT:
Reason for that is because tuesdays are tactical "release" dates. It allows them to make last minute fixes on monday and additional fixes on tuesday to friday if major issues pop up. Of course it isn't really a release since it is just the alpha start but it would still be best to bring it out on a tuesday, otherwise they will have to work throughout the weekend. A lot of companies choose tuesday as their day for releases.

RIFT release: Tuesday march 1st 2011.
GW2: Tuesday aug 28th 2012
SWTOR: Tuesday december 20th 2011
Blizzard patch days: Tuesday US/Wednesday EU.
Mists of Pandaria: Tuesday sept 25th 2012

See the similarities?

Those are all retail launch dates. This is only Alpha.

Not to mention that Tuesdays have to do with shipping co-ordination for retail stores as well whereas Hex is entirely digital with no physical copies.

Edit: I should also note that Tuesdays are typically a North American thing as well.

What i expect.
This friday: we get info on stream date, and maybe a bit alpha info.
Next friday: stream and rest info
friday 27 sept: alpha.

But i hope alpha start monday 23rd or tuesday 24th. Simpel reason is, something that been program always causes problem in one way or another. And companies jsut seem to be worse fixing problems in weekends.

Would be awesome if a mod took this opportunity to reveal the actual date. I guess he would win.

I already mentioned Sept. 24th as my idea of a release day and why in another thread, so I will stick with that day. If however nothing is said this Friday in the news letter, I would think October might be more valid as surely by now they would know the date if releasing in September.

If i were a betting man id say the stream will say the 23rd ( why not start the alpha at the beginning of the week and make things easy, and not on the harder days, eg weekends.

If its not the 23rd, id vote the 27th, as some odd reason companies like to starter betas on friday.

Why do you find it so odd, Friday is generally a time where a lot of people have the weekend off of work, they want to give more people an opportunity to play so that's why companies generally do betas on weekends. Simple. Or am I missing something?

They do open betas on weekends. I have seen many betas be on seemingly random days. Alphas even more so.

Betas of short duration, like just a couple days, are on the weekends. However this is an alpha and will be going on for months. They'll want to start it near the beginning of their work week rather than having people work the weekend or not being available if there's an emergency.

They said limited PvE would be in Beta, so Alpha seems unlikely, or simply an advance version of what Beta is meant to bring. In short, if theres any it won't be much.

I cant see Alpha going live upon the announcement. I could see it sometime the week of the 23rd. Tuesday would be great to start the Alpha because many MMO's do maintenance. This would give many players a chance to get on HEX while your MMO is down. BUT this means that Sat(21)-Mon(23) Crypto would have to do their Stream of the Alpha.

I'm expecting a "start your engines" update this weekend that lets people start to work out their accounts (ie if you're merging your Kickstarter Pledges and what your account details are, etc.) Then the following week's update to provide a pre-loader for the Alpha launch on 29/30.

Actually for Alpha they dont have to do any account merges. They only need to email those backers to setup an Alpha account. It would probably be better to merge at that time but I'd be happy to get a user/pass from CZE to log in and start alpha'ing (new word).

A bit later than I'd like personally because I'm off work next week - not that I took it just to hope to play Hex!

Also guess it will be in waves, and I won't be in the first. :(

thegreybetween
09-19-2013, 11:35 AM
I'll put in an arbitrary vote for Thursday, 9/26. The reason is simple enough: I'll be way too busy to play on that day, and isn't that just how luck seems to run? So far, my relationship with HEX can best be described as "Late to the party."

for the reason you stated of it been in waves, am hoping sooner the better. so everyone will get in by the end on September.

Xenavire
09-19-2013, 12:02 PM
If they want everyone in by the end of september, they probably need to start this weekend to be safe. One mistake and a wave could end up delayed, holding up the whole set of waves.

As for me, I had the misfortune of finding Hex on the first day - over a week before my paycheck, and on a month that I was not rolling in money, so my late king is going to limp me into a late position. I would wager that waves will be in 1000-2000 lots, and I will be in between waves 5 and 10, depending. So I can count on being at least a week later, but in that time I can watch all the Hex news roll out and drool the days away.

General rule 2 : wait when server to be truly started, not when they announce that he will be :)

Tomorrow.
Ok, that's not going to happen but it would be nice.

The person who told me had some good reasoning for thinking around the 15th - largely that they've made a point of not rushing things, and they'd rather have a crisp, working client than getting it out by the end of September. Essentially, that the end of Sept was CZE's best case scenario, but it wouldn't be surprising for there to be a slight delay.

If it's working and crisp then it's not an alpha.

Update is taking longer than normal.
Sign of the alpha.

I'd bet its a sign of delay before alpha release.

Doesn't count, you posted after it was announced. :)

October 8th!

Jmard5 is our first winner for guessing the correct date!

Additional winner may be announced if the date changes. Keep in mind that the contest rules dictate the Official Alpha start date is set in GMT Time after the first game is completed on the server.

I'm not really sure how you're going to validate that though. :)

I plan on checking who posted what date, that it's unedited, and wait for someone on the forums to post a screencap or twitch feed of the first live game for Hex's alpha. :)

Though, because of the goofy GMT requirement, it'll actually be Oct 16th by contest rules. I think that PDT is a better standard, because a) that's where CZE is, and b) that's where I am. :P

I don't think a winner can really be declared until the game is up and running and people have successfully logged on, but not my contest.

Technically he hasn't won yet.

So until it launches or gets delayed we won't know for sure :P

I'm just glad I got within 5 days of the expected launch.

Sorry for necro, if this counts...

Do recent events mean that 10/8 guesses were incorrect? ;)

That's for the OP to decide i guess, but there is a good chance they were based on this


Alpha is quickly approaching, so let's have a contest! Guess the correct date that the Hex Alpha will be playable and win this internet cookie.
