Hey guys,

I saw this Alpha Forum poping out, so I asume alpha has started, so how we going on now? :)

PS: Forum looks quite empty? =/ Or is this a permission issue?

Aren't you a clever little sleuth? :)

The forum hasn't been listed in the forum directory yet, so I'm guessing they created it but didn't intend people to find / use it yet.

I'm sure they'll make an announcement once things are officially up and running.

Denial... that's the sign.
Gwaer is probably basking in alpha sunlight now.....
Getting his alpha tan. Hording, to keep the ravanous alpha crazed zombies from finding out...
Hex.....dragging sounds, low moans... Hexx.... HEXXXXXXXX
Their comming! BOARD UP THE WINDOWS GWAER!

Sounds good. Just a few hours left really, at this point :)

It's nice to see that this new forum is receiving the same quality of posting as the rest of the forums have. It's good to maintain appearances. ;)

Well its good that they have it prepared. Hopefully it wont be flooded with complaints tonight/tomorrow by people expecting their Squire tier to have an invite already.

Because we all know it will happen.

Agreed. I'm just sad to know that my King Tier probably won't be released to alpha tomorrow and Tuesdays are my only day off... Here's to hoping that the servers are well equipped and they can let more people in on day one.

Yep, I am in a similar position - got another game due out this week, and I am sure my invite for Hex will arrive on the same day as my pre-order arrives. And I am playing my pre-ordered game first, because it is being spoiled all over the internet, and I am dodging bullets every day.

Yeah, I know I'm not getting in for at least a little while, being just a lowly King backer. But that won't stop me from dreaming about it. I am hoping everything goes well, so I can get in sooner, but I understand how alphas go. I do believe CZE is taking a good approach to the way they are letting people in a bit at a time.

At least I will (hopefully) be able to watch streams every free minute I have until I get in. I know that will help me pass the time until I get my invite. Too bad I will be at work during the launch day stream. Oh well just have to remind myself I will get in soon enough. Gotta start building decks and busting faces!

Yeah, except that we haven't even HAD the drug yet and we're addicted. We're ASKING for that first fix. Sometimes I disgust myself :)

So If I have no chance with low backer to start Alpha tomorrow then I can go out this week and come back in few weeks.

It is not pretty worth to pay tousands of Dollar for a Card Game >.<
Same as I don't understand why guys pay 500$ for Hearthstone Beta xD

Don't think of it like thousands for a card game, think of it like thousands for a hobby. A hunting or fishing expedition costs just as much. Season tickets for football are in this realm.

Yeah but fishing is some physical, this here is virtual and it will be shutdown on some day and all gone.

Your life itself is ephemeral and those fish turn into soil and water.

Have they told anyone what email they will be using for invites so that we can keep them out of our spam filters?

Keoni: Players will receive invitations per the pledged tier whether on Kickstarter or PayPal.

Access will be granted in phases; you will receive an email at your paypal's/KS email address when they are ready to invite your tier with your unique login and password

Alpha participants will be e-mailed a unique login and password to access the game. Input those details and hit the “Login” button.


(update #48 http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cze/hex-mmo-trading-card-game/posts)

Roll out plan

My hope is we do relatively small batches the first couple of days and based on that info we throttle it as high as we can reasonably go to get everyone in as quickly as possible. As an example: if we let in 500 people day one, 1000 day two, and the server is handling it no problem, we could go 5000 day three and the rest day four, but this is all based on server performance.

Tev: All backers will receive alpha access. Producers down to Grand Kings get in first, then we'll progressively bring in more people as the engineers give us the greenlight.

I think he meant what e-mail will Crypto be sending from so they can mark it safe and avoid it getting snagged by a spam filter.

As to that, who knows.
