Well, I'm going to reserve judgement for now, as there's still too many variables. All I can say is, I'll be bummed if your long-range predictions come true. I think Kroan's dates are more likely to be what I would consider realistic, although I hope beta may be a little sooner and run a little longer. I also think there will definitely be closed & open beta components.

One other suggestion for the podcast. Could you put a proper outro in? I listen in my iPhone, and have to check if it actually finished, or if something went wrong and the audio just cut off/stopped playing for some reason.

That's a good suggestion, Idus. Maybe we'll make that a future contest?

1. What date will all of us be in the alpha?
29th November

2. What date will PVE hit?
I imagine it will trickle in, so it's hard to put a date on it. I'd guess the first piece of PvE content (maybe the Arena) will be December 10th

3. What date will open beta begin?
January 8th

When will we get our kickstarter rewards?
January 8th (same day as open beta, which will be preceded by the alpha wipe)

4. What date will Hex officially launch?
March 14th

5. On a scale of 0-10, how playable will the servers be on day one of launch? (0 = zero uptime, 10 = flawless)
9

6. What will be number of accounts in the first month after launch?
500k

7. What race will be the most popular?
Shin'hare at first, but quickly moving to Orcs
