Operation Open Beta targeted for November Tue, 28 September 2010 18:10
Our recon team recently observed some movement behind the front lines. Their current assessment is that Operation Open Beta will launch sometimes in November. We will report more as the troops build-up begins...

Count me in as a volunteer for an open beta.

With 16 years experience as a software developer I know how to identify, document & report problems.

I am happy to have been part of the early conscripts for Memoir'44 Online and will be happy when the second wave of soldiers arrive. Should give us more players to play with.

by "Open Beta", does that mean open to everyone,
or will we need to form an orderly queue?

Great question, Vulch! Smile

My understanding from a while back was that more players would be added to the Beta pool but that the system wasn't yet ready to handle everyone. DoW has some magical programers working on this project so it's possible they're at a point where they can open the game to everyone...but I'm guessing it will still be somewhat limited.

This is a great question for a DoW team member, and I'm sure they will answer it soon. Cool

My guess is that they have some users they are planning to enroll into Operation Open Beta as that will give them better control over the workload they will be getting once Operation Open Beta starts. But just my guess and as Jesse said, a good question for the DOW team to answer.

I am of course (with no thought for my own safety), volunteering for this arduous and dangerous mission.

I have completed my "next of kin" form and had a complete set of innoculations (for meeting Johnny Foreigner).

My Stiff Upper Lip has been specially waxed and I have ironed creases in my shorts.

Tally Ho chaps!

Open Beta is intended to mean Open to everyone - well at least anyone that agrees to abide by the terms and limitations of the Open Beta program, which we'll post when we're ready.

That being said, we will have to see how well our servers - and code - handle the load. But for now at least, the plan is to let anyone interested and willing in.

More news once we get closer - we aren't quite there yet and still have a lot on our plate before then. Rolling Eyes

Happy Day!! That means there will be plenty of people to play against and lots of new friends to make on the battle field. Very Happy I'm looking forward to seeing new and familiar people online when Open Beta launches.

Not to state the obvious, but it would seem that this thread should maybe be sticky - like the announcement for the first beta in June was...

I know there isn't a lot of activity in this forum but I suspect that might change in the coming weeks.

Oh Happy Day!!!

I can't wait to try this out.

I've been playing another game, Dungeon Twister, online and have met many great people all over the world.

I can't wait to do the same with another one of my favorites. I'm sure that playing against veterans will teach me some good lessons.

Thank goodness! I have been waiting (patiently) since June for an open beta test. Guess I better put in some quality time with the 'ol lady this weekend. With this and deer season starting soon I don't think she'll be seeing me for a while!

Been looking forward to this for a long time, glad to hear progress is being made. I just want to say thanks to everyone who is making this possible, from the dev team to the play-testers, and of course, DoW staff in general. w00t!!

Sign me up when the public beta begins for sure. I lost my playing partner some time ago and have not played in quite a while, though I try to keep up with the new product releases and game related news as often as I can.

We, former Beta testers, are just waiting for new opponents...
Hope you'll be there Twisted Evil
