On the TRIBES Vengeance Beta

A forum thread on the TribalWar Forums offers details on plans for TRIBES Vengeance closed beta testing, describing the process, and pimping pre-orders as the way to raise your chances of participation from 1% to 100%:
Closed beta is simply a small link from "no beta" to the "open beta". We're using it to iron out major issues, and get the game to the level of stability required before starting open beta. There are certain issues you simply don't want to try to fix while 50,000 people are bitching that they can't play. Closed beta will let us fix all of those early.

Closed beta will be very small. We've had over 10,000 people register for the beta so far, and there doesn't seem to be a slowdown in sight. We will have less than 250 total openings in the closed beta until the Tribal-Wars LAN in late July. Of those, I've already filled about 100, which leaves 150 for those of you who are still hoping to get in. With my current database, that gives you less than a 1.5% chance of being selected. By the end of the week I estimate that your chances will go down to well below 1%.

However, if you want to take part in the beta there is a way you can have a 100% chance of getting in. Go to your local EBGames, or GameStop and pre-order (Marweas did it at Software Etc for $5) and then register for the Tribal-Wars LAN. Bring your receipt and you'll get a beta CD and you'll be in. I highly suggest that you do this now, because once the T-Ws spots fill up you won't have any way to get into the beta.

Gee this pre-ordering system game companies are doing now is great. You get to play the game 3 days before its released for the mere act of securing their fiscal quarter revenue.

It's almost as good as letting John Romero anally rape your cat while singing the star spangled banner. I love that song.

USA! USA! USA! USA!

Yeah, except in this case Tribal-Wars is in July (www.tribal-wars.com) and Tribes: Vengeance comes out in October. A little more than three days.

How about shoving your dead body in an Arby's dumpster. Does that replace wit?

All this V wubbing is killing me. If the hype keeps up, fans might actually try V and forget about the T2 mess. Even the dev team is here. For those who didn't get it, the dude who posted message #3 is the PR rep.

I think the whole point here is to try to white-wash the horrible memory that was T2. Because T:V will indeed be good ngfm. I hope?

I thought you would appreciate the change from cynicism to sarcasm. I guess there's just no pleasing you. Good day to you sir.

Well crap - I'd pay the registration fee just to get in on the beta. Who needs to stay and play?

well hopefully you stay, because you probably would be wasting a spot that someone who actually wants to play would like.

Denouncing a cynical post with a cynical post. Bet that took a lot of thought as well.

I believe that's "eggscellent! *rubs hands*".

T:V looks good, and getting the community involved early is a smart move. Plus Irrational tends to ship quality product.

Eggscellent! *rubs hands*
