It just made more sense to me to create a key chain here where I would at least HOPE that the people posting aren't just people that decided to create an account to try to get a beta invite like the majority of the Firefall forums are.
Looks interesting. Hope it does well. Please toss my name to the end of the list of people looking for a testing invite.
I am expecting it to crash before login (I am lucky enough to crash before login on almost every beta lol)
D3 crash upon login
Tera, crash on splash screen
Aion, crash on charac creation
Guild Wars error on login
GW2 error on login (lol)
SWTOR error on character creation
Yes so lucky here to report and wait and try to help fix and clean teh shit that hits the fan
F2P is codeword for "pay to be competitive" and honestly, with all of these companies switching to this model, it has to actually generate more money. So, they will actually be making more money off of something that we are used to only paying $50-$60 and possibly a subscription if it is a mmo.

tons of others.
Would you care to show some examples of games where this, "pay to be competitive" aspect is present? I will conceded that some of the smaller Asian MMO's do sell power through their cash shops, but the overwhelming majority of the big title games do not come close to doing that.

I enjoyed Global Agenda, and am currently loving Tribes, so I'm interested in getting on the key chain.
Firefall forum name is Kumduh
Their FPS rates and general server stability is quite well done, as being in a lot of other Betas over the years it is comparably more stable.
In all honesty it seems like they really tried to get the game mechanics and world stable before they tried throwing 1000 quests into the game, which i believe is a good thing. As in get the foundations sturdy before building your house on top of it. which is where I find a lot of betas fall behind because they try to push out the quests whilst the surroundings are still faulty, making for frustration when trying to bug-fix quests, since you are generally unsure if it was the quest bugged or the game mechanics/game world.
Just got my beta key as well. Minutes after I bought D3 .... SERIOUSLY
I've walked the realms of the dead. I have seen the infinite dark. Nothing you say. Or do. Could possibly frighten me.We are not monsters! We are not the mindless wretches of a ghoul army! NO! We are a force even more terrifying! We are the chill in a coward's spine! We are the instruments of an unyielding ire! WE ARE THE FORSAKEN!Those who do not stand with the Forsaken stand against them. And those who stand against the Forsaken will not stand long.
I got a beta invite this morning as well. I spent some time PVPing today and had a blast. IMO it's every bit as fun as TF2 on the pvp side. I have problems landing hits with some of the weapons though. Maybe its the weird crosshairs but at times I felt like I was lightin somebody up and they were taking no damage. Really hoping they add a way to change or even remove the crosshairs.
