BETA thread deleted, replaced with ALPHA 2.0 - Closed Beta Launch ETA

Offline
#1 Lilithian
Hi Maguss staff,

me and I believe others are looking forward to closed beta launch, which is scheduled on today - 20.12.

What confuses me is lack of official information and ETA about the launch.

Also, the subtle removal of BETA thread in Early testing section of forum seems rather strange.

Would you please explain in more detail what is going on? We won't be angry at you in any case, you know us Smile

Hello, you might wonder why Alpha 2.0. Well, the game is still a work in progress. After the release of the first version, we thought that by now we would have added significantly more content and improved player progression. However, we found out that the battle system didn’t work correctly. Therefore, we decided to rebuild the code. It allowed us to prepare everything for the implementation of a party system and we got rid of many battle related bugs. Unfortunately, it also pushed us back by 2 weeks. Nevertheless, we believe it was all worth it as we have improved the game. For more information about our future plans follow the link http://forum.maguss.org/thread-334.html
As previously, we won't post the exact release time as we are not sure yet. However the game will be released today.
You have a lot to be excited about, stay tuned!

Thank you for your fast response.

I was just confused about BETA being renamed to ALPHA 2.0 without proper explanation beforehand. The deletion of whole BETA testing section of forum startled me as it looked like BETA is being pushed back again - which would be perfectly fine if explained why is that happening Smile

I understand that the amount of user input to game development is huge and we are very thankful for that. No need to be ashamed of pushing back releases - it is for our own good and we know it.

Looking forward for new build of the game!

Hi. I have backed up for the closed beta + the wand. With This change of plan, does it mean alpha 2.0 is considered as the closed beta and I will be able to play the game the 20th December, or is it still reserved for the alpha tester and I will have to wait longuer ? Thanks for clerifying this Smile

There will be several wipe-outs.

It's common that closed beta testing stage of a product has wipes. Once open beta deploys, the progress will be permanent Smile
