Secondly, many games launch with issues - WoW, EQ2, Vanguard, WAR, ***, etc. Heck Vangard was unplayable for many people due to program issues.

My recomendation to you, is that you should avoid betas, and releases. Don't consider a game, until it has been about 3 months after launch. You will be much happier.

I've been in betas before. Most open betas are not this bad.

Serious connection issues and graphics driver issues are not the sort of problems you should be having at this stage.

If those are the betas you were in then I'm not surprised you think they're all going to be bad. You've never seen a good or even adequate one.

Besides this isn't even an open beta.

Funny...it seems to be called an Open Beta...

Anyway, yes connection issues and graphics driver issues ARE the sorts of problems we want worked out now...rather than the usual way with some companies - resolving them the first week of release!

I'd love to hear specific which OB were not this bad? I don't think I have ever played one that went really well - which is the point.

It seems Cryptic needs to push this game back for another 6-9 months.

The Tabula Rasa beta was pretty good. Of course TR had its own flaws but the beta itself was stable.
The Fallen Earth beta went very well too.

Although I wasn't in it I heard the CoH beta went well after initial problems.


Also yeah you can not call this an open beta. An open beta is when there's no limit on keys, you just make an account, download the client and bam you're in. Quite a few sites that you can get keys from demand a subscription to their site in exchange.

The same thing was said in the Champions beta by almost everyone who was in it. Even pillocks said similar things albeit not as well worded as other responses.

The fallen earth beta was a ****in disaster i was on closed beta for that game and it had just as many if not more problems,the log in server was ALWAYS crashing.I cant remember a beta that ive been on that didnt have problems but then thats the idea of a BETA,how can you complane about a game you havent paid for ,your ment to be playing it to help them fix the bugs not to complain about them.

Yeah but aside from the login server the rest of the game was fine. If you got in then it was all green milk and mutant bee honey.
