Re: Firefall public beta weekend

I played for quite a bit with KrisN I was going between heavy and engineer.

I would say you need both a heavy and medic for those high level drill events when there is a ton of mobs going for it the rest of the "dps" can be the rest of the classes.

I unlocked 3 skill points for the heavy and 2 for the engineer. This game is a lot of fun.

This week I will purchase my founders pack so we will have more beta invites for the DSLR folks.

It's going to be F2P, Founders gets you the perma XP boosts and a big head start on leveling, as well as permanent beta (if you didn't have it from another Founder inviting you) until the game is released.

Oh damn, I didn't even know it was a F2P game. That's even better!

This game is supposed to have WoW like raids when all is said and done.

and some sort of WvW GW2ish when all is said and done

with mounts

this will be the go-to game for WoWers imo who want fps and f2p

We are excited to announce that on the weekend of January 25th, Red 5 Studios™ will be hosting our January Firefall™ Beta Weekend!

Starting at 10:00am PDT on January 25th and continuing through 11:59pm PDT on January 27th 2013, we will be unlocking the servers and allowing anybody who registers for Firefall access to the beta. This means that anyone who has yet to experience the war torn Earth will now have the chance to defend the Earth against the mysterious Chosen, explore the land of New Eden, and face off against their fellow players in fast-paced PvP.

Additionally, throughout the weekend, players who take part in our Beta Weekend will unlock an exclusive in-game decal for use on their many Battleframes! To get your exclusive decal, all you have to do is log in during the Beta Weekend. Following the Beta Weekend, you’ll be able to obtain your badge of honor at the New You station in game.

During our Firefall Beta Weekend, we’re offering players the chance to win themselves a huge Firefall prize package, including a Razer 2013 Deathadder mouse and Firefall swag!

If you try to log in right now, all you get is a logo screen. They must have the servers down or something until this next Beta weekend? I dont know.

Haven't touched a computer in a while but I remember playing once with an army of engineers. There were three of us and we had turrets everywhere and it got ridiculous.

I tried. I don't think I can screen shot it. It's the screen that reads "United Armies of the Accord"

It's as if the servers are down. Not sure.

I bought a Founders Pack though, so I dunno which beta you got in...

Have you alt-tabbed and let it through your firewall? It takes a minute or two to load...

I got it figured out. The damn game needed to be patched.

The game patch option only came up when I ran the launcher, not the client application

So has anyone else been playing this still? I played quite a bit this weekend and really enjoyed it. In fact I enjoyed it so much I ponied up for the founder's club. I have some screenies I'll post later tonight (if I remember). I'm still figuring it out but love the gameplay and upgrade trees.

Sweet! I have seen reports in chat that they will not be wiping the beta characters on launch. If so that's a hell of a head start. I'm enjoying the dreadnaught so far although I've barely started progressing.

VioletVenom See Profile, how often do they hand out those beta keys like the one you gave me?

What I've seen in their forums is that they won't be wiping exp. Makes no mention of resources. I would hope anything bought with red beans would be immune to any wipe.

I'm not sure if they give out more invites to founders or not. I've still got a couple left if you were wanting to hand some out.

PM sent. Thanks yo!

So is questing disabled after the Trans Hub missions? You guys just thumping like bosses to gain xp? I think it is, I'm just making sure I'm not part of a beta bug here, Google seems somewhat contradictory on this point.

I have had very little time for Firefall, but when I have had time this is my impression.

What is the WoW affect?

The WoW affect, is that after playing WoW, when you play other games you expect the game to be a certain way, and when it's not, you think the game is bad.

I suffered the WoW affect when I first started playing GW2. But once I got over that hump, now I love GW2 more than I ever loved WoW.

But what's happening now?

Now I am suffering the GW2 affect when I play Firefall. When I play Firefall, the open world feels dead, even though it is pretty. It just feels cold. Why? Because after playing GW2 and it's dynamic vibrant world, Firefall open world feels lack luster!

I need to play Firefall more to make a real determination if I like it or not. But at this point, when I play Firefall, it just makes me itch more to go back to Tyria!
