Rough start for the Open Beta

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Rough start on Open Beta #3. We're looking at mission problems and removing some guns that shouldn't have been available. Bear with us.

 

Thanks,

Matt

the game runs smooth af now

 

on live im using a config to disable most of the high graphics and lowering settings that would cause bad performance but on the beta version of the engine i just lowered some settings like shadows, and im getting 145 fps capped.

 

really looking forward to this being released

Servers have been restarted.

 

Let's see if players start getting opposed missions and the dev gun should be gone from everyone's inventory.

 

Thanks,

Matt

Let me give a little context. In Live currently the districts are split into Green through Gold districts which helps to limit the matchmaking choices. On the beta, currently everyone threat level is in the same district. This causes issues with matchmaking when the population is fairly small. Since that is the case, we are moving to Open Conflict districts so that players can get matched for Missions. The side effect of this, is that we removed the type of district that is set as the Tutorial district, namely the normal Financial district. 

Players should be playing on their live accounts, using their current live characters. To help make sure that we funnel as many players as we can into the Open Conflict districts, we wont have a regular Financial districts up any longer meaning that creating new characters is not going to be possible for the remainder of this Open Beta. Hopefully some of this context will help you understand the decision process.

Clarification requested: Does this affect those of us who haven't had a chance to actually join the betas at all? Would like to know if I should even bother to download the beta client at this point, because if I can't join (with my characters from live server) then it would be a waste of time.

Live characters are available on the beta, it's why he says to use your live account and characters. It's creating new players, specifically in this beta, that isn't going to work. As he said, they've effectively removed the tutorial world, meaning you can't make new characters.

So is it not on then? Because I can't seem to be able to login...

I'm in the beta, using the clothes editor in social as I'm typing this, you'll want to figure out if you've got a network problem on your end preventing you from communicating with the server.

I ask for clarification because I've never logged into a beta yet (the tiny windows on previous betas conflicted with IRL work), so my characters would be "new" to the beta client/server.

They migrate the live database onto the beta servers, so the server already knows your characters.

I can log in to the live version with no problems. With the beta I just keep getting the "error 9".

 

Sorted it out. Manual login seems to work afterall, steam login just gives the error...

Yeah, not the same game and i don't think they connect to the same servers either.  (I think its the same locations but the units and everything is whats different.)  Steam login doesn't work either if thats what you're trying
