As announced last August, we will be giving access to the game in its Alpha stage to our Kickstarter backers, regardless of the pledge level (for those not in the game yet, access will be given in waves)!
Access to the game at the end of 2018 was one of our promises during the Kickstarter campaign, and we want to keep our promises, even if the game is not yet finished as we hoped it would be. It will also allow us to welcome more players and to give a token of appreciation to the first backers who made this happen.
We'll proceed by giving access to the game through several waves (not all Kickstarter Backers will have the game on Alpha 1, Day 1). Sponsor backers who already pledged will automatically get access on November, 29th, as it has always been stated on our Crowdfunding portal.
Also, we have not forgotten post-Kickstarter Founder Backers who joined later and, as a thank you, we have also advanced their access to the game at an earlier stage.
To make sure to ramp-up Server stress as properly as possible, first wave of backers (beside Sponsor) will be open for December's 6th session. If everything goes well, we'll open a new wave every week but we can't promise at 100% that everybody will get access before the end of 2018.
Players will be warned by email 24 to 48 hours prior to a test session so keep your eyes open! We'll proceed by the oldest date of pledge and backers status first (oldest Silver, then oldest Bronze, then oldest Iron).
We hope you'll understand that we need to manage things at best to provide a good experience to everybody. The chart below gives you a clear view of what is planned so far:
