Camelot Unchained delays alpha, promises compensation

    
158

Bad news for those eagerly awaiting Camelot Unchained’s alpha: The team has run into a few snags that have prompted a much-dreaded delay. The upside? There will be compensation for those affected.

Mark Jacobs says that the team worked all day up to the alpha deadline to try to fix a crashing bug and database issue but couldn’t get it sorted out before the test was scheduled to start. “‘Faking it’ or simply extending our deadline by a few days is, quite frankly, unacceptable to us,” he posted to the community. “Thus, we are going to delay alpha while we track down the one major crashing issue and the new database issue.”

Jacobs said that compensation will be incoming per the game’s “alpha guarantee” and that a new alpha date will be announced within a few days. He even indicated that a further bonus might be incoming if the delay lasts for a while: “What I can say is that if we think the delay will be more than a week, well, we have something to show our alpha folks that will take some of the sting out of it.”

We’ve been streaming today. We’ve got Alpha and IT peeps helping us test. Brought it to over 1k bots and players in our small battleground. Things are looking good! Thanks to all our Backers and brand new Backers for their support and for their time to help us test!

I said it on twitter, but I’ll say it again here. Although they missed this deadline (even if it was just a matter of days), my faith in CSE has not wavered. Especially, after watching them passionately work on stream for 14 hours. This team is dedicated and deserves every nice thing said about them.

I watched the CU team bust their ass all day on the Alpha stream most of Saturday.  Truthfully I just wanted them all to go home and rest (of course easy for me to say being in IT!). I was about to go Occupy CityState until Mark let them go.  :P  (I kid I kid!)   I really felt bad for them.  Mark’s crew is so dedicated and even in the face of defeat remained positive.  We still had fun and it was so awesome to see the 700+ during the Stream stay so supportive and positive.

getting closer……starting to get twitchy……then again it may be related to too much pizza, V8, and sniffing of toner cartridges.
It is far above and beyond the norm to literally see the great efforts being put forth by an entire production team during this stage (or lets be honest) -any stage of development.  You guys rock!

BhimaJenkins Mark Jacobs You are welcome. I promised our Backers that I would always be honest and upfront with them. And like the other promises I make, I intend to keep them. Fortunately, this is a very easy one to keep because that is how I am anyway. :)
