I dont know what the difference is between and alpha and a beta.. so I'm calling it a beta! smile.gif

Alpha isn't supposed to be feature complete and is expected to be very buggy/crashy. Beta is supposed to be feature complete and less but still significantly buggy.

Maybe they're calling it an alpha because the term beta has been so abused that gamers have come to expect betas to be relatively bug free early demos to test game balance and server load. So it might be a "true beta", but when it crashes they can just distance themselves and say "it's not even a beta yet, of course it's buggy!"

Best case scenario is that they're calling it an alpha for marketing purposes, making it sound like a super early sneak peek, and alpha just sounds cool. But I dunno, using that terminology 2 months out from an EA release really isn't comforting.

But seriously though, call it whatever the hell you want, just let me play it. (On PC, dammit!)

So I just successfully registered for the Alpha Beta Gamma whatever.... but had the hardest time doing so.

I couldn't even get past the first page using Fireofx:

http://www.titanfall.com/standby-for-titanfall

I then used IE and was able to login to Origin and get to the next page, but when it asked me to "Agree" to the NDA, the box to click yes would not let me click it!

So then I tried using safari on my iPhone and it worked great.... WTF?!?!? Anyone else experience this?

Here at my company they're big on Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), or at least claim to be. The first thing in SDLC is to put together a Requirements Doc. Funny thing is, they usually want you to build the app/process first so they know what to put in the Requirements... :/

FWIW, I registered for the Alpha via Chrome on my Android phone. No problems.

I had that issue to using the default browser on my HTC1. Apparently it really was selecting the box, it just didn't show the checkmark.

You couldn't 'check' the box until you 'read' (scrolled to the bottom) of the T&Cs.

As some of you are asking, we are doing a limited technical test. It is not a beta, and we don't have any beta news at the moment.

I had some issues signing up for the invited beta.

I don't like how it says on one page, you're in, wait for the code.
Then on another page, if you are selected...

Huh?

Agreed.

If people were playing this game 8 months ago E3.. and raving about it. Then there is no way, that almost 8 months later.. and being the only title this studio of 50 people have been working on.. that it is still lacking a bunch of features and full of bugs.



If it was.. why even bother with an "alpha"? The risks that they damage its perception & word-of-mouth by letting the public play it too early.. would far outweigh the rewards.

Which brings us back to the entire reason why they are releasing a public peak. They know the game as-is is stellar and they are confident that the public will like it enough.. that they dont have put a ton of money into marketing/advertising its release.

I sure hope it's solid by now. This is the game that will sell me a Xbox one. So far, no other One game has seemed worth the system cost...

the controller is now up for preorder... man, if I knew this was coming out, I wouldn't have picked up a second controller awhile back (though I did get the controller for $45 out the door)...

I want a new headset instead of the adapter. I want one that takes advantage of the new tech in the xbox one. I personally don't like the look of the controller, and like you I already bought a second one. Maybe I'll grab the halo one when it comes out and retire my day one controller.

Which new tech?

I really dig the look of that controller though, but I'm still waiting on PC drivers. I didn't like the x1 controller the first time I used it, but maybe I'll give it a second chance.

They should have come together on the controller and headset so that they matched, either battle worn or not.

I would think that they would want exposure on YouTube, and I would think that would mainly come from PC players with large subscriber bases, so I would imagine they would open the Alpha up to pc players as well...but idk.

I would personally worry about a 6 v 6 match only match, because lately with BF4 a party cap of only 8 players is not enough to include all the AVS'ers playing, but it probably won't be that big of a deal.

I also hope this game isn't as bad as BF4 has been over the first 2 1/2 months that it has been out. I think it would be cool if this game did very well, and was a boon for MS. But then EA would probably want to dictate all the changes for future versions to accommodate for a larger fan base.

This game could very well be the first real game for next gen consoles.

Just pointing out - that Controller onlysublime posted is for Xbox One. The headset is a PC / 360 Headset, not for Xbox One.

Just got my email code. Going to apply it via the Xbox.com website. In theory, it should be on my console and ready to go when I get home in a few hours, right?

I thought I saw somewhere there is an adapter to hook it up to the XB1.

Yeah, hopefully. I just got mine too. Currently downloading. We are allowed to speak on that right? ;-) Ok almost done, hope it's not a huge headache! I'm almost scared it'll brick the XOne. Since we're in beta with the XOne, Alpha with Titanfall. :-D

In spite of that, I'm really hoping that it's possible to say "xbox, record that" during the trial.
