Is the game officially open?

Post by Jarlhen » Tue Apr 07, 2015 2:19 pm

I mean, are we in an alpha or beta or what exactly is the status? Or is there someone in charge of trying to get more players to pop in? I just remember back in old SoI it was a pretty big deal for everyone to go vote on TMC and other sites, as well as some admins/players going on a variety of forums to help spread the word. Is that something that's still going on or are we kind of just testing stuff out?

As a player, the game isn't functionally any different from a fully 'up' MUD. Alphas/betas rarely have been, in my experience. It's open for play, it's got players, it's got Admins. There's been talk about getting voting buttons, but nobody's done anything just yet.

I think we're still considered in Beta until the pbase makes the move to Laketown. When staff have completed all their building projects, the plan is to move on to a 'grand opening'. Nim has asked previously that we hold off on voting until the game out of beta.

Officially we're still in Alpha.
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
