This isn't the first post I had hoped for.

It is weird to me that it seems there are a lot of people that feel they deserve compensation for not playing the beta because they signed up with an internet connection that would barely allow them to play the game let alone download a large file in under two days. 

It is a Beta, the game files were always going to be 29GBs. Beta testing is not a "demo" but a stress test of the servers, checking for bugs and other little issues to help make launch go more smoothly. 

I suspect that final file of the game won't come out til 25/26 which means these same people will likely not be able to take advantage of the Early access. 

That begs the question.. why did you buy a package? or ask for a beta key? (Please don't answer just think about it quietly) 

I've been looking forward to this.. I have played the Russian game just long enough to make sure it would run nicely without getting a new video card right away (I really do need one) and as a side effect it made me really excited. I also figured out my download issues then, which allowed me to know that it was worth it to preorder and get the head start. 

This isn't like something like SWTOR (the last game I preordered and yes you can be sad for me) where it wasn't out anywhere else and the Betas were the first chance to figure out file size and download speed. All this information has been accessible for a really long time for BDO. 

Ok that is my rant. 


Also... I know I can't do anything with the files until 3am est tomorrow night.. but I WANT THE DOWNLOAD NOW :P ok I'm a little too old to be this excited about a game. :D (yes I know it is coming out in the next 2.5 hours)

I asked for a key because there's no way in hell I'm buying this before trying it. (Don't ask dumb rhetorical questions and act like they're supposed to be deep or something.)

I don't care that it's supposed to be a "stress test", I'm pretty sure they know the VERY LARGE majority who asked for one don't care even the slightest bit about helping with that. Let's be serious here.

29gbs? should take about 10 mins :) unless the download server just doesn't have the capacity to handle my 200mbs download capability :D for those who cant afford it - or arent fortunate to live in an area where its available - get a better job or move :) or both. You notice I'm smiling, so I really do feel for you, but come on - you want sympathy or a purple heart or something? Just man up and deal with it.

Well going with your attitude and that of others here, I'm kinda wishing I did not bother at all. When the majority of your customers don't have great speed (you'd be shocked at how many don't) you would think they'd have given us say, a week? Sounds reasonable no? If you discount peope with slower connections you hammer your playerbase, in my country MOST people have way less than 20mb....downloading at around 3-500 kb/s on average. we have entire counties that struggle to even get basic internet.

It's annoying because the distress people are under could have ben solved with a bit more time and forethought. We are not asking the world, just a bit more start time before beta start. Hardly unreasonable thing to expect. Why exclude people when you can include them too?

lol to your reply. and don't LOL out loud, but do it quietly. And I mean quietly in the deepest, thoughtful, enigmatic and mystical way. (that's in case you weren't able to pick up on my condescension)

There are loads of other ways to test the game. I did the same thing.. So I actually played the Russian version as it is the easiest version to get access to. I played for what was supposed to be and hour or two just to get a feel instead I played for nearly a 12 hour period. 

If you can't handle the basic game files.. they don't owe you anything. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. There is no need to be in the Beta, You don't have to be in a Beta, no one owes you anything. You are not entitled to play the game without buying it, you aren't entitled to any compensation because your Internet isn't enough to download a 29GB file in 5 days (that is 6 GB a day) 

If you can't watch netflix.. you likely can't play this game.

Starting my download now! So excited!

Out of pure curiosity, do we think that there will be a release client that's separate from CBT2? Or do we think that it will just use the same client upon release?

Aaah, fanboys.

Everything's always your own fault when you're facing a problem that doesn't affect them :)

Don't you worry for me, though, my DL is over by tomorrow, I was mostly thinking of a friend of mine.

Also maybe work on your reading comprehension if somehow you understood that I couldn't watch Netflix.

Everyone knows Netflix is extremely bandwidth reliant so lower end Internets can't handle it. Torrenting ftw.

You could have thought this thru and actually downloaded a few seasons of given show, movies or whatever :)
or you know, reallife, books, etc ;p

There are more things to do then netflix, and you can always play some other game, dark souls great, play thru that :)

Well going with your attitude and that of others here, I'm kinda wishing I did not bother at all. When the majority of your customers don't have great speed (you'd be shocked at how many don't) you would think they'd have given us say, a week? Sounds reasonable no?

No.. not for a Beta.. They are still working on the game.. you want to be working on it as long as possible. 2 days is actually really nice. Because that is 2 days they really aren't going to be working major bugs that might come up, or major functions that need to be done. 

If you are unable to download 300-600MB an hour your internet connection likely can't handle the game. Because your upload speed will mean you are going to lag badly. That alone says this isn't the game for you, and you should look at Tera or something a little less resource intensive. 

To have the game downloaded for the weekend 

No one owes you anything though. That isn't an Attitude.. that is a simple fact.. you are not owed anything by the company. If you don't have the ability to take advantage of the head start or to play the beta... then don't play. Also there are very few places in North America or Europe that don't have at least 5mb/s speed internet. At 5mb/s (a speed I had in 1998) would be easily enough to download this to play by Saturday. If you don't have 5mb/s you shouldn't be playing.
