    One thing is for sure thoes of us out there waiting patiently for the game to release want it to be a good alpha and a outstanding official release. This can be the case I believe do to the fact that the devs listen to the supportive community and what we think, because in all actuality without us there is no game if you think about it, there would be no community, also no motivation to even produce the game. I believe along with many supportive people on this forum that this game has great potential to be one of the best survival games to be released, like I have said in the past they have a leg up do to the fact that they actually listen to the community unlike many major AAA titles out there. I hope the dev team keeps on listening and develops a great game overall. Hey maybe you could even pass up player unknown's Battleground's on release. :3 ( I would like to see that anyone else?)

    Hmm success at the box office can have awesome results, but i am rather skeptical due to negative reviews on every alpha build they make. So this is why we "Backers" better put out some good bugs, reports etc.. before steam release.

    I am all in, getting more devs behind the project, but it can hurt too. It means JB, JayT etc... and the other members of the team might not get any sleep for weeks :)

    This is the most exciting part of the journey we all on ... We can all interact with 'our' development team.
    Unlike other games, they are never far away from us, and always willing to talk.
    @fresh1026 - I think even without us the team would still be writing the game ... they have passion!

    They are compiling it to smaller builds right now, last that was there was 50gb. Best info i can give you, plus anything else outstanding. It is just a matter of time now.

    You know, i wouldn't want everything handed to us prior to alpha. I want to see it first. Spoilers suck for me, especially for a first time entering the game. Some of you already got into the stress tests, i however haven't seen it.

    I like the Ohhh Awe!! factor personally.

    The stress tests were 'exactly that' ... just testing out the game engine and server loading. :)
    Apart from being able to explore a small area of the map near Old Town, there wasn't much that will probably bear any correlation to how we all see the game in it's alpha format.
    As long as we can still chop down trees, I'll be happy!

    You right but in a way I think we will help a bit don't you think? Like I know when I have some support in the back I get more of a boost and it makes me want to get something done even more.

    I actually do that i frequently watch shroud and summit playing it.

    ive just played to much h1z1 to be willing to pay for this early, i want to se a bit of development and balance and ofc optimization before i buy it but if all goes well im prolly buying it next month or so.

    You know what would be cool if there was NPC's to trade with and what they have depends on what other players have traded with them so it will be a in game market. Also I was wondering does anyone have a RP server ready for launch that would awesome because this game seems like the best candidate for it.

    No your not wrong, your correct. It has been mentioned by the Devs that we will not have self ran Dedi servers, but only GSP servers for now. They have a contract and good rates with one company. There will be a number of Offical servers at the start, and Clinton has expressed that.
