Hey gang… well I know I said I wasn’t gonna post again until I got back to Hawai’i. However, Widowmaker contacted me, said that the Samurai Legends closed beta was ready to go, soooo… went ahead and set up a beta server yesterday and have made the client install file available for download here via the ‘Files’ section here on the site. No secret, as the files has already been downloaded over a thousand times in a 24 hour period, and we now have something like four hundred new registered users on the msgboard now, hah. Just needed to do the whole official news post thing, so new people coming here will see info that’s important and pertains to the closed beta that they may not see on the msgboard.
First off – it’s early beta folks. There are going to be bugs and issues with the game. All of you that are downloading the game and playing it are, for all intents and purposes, beta testers. In that respect, I’m pretty sure that the team at the SMU Guildhall who made this would like to hear back from ya regarding any kind of issues, bugs, and exploits that might have made their way into the code. Any other constructive feedback, such as the look/feel, how that might be improved, maybe some new content, etc… that would probably be appreciated as well. The best place to do that is at the Samurai Legends official website – http://www.samurailegends.com – they have a forum there specifically for feedback/bug reporting. I’ve already posted a message regarding server-side bugs/improvements, hoping to see all of you playing do the same in regards to gameplay, etc.
Downloading the beta files – you have to be registered on the msgboard forum here to have access to the file. I have the total available bandwidth capped at 2mbit/sec and 100 users total. It was capped at 1mbit/sec until just recently… I know some of ya have been having issues getting the file to pull down from so many people trying to get it at once, so hopefully that increase in bandwidth will help ya out some.
That’s all I got for now folks. Me and JimrockFord are gettin’ ready to leave the CPL for good here. As far as the CS:S tounrey goes, it’s now down to PowersGaming vs. Upper for the overall finals, should be an interesting match up. See ya soon…
