In the latest journal entry (Are you Human? Are you sure?) it said this

I expect the first version of this to be included with Beta 1 of Elemental (i.e. this isn't some "future" thing) which we expect will be out this Spring.

Ok, I was wondering if this mean the beta has been moved up. Originally it was slated for June 09, but that is in the summer and not the spring. I was thinking that they might have moved it up because of the large interest in the game, but his could just be wishful thinking on my part....GOD I hope it has been move up

Most of June is in spring.  Spring ends around June 21st.

I'm pretty sure its because they want to test some even lower level features.  i.e.  something that needs to be working before the june beta.  Don't get too excited, because it probebly means there will be less actual features of the 1stbeta (even though it will be earlier)

And he said "Beta 1" wich isn't "open beta" so he might talk about a pre open beta.

In terms of the beta, all users who pre-order have access to the beta program.

But we are looking to have a private Beta 0 or pre-beta or late alpha or something available before the beta program begins that will largely go to users with high karma / have GalCiv II / Sins  / Demigod so that we can make sure the first beta works.  There's a lot of new tech going into this that we will need some outside testing with.

What about those who are fans, have purchased several games over a period of years, but until now have had little time for forum postings?  I'd be very happy to help beta-test Elemental..

   Our divine mission is to gather karma in preparation for the coming of Elemental!  Love, honor, and grant karma to one another to weld the brotherhood into a force to be reckoned with at the coming.

So speakith,

My fellow frogs,

   This unbeliever knows not of what he speaks.  My time as the sheperd of our flock is only until such time as a new leader rises from our ranks.  Until that time keep the donations of money and karma rolling in and keep my getaway jet on standby.

So if i was already thinking of purchasing Demigod, now seems like a must. Does The Political Machine 2008 count? I made a Drow as candidate once:

Here is a token of my good will as beta tester:

Quoting Eplekongen,

Sad, really sad. Devaluation of Karma in three, two, one...

*sigh* (yes, i know most just joke about it... but most is not all)

When I still played WoW I use to farm Kara, does that count?

I hope that karmatic selection examines what the karma was actually given for instead of numerical bounty. Thats not to say whoever has lots didn't earn it but there might be one or two of the bad karma farmers and lots of it is given for superficial reasons.

Well, I think the important part is having any karma at all.  I seriously doubt the bar would be very high.  Just proof that you are a community participant.  You have plenty of time to make your karma.

I have two questions for Brad

(i) Can I be in BETA 0? Please??? I own all the games you mentioned.

(ii) It is hard for me to pre-order games many months in advance as I prefer to pay by Paypal where possible. Is there anything you can do?

So karma does come back to you after all. Better start doing the 'count to 10 slowly before posting in anger' thing.

Which pretty much means I'm out. Since I only can be bothered to post something when I'm angry.

Well it's a good thing there's no negative karma then .. You can't even take given karma back! So angry away!
