Also, I doubt there is anything in the NDA banning you from lying to deny being selected
The NDA probably doesn't prevent you from lying, no... but honesty and honor does

As Brad would say, Stardock betas are explicitly designed NOT to be fun in order to ensure the final release IS fun for the beta testers. The alpha will be more like torture.
As a fanatical Master of Magic fan I would like to lodge a protest against the cloth map alpha, based on the screenshots we've already seen. Clearly you are focussing far too much on graphics. Dammit, if 640x480 was good enough then it's good enough now! Also, I am demanding you insert more bugs, so the release version can match that of MoM.
