Parties for CBT?

Post by Sevic » August 12th, 2014, 7:23 am

Hi again. I'd like to have a party somewhat figured out for whenever CBT comes out. Who's interested? I'll most likely be playing Linker for CBT. :slur:

Assuming most of us get access to the CBT, I think there will be plenty of parties to choose from. People have already been talking about forming guilds as well.

If I'll get into CBT I'm probably just going to test multiple classes and figure out the mechanics, no serious grindan for me at that point.

I'm sure there will be plenty of parties to choose from as well, but I'm trying to have an idea of some people I may personally party with specifically in CB. It's fun to make friends early in a game and learn it together. :ok: I'm sure I'll end up testing multiple classes as well and learning the mechanics. :meh:

That's fine, because I'm nocturnal and I basically keep the same hours as you. :heh: I woke up at 6pm yesterday and I'm still up from then. :gg:

Sounds like a good idea! Of course, I'll test a bunch of classes and I'm not sure if CBT will give us time for "serious grind"; in any case, I'd like a party, especially because I find much more fun to play MMOs in party than playing solo. Although it's sort of a "let down", I think no one is sure whether CBT will be available for the international community (i.e. outside Korea).

I'm interested, so I'm in.

I am hoping there will be more Class introductions before CBT starts because I have not found a class I am strongly attracted to (for testing, and otherwise).

I'm on GMT+8, but count me in, maybe our playtimes will collide. I'll be making a sword-wielding Elementalist. :ok:

Er, call me crazy, but isn't CBT reserved for Korean residents only?

as far as i'm aware, only fgt was reserved for korean residents. cbt, i believe, will be international, but the server will be hosted in korea. think they said this somewhere. i think they'll have it set up like this to see how the server operates when people from around the world connect to the korean server.

edit; i found it.

Q) Okay so then, are you planning to have one server where all the users from all around the world connect at the same time? Will the international participants also be able to join CBT?
A) Right now, since we are preparing for CBT phase of the game, the servers for the test will be located in Korea initially. Therefore, we are going to test how stably the people who live far away from Korea play the game and based on the results we will gather from this test, we will decide whether we will add more physical servers to the other regions besides Korea.
again, this is speculation and i don't know how definitive this post is. but i interpreted it as them allowing people outside of korea to play on their servers for cbt.

Yeah, one of the main purposes of CBT is to figure out where they want the game to be published. I really hope that we won't lag in the Korean server so that it can double as the international server, but I guess that's not going to happen until the whole world gets free fiber. :sob:

Yeah, that would suck if they only had an international server based in Korea. I am hoping that they have a few eastern servers in addition to an international server. For example, in Wakfu, I play the international server (not sure where it is based) as well as the North American server. More options would be perfect, but I suppose that will depend on the size of ToS's followings from different regions of the world.

Count on me, by the way today the connection are much better so I HOPE a server just in korea is a "fine" experience also from us really far.

I just added a custom profile field "timezone" which should make this easier. This will be shown next to each users posts.

Yep,that's quite true what M4zinkaiser said. With South Korean as the leading country in term of internet speed and reliability, I'm pretty sure we are ok. The problem now is to choose the best ISP in your own country. Usually the bottleneck are those guys. As for me, I'm ok with what I have at the moment...I usually play Hawken on Asia servers with no lag whatsoever.

And yeah, South East Asia players should have a thread for regional parties. Might as well think of a cool name for it. :ok:

:ok: That would be nice if prior to the CBT, every interested players might be able to select the same server (if there are several) and so they can meet up in-game.

I would love to get into the CBT too! :ag: If I dont have work at that time......
