Now I know the game isn't out till April 4th and that we aren't supposed to discuss anything in the beta but for now thought that people could discuss their hopes and fears about the game and also thought it would be kind of interesting to see who got into the beta.

 

So first up, I received this e-mail earlier this evening:

The game is currently downloading, 21gig! I've still not really made my mind up about the game but I've been itching to play it so looking forward to finishing work on Friday so I can give it a bash!

let me be the first one to state that the game has a Non Disclosure Agreement and you are not allowed to post any screenshots, video, story components, talen trees, skill sets, armor options, or any other information about the content of the game itself.

 

this is to protect you and our forum.

 

Otherwise, i hope you enjoy it. I participated in several of the other betas for it in the last few months and was very underwhelmed by it.

Nothing wrong with making an [official] topic, I don't think we have one for TES:O yet.

 

Gotta move it to the general gaming area though as it's multiplatform (Y)

I have also received the email tonight, bit bummed that it starts at 11pm GMT though. Especially as I'm away from my computer Saturday and Sunday :(

Yeah I was a bit hesitant to make it in case anyone had skipped over the NDA while redeeming their beta key but let's hope they have more sense than to post about it!

 

I'm guessing that everyone who completed the process for beta participation has got this. Hopefully the servers can handle it, I'd just resigned myself to the fact that I wouldn't be able to play till launch :p

Finally got my email today too, I've been applying for beta access repeatedly since it first went open to apply.

 

Looking forward to the weekend.

Didn't sign up, and didn't get a beta.  Let me know how it is, I heard reports that it is notoriously buggy (or at least previous beta versions were).

nice edit at the top that should do the trick. Just trying to keep people safe. and i am sure we will monitor to clean up any mistakes people make.

 

you can still discuss how fun it is and minor stuff like how not epic a fight you had was or how poorly your character walks as he moves faster than his steps make him appear to move and other hilarious horrible parts of the game :p

Oh jeesus. I'm doubting mine will download by Friday.

Wish BT had stuck to their forecasted dates for fibre in my area. 2013 they said, it's now 2014...

Same here, I'm getting a new computer tomorrow and thought I'd let the game download then copy it over to my new computer tomorrow but I doubt it will be finished in time so just cancelled it. WoW is about 28Gb I think and last time I downloaded it it took a full day so if I start downloading it tomorrow night I should have it in time :D But yeah, fibre needs to hurry up in my area too!

I participated in a test in November. The game is a lot of fun but I recommend playing in first person to make it feel more like and elder scrolls game.
