The following thread is aimed to answer all questions about getting into the Beta in one thread, something which the one stop shop does not do.

As a small number of forum members have got confused, this thread address's issues on getting into the beta and issues surrounding that.

If you are already part of the beta:


If you are having beta issues - please use our beta forums :

http://beta.forums.defiance.com/forum.php



How do I sign up to the Beta?

The majority of people that see this thread will have already signed up to the beta, however if you have not, here's how.

Head to this link: https://defiance.trionworlds.com
If you don't have an account click register, if you do, login.

Once this is done choose which platform you wish to Beta Test on:

http://i48.tinypic.com/zxtcvd.png

Then hit Confirm




I have a Beta Key

- To redeem your key, create and account or login at https://defiance.trionworlds.com
- Look for the Apply Code tab
- Enter your code and hit Apply
- You will then be informed through Email when you are able to enter Beta

If you don't have a key but want one, Defiance's Twitter Page (https://twitter.com/DefianceGame) often gives some out.



Can I record or stream during the Beta?

At current the Beta is under NDA, until this is lifted you can learn more about it here (https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CD4QFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FNon-disclosure_agreement&ei=uGH5UL6zI8rB0gXrr4DADA&usg=AFQjCNFW6_bWHepRHJ6Js_tvXY7Yt2kZog&sig2=fikgM8vqAp1MQY6VwFLLGw&bvm=bv.41248874,d.d2k).

In short, no you can' stream or record until the NDA is lifted, unless you have permission. Be sure to keep an eye out for it lifting though.

The NDA also states that you can't discuss the Beta in public, e.g podcasts and such.





The following is for the Beta between 18th and the 20th

When is the Beta Exactly?

The beta is an exclusive closed beta event starting at 8 AM PST on Friday, Jan. 18 and running through 9 PM PST on Sunday, Jan. 20.

Use this Timezone coverter to figure out when it begins: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html



How do I get into this Beta?

Check your email, and it's spam folder, or do a search if your email provider has one for "Defiance"

If you have the email you are in the Beta.


The email then tells you to do the following

1. Log in to your Trion Account at https://defiance.trionworlds.com

2. Click MANAGE GAMES > DEFIANCE BETA

3. Agree to the Terms of Use, License and Non-Disclosure Agreement* ("the Agreement")

Once this is done you can download the client.

So, getting a beta key does not guarantee entry into the beta?

I received a key from Curse yesterday and entered it last night but I have not gotten an e-mail of any sort and there are no Terms of Use, License and Non-Disclosure Agreement on my Trion Account page under Manage Games -> Defiance.

From everything I have read, Yes, getting a code doesnt mean you are in. I have entered 2 different codes and still no email. So alas you get to join me and many others staring at their email folders waiting for the magic ticket to arrive.

Normally having a Key means you are in Beta. So I am not sure whats going on but I am right there with ya. Curse gave me a Beta Key and I applied it and can't download the Client or access the Beta Forums. Go figure! :(

Hey castiel0

The word will now be spreading that those who have keys and did not get in the Beta can get them through going to this email.

The email box will most likely be flooded so it may take some time.

Also the servers seem unstable right now so don't feel like your missing anything right now.

Saye
01-18-2013, 10:27 AM
Woo hoo! Got mine 20 minutes after I sent the email. Just wait it out. Like Dryblood said, I'm reading that there's a lot of disconnect and server issues atm. So having to wait it out will probably save you some aggravation. I understand it's a beta, but come on! Wasn't the Stress Test meant to test how much the servers could handle? :P

My guess is they probably did not foresee this amount of players, there must have been 200+ running about at the point where you finish the tutorial mission.

I think that later on today the servers will iron out and will be fixed, so just sit tight :D.

Okay davc, try one more complete re-installation, remove any Defiance files from your PC.

While you do that I am going to scan around for a solution.

Good luck.

Indeed.....or just walk away for a few hours and come back.....with all the keys they handed out there will be issues for sure.

Remember to have a program that will clear your registry as well of any lingering bits that may have stuck in there. That sometimes helps in problems like this.

I also emailed Trion and hope to hear back today so I can get to testing. (^_^)

Update: Trion replied REALLY fast via email and everything is patching. Now if Trion can just figure out a way for me to get off work early....

davc, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

Beta events (And Stress Tests) are at limited times.

If you get a beta invite e-mail make sure to log in and accept the EULA/NDA on your Trion Account. defiance.trionworlds.com

I'd prefer these discussions go to the beta forums unless people are having issues getting there.
