average download speed for The Secret World: 20kb/sec. PS: my connection can do 5000kb/sec sustained. 10 gigs to go: 51h.
/dev/codie like i know. i waited a bit for not being in the middle of the big traffic boom. it's fluctuating wildly between 20kb/sec and 2,5mbps sec. /dev/codie it looks like an in-house downloader for the game, as it's in closed beta. i don't think i could torrent it. /dev/codie it's getting a bit better now tho, average is 1,4mbps. 3h left. not sure i'll manage to play tonight lol MatthewAnthony yeah, I wouldn't bother with it. you'll be uninstalling it after less time than it takes to download it. Damo Face Well I should at least be fair and say prepare to be disappointed /dev/codie it's a beta so of course i don't have high expectations anyways. but i want to srsly try it at least before being complainy pants. Veenya Beta is only weekends though. Veenya And its awesome so Damo can sit down. /dev/codie mind you i could be wrong, i just got to it, but that was my understanding Veenya I'm in closed beta. Unless its a super secret one, its weekends. /dev/codie i'm pretty sure i'll like it considering this it's my kind of storytelling /dev/codie Congratulations!
You have been selected to participate in the Closed Beta of Funcom’s upcoming MMO, The Secret World.
Veenya Directly as in from someone in house? I pre-ordered that's how I got mine. I really like it, you have to think and solve puzzles MatthewAnthony Codie: yeah, that's the beta weekends, not a full-time thing. /dev/codie does that mean you can only try it on weekends? Veenya Pvp this weekend, gonna be interesting! MatthewAnthony yes - only during their previously-announced periods, which so far has been weekends /dev/codie oh well, at least i'll have it downloaded /dev/codie i didn't see any mention of that anywhere tho, i can't say it was simple to get there either Nessa says closed beta is available 24/7. weekend betas are on specific weekends. If your invited for closed beta you can play anytime that... Nessa says they are not updating. Veenya I know the open beta and closed have had different servers and different content, but to my understanding both is weekends only. /dev/codie aaaaah see that kinda makes more sense to me /dev/codie well, we'll see as i will still try to run it tonight haha Nessa says i am in closed beta, it is not only weekend. I could be playing now but it is patching a new update. MatthewAnthony Anessa: strange - I was supposedly in closed beta, but it was only available on weekends. Veenya I just turned off my laptop or I'd try and log in. Man that would suck if I missed out on all this playtime! Nessa says did you get your beta key by email from funcom or form a third party site? /dev/codie and i finally got it like about a week ago Veenya I pre-ordered the same day they opened for pre-orders, one of the perks was closed beta. /dev/codie yeah i did hear about that too but i think they may also have selected a bunch of applicants randomly /dev/codie i know several people that registered for it and never got one Nessa says I even got a buddy key to get a friend into closed beta. incidentally i have 2 extra keys for beta weekend #4 if anyone needs it. Nessa says by bf got his about 6 weeks ago, i just got my closed invite last week. Veenya Weird. Maybe I misunderstood it and could've been playing this whole time. I'll flog myself! Damnit! /dev/codie well i'll tell you if i can get in Veenya Veenya I got a buddy key to, but for this weekend. Veenya Well I'm heading to bed, good luck Codie. /dev/codie good luck to you i hope you fall asleep fast and sound Nessa says yeappers, logging in now... they did a pretty big update tonight. kristalawson I'm trying it this weekend once they open it back up! I missed this weekend because it took so long to effing patch. haha Nanners© btw I think the game is doubly painful to graphic and 3D designers because that's clearly where they have been the most sloppy. Angie 17.0 i played last weekend I loved it will play this weekend too
