    Hey this is kinda a question for the VR crew so not sure where to put this, but wondering on other peoples thoughts on this . I am on the fence about signing up for the $100 a month to have access to the alpha client. Was just wondering since i read somewhere that as the game gets closer to release some of the pledge options may be phased out, could we get a heads up as to when that may happen so that those of us on the fence about wanting to join alpha can have one last kick at the can?

    Pre-Alpha, for $100US/Month (with a 2 year signup. jk.)

    Sure, makes sense to time that $100/mon. purchase right at pre-alpha start. But pre-alpha is a secret and you only know about it if you paid for it. :)

    We won't be able to give any notice and we will cut the pledges to pre-alpha off well before it starts without warning, otherwise, people would just sign up for one monthly payment to get into pre-alpha then bail on us.

    Another reason we won't announce changes or the discontinuation of pledges is because we use them to manage testing numbers and if we announce one is changing or ending, people will rush to buy it and blow our numbers out, so my advice is to purchase the right pledge for you now if you can afford it as there are no guarentees how long they will be around for.

    I have gone ahead and moved this to General Support as it is related to pledges/testing.

    would love to know the definition of well before.....seems like pre-alpha is still far away with that statement.

    As a lurker for the past year, I've been waiting for some sort of pre-alpha notifcation before I pledged. Now that the pre-alpha pot must be boiling, I don't want to miss out on what's about to be served up. Congratulations on raising my anxienty through the roof, enough to pry an Originator's Pledge out of me.

    I'm assuming they will pull pre-alpha pledge options at least 4 weeks before pre-alpha testing.

    Well before = enough time for us to pull the plug, manage numbers and get what we need for testing done. It would be unwise to assume anything ;)

    Hi Ajin :)

    Nothing to download just yet my friend, once we get to that point we will notify everyone who is eligible for access, so double check your email is correct and that emails from VR do not go into your spam or junk folder!

    We will be notified when the time comes,  currently no e-mails have been put out to anyone yet other than the monthly newsletters,  and the first testers would be  pre-alpha, testing for alpha and beta come later.

    Don't worry about it. As long as the e-mail you have listed here is the correct one, you're all set: https://www.pantheonmmo.com/content/members/settings/general

    They'll make it exceedingly clear when the time comes. You won't miss it.

    Just a note for anyone using Yahoo.com e-mail addresses. They flag e-mails from VR as spam, so check your spam folders! This included the verification e-mail and Id imagine anything else yahoo considers automated.
