There have been troubles with emails containing beta keys ending up in Spam / Junk folders, particularly the ones sent to accounts by date of subscription. If you have received no key yet, check out your Spam / Junk folders, and set email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org as trusted senders!
-- Thank You --
here’s a short post for you with the most important information you need to know about the next testing phase of Linkrealms – the Summer (Closed) Beta!
When will the test start exactly?
The closed beta will start on August the 29th, 2015, at 9pm CET (3pm EDT / 4pm BRT).
How long will the test run for?
The test will run for 2 weeks. Additional time can be added if deemed necessary by the development team.
I have a beta key, how do I verify it?
Just visit this page and insert your account credentials and your key to claim it. That will allow you access to the test. If you still don't have a game account, you can create one on this page any time.
I'm an old player, do I need a beta key?
If you have played Linkrealms in the past (before July 2015) you will be able to login when the Summer Beta starts without the need to verify a beta key.
I don't have a key, will I get it?
A few hundreds of keys will be sent out to accounts created after the launch of our Steam Greenlight campaign, starting from the oldest ones, soon before the start of the Summer Beta.
If your account wasn’t eligible to obtain a key, don’t give up hope! Check out this page , help us spread the news about Linkrealms and you will get your key! Moreover, key giveaways will be run on our social pages (Facebook, Twitter and our forums) and gaming news portals. Last but not least, if you are a streamer and/or youtuber who wants to cover Linkrealms, just write an email to email@example.com to ask for a key.
How do I download the client?
If you have access to the game (either through a beta key or as an old player), a link to download the client will be sent to your email a few days before August 29th (probably the 1-2 days before).
Will the game server be wiped / reset after the Summer Closed Beta?
Our plan is not to wipe the server, meaning that when the next Beta Test is launched, you'll be able to start where you left in the end of the Summer Beta. Because of this, you'll be also able to buy credits and claim stakes from the item shops. However, please mind that the game is in a testing stage, and rollbacks or even a full server wipe might be required in case of serious game bugs or drastic gameplay changes.
In the unlikely event a server reset takes place, all the credits and the claim stakes you have bought with real money in the game store (also those already spent!) will be automatically given back to you after the reset.
Is there a NDA? Can I stream/make videos of Linkrealms?
There is no NDA. You are free to stream the game, upload videos, images, blog posts, and show / discuss Linkrealms every way you like!
Can I pay for a key?
We will soon release our Founder Packages, that will allow you to support the development of Linkrealms and will always include a key to play (even the cheapest ones!).
How many servers will be active during the test? With what ruleset?
Our aim for the Summer End Test is to open only one server. The ruleset (open pvp + full loot or pve) will be decided according to the wishes of the community. Have a look here and make your choice!
