When's the BETA out speculation thread

Recommended Posts

It's actually kind of obvious. When this thread has 2020 replies, the Beta will hit.

We are at 1700 now.

We should start an strike when the beta comes out, nobody downloads it until SI employees fill 38 pages in a thread with memes begging us to play it 😂

Nice one. I wonder who actually has the discipline and inner strength to wait so long :)

In all seriousness SI can't have it both ways - tweeting about today being a good day to keep notifications on and trying to hype up a game - If you have a known history of releasing the Beta early then it's obvious people will get hyped up and ask - it's a monster of their own creation.

that's enough responsible adulting for the day ...

In hindsight, that was clearly about the interactive trailer..............!

So who changed the criteria? No wonder Miles is confused about when to release it ...

Party Pooper

Also I'm working 12 hour days on Saturday and Sunday. So if it comes out on Friday night I'll be extremely sleep deprived on Saturday and or calling in sick haha. 

 

I've got Tuesday and Wednesday off work. I've penciled in at least 15-20 hours of Beta for then haha. 

 

So it would be just like Miles to release it early the one time I'm fine with it being just on time.

Additionally, those who pre-purchase through a SEGA approved digital retailer will be able to get their managerial careers underway early through a fully-playable Beta version, which will be available roughly two weeks prior to the official street date (single player careers started in the Beta can be carried across to the full game). 

 

that "roughly" is why this thread exists. :brock:

It's not due out then, they have always said 'around' 2 weeks, so around 2 weeks could be anywhere from 3 weeks out to bang on 2 weeks, last year and the year before it was 17 or 18 days before release date. SI did say to turn on notifications so why do that, just for the release of a trailer?

Anyway, I'm not even in this for the beta any more, this thread has taken over my life.

Yes... we all know about the "two weeks" stuff. But everyone is hopeful of an earlier release to please the needy :)

Highlighted the pertinent words.

The release date for the beta is not an absolute at this point.

Plus, we're just using this as an excuse for silliness.  This thread is basically no longer about the beta, but to share gifs, 1990's wrestling stories, your preferred Greggs pastry and all sorts of other things besides.

Tuesday the 5th is bang on 2 weeks before, today the 31st of October is still AROUND 2 WEEKS BEFORE.

If it's out before Tuesday, happy days, but we're responsible gif warring Chuck Norris joking adults here stop being so pedantic

    located or situated on every side.
     
     
    So basically the beta will be situated on every side of November the 5th? Great, we're already of the 'not yet November 5th' side, so where is my beta?

Knightmare was quality, I even had a novella/that had a dice roll rpg section in it. Kinda like Ste Jackson and Ian Livingstone books.

The actual calculations, so we stay on topic:

image.thumb.png.4ee332118eda7d5c23d484cf62c3abee.png

So, what do we know:

1. Release Date: 19th November 2019

2. Beta: "roughly" 2 weeks before

3. Is it 2 weeks before 19th November = 5th November?

4. If no, then keep posting here and hope, it "could" be out but maybe not

5. If yes, then we are allowed to expect it to be out, and can ask about it = no more muting :)

 

In other words any day before November 5th is fair game and roughly 2 weeks before. As of November 5th we should expect it to be out :)

We're all responsible adults (apart from that denim guy) agree with you any day from Tuesday just gone (3 weeks to release) up until this Tuesday is roughly 2 weeks before release, so it's fair game for speculation, no one is getting hurt (apart from the denim guys feelings probably) and we're all having an absolutely belter time in this thread.

No reason to think why it can't be today since it's quite close to the roughly 2 weeks scenario and an extra weekend means a lot for the beta testing purpose. 

Unless the alpha version is in a state that its too buggy for beta release which means you wouldn't want the beta anyway.
