Welcome To The Beta!

16 May 2013

Important Beta Weekend Information.

Tomorrow is a big day, and everyone here at Nival is excited to be able to share the Prime World experience with our new batch of Beta Testers. We look forward to jumping into battles with you, seeing the live streams, and interacting with our new community members. As the Beta event begins we ask for everyone to be patient with other players as everyone is just starting to learn the basics of the game. Additionally we ask for your cooperation in understanding that if any technical difficulties occur during the Beta event that we are working diligently to resolve them as fast as possible. After all, Beta event are meant for testing.

Users who are using non-english language letters in game will be removed from the Beta. While we are excited to have players from all over the world playing Prime World, this is an English Beta.

For this Beta event, we will be featuring the "Borderlands" map. Borderlands is our most well known gameplay mode and the most simple to learn. In the future, Beta events will change so that we are able to test different aspects of the gameplay one at a time. This means that during the next Beta event and subsequent Beta events we will be changing what game modes and features players have access to. But that's just the beginning. Between Beta events we will be hosting several contests for our community, and we will be looking for your feedback as to what kind of contests you would like to have.
As our community begins to grow and players are becoming more knowledgeable about the game and it's structure we look forward to hearing everyone's feedback through our Community Forums.
Please feel free to report bugs, give feedback, discuss strategy, and report any issues or difficulties you may have had during this Beta event. When reporting bugs, please read the provided sticky thread about bug submission formatting.
If you registered for the beta through an email address, we will begin sending those out shortly. If you registered through Facebook, please check your OTHER messages folder. Due to some recent changes in the way Facebook messaging works, our message may get caught in the spam filtering.
