I got a key to apply...but...my god...they ask for a lot of info. They did say tho they expect the majority of those who apply to be invited.

@paterah
After filling in the intrusive amount of info they wanted one time, it then did some kind of re-load thing and wanted it all again... Nah sorry, one time was ridiculous enough, I almost expected them to want social security number, phone number, longitude/latitude of birth along with particulars of the planetary-alignments at moment of birth. etc...

While I was perplexed by some of the info they wanted, this is not even coming close to the ridiculous question that many other games ask, for example address, zip code. Compared to those the questions asked were abstract enough - unlike some publishers which would be able to send you a real life snailmail with the info they get, GF doesn't even ask for your entire phone number.

@kasapina I think the zip code question relates to the average ping question, they want to have as much information regarding network speed and latency to the various regions they're hoping to cover as possible.

It certainly was a bit of an odd system. Here is a key to sign up for beta good luck. Didn't I already sign up?

As a reminder, fill out everything honestly and don't try to fudge up the latency question or anything else, as they are looking to test a variety of hardware configurations and client locations. "Cheating" may actually decrease your chances of getting in.


See you folks in San Paro!

People are complaining about this different way of signing up for a beta, yet I think we will find it filters out the trash somewhat. I think it only happened this way because they received ~150,000 applications and only set up for ~10,000

For all its flaws, there were times playing APB that I had more fun than I ever had playing any other video game EVER! Then you would get beat down by an obvious aimbotter and that fun would turn to ash in your mouth.

I hope this version of APB will fix those flaws and we can finally have the game it should have been.

@Quarlo Me and a clannie once coordinated sniper shots on two obvious botters. Watching them freak out over losing was awesome.

Unfortunately the APB sign up page doesn't work. It won't either accept your DxDiag information or it will state your beta key has been registered. Tried IE8, Firefox, and Google Chrome and get the same error every time.

It took all of 5 minutes to fill out their "application." I'm not really sure what people are complaining about. Most guild applications take longer.
