Please Let Me Know When It's Up

Recommended Posts

Sorry to make a notification show up, but I want to confirm that my understanding is correct that a solid date for the beta start hasn't been set yet. Last Tuesday we got "next week" and it's already Wednesday. In theory it could be today, but we also could be waiting for a few more days, right?

But I mean, I feel you completely. I'm chomping at the bit for some sweet, sweet, L5R RPG stuff myself.

I was on pins and needles all day yesterday hoping for news, but no luck. Right now, I'm guessing that release will probably be Friday because it would be kind of weird to have the beta drop on LCG first sale day. I guess? Maybe there's some synergy there I'm not aware of.

I don't mean to be too negative here, but I wish companies would work in a way to make their customers more happy. If you say "next week", do it on Monday or 
Tuesday! Everyone will be super happy. If you wait until the end of the week, people are going to be annoyed. It's just little things, ya know?

But I'm excited regardless, hoping that it drops sooner rather than later!

It isn't what day that bugs me, it is not knowing.  I know they planned the release, if it is Friday just say so.  You can always release early and surprise people.


But for a play test, early is better.  We can read up before the weekend.

I was thinking about that too.  Which is worse though.  Saying "It will drop Tuesday" and then it not dropping Tuesday, due to some unforeseen but perfectly reasonable event.  Or Just saying "Next Week"?

Are-are we really complaining that the mostly developed, totally free, and almost certainly awesome product being graciously given to us by FFG isn't on a more publicly tight schedule? A week window for release is actually really good. (I'm looking at you, Q4 Genesys.) I think this is a great move by FFG to help a lot of fans get excited about the game and give them a chance to have a bit of input on the product. If we start complaining about the more specific (and possibly uncontrollable) details, doesn't that make us look a little ungrateful?

I'm posting from my phone so I'm probably more curt than I intend.  I do apologise for that.

But no, criticism of policy is not necessary ungrateful.  As you mention with Genesys, FFG has a frustratingly vague release schedule.

I don't care what date they release it, I just have a personal hangup with uncertainty.

I think that's the problem most of us have, Modron. People like me are sitting here day after day just waiting, it's awful but I can't stop because I'm too excited. A buddy was so confident that it would come out today that I had trouble sleeping. Mayhaps that's not a good thing though...

I'm in Puerto Rico and since Monday I have been driving to areas with internet signal just to download this (I have a Kindle fully charged waiting for the file).

It is more problem than it should be considering my current situation. But what can I say? I played 1st edition since day 1 and have all the stuff from that edition (sans the Travelloges and Otosan Uchi)

Tomorrow is when the LCG officially hits shelves, right? Seems like that might be when it will drop.

I'm desperately hoping you're right, though I doubt my Hero Quest will be super pleased with me reading L5R during the game hahaha

Hope you and family is ok. I’m from Puerto Rico too, however I moved out more than a decade ago. My family didn’t suffer major damage, though, thank God.
