Hey guys, kinda new to all this, if i was to buy the prepare for escape edition, are there still slots to get into the alpha or was it just 75% of people getting in at the start of the alpha

Many thanks

Well from what I understand, each major update (generally,) they add a new "wave" of testers. I'm not sure how it's selected, but more $$$ = better chance.

Alternatively, you could buy Edge of Darkness edition, and get access as soon as your payment is received. (or, like my buddy, get the $75 package, and upgrade if you don't get in on the next wave.)

It does not work that way. You get instance chance of being selected in. It's not a wave system. We only added more for starting of extended alpha.

No, you still get a chance to be selected in and if you are not selected, you would have to wait for beta.

There is still a chance of 75% to be selected in meaning 25% chance not to be selected in. Read the full details on the link below:

so you can upgrade packages?

Yes. You can try one package and go to the next one giving you a whole new chance depending on the package. BUT you do pay a bit more while doing so because even though you pay the difference between them, there is a slight addition of VAT and payment methods fee on each upgrade since its a different pack, minus the amount you had already.

i dont get it. how the upgrade works. i bought last month left behind and today upgrade to prepare for escape. and in game i still have the same stuff and nothing has changed. Greatly increased size of stash is still (10x30) not (10x40).

If I were to buy the Prepare for Escape edition with a 50% chance of getting into the alpha, and I did not get in, if I upgrade to the 75% chance package would i be able to get another chance?

s there a way to tell if we even had a chance at getting selected for alpha, from what I can tell it's a random chance from 50 - 75 % based on the packages I bought, that can take 12-24hrs to apply to my account.

But how do I even know they are accepting people at the moment, I bought the Standard on Sat for about 60 Cdn then upgraded for another 40ish on Monday night giving me a 50% chance and now upgraded again for another 30ish Thursday night for another 75% chance. But again for all I know they could just not be accepting new accounts?

Either way I'm fine, though to be honest I would rather the early Aplha then the added items and storage, something's are just better to earn in game as you play but at the very least I would like to know I pulled the short straw and just have poo luck, something showing the RNG they use would be comforting. Keep up the good work! Game looks great can't wait to get my STALKER on.

They are accepting all the way until alpha ends check your email you should get one saying you got in if you did check spam or go to your profile on main page to see if you can download client
