ORION BETA 1.2 - PLAY IT FIRST COMPETITION - FIRST GAMEPLAY SCREENS OF ORION BETA 1.2!

We just held Session #01 of the Play It First competition yesterday. It was a nice turn out and everyone (new and old) thoroughly enjoyed the playtest. We've played all the maps, including the four new ones - and we have the media to prove it!

This was taken yesterday over the course of 2 hour beta test. This was taken from a small 5 v 5 match across all of the maps featured in Orion Beta 1.2. Enjoy the first official gameplay images of Orion Beta 1.2!

Yes, that enemy was just destroyed by the flag carrier!

Is there a reason or something you aren't comprehending about what we are doing? I've already explained it to you twice, 117:


Quoted from where you complained about this elsewhere:

"

It's a private beta to conduct further beta testing on a larger scale. Network stress, etc.

We're continually updating .dlls upon each test.

Beta 1.0 = FilePlanet & IGN xclusive Beta that launched on Dec 13th. It was a week long beta.

Beta 1.1 was the patch that came out after the week-long FilePlanet & IGN Beta. There was over 40 game fixes and tweaks featured in this patch, as well as additional content and maps. This was what everyone who downloaded the Public Beta received.

Beta 1.2 is nearing public release.

Each beta was to have 2 patches each. So- 1.0 (Beta), 1.1 (patch), 1.2 (patch). Next would be Beta 2.0. Then 2.1, 2.2 then 3.0 and so on."


This is to prevent crashes and bugs for a cleaner experience. Settle down already.

There were people playing it. Not every single hour of the day, but it was far from dead.

Yeah. The server crash bug was why it looked like no one was playing. A server would fill up, then crash. So people stopped playing it as a result. Version 1.2 finally fixes the crash though.

I appreciate the amount of work (and play) going in to this mod. I'd much rather wait a bit longer for a carefully refined game than a cruder, hasty release.
