Release Date for Alpha

So I thought originally Alpha would be in 18 months. Now I'm hearing 12 months. Is there a estimated month or day for it yet that you guys have seen?

Yeah that's where I saw 12 months but didn't know if there was a more specific date yet on the forums from a device or anything that I may have missed?

Think that is the most specific release date.

The question that Still floats around is when does the countdown for the 12 month alpha start? At the end of the Funding Campaign, or 10/10/10?

I think its more like a "When its done™" than a specific date. Programming things a very complicated and reaching a exact date in twelve months would need a hell of a lot management. I guess Chris is saving all the struggle and devs away his things until they are done the way he wants.

One way or the other, I am looking forward to the Alpha, I am looking more forward to the Whole thing, but thats longer down the road!

The "When it's done" is probably right, I just hope they won't do it in the Blizzard style ^^

It should be done properly, I'd rather wait an extra month for a few less game breaking bugs. I'm not sure how many of the people that pledged will understand that the alpha will not be the finished game. So the alpha should actually be a developed beta instead. But time will tell.

Alpha is the MultiPlayer Dogfight Arena and is used for the most important part of the game: Instancing & ShipBalance
