Announcing the Kingdom Reborn Focus Group

Jeremy Dalberg

01 Oct 2007 15:33:04 EST

The Kingdom Reborn client will be getting lots of love over the next couple of months, and we want to get as much focused, constructive player input as possible. To that end, we will be creating a KR Focus Group on the EA Mythic forums, and we are looking to solicit applications!


We are looking for people who, at this time, either have KR installed or are able to install it, and can get it to run on their machines. (I.E., can log in to a character and move around - people with performance issues are welcome, as that's one of the things we're working on, but we really need people who can log in to test stuff.)


We are also looking for people who are WILLING to play and test KR - if it's just not your thing right now, that's fine - everyone is more than welcome to simply sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor!


To apply, send an email to jdalberg AT ea DOT com with the following:


Subject Line: KR Focus Group
Real Name:
Account Name(s)
System Spec
Handle (if you post on public forums - Stratics, etc - let me know who you are!)
Have you tried KR yet? What was your experience?
What is your primary gameplay style (crafter, tamer, melee fighter, PvP, etc)


If you are selected, you will receive an email that contains the information you need to get on the internal forums. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis, and we will be choosing applicants who have a wide range of system specs, playstyles, and experiences.

Goodluck to the people who send in their applications. And hopefully, it will be a good group of people who are really serious with helping KR.

I must say this is good news...
If they actually work on the issues the tes group bring up.

The part about performance issues makes me so happy

Nice to see them focusing on the obvious issues with UOKR....but, shouldn't this have happened BEFORE open beta, or even gold release?
heh

Wow - wish I'd have caught this one sooner!

I sent an email, just in case they're taking late applicants :) Would love to contribute.

I doubt there is a focus group now, but hey, still worth sending in your feedback.

Im also addicted to KR and almost always play the KR client except when Im decorating my house (cant stand to place things in KR).

After I finish my exams I'll give it shot and try to get in the focus group. Try to help them make the client better :)

Let's see if I can describe the situation without breaking the NDA.

It's a forum, kind of like this one. Like any forum, activity ebbs and flows. Right now it is between focus groups. Not much interaction with the devs right now, but whatever the players post -does- get read.

Focus groups will be active again. They may or may not be taking applicants right at the moment (I really don't know)... but it does not hurt at all to ask to be a part. Just one suggestion, put UO Beta Focus Group App in the subject line of the email... so Jeremy can sort the email properly.

Hope that helps.

You said "not much interaction with devs".

do you mean with that "no interaction at all" or just "a bit"
