What does it mean?
You should now see the access status on the site's main page. When we want to let more people in, we'll increase server account limit. If total number of registered accounts is less than the limit, new accounts will get access to alpha immediately. When this happens, access indicator should look something like this:
What about invitation codes?
Invitation codes are less important, but they still exist. You can use invitation code sent out earlier to bypass the wait list and gain access to the game. Codes which were sent out earlier are still valid. We plan so send invitation codes to members of the press when we're ready to let everyone know the game exists. If you have the code and the game is in "Open alpha" state, you can just ignore the code and just register your account. However, if the game is in "Wait list" mode, then you can register the account, and then use "Redeem Code" option in account preferences to get into the game.
We hope that this change will let us to spread the word about the game more quickly without additional fricture of invitation codes. Feel free to share the news and invite more people in! We would love to hear your feedback! Twit us @MenchieItUp or like us on Facebook.
