Been in que for 8 minutes now... yesterday it was maybe 20 seconds, tops.


Just wondering if something broke.

Round 2! Begin!

Yea... this is more what I was asking... obviously anything bought with IRL money would be perm.. but what about the grindy parts?

@DN_cult Will you guys try your best to reward players with the currency/progression they already earned such as a typical HiRez beta or will earned currency/progression be wiped with little regard?


Trying to get a solid answer before considering putting in time then have progression wiped and being burned out.


(Made this post because I feel like your previous one was towards premium purchases.)


Ah, ty for that.. that at least works with the friends list stuff... soo Ok.. if they want less advertising I hope they are right about it.!

That being said, you can also use steam to launch non-steam games..

Not sure i get this.. ALOT of games use their own launcher THROUGH steam.. eg; the steam game list just launches the launcher.. and then you click play on said launcher.. but things like the steam social friends list/overlay and such work with the game..


Why would you not do this?




  • its FREE word of mouth advertising.. any time someone starts a game on steam, their ENTIRE friends list gets a 'such and such is now playing GAME' mini toast/popup on the lower right.. and you can rightclick that person in the friends list to go and VIEW that games store page..




  • People have quite a bit of social stuff via Steam friends... you're asking them to completely cut off from that network while playing dreadnought.




edit; And to get around the 30% of sales through steam.. you simply sell stuff yourself, through the game (instead of through steam bundles).. Check out how planetside 2 is doing it through steam.. I assure you, they aren't paying 30% on their sales ingame

Adding here:


Anything exclusive to the Founder's Packs that cannot be purchased later on besides the Closed Beta access?





Nyanko#3267 posted (#post-24036)


Will the game be available of steam? And if so, will the packs be also available there?



My last information about steam is from a possible two year old stream where they mentioned that it is not planned for launch, but could be added later on.



As of right now, we have zero plans for Steam as we're using our own launcher just for Dreadnought. smile




Note that the END time for pre-CBT is not the END of the CBT.. its just the end of the pre time.. CBT will continue on from that for an undetermined length of time.

Specific, listed streamers are allowed to break NDA starting tomorrow (wednesday) at the start of CBT.

Soo.. on stream they said there might be progression wipes, due to alpha stuffs... but it seemed really up in the air or they weren't really sure...


They also mentioned that things you pay money for will stay!


My question is kinda a.. 'should I bother buying elite status PRE release (the founders pack 30 days elite status doesnt kick in till whenever that is), in order to level up faster.... or will that be a waste?'


Because.. arguably, I paid money for an xp boost so would I keep the xp I 'paid for' in essence?


Anyways! Any clarification on that would be appreciated.
