View Full Version : World Online Closed Beta Signups.

EA is inviting members of the NFS Communities to participate in the World Online Closed Beta testing.

If you're interested, either PM myself or Mike with a subject title "Open Beta Registration" and you will require giving us the email address you used to signup with EA.

I would rather have PM's versus just posting them into the threads, as spambots like email addresses.
After the PMs are collected, I will send a list daily of the PMs I receive, you should eventually get a confirmation from EA themselves.

We hope to see quite some participation from this site.

PM me even if you have registered on the World Online site.
It would greatly increase your chances of being chosen.


*additionally*
I have been informed that you must also signup for the Beta on the NFS World Site, those of you who have already done so are ahead of the game.
Click The link here http://www.needforspeed.com/web/world

The reason for the signup is to give your systems profile, which helps to find a happy medium for all gamers alike. (Min specs, Recommended, etc)

We still need more emails.

IDK if this is the right section but. Im in Disagree with this:
The best car customization engine ever seen in a driving game. If you can dream it, you can create it in World.
Actually the best car cuztomization engine is Street Legal Racing. even if it isnt the realest driving Game, its the one with the best tuning.
You can tune everything, including:
Engine RPM, amount of nitrous injected, Gear relations and much more, and u can even disarm the engine part by part... the same with the suspension..
But im still waiting..
Good Luck to the ones who will have the beta...

I felt relieved after i read this, until now i thought that if i didn't get one NOW then i won't get it at all.
also a weird bug: im logged in on my account, and i see the "Apply for Beta" button. i log out and log in again because on EA forums people were writing it helps, i click the button and it shows the second step of the applying for beta process basically allowing me to apply again. I have not tried doing it as i dont want to cheat to get in but its just weird.

So, according to what happened so far those who didnt get their email today can still get it before 5th March?

I am really bummed out by this. I've been a loyal NFS fan for over twelve or thirteen years now. I've always given EA the benefit of the doubt when people complained about games like Carbon, ProStreet and Undercover.

Maybe EA want the players who complain more because they point out every flaw in the game, whereas the "loyal" players overlook things... or maybe EA just doesnt like you. Im just saying, its a possibility.

Anyways, I almost decided to sign up but I probably wouldnt play it anyway. Unless of course EA is desperate enough that they resort to paying people to sign up, then heck yeah Im in.

How could they know if I complain or not? I could be complaining all over the internet except here. They should pick on system specifications and information gathered about a person through their EA account and the registration process. I am a loyal fan, but I'm also realistic when looking at a game and I can very well point out strong assets and flaws in a game.

If randomness is the only variable involved here, I just hope I'll get picked for one of the next waves of beta testing. If not, I'd be a bit disappointed. Ahwell, the game is coming out this year anyway.

Question
How Do I report Bugs?

Answer
To report a bug, you must first have access to the Need for Speed World beta program. After logging in with your account info, please click the Report a Bug button, located beneath the Play Now button on the NFSW home page.

You may also click the Report a Bug link under Contact Us from the support page.

Before reporting a bug, please take a few moments to search our forums and knowledge base to see if your issue has already been reported. If your search is unsuccessful, please follow the posting guidelines:

1. Select the category that best defines your bug.
2. Please only describe the steps taken to reproduce your problem. Do not include any opinions.
3. If you can, please include a screenshot of the issue.


@Ruubw, Just for Your knowledge, reporting a bug which says that you were not chosen for beta is a good way to continue that trend.


Question
Why haven't I been Accepted into the Need for Speed World Beta Program?

Answer
The first few beta test sessions of Need for Speed World will be extremely limited.

If you do not receive an acceptance e-mail for a specific test session, don't fret! You may still be selected for one of the additional sessions in the future as we will be approving more applicants to participate throughout the Beta period.

We appreciate your patience!

Yes, thats what we want.

I believe the profiles are saved online which is why you login first before the game loads, and gives you the profile choices afterward.

I'm curious once this round of testing is over does that mean the people from the first don't get to test anymore betas and have to wait until the final version of the game comes out or do they get to download the updates for the next beta?
Doubtful, those who participated in Round 1 will continue, while those who start Round 2 join those of Round 1, Round 1 players will require updating throughout, Round 2, will be downloading larger installation packs. and so forth.

That is very good news :D

And yes, your profiles are stored online. You can however go to to the EA website, log in and delete profiles manually.

DO they email you even if you didn't got accepted ? or just ignore you ?

Well from what I can tell I think they just ignore you and they'll probably email you if you get accepted the next time.

Weird. I first got the email for the Fifa Online closed beta yesterday, and then today early morning I got the NFS Online email. Killing two birds with one stone. Shweet.

The newer your hardware and OS, definitely the more inclined they'll be to accept you. For the most part, the game will run on most Windows x86 versions. They're more interested in the obscure stuff. For example, I'm running 7 x64. They'll want to know how a 32-bit game runs on this 64-bit OS (which should be fine).

the minimum specs are bs. I have:

Processor: Pentium D
RAM: 4GB
Graphics Card (upgraded since beta 1): 32MB ATI something

and i could play WO with visuals on low and still get 40FPS. the Minimum specs to play are WAY lower than that.

Sinister
03-18-2010, 06:47 PM
and?

Currently the specs they put up are generic, once they are through the betas they will have a more intricate knowledge of what the lowest system specs are / will be.

Well the server goes back up tomorrow for Beta 2. I'm hoping the reason the game wouldn't load past a black screen and green cursor was because the server was down. It would be nice if they let you know that without manually having to check the site.

PS: I figured out why the specs are so low. It's because it runs on the Unity engine. If you want to see just how powerful it is on low-spec hardware, check this game out (in-browser): http://www.interstellarmarines.com/game/bullseye/?guest

I have been following NFS World for quite some time now. I just hope I get in because I applied a long time ago.

it doesn't matter how long ago you applied apparently. for example in my case i applied a day before the original beta testing and i got in the first day. just have to wait patiently or be lucky

Diablo

If you say that you've had previous beta-testing experience, it's much more likely they'll accept you. They want people to report bugs, not just play the game.

Thanks a lot. Keep going!

Well, Beta 3 is up and they sent out another email even though I participated in Beta 2. Updating now, the update is ~247MB.

The beta signups are pretty much closed, the game is released next month.
