OK just to help set expectations and let you guys know what's going on with our servers on the backend. We have regional and global match making, but we don't have lobby migration in place. That would have taken a month+ to do well. We also wanted to see how lobbies front and back fill. Here's some details on what to expect.

 

QUICKPLAY - This will be your primary way to connect to server to play the beta. You will see this in the main menu as your first choice. Upon clicking you may have to wait upwards of 5 mins before connecting to a server. It is checking where you are in the world, then narrowing down to country, region, city, to assure you connect to players that are in your area. This keeps ping low. If you've been waiting for 5 mins and you are not connecting, back out and try again. If you connect to a lobby and you're the only player sitting in a lobby...(forever alone) Just hang tight. You should start to see others connect in. Don't ready up until you at least have 5 players as that will make for a better match. If you sit in a lobby for several minutes alone, back out and try again. Another option you may try is to go into quickplay and then invite your friends to that lobby. This works perfectly.

 

PRIVATE MATCH - This option runs flawlessly as it is a 100% Peer-to-Peer. Which means the person that sets up the private match is the host. So you need to have a speedy connection for the match to run smoothly. Once you have a private match setup, use INVITE FRIENDS button built into the lobby to get your friends in.

 

PARTY - The beta supports parties. You can set this up in the menu. Just click parties and send out invites. Once you have a party banded together you can start either a QUICKPLAY session (dedicated servers) OR a PRIVATE MATCH.

 

Will update with more soon. Thanks guys and we appreciate your patience.

Will parties prioritize running as counselors?

 

Is the prioritization system in place at all? SO you can select what you prefer?


BETA GONE

Holy crap! Private matches in beta? Party mode in game. AND BETA?! This is PRENOMINAL!!! :D I think many of us expected ONLY quick play in beta. Thank you so much for this, everyone who's bringing this to life! You are amazing human beings with just the right blood lust we all seem to have xD

You would have had to back a tier on kickstarter that Contained the F&F beta to get access. All other orders of the game are eligible for the closed beta starting 12/20. Beta is not yet live and keys will be e-mailed to the e-mail associated with your kickstarter account. For more info on what kickstarter tiers qualified please see this thread.

The tier I selected did qualify. However, I had thought people were already playin from their posts. That's why got a bit annoyed. Turns out they aren't. & they haven't sent out the keys yet.

Just curious because I am a Console player but I have the PC to run the beta and will be in on both Beta's . I don't have a game pad for my PC so will the keyboard controls be pretty much like most PC games ?  I think there is a patch out somewhere that would allow me to use my PS 4 Controller but not sure. Hope the beta drops soon . Thanks !
