We might lower it or make it free Alpha at a later stage. For now we will see how it goes. We do not need a lot of people, infact we do not want a lot of people for Alpha.
But we will see about that. It depends on how far we will get.
150 frigging euros for just the alpha?!!!!! are u guys that broke? make it free to play dude or let us pay 25 euro for the game and then own it and keep alpha running for as long as it takes like Dayz Standalone is doing except dont be shit like dayz standalone lol.
When they said they would release an alpha in December, they didn't mean it was meant for all donors to test. The alpha is for the developers, chosen individuals, and those that donated the $150 to test.
DayZ is not in "alpha". Nowadays, Alpha or Early-release is short for "We will release this game months early with loads of bugs, say its the full game, then frequently update it saying its the Alpha". When in reality, the alpha of a game is the very early build. Many textures, sounds, and structure with either be garbage or not exist.
Also, FSE isn't broke.
