Signed up a long long long time ago. To the point where I'm in other invite only betas and completely forgot about this until I received this.
The rest of this email did include a beta key, which they do say lets you continue to advance in the next beta test. However right now it is useless outside of account creation and preloading the game.
Problem I have is, well, according to the email title, The Elder Scrolls Online Beta: Help Us Break the Record!, feels a bit scummy.
I'd be happy to test and provide feedback on your game and my rig free of charge, but not allowing me to play,character create, even login or see login screen news until Friday at noon ?
Notice how the red text points out be there at noon on a weekend is the record requirement.
I've only had crashes with the campaign. They've been specific so I'll list them. As far as multiplayer I've had 0 problems. Running x64 for both unless otherwise stated.
- Crash 1 During the beginning when the chopper crashes while the building is collapsing still with Dunn. Happened once, relaunched, didn't reoccur.
- Crash 2 After entering the hatch and going into the underwater swimming section with Kovic. Attempted at least 5-6 times, always when making that first left where swim/turn controls appear on screen. Was able to get through it on the x86 version.
- Crash 3 continuing in x86 from Crash 2 I played to this point of a new chapter where while walking behind Hannah and she starts talking to Irish, the same DirectX Error crash occurred all 3 times.
All drivers up to date, dxsetup run in admin mode. Who knows maybe I'll get past crash 3 with x64 until I have to use x86 to get past whatever happens next.
Absolutely love it. Full on sims like DCS are amazing but the way this game offers Arcade, Historical, and Full Real Battles I think is really great. Super impressed with the work invested in this and I think the level of detail is amazing, not just graphics but the flight models and physics.
Once I literally had to land using my flaps because both my ailerons and elevators were non-functional.

I need to buy a gaming PC. I know plenty of places are are over-priced and building your own is far cheaper. But at this point the necessity of my job + the hours i have to work, well, fuck me on taking the time to build it but garner the money to buy one.
I'm looking for any great experiences doing the same, and trust worthy review sites of gaming rigs.
So far one that's popping up a lot but getting mixed reviews is the Cyberpower Black Pearl ($1329) Link. I'd love to hear the GB opinion.
