    Default trove alpha invites.. when is the next wave? or am i just doing something wrong?

    so i bought a pack for trove and the pack included a priority list place which means whenever the next wave of alpha invites goes out i instantly get a place.... but there's been no posts on trove news since the 22nd of November.. is it dead or did i buy the alpha pack for no reason at all? because it says I'm not authorized to play yet i bought the pack at the beginning of December.. just after the invite wave so i'm kinda ticked off that i cant play a game i've payed for

    So many problems with this thread.

    1. You posted in the Rift - off topic. How about http://www.reddit.com/r/Trove?
    2. You didn't pay for the game or access. If you paid $200 you get immediate access otherwise it's in a priority queue.

    The whole way they are handling Trove invites is silly. It got silly when they started letting people pay for access. I had approached them about streaming the game on a regular basis and getting some attention for it and they said they would try and get us in. Sent them an email with our info and nothng was ever done. At this point none of us even care anymore about the game, we are busy with Starbound and other stuff. I imagine this would never have been an issue If they hadn't jumped the gun with the selling of alpha invites.

    Yes they did, before they started selling keys. I approached them right around the time they started to do this. And our stream is a lot bigger than many of the people I see streaming Trove. I think its simply cause they have to service the people who bought keys first. As they should. I just think it never should have been done in the first place, at least not with the way Trove is set up.

    Priority access doesn't mean you instantly get a key during the next wave of invites. There have been a lot of supporters already, they are letting them in based on when they supported the game.

    Like it was said though, they post all of the time over at http://www.reddit.com/r/Trove/ so you should check it out when you can.

    I am not in love with the way they did the priority access and wave invites, but it could have definitely been a lot worse as well.

    What also might be interesting to note is there were also many "non supporters" that got a hold of keys and never used them which is sad. For something like this to happen as content itself is implemented it might be more understandable that any developer would have to be careful. Add the Trove Supporter tiers & making sure those who do support are able to use their keys without too much hassle would be another factor along with a ton of other things we don't see I am sure.

    As others have mentioned: Trove Subreddit - is the place to keep fingers on the pulse of Trove
    Also head here on Fridays where Keys are given out by Trion and the generous community: Trion Worlds Livestream

    To get instant access also check out here: Trove Supporter Packs.

    With the New Year back in full swing: Player Creations are exciting and the community itself are so wonderful on top of many other developments coming out with the hardworking Trion team so I hope you'll persevere!
