We’ve started selecting the beta testers for the BattleBlock Theater Closed Beta! Selected registrants will be notified via e-mail in waves—BIG, crashing waves—and not all at once so don’t fret if you haven’t received anything yet! It will take some time to go through all the applications and it’s better to start early. If you haven’t filled out a registration form already, you can still submit one HERE. Don’t forget to read all the documents and pre-requisites you need to fulfill.
If you’re super stoked and can’t wait to see if you’ll be chosen, you still have a few more chances to get a guaranteed spot through our official contests held by various websites. This week IGN will be holding a contest on Thursday, February 14th. And for those who speak Italian, The Nerd Magazine is doing a special “Easter Egg Hunt” type of contest all week long. Just remember that even if you win any of these contests you will still need to adhere to the Terms & Conditions, NDA and fill out the beta registration form.
Last but not least, we have an important part of the beta registration process you’ll need to check on.
Many people who signed up for a new forum account during the first few days of beta sign ups may discover that their forum account is no longer active. Seems like the heavy web traffic prevented a lot of people from getting validation e-mails, which are necessary because accounts are deleted after 7 days without validating the account. Be sure to do the following ASAP:
- Check if you can still log in to the forums with the username you registered for the beta with. If you can, then you should be okay. If you can’t, go to step 2.
- If you are unable to log in because it cannot find that account then most likely it was deleted. Try to create a forum account with the same username that you used to register for the beta. If it works, then you do not need to contact us.
- Only if you are unable to re-create the forum username that you used previously should you create a new forum username. If you must create a new forum username, then send us a support ticket with your old forum username and your new forum username and we’ll update your beta registration form with the new info.
Having a valid forum account DOES increase your chances of getting into the BattleBlock Theater Beta. Just sayin…
