All There is to Know About LU Test Phases

Post by FD_LegoFan101 on Fri 09 Apr 2010, 7:55 pm

In The Beginning...
In the beginning, there was the Alpha Test phase. This phase was open to a very limited amount of people, consisting of LEGO Kids Inner Circle Members (who joined before Dec. 7), Friends and Family of LEGO Employees, and a few CES visitors. The phase lasted until late-January, when the game was rumored to be limited to "private servers", although most non-alphas don't really know what those were, or if they really existed.

I Heard it Through the Twitter Vine!
In early February, a sign up page was leaked on Twitter by a LEGO Employee. The link was pointed out by only a few sites, and was once thought to be counterfeit by some, until LEGO confirmed its validity upon emailing them.

The Present...
Right now, the Closed Beta phase is underway, and quite a bit more people were chosen to participate than in the Alpha test. LEGO still has the beta signup page available, and continues to send out new invites about one day each week.

That's all I can tell you, perhaps someone else knows more, eh?

I used that twitter link, too. Only a few days before it was officially announced, though.

Before the LEGO Universe Closed-Beta sign up was official on LU site. It had been put on a twitter page. That's the twitter page agentminky was talking about.

I think it's long gone (and useless, as it's no different than the Beta Signup on the official website now), but I believe the username was @downtherabbithole. I should probably check that before you look it up, though. Wink

I'll update this post with my results, if you still wish to see the Twitter page. Wink

UPDATE: Looks like he's gone. :-/

I used the twitter page too, but I was chosen later on. Smile

EDIT: The rabbit is still there... twitter.com/therabbitshole

Yes, LEGO have a Twitter page, but I don't think it's "therabbitshole" their name.

Actually, I never saw it, but I know because of LegoFan.

Yeah, therabbitshole isn't LU's official Twitter - but he IS a member of the LU team.

He was the first one to leak the Beta Signup page - and, I believe, how a lot of us were accepted early on. Wink
