Star Sonata 2 Frequently Asked Questions
Got a question about the C2 Alpha, Beta, and release? Look no further. I've compiled a list of questions people have had about SS2 and will try to get them all answered! If you don't see your question below just ask in the comments! We also reserve the right to change the information in this FAQ at any time.
What is the Alpha?
The alpha stage of testing is what is currently going on right now. It is closed to a few select people, and 30 individuals who were lucky enough to like the Facebook page when it launched. We will expand the number of alpha testers a bit more a week or so before Beta starts.
What is the Beta?
The Beta stage of testing is designed to fine tune the game for release. You have to sign up to participate in the beta and beta keys will be released in stages. So the sooner you sign up, the sooner you’ll get in!
When does the Beta start?
The beta will begin sometime on Saturday September 10th. We currently do not have an exact time on that day scheduled but we will let you know as soon as we can. The sooner you sign up the sooner you’ll get to play on the 10th.
How do I participate in the Beta?
You have to sign up. To do so go to StarSonata2.com and enter your email, then click "Sign Up Now." You then need to check your email to confirm and click the link in that email. After you've done that step you're done! You will receive your key by email sometime starting September 10.
Do I have to be a Pay to Play to participate in the Beta?
No! P2P’s and F2P’s can both participate, you just have to sign up! There will be no level limits or restrictions in the beta.
I'm already an Alpha tester, do I need to sign up for the Beta?
How do I download Star Sonata 2?
We will be providing this information closer to the Beta launch date.
What will happen to Star Sonata 1 while the SS2 Beta is going on?
Star Sonata 1 will still be going on and nothing will change. If participating in beta tests is not your cup of tea don't sweat. SS1 will still be around until SS2’s formal launch.
What will happen to Star Sonata 1 after the SS2 Beta is concluded and SS2 is launched?
It’ll operate similar to a universe reset. You’ll pack up and be ready for a new universe in SS1. When the server goes down on SS1 your characters will be moved over to SS2.
I already have a character or two in SS1, can I use that character in the beta?
No. The beta will be entirely fresh new characters.
How long will the Beta Test last?
Star Sonata 2 Beta is planned to run for a little under 2 months.
What is the official release date for Star Sonata 2?
We are currently scheduled to move out of beta and launch on November 5th, 2011.
What happens to my SS1 characters when SS2 gets released after beta?
When the beta ends your SS1 characters will be moved to SS2.
Will I be able to keep my same account name and character names for the beta?
Your account name will remain the same, but you will have to create new characters. If you wish to keep your character names sign up early! The first person to claim that character name gets it. But only for the beta.
What happens to my Beta Test characters when the beta ends?
You will no longer have access to your beta characters. They will be deleted.
What’s the point of playing in the beta if our new characters will be wiped?
Prizes! In addition to helping us find bugs so we can eliminate them you’ll also be able to participate in contests for prizes. Currently the prizes and the competitions themselves are secret. We will divulge more information closer to Beta launch day. Prizes will be given to the account that you used during beta.
