    While I wouldn't mind if you guys were a tiny bit more specific about what the current issue is, I've waited a long time for this so I can't wait a bit more no problem. :p

    Otherwise I'm just lurking for now and refreshing from time to time. If it has to be up tomorrow/in a few more hours from now instead then that's ok. I'm mostly confused why you picked a Thursday to start the beta and not Friday though? Unless that was extremely intentional for a reason i'm not aware of. o.o

    @ManeSix If you guys need a little more time on the game, we can all wait a little longer! Don't feel like you are forced to release it.

    One of my favorite things about this is watching the little "Backer's Beta news" banner change over time.

    (Maybe I should just go to bed...)

    No, this is actually on us. We're doing a final revision pass/stress-test on the changes we made to nail that issue earlier and its consequences.

    Valve Standard Time always gets you when you least expect it.

    Always.

    Here's looking at you, release timers.

    It's not anything I'm going to get super upset over. Been waiting this long- what's another day if it means something that won't crash 10/10 games?

    You did mention an eleventh-hour issue and I had a hunch your team was working on it all day and evening to try and match the release time.
    I think at this point everyone is curious about whether the release will still be out for tonight. Oh well, I hope the aforementioned issue isn't bugging you as much!

    35 minutes to go.

    Can the Mane6 crew still make it on time?

    Will the Beta get to the backers before midnight?

    Will Oleander confess her love for cheese?

    ALL THESE QUESTIONS ANSWERED...



    Eventually.

    Don't do it! As soon as you fall asleep, the beta will drop!
    ...
    On second thought, go take a nap right now.

    Okay.

    Beta starting. With 22ish minutes to spare on the deadline, too. ACTION MOVIE LAST SECOND DEFUSE THE NUKE GEEEEEEET.

    Making a proper forum/site/IGG post in a few minutes, but you guys should start seeing keys appear in your boxes shortly.

    Beta Forums also opening in a bit.

    Let's get this rollin'

    Bad news: Lunch break ends in 10 minutes, and I've gotta get back to work for a few more hours. The rest of this shift is gonna be loooooong.
