    Let's have SotA be the first game to break the tyranny of WASD as the default control keys.
    WASD makes no sense.

    You know what makes sense? ESDF. Because that way your fingers stay on the home keys when you're typing. So much easier to play with ESDF than WASD. Please add ESDF as an optional control scheme to SotA - or even better, make the it the default.

    Just say no to WASD!

    Wait, there's already a "Game Entry" forum thread for that. Perhaps Game Entry should be renamed instead?

    The answer is "Thursday December 12 at 10:30 AM Central Time." It's in the original post. You'll be able to download the client prior to that, but cannot log in until then.

    Dammit, I will be at work until 630pm tomorrow and late to the game! Oh well, better late than never ;) I will DL and patch tonight, so I am prepared to run tomorrow evening when I'm home from work.

    @Darkstarr and @FireLotus,

    Can we get an official stance on screenshots and videos from Release 1? Are we free to show our Family, Friends and Guild Members? I had heard there might not be an NDA for this Release (and certainly I know that can change in the future when skill lists and spell lists and such come out).

    I've heard the question come up a lot and rather then running with scissors, I'd like to know without a doubt what the official word is (as I've seen no NDA or EULA yet).

    Thanks so much! Great Job and Looking forward to Release 1. :)

    As with our entire process we strive to be transparent, hence no NDA. Therefore you are free to share screens and videos as far and wide as you wish. Our only request is that you try to keep them positive. Lots of pics and vids of bugs will not help us gain more support for the project.

    Also, we should probably make it VERY clear to people that this is PRE-ALPHA so people don't think it's the final level of quality of the game - I imagine many things will be revised over the next 10 months of development.

    On some machines, the decompressing step could take a while, some people had to wait 5 minutes or more.
