I am sure many of you were waiting for this day.

Today we are starting recruitment for the beta of Panzer Corps 2!

We'll start with a forum post here today to allow forum users to start signing up immediately, and we'll follow up with a general public announcement later on this week. We are in need of willing players who won't shy away from pointing bugs to us as well as provide us with useful feedback and criticism :)

You can sign up here. (PC - Windows only)

I just applied and am eager to hear. Legacy began years ago with Panzer General 1, 2, 3 (the dreadful one) and then came Panzer Corps, which knocked our socks off. Now the legacy continues!!! As Lee said, before the battle, "strike the tent."

Boy, just signed. I saw the movie from play on twichtv, looks amazing. Can't wait to buy and play. Btw Ian, the beta testers will have some discount on pc2? Slitherine usually offers some...

You can sign up here.
I assume Mac and iPad users need not apply since these platforms are usually supported as an afterthought, but the link seems to imply that they can join the beta. Please fix.

To me, it quite clearly says 'PC' in green letters right below the product art. I'm 99% sure that doesn't mean Panzer Corps...? ;) :wink:

What information in the link seems to make you think about mac?

Panzer Corps 2 is, at the moment, only supported on PC. Therefore only computer users will be accepted in the beta.

After you agree to the NDA, the product specs question states "Device e.g. PC, Mac or iPad, CPU, RAM, operating system, graphic card, display resolution". That implies they are open to devices that aren't PCs, when in fact they are not. That text should be fixed to indicate that this is a PC game and that a feature incomplete, buggy, unsupported, Mac version might get made by a 3rd party porting house at some indeterminate point in the future.

1. Why are you agreeing to an NDA that clearly does not apply to your circumstance? (It says PC)
2. Are you really saying that the term e.g. is bothering you in this circumstance? Because e.g. doesn't mean imply. It means example.

What are they going to not give examples of hardware, because giving examples is to help define people who might have difficulty with answering that question (those of less technical expertise for example). And who's to say they aren't using this, among other things, to determine what their consumers are using for hardware. I can imagine them noticing 'wow this game has a lot of players who don't use PC applying to it, maybe we should pay attention to that'.

First off, the NDA page doesn't clearly say this game is Windows only. On the other hand, it does have PC, which happens to also be the name of the game, in small type in a couple places. Second, if the game is Windows only, why not state that clearly and provide examples of Windows hardware to reinforce that message so other people don't get their hopes up?

That goes against your theory that non-PC people have no business agreeing to the NDA.

Slitherine already has info about how many iOS and Mac users they have. Unfortunately that data is flawed because their Mac and iOS games are shoddily written which in turn means fewer people buys them, which they interpret as there not being a market for them.

Btw, PzC only runs with warnings on macOS 10.14. It may well not run on 10.15, which means by the fall people who paid good money for it as recently as today won't be able to open it.
