  1. So there's a difference between the Kickstarter Founder Packs and the Alpha Supporter Packs. Bronze Founders unfortunately do not receive Beta Keys. Reference:
  2. I'm sorry could you rephrase that or expand a bit, I'm not sure I understand the question. Anyone who didn't purchase a pledge prior to Beta would need to either purchase a Beta subscription or use a Beta key. Ah, so even on your end it says it's been used. I would first double check with your friend and have him try to Reset Password to see if maybe an account was created anyways if you guys haven't done that already. If it really didn't go through, you may have to create a support ticket to Novaquark for help as this is the first time I'm seeing this issue. Not sure if a
  3. What does it say in your account? Is the Beta key you shared "Pending" or "Gifted"?
  4. Yeah, you should be able to gift your friend the Beta key now. https://www.dualuniverse.game/ > Login at top-right > Select "My Products" Your Beta Keys should show up there under "Giftable Beta Codes"
  5. Unfortunately, for the time being, the three-month option is the minimum subscription you can purchase. The option to purchase a single month subscription will most likely be available during Official Release, and there's a possibility they could allow it further into Beta, but for now that's not an option.

  6. No, you are right in that for new players who did not purchase any of the pledge packs, their game time starts ticking with the purchase of these subscription. For your question though, I believe they gave their short blurb on the page where you purchase the subscription, but they've also recorded their response in a Q&A as well. Basically, it's a combination of their need for funding to support additional players on the servers and also so that there is (albeit obviously not foolproof) a layer of screening against players that may come into the game simply to grief.

  7. If you're giving them a Beta Key to use then they will have full access during for the entirety of Beta (until the Official Release) with or without the referral program. These two things are separate, and at the time of writing this comment it's still being implemented. I don't think simply recruiting them will give them any free subscription though. With that said, f you friend doesn't mind starting a bit latter you might as well have them wait so that if they ever pay for subscription (for Beta or down the road) you'll get credit for it and they get some free starting items.
  8. In case you haven't found the answer yet, the Beta invitation system is still being worked on at the moment (they got a bit delayed with the revamp of the site). An official announcement should come when it is ready. Reference:

  11. From what I undestand Beta is being treated essentially as a soft-launch so a wipe is not expected for the Official Release and whatever you create will remain in some form or fashion. Novaquark has stated they are planning an upgrade to the planet after Beta that may require some constructs to be removed, but they will be returned to you in the form of "magic blueprints" with everything included and will allow you to respawn your constructs as soon as the server is restarted. Reference:
  12. Ah, so this was actually brought up in a recent thread. This should be the most up-to-date information regarding Beta keys for Kickstarter backers (See Question #11):
  13. Edit: In case others stumble upon this thread, see Dhara's response below. FAQ appears to be out of date. --- While Gold Packs are equivalent to Sponsor Packs, I don’t believe they’ll include Beta Keys. ”Basically, we decided to upgrade founder pledges with supporter rewards except: DACs from Supporter Packs Beta Keys from Supporter Packs In-game and forum titles from Supporter Packs Name in credits as a Supporter backer T-Shirt from Patron Pack.” Reference: https://support.dualthegame.com/hc/en-us/articles/36000
  14. If the pack is linked it should show up here: https://community.dualthegame.com/accounts/profile/ > Edit profile > About me > Display pack Beyond that I'm afraid waiting for the support ticket is your best bet, although you can try getting the staff's attention on Discord as well. From what I understand, the Beta key will grant access to all of Beta (no need to pay for subscription for the entirety of Beta). I haven't seen anything that would suggest this would include any of the exclusive perks that come with a particular pledge pack such as DACs, Pets, special Ou
  15. No, in fact Novaquark has stated they will end Alpha pledge packs a couple weeks before the start of Beta. If you're only concerned with Beta then whether it is cheaper or not will depend on how long Beta lasts. A pledge will guarantee full access to Beta while purchasing Beta subscriptions will be by the month, in increments of three. If, for example, Beta lasts 6 months then subscription would cost $38.45 versus a $60 pledge that would give you an extra Beta key and three DACs. Judging from the latest Release Roadmap which states Beta is expected to run from "Summer 202

  17. You try submitting a ticket yet? May be the best way if the team isn't keeping up here. https://support.dualthegame.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  18. Yes, there should have been a separate email. Mine was sent the day before from noreply@dualthegame.com with subject "Welcome to Dual Universe".
  19. Nope, if your friends sign up with beta keys they will not have to pay a fee for beta. Reference:
  20. Doesn't seem like it went through. Showing as Unavailable for me. Maybe upload to a sharing site and send the link or try sending in a PM? If you want to test something that will work with 100% certainty just to rule out that you're not missing any steps, you can go to flaticon[dot]com , select an image, download the SVG version and try it first. If that works then maybe it is the image file that's the issue.
  21. Hm, you want to try sending me the file then? I can take a look.
  22. Oh I see. I don't know how the others are doing it, but you should be able to open the SVG file in a text editor and just paste that code into the box.
  23. Hey, I believe organization management has moved in-game. You can see the interface in one of their Alpha 3 videos: Reference:
  24. Contributor Pack grants you: Alpha Access - And any testing phase that follows Alpha 3 Dual Access Coupons (DAC) - Each DAC equals 1 month of subscription* So to answer your questions directly: How long can I play for free? All of Alpha + Beta (August 27, 2020 - ?) + 3 months* of Official Release, assuming you use the DACs What will be the first month i have to pay? Fourth month into Official Release at the earliest (Maybe sometime in 2021) * The final price of subscription is lower than originally projected when the support packs
  25. Maybe for the official release, but otherwise saving for family and clearing my conscience (alternatively, philanthropy). Will definitely be making the most of that weekend though.
