  1. Updated numbers to be clear: There are 13788 people signed up as of right now, 1081 registered (I invited more in after this post), 2430 invites total sent, for a 44% registration rate…I’m still inviting people in slowly until I get the lobby scalable. []

    Interesting that people have free choice of any name they want and you still get people putting numbers at the end of their handle. Must be the lasting effects of AOL.

  2. Keith says:

    fuzzyspo0n is my favorite.

  3. ilay122 says:

    i want and i am not there :(

  4. AngryTetris says:

    My friend said he was in the lobby alone the other day. I told him to spam in chat that he wanted to play a game with me, just to see if you did requests. XD

  5. Maaan I’d love to be on that list!

  6. Wessel says:

    Hey, Notch is there too!

  7. Forer says:

    Son of a. Followed this for years and just found the beta registration yesterday, imagine my hype “Oh hey people got added!” to see “Nope”

  8. FuzzYspo0N says:

    Look ma! I’m on the internets!

  9. Remi says:

    Interestingly, “spy” is taken, but “sniper” is not :)

  10. Comrade says:

    When you say, ‘registered’, are these 999 invites sent or 999 accepted and confirmed invites?
    How

    You’re up to, what? 15000 registered for the beta?
    How many invites sent?
    How many invites accepted and paid for?

  11. demeteloaf says:

    Yeah, so i missed the initial beta sign up and ended up signing up waaaaayyy late.

    WHY MUST YOU TORMENT ME SO, AWESOME GAME THAT I CAN’T PLAY? :p

    • Cleetose says:

      I checked this site every day for a while, except the day beta registration started.  So I’m probably around 5,000 back.  At least I have Diablo III to keep me occupied for a while (though I still check my email way too often).

    • SecretUserNameNotDisclosedBecauseIWantToRegister says:

      I have done worse. I heard about the beta sign-up the day the registration started. I went to the website and read the following: “please only sign up if you’re planning on paying for the Early-Access Beta when your email invite arrives”. I was not sure I wanted to pay $15, so I did not sign up. One year later, I decided to sign-up. And now, I learn that 7% of the people really bought the beta when invited! Why did I not sign-up?

    • checker says:

      Wait, no, ~40% buy it when invited.  I haven’t invited all 13k people in yet.  I’ll update the post to reflect that.

      I definitely don’t want people signing up who aren’t sure they want to pay, I need to be able to predict how many people will pay when I send out invites for load balancing right now, so you did the right thing by not signing up when you weren’t sure.

      Okay, I updated the footnote with the latest numbers.

    • SecretUserNameNotDisclosedBecauseIWantToRegister says:

      Okay. I misunderstood. 40% is better.

    • checker says:

      Yeah, the 44% is almost right at my optimistic hope for 50%, so I’m happy about it.

    • demeteloaf says:

      Thanks.

      The number of total invites sent out is is actually probably the most helpful to all of us waiting for an invite, since i think a lot of people have a vague estimate for where they are on the list (I’m guessing i’m probably at like 11k or something :( But now i know you’re about 25% of the way there, woo!)

    • checker says:

      Yeah, although I do 60% in-order and 40% random for every batch of invites, so that complicates estimation a bit.

    • demeteloaf says:

      Did not know that.

      Don’t know whether to be happy that i have a chance at getting in sooner, or anxious cause i had already resigned myself to not getting in for a while, and now I’m gonna get my hopes up every time a new batch of invites goes up.

      Any way i can convince you to replace your random number generator with one that is heavily biased towards selecting names that start with dem? :p

    • SecretUserNameNotDisclosedBecauseIWantToRegister says:

      In the worst case, people in the 11k queue will get selected with an in-order invite after the next 80 batches.

      Among 200 invites sent for each batch, there are 80 invites sent at random. Let us start numbering batches starting from 0 with the last batch (n=0). If we imagine people signing-up are negligible, at least until the 80th batch, the chance of being selected at random in the n-th batch knowing we have not been selected until the (n-1)-th batch (included) is: http://goo.gl/NNEAs

      For the next batch (n=1), the chance to be selected at random is 0.4*200/(13788-2430-0.6*200), which is a bit more than 0.7%. For the other batches, refer to: http://i.imgur.com/0G36V.jpg

    • Cleetose says:

      Hope for the best, expect the worst.

    • SecretUserNameNotDisclosedBecauseIWantToRegister says:

      Just a correction of a mistake I made: this is the chance of being selected at random in a batch between the next batch (included) and the n-th batch (included), which is why the probability increases so fast.

      The conditional probability is lower and increases slowly: http://goo.gl/KHDSy

    • SecretUserNameNotDisclosedBecauseIWantToRegister says:

      Forget about what I wrote: the conditional probability is the numerator, the chance of being selected at random in the n-th batch *for the first time* is the product of the two factors, there is no division.

      Let’s rather think about the game. I am going to bed.

  12. Tucker says:

    Dang, just got the e-mail. I’ll be registering very quickly, just gotta put some cash in my account. Was excited as hell when I saw the e-mail though.

  13. SignPainter says:

    Just because I am curious, when you get an  account, do you get to select a nickname?

  14. qwerty645 says:

    Hey there, is there any way to check if my beta sign up request is still active in some way? I signed up about 5 days after it opened. If I’m incorrect in assuming that I was fairly high up on the list, then it sounds like you’ve got a great fan base going and congratulations! Thanks for your time and best of luck with development.

    • checker says:

      If you try to sign up again and it says you’re already signed up, then you’re good. The in-order signups are still on the first day, sadly, so you’ve got a bit of a wait unless you get lucky and your random number is picked.

    • qwerty645 says:

      Thanks for the reply! My fingers are crossed and I look forward to getting a chance to play your game. It looks as if you’ve done a great job so far.

  15. LowTierSteve says:

    Just read that SpyParty is gonna be at EVO – that is super hype! Congrats to Checker for getting involved with that community; that is going to spread the word about this game like wildfire. Now I’m even more upset that I decided not to go this year.

  16. pliny says:

    Incidentally how many first-day signups were there? (Full disclosure: I’m one of them, 2011-05-10 19:03:04 haha)
