I'm playing on the PS4. They gave friend beta keys that were only good for yesterday and today. Here is one I still have available if anyone has time this afternoon (its up from 2-9 PM EST today)

Playstation 4 Code:
2XBT-AENB-J24L

kinda odd that they gave these keys out with 2 sessions left. Would be nice if they dropped a few more dates in between now and the 15th. But then again, i'm good either way as I'd hate to burn through too much content during beta.

Is this the last day of the beta? I just assumed they hadn't announced more yet.

I've really enjoyed it but I admit I've played times. Twice with friends and once alone. It was so much fun with my friends that I kind of felt blah when I was exploring alone.

Things to remember: Ghouls in Fallout are NOT undead the way we normally think of them. Non-feral ghouls (which we'd be) are more or less the same people they were when they were human, they just LOOK like zombies. They don't die or age, they don't eat.

I think it'd be a great idea for us to try to adapt as much of the West Virginia/Appalachian accent into our language as we can. We've also been isolated for quite some time in/around a probably-faulty non-Vault-Tec fallout shelter. Given that we were teens when we were incarcerated, our speech has likely mutated a bit via our "in-group slang."

Aside from the numbered rules, what you want to do at this link is to listen to the audio tingie up top. Unlike most southerners (and New Yawkahs), West Virginians DO pronounce their Rs. Sometimes even when there shouldn't be an R there (so "holler," "foller," "warsh" and so forth). Then there's how long I is pronounced. Non and fov rather than nine and five.

Note that it's y'all/all y'all rather than "yinz" (what they say in nearby western Pennsylvania).

As in AAVE, pen and pin are both pronounced "pin." I don't know if West Virginians say "inkpin" sometimes to clarify the difference between the two. Probably that won't ever come up.


Hey now, not all of us talk like that!
Tho when a few of us moved to Myrtle Beach years ago and a friend went back for a wedding and we were asked where'd he go, I said "that big orgy in West Virginia" and when asked what orgy, I said "his family reunion"

Since servers are going to be 24 people apiece, is there a prospect of guilds or player groups reserving servers to play on with just their group? Or do new players randomly get assigned to a server?

I believe on release, the joining is random unless you are joining a friend from your social list. Servers are all public so randoms will be present.

Down the road, we expect there to be private server offerings and that will allow for more control.

I am not sure about guild reservation systems. That may or may not be a thing down the road.

Seems most involved discuss what's going on in discord.

So far I like it. It isn't a trailblazing game by any means but I don't find it as terrible as people looking for hits on their youTube channels do. Then again, I play with 2-3 friends usually and I think that helps a lot.

There isn't a lot of PvP in the open but around the 'settlements' it isn't hard to find. Still working on it. We've been 1 hit by low levels and high levels (we expect that one) but in other fights I killed multiple without a scratch. Might just be due to equipment used.

I've had the game for most of a week, my first character probably can't adequately respec, so I'm thinking of starting a new one. The game's got some rough spots, but it's MUCH better than the reviews and hyperbolic YouTube videos would suggest. It's also available NOW (or just yestermuun?) for $40. Jump on that if it's still going.

Unlike past Bethesda outings its future is rather dependent on players continuing to enjoy it and perhaps spending a buck or two down the line for atoms to use in the Atom Shop. At present I'm swimming in atoms, the game gives them away for doing random accomplishment-style things. Before you look suspiciously on these items as evil cash-grabs, they are blueprints. The ones that are dupes of common in-game items (like the greaser jacket) are newer-looking "prewar" versions.

How to function as a guild: There's a way to select "Play with Friends" when you first connect. Your friends on Bethesda.net, not on Steam, Discord nor any other platform. You need to make your friends in-game or know their names ahead of time and search them on the launcher. See which of us are playing, join us there.

Probably you want to coordinate on our Fallout 76 channel on Shadowclan's Discord server as well.

My username on Bethesda.net for this game is Gorg_Worshinton. Please add me.

If I fail to accept, reply here or on Discord and I'll friend request you. Sometimes friend requests have been a bit wonky (though I think that's my in-game friend's account and/or PC to blame).

Here's another thought on what Shadowclan COULD BE in Fallout 76.

What were we in UO that almost nobody outside of the clan realized we were?

Communists! Yub, even Baggi was a commie. *~[B-{P>

Wouldn't it be interesting to play as communists? Not necessarily as Chinese communists, perhaps just as American fellow-travelers? Maybe we've dug into one of the many conspiracy theories suggesting the U.S. Gov't and Vault-Tec launched the bombs.
