    Skyforge's Closed Beta Test 1 is scheduled to begin March 11, 2015 and last a week, with additional CBT's to quickly follow. Information on the closed beta tests is limited regarding times and durations, however the Russian CBTs began with a week long test and a day or so downtime continuing until this weeekend. The Russian closed beta is scheduled to end March 13th, "closely" followed by their open beta. While information on the time and duration are undisclosed, classes, progression, mechanics, game play and copies of live streams are available at the North American & EU website. Founder's Packs are also available for purchase starting at $19.99 US that grant access to the closed beta tests. There will only be two servers, one for EU (in Amsterdam) and one for NA (In California). You may select either, but characters cannot be moved after selection. It appears most of us are going to be on the US server.

    The NDA from the closed technical test last fall has been completely??? lifted. The community manager is allowing live streaming and blogging of the closed beta. The announcement while not specifically saying there is no NDA, does say that discussion and even live streaming is permitted.

    [CBT1] Streaming and Youtube - General Discussion - Skyforge - Official Forum

    Because of the open communication stance and public discussion of beta invites and founders packs on the Skyforge and other gaming forums I'd like to do a roll call to see who would like to participate, has an invite or has purchased a Founder's Pack for the Skyforge Closed Beta Test.

    Anyone interested please reply to this thread. Thanks and look forward to seeing you in Skyforge.

    As you may be able to guess I will be participating. Hope to play with many of you in the coming weeks.

    Owing to the dual naming convention in Skyforge I'll pull out an ancient nick/handle from pre-WOW days. Look for me as Kheel FleshHarrower on the North American Server

    See you tonight fellas. :)

    Edit: There doesn't seem to be any info on whether a non disclosure agreement is in place for CBT1. Maybe when the game launches I'll take a look at their ToS.

    There are some unusual comments on the sf forums from their community manager regarding permissions to stream on twitch/youtube, but nothing that actually resembles a blanket NDA.

    NDAs are typically crystal clear in print, so there can be no confusion under reasonable circumstances.

    Yea that's just streaming guidelines. A NDA is something you agree upon in writing which includes withholding release of details of the game testing, quality and anything deemed to be sensitive at the time of agreement.

    That wording by their community manager implies that if you're not streaming content directly to a content provider like Twitch / Youtube, then anyone can talk about the closed beta anywhere.

    Will try to get confirmation when the beta starts. They had a strict NDA for the US closed technical test from December, but at the same time ran the Russian closed beta without NDA. It's all rather confusing at this stage.
