it seems that USA players can't play the beta, I have opened ports 443,43594,43595, I can player Rs all day long but can't play the beta, I even by passed my router, I can asked my isp if he has it blocked but he knows I do gaming and what games not to block.
I liked the beta I love the new Mining and Smithing, I still remember back over 10years ago when it would take around 7 months to get 99 mining and how the pick head would fly off your pickaxe. I love how the rocks are now no one can run up and take your ore.
I did kill some dragons, I like how you replaced the ores and bars.
I found a bug though with over rides.
When having a override cosmetic item on the pick will not show the right pick only will show the crystal pickaxe, even if you have the same pick in toolbelt and in hands so you could have 2 pickaxe of earth and song and it would still show up as the crystal pickaxe.
I jumped on my noob 2018 acc and I did move some lvls and made a few pickaxes and used them, I used the new auto heater on both accounts it seems to work good for the little a knew about it.
I like all the new things that was added, gem rocks too
The ore boxes and ore bank are very nice!
Anyway I loved it and can't wait for it to come live!
Thank you for having the beta so we could play it and test it out.
