Closed Beta Test Information
In this testing phase, players will be testing the server load capacity for the matchmaking system. Previously, the team mentioned that before creating more development progress with the game itself, they wanted to make sure that the matchmaking system was perfected.
With this test selecting an extremely small amount of users, only 15,000 people will be chosen to participate. It will also require the users to be residents of Japan in order to play. The application period will be open from October 12, 2020 (Monday) until October 26, 2020 (Monday) 11:00 JST. The test will begin on November 7, 2020 (Saturday) from 19:00 JST until 21:59 JST. Should the amount of applicants exceed 15,000 users, a lottery will be held at random to receive access. Users will also be allowed to stream the game and share screenshots with others.
To note, your characters will start at Level 25 with premade items. This may be subject to change if the developers decide to start at a different level. Additionally, there was no information provided about previous testers receiving access to this test without registration. Therefore, to those who tested BLUE PROTOCOL previously, please make sure to apply.
