    Podcat, just two questions... why would you need my address for this? Or my real name and age for that matter?

    Presumably because there will be a non-disclosure agreement.

    We need to send papers for you to sign. stuff like non-disclosure agreements etc.

    Also, we cant really be sending unreleased games to just anyone, we need some safeguards so we can find and destroy you if you start leaking this on torrent sites :P

    EDIT: Some more explanation. We do give beta access very early. Basically you will be alpha testers, so you arent getting a finished game to test. Usually when you enter about 60% of features are done or such and it gets updated weekly. This is another reason we are quite picky for the initial betas.

    I would love to be a part of this but i do have a few questions how online is this testing process?

    I have done some beta testing before is it Online Based beta testing or is it build upload based and then players go singleplayer beta testing?

    I really want to help Paradox here but i just want to make sure that i am more of a help than a problem because my connection is not the most stable one.

    I signed up, though i don't think I'll get in because I have no testing experience nor any bug reporting history behind me

    Still, I'm hoping for a seat.

    Pod... alpha testing? Thought you were meant to release TFH late(er) this year? This would imply to me that you'd have to have lots of stuff done an reached beta stage soon-ish...

    (I may be too inquisitive for beta testing :-P )

    It's technically alpha since all the features aren't in, but then it's an expansion so you have everything from FTM + <new TFH stuff that is in>...

    Sure, I'd stick that kind of info into the "why would you be an exceptional beta" box.

    I signed up but was unaware of some of my computer specifics. My computer runs games just fine, I'm not the most tech savvy person, but I know Hearts of Iron III and love to play it. Feel that I could definitely be a help in beta testing the new expansion as I have a lot of time free.

    Sounds awesome, the rewards must surely be great for these beta guys!
    Montgomery to Colonial secretary Oliver Lyttelton 23 December 1951:

    “Dear Lyttelton, Malaya
    We must have a plan. Secondly we must have a man.
    When we have a plan and a man, we shall succeed: otherwise not.
    Yours sincerely , Montgomery (F.M.)”

    Lyttelton in his memoirs: “I may, perhaps without undue conceit, say that this had occurred to me”.
