East Coast of USA: November 10th 2:00am to 5:00am EST

    Man this game is so hard that even log into the beta is difficult lol

    • Ferrick

      the candle boss is too strong

  • dahuuuundge

    Is this test for NA users only? In a way we’re getting segregated from EU and JP players because of this logistics error.

    • Scipio

      Well, there’s nothing about EU or JP players in there, so I’m assuming yeah.

      • Ninastars

        Previously the beta sessions were global I believe. So I think it’s safe to assume it’ll go like usual unless they state otherwise.

  • Marcelo Henrique Chaves

    I wish i could play, but didn’t get and invite code. T.T

    • Kaseladen

      If I could pass mine on, I would :/

    • Luis Ibal

      the code was in the dark souls fb page…

  • Scipio

    In before Bamco screws the pooch again and we’re left in the dark for two hours.


    Seriously though, what were they thinking?

  • Kaseladen

    It’s still 2am-5am, who thought this was a good idea

    • Ninastars

      It’s a server stress test for the developers, so obviously it happens when it’s the working hours in Japan.

      • Kaseladen

        All that stress they’ll get at 2am from people who put in codes before we found out it was 2am.
        All that stress

      • No No

        that’s 3pm though, you’d think they’d start work a little earlier.
