InnoGames have just announced that the Kartuga closed beta event has already attracted over 100,000 registered players. The company have said that they are "overwhelmed" by the positive response from players after 100,000 people registered for the game within days of the closed beta event launch. Responding to such a welcome reception the developers summarized their feelings in a developer letter expressing their thanks to the player base.
Players have already accumulated 1.76 million minutes of game play, equivalent to 3.3 years. The intense seafaring battles have seen over 30 million cannonballs hit the bottom of the ocean, a pollution issue that is sure to cause some damage to the ocean life of Kartuga.
"No level of internal testing can replace insights of players actually experiencing your game for the first time." says Product Manager Florian Supa. "And we are proud of the players' enthusiastic response to the unique formula that is Kartuga. Nonetheless, we got lots of player feedback on how to improve the game. The update we did last week aimed at a more stable experience and fairer PvP." In the upcoming weeks, the team plans to implement an improved chat window as well as ranking, and rework balancing for PvP and overall progression in order to ensure long-term motivation.
Currently closed beta keys are being handed out on a lottery basis for all users who have registered on the official website. A number of popular media outlets are also housing free giveaways.
