They haven't started any form of testing, thought they're working on releasing the information on tribes due to settlement selection coming "Soon(TM)" so, presumably, the very first pre-alpha stages are coming up within the next couple or few months? But that's just my personal speculation, I'm sure there will be official word in the next month or shortly thereafter (there should be an official post on where they are at in development next month)
Actually, they are in pre-alpha currently.
No, they are in "pre-pre-alpha."
"Pre-pre-alpha" would be pre-development , we are now in development of COE full force , so it's safe to take off the redundant first "pre" and just stick with one . We are in pre-alpha , alpha is hopefully just 4 or so months away but only time will tell .
My hope was that alpha would land somewhere around October - December , but that's just a guess , so until then we are in pre-alpha !!
As much as I see where you are coming from, the Devs, themselves, have listed the things they have described as the "pre-alpha" content (the MUD, the Kingdoms of Elyria, and, I think, the Exposition). We haven't reached those yet.
So, again, while I get where you are coming from, you are, in fact, wrong. As per the Devs themselves.
Almost correct. The "pre-alpha" content is Kingdoms of Elyria and ElyriaMUD, which will both begin to build in-game player driven lore, develop kingdoms and holdings, and test crucial game mechanics and concepts. After these will be the Offline Prologue, which will both introduce players to the game as it will exist in their clients at launch and further test features.
Exposition is pre-launch but not alpha or beta content. During Exposition, Chronicles of Elyria will have all of the content that it will have during launch (with the possible exception of the architecture tool and land management tables - TBC), and is intended for pledge package players to build the world prior to the mainstream launch.
TL;DR: The timeline is pre-pre-alpha (now), Domain Selection, pre-alpha (KoE, ElyriaMUD), Alpha I, Alpha 2, Beta 1, Beta 2, Exposition, Launch. The offline prologue will come some time after Domain Selection and some time before Exposition, to be confirmed.
