@ZeroFoxGiven Well, I'm not from China but...
Now, applying for the Autumn test won't work anymore. Hopefully next one will be open beta.
@haukinyau0 @Y100Grand bruh AFAIK android emulators are locked out, at least for this test.
Game seems pretty well made, with lots of attention to detail. I have noticed a few bugs, and content-wise, it's pretty close to a releasable iteration.
Runs smooth most of the time, even on an SD800 powered old-ish android device. On the LG G5 it's smooth as butter on max graphic settings and quad HD resolution. Only gripe is server lag so far, but they said they were stress-testing the servers through the beta ( basically, more players per servers than it's supposed to hold).
1200 players got the code through task/rewards system (earn "zeny" through being active in the community forums and stuff), 5000 were supposed to get codes at random, but they actually gave out 8000. 100K players applied for this closed beta through TapTap, and the number of applications on the website is undisclosed, but presumably even higher.
Follow "Clo RO" on youtube, he's constantly posting updates about the game and tests. He also helped me quite a bit and added me to his Intl guild in there, so I can get some help whenever it's needed, but the game's pretty intuitive.
Your other option is using google translate through the camera function from another device, it's saved me quite a few times.
