Call me n00b but when was the option to apply for Defcon, i've been checking out the forums for the last couple of weeks looking for a chance to be involved. Been really busy this week (damn bloody coursework) then I check out today and they've already been chosen. Can anyone inform me how i missed it? (and i am sooooooooo jealous)

For some reason, it was on the main Introversion News section of the forums...

  • random selection?
  • the fact that it didn't choose you?
  • yourself?
  • this post?
  • these forums?
  • us?
  • everyone?

As far as I'm aware, everyone who came up on the list after random selection is a beta tester.

He was more then likely kidding. Icepick can be harsh online at times, but he is not an asshole.

True. There was quite a large number of total applicants anyway, so the odds would of been worse for you to get in even if you had applied.

yes but surely he would have seen it, so it wouldn't matter to him that his chances were less, just that he was given the oppertunity the first time around. Same thing happened to me, but then again I haven't been picked for the second round of them so I can hardly complain anymore.

But that said, all it matters to Introversion is that it gets tested, and if they can get the applicants without advertising on the forum then they arn't going to bother advertising something which is already heavily oversubscribed.
