I can't promise any compensation like leaving you some fleets, blueprints and etc. However, we are discussing another way of doing good things to pre-Alpha testers - and if there will be some, we will tell about it before steam early access ;)[/quote]
I have an idea to help pre-alpha testers if all the progress gets wiped. Start them off with all the other starter things that people who are new get but give the PAT (pre alpha testers xD) little boosts so that their fleets might be a higher lvl or in discovery mode they can get more ships or just an igc booster overall (I wouldn't mind that :) ). Also depending on the amount of the PAT and the amount of new players when the game releases you could give us PATs a free Premium Account.
