In the beta test application it says
Ready to sign NDA?
What does NDA stand for ?
Non-Disclosure Agreement, basically you won't say anything about the game nor shown it before the devs tell you that you can.
It is normal for a developer to ask for same.
Oh, yes, completely. It stands for, "No Deathmatch Allowed" and means that people who like playing base building games, instead of gloriously magnificent pitched battles, are not allowed in the beta test. People who argue about how long "peace time" should last and whether they are allowed to sail about in a balloon to view the entire map are, on the whole, poor testers. Instead they are looking for people who enjoy and appreciate a certain shade of grass, can comment on vegetation and ruminate on topography... They are seeking a certain connoisseur!
Or, it means, that they want people who are willing to do the job they ask rather than using the beta as an excuse to reveal everything about the game...
I jest, with tongue in cheek, of course...
I am afraid I cannot agree sir. It actually means "No Dudes Agreement". It is all part of a huge scheme where GSC are asking you if you are ready to lie and sign that you are a gal so that they can sell their game as a success in the female gaming market. With the rising waves of female gamers it is now a huge accomplishment having a game that appeals to gals. They need to provide statistics with a high percentage of females so that they can break with the overwhelming majority of dudes playing RTS games. Once you sign the No Dudes Agreement (NDA) everyone will acknowledge that they are in fact a female and that nobody that plays the game is a dude. This will not only make the game unique in the RTS market but it will also attract a huge amount of male gamers that are looking for games with high percentage of females.
It is the perfect marketing strategy that will make Cossacks 3 the most played RTS game in the world. You all doubted their marketing abilities because you were never expecting a No Dudes Agreement, it is simply genius. I retract everything I said about their marketing practices. Trust me, this is legitimate information. I obtained this information form a secret rouge website called Cossackleaks ran by condor_fly.
In fact it can also be read as "No Date Announced", once you agree to sign this you can't ask anything related to the schedule of Cossacks 3 be it updates, release or Beta test. This way GSC will always be on time.
I think its typo and there should be NBA..... like if you are ready to sign contract for one season
Or NDAA and it allows them to drone your house
NDA stands for Nine Dinosaurs Allocated. Choose the raptors, they are the Hussars of the Saurians.
