Would you like a chance to join the test? Then we’ll need you to form a team with your friends, and sign up for the alpha test as a team. Why a team? Because to win in Civ World, you’ll need to collaborate with your friends in order to do well in the game and become ruler of the world, so in our early Alpha testing, we’re grouping people together to simulate how the game will work when it’s available to the world at large. In the final game, you’ll be able to sign up individually (although we’ll love it if you invite your friends), but to participate in Closed Alpha, you’ll have to enter as a team. It’s up to you how you organize your testing team. Your team can be anywhere from 5-50 people.
What we’ll need from each team will be a team name and a team captain. Each team member will need to register on our sign-up page www.2kgames.com/civworld/alpha and enter their team name and captain’s name, along with some other information. Teams will receive their acceptance confirmations beginning January 10th.
In any case, it's got to be better than that game pesgores was pimping. What's a good team name? The Deadly Spacemen?
EDIT: I'll probably be barred from playing this myself, judging by the "Please list any and all Game Industry/Company Affiliations (of any type, including but not limited to PC, console, casual/web, social network, or mobile games) and related positions" question in the signup. But we'll see.
