It depends if other critters can produce metals. In that case is not just viable but also op, since hydrogen can also generate power.

Yeah, I've been intentionally avoiding expansion spoilers so I can go in fresh, but that critter alone actually has me excited, adds a lot of unique potential even if it's difficult to properly use. :D Mind you, I've also done several "green" challenges lately where the only power I use through the entire game is hamster wheel and steam turbines (no burning of any fuel, including Hydrogen, and no algae consumers for oxygen, oxyferns only pretty much), which means any new "natural" source of power makes me think of new possibilities for that build, hahaha.

The diet thing renders this a non-viable. No. Just no. It is, and never will be worth it.

At some point you don't need more ore as I think nothing else consumes metal continuously as an upkeep cost, meanwhile I can imagine wanting more hydrogen either for power or for rockets.

With average volcano you I think you can feed 3-4 of them and starve-ranch the power and Hydrogen. Quite viable IMHO.

Volcano gives refined metal, i believe these critters feeds on normal metal.

Just checked both steam and the status page and I also got in. So indeed it seems the new pool was just selected.

 

EDIT: Ninja'd by JoeW :)

The first 700 players to register have been added in total and emails have been sent to those that have been added. 

 

 

My boyfriend registered 15 minutes after me and he got in :( Did you add some randoms to the mix, or did I get cheated by timestamp somehow..?

Yeah, I figured I registered pretty quickly too, though I guess people are faster on the draw than I expected. :p

We just added the first 600 players to register that haven't already been chosen and emails have been sent to those that have been added. 

verify that it was indeed the first 600?? I and many others had signed up long before there were even any replies to the announcement....meaning that hundreds of people had signed up before there were any replies??!! it's possible but it baffles me

I'm at odds with myself.  Part of me wants to participate in the EA period so I can offer feedback, as I did in the base game.  The other part of me wants to eschew the EA period so I can have a fresh experience when the full DLC is finally released.  What to do?  What to do?

As far i understand we get everything in the EA... It's only alpha that has limited content DLC wise..
