A note for future generations of beta testersBy: tehgeek1017 posted at Oct 27, 2010 4:47 pm
The way I look at this beta is, that this is not a REAL beta test.
A beta test consists of people who are chosen because of their rig, may it be super powerful (so they have people testing at max graphic) and weak (so they can find a definite minimum requirement). People who have beta tested before are great for such things also. Applying for a beta test should be like applying for a job. If you meet the requirements the company is looking for, then you will be accepted. If not, then you will have to try again and wait until that spot as a tester is open again.
A number of companies are making this same mistake Bioware for example. SWTOR beta testers were chosen at random (even though you filled out a little survey). Bioware... one of the biggest companies in gaming even did this. EA did the something with Battlefield Heroes where the people that got into beta were chosen at random instead.
So people who are upset that they did not get in, we just need to wait. If PWE decided that they want to make a garbage beta test with random people who are not going to help improve the game let them. Then when it fails because it is bug ridden and broken they will just loose money and we can hope... we can hope that this will help them learn.
(Note I posted this on the Forsaken World Forums which is why it may sounds a bit off.)
