Sure, it’s unfair for some people but I been a beta tester since early 2012 and been in all major areas that came out. Closed beta is far more different than open. That’s why I hate the idea of open beta because it makes you feel like you just playing the same game. Last beta was horrible as pointed out because everyone was just opening chests instead of testing. Sadly a lot of people join for the experience instead of actual help and improvement to the game. But we all don’t have to agree on this. It was a smart thing to do by VR because a lot of big games keep it closed off from the public until the release because selecting people often lead to leaks.
Every beta test done will have leaks no matter who they choose, if I know someone in a beta test no matter the world I can gain that information quickly as I know the stats and gear which will be dropped from the new "celestial" type boss, also I wouldnt call it an amazing decision, theyre going with people that are active on the forums and are high ranked on the forums along with those they know/have talked to in game and know on line etc and from how you are speaking im sure youre in the closed beta which is why youre calling it an "amazing decision" just an extra biased comment. I can agree that some people join for the experience but there are also people who join to contribute and put in the effort, dont see why they should get screwed over bc of the others that did nothing in the last beta as im sure theres some people in the current beta who arent putting in the work also.
Actually I am not in the current beta. I used to be in all betas whenever OTM was ruling the Lands. But whenever OTM clan was damaged I kinda dropped my weopons and focused on life because of the type of connection I had with them. While I sure been in all the betas Since VR took over I can promise that no I am not in the current closed beta. I just believe that we as players shouldn’t be telling a company how to do their job because we don’t see the long term vision of the game. We only see what they tell us and in this case what someone told you guys whenever they shouldn’t have. Cheers,
I mean thats understandable and I wouldnt say that in my pov id be telling VR how to run their company or their betas but im sure that with you being an old player and being in the betas it would feel a bit trashy not having the opportunity to get into the current beta when in the past otm allowed people to apply and by all means when I say apply to a closed beta they could make those who want to join to write out the reason why they want to join and wjst they will do when theyre in there, if VR see ppl doing nothing and not logging they could cancel their inv to the beta. With me coming back to the game around 3months or so ago I dont really know VR or anyone in their team so I am still wary of them and wonder if they can get the job done but thats just bc im a die hard gamer at heart and have played this game sibce it started and dont want to see it fall, plus I knew a lot of the otm staff and had a good connection with them so sucks to see things change in that perspective but if VR can do a better job then thats what matters.
Ps i wasnt gere for otms last year in charge but i saw that the events dried up, new content dried up etc which was the reason for my break so I know it went downhill.
