Re: 24/7 Beta or "Weekends"?


With Planetside being so out of the ordinary, who's to say which model they'll use, but I feel like a 24/7 model would make sense for PS2. I feel like weekends are often done to keep people from blowing through the content and tiring of the game before release. Since Planetside has no real content other than the players, it would really only serve to allow players more time to understand the game and provide informed feedback.

Plus, I work weekends and I wouldn't be able to play. Seriously, don't do this to me.

Re: 24/7 Beta or "Weekends"?


I'm hoping for a 24/7 beta as I'm working alot and only get time at night. I think for a game of this size it would be better to hold a 24/7 test rather than a weekend one. It is ok to hold weekend teensy for other mmo's bu I think the scale of this will need a good test. Weekends arnt long enough IMO

Looks like most people are treating the beta as early access instead of what it is meant for. Trying to break the game.

High player-counts aren't the only thing that crashes servers.

When you have high likelihoods of server crashes, you don't switch to 24/7 testing. 24/7 testing means that you have to have staff on-hand 24/7, including staff that's capable of making code changes.

Re: 24/7 Beta or "Weekends"?


For all of you people saying that they need to test their servers, that's the exact point of the technical test, which should be starting today/tomorrow. The tech test slowly adds more people in to test the functionality/stability of the servers.

I'd assume the tech test to be scheduled play times, whereas the closed/open beta will be 24/7.

In case you skipped over Sephirex's post:

https://twitter.com/PS_TRay/status/215094101106896897

You're going to see a combination. 24/7 will happen eventually but like they said, they're going to direct it early on. Since it is such a big world, they are going to want to narrow us down to specific spots and situations to break things. This isn't a 'early access'. This is break our game so we can make sure it's not broken on release.

The question be answered...moving on...

As has been mentioned, Beta will not begin 24/7 due to the regular updates happening to the game. Once we have a large sampling of folks, you can be certain it will be up most of the time.

Well, as long as they eventually make it a 24/7 thing then I guess I'll be happy.
