I was hoping he would elaborate so I could figure if bull or not.

Honestly, I don't give a crap if anyone else got into tech test.... Not everyone is going to get in and telling everyone here who hasn't gotten in just brings us down.... We all know the tech test is going on and some are getting invited.... So, no need to advertise that you did....

EDIT: And a violation of the PSU NDA! You posts will be deleted just like the ones that were deleted that I made this post about....

Yes. Why? Because it means I can report those bugs and help make the game better for release. It will help me to appreciate the game more later.

Do you really want your first experience of Planetside 2 to be this way?

Now those of us who understand it's not a game at the moment but a project and SOE is attempting to fix it/polish it, those guys know that they aren't going to get the game we have all waited for, and waited for it for a long time. Those types are honestly going to be in the game, testing it and doing what is needed in small confined spaces to test the game. Sure, they get to see the Forgelight engine first hand, but they are sacrificing the memory and the nostalgia of it all.

To the technical testers, I am glad you got in and I am sure you are hyped about it and you get to experience PS2 in no other way any of us could, but you also have the responsibilty and the actual duty of giving feedback to make the REST of us enjoy the game in terms of performance.

Beta will be based on gameplay, but this test is based on how it runs on that specific build per machine.

I am seriously running out of "chill the fuck out" speeches, but guys, Know that SOE is and has been on here for a damn long time and they are just as ready to let us into the game. Let's welcome them with open arms when we can, let's keep being that community that told bitches to fuck off when they needed to be told to fuck off and let's continue being us, the guys who have waited for-fucking-ever for ps2.

I've noticed the hostility and the anxiety of everyone over the past few days, don't let it get control of you. This bond we have here, this glue we have, (pun intended) is what makes PS2's community different and amazing from the others.

I completely agree

Re: Planetside 2 beta plans


While Mr. Nukem has a point in the whole "nostalgia" thing, this misconception really needs to be dispelled: even the tech test is mostly for play. SOE can't honestly expect everyone getting in to know very much about PC's.

When a developer brings in external testers, they handle the brunt of the problem solving through indirect information gathering. All they can really ask of the players without requiring they have a degree in IT is what they were doing when the problem occurred. They didn't hand pick experienced testers that have gone through real beta testing phases - SOE hand picked system specs.

In short: external testing has to be built on the concept that the testers are about as intelligent as a brick when it comes to how PC's work. It's about stress testing and balance testing for the most part, not hunting down bugs (real, hired testers find most of those.)

I can't say people are exactly out of line for being upset they didn't get an invite (everyone wants to play,) as I can't say the current or future testing phases are going to be expecting professional testers professionally testing in professional ways. Drawing from the masses, SOE simply shouldn't expect that kind of quality of tester from more than a handful in a thousand.

SOE expects us to play, and play hard, but likely within set guidelines so they can gather data on specifics, like weapons balance.

Re: Planetside 2 beta plans


Those playing now get to face off against the devs and have the fun of finding and using extremely overpowered weapons and tactics since the game is not yet balanced. I would trade a few bugs for that.

I've been in many beta tests. I treat them as periods of pre-release practice. If I find a bug, I will report it. But I won't go out of my way to find them.

Planetside 2's beta is no exception. So, please, don't go work yourself to liver cancer because other people aren't as informed about nomenclature or are as serious about a game's development process as you are.

Live and let live, amirite?

I don't get why people get so upset when others make comments on what kind of fun they want to have on beta. Yes some of them don't get that it's not supposed to be a demo, but some do. Complaining about it makes no difference at all.

Those who know what beta is still want to have fun while in there and they want to share their expectations in forums. Also, people who never heard of what a beta is are born every day and they will always show up and get picked to participate, no ammount of posts about how it's a tragedy that they get in while serious testers don't will change that... their presence still makes a difference, and they sometimes become better testers after getting into their first beta.

So in short: why so serious? It's not worth it to get upset about it.

Re: Planetside 2 beta plans


ahahaha if u think only serious people should get into beta then ur WRONG. Devs know this. Usually the leeches or people who want in just for the fun are, welcomed. Because a very small portion of people will actually report. While the rest will just stress test the server and provide bodies for people who really are testing.

Ive been in a few betas. Most recently, in Firefall beta. Alot of people are in FF beta. Most play for fun, a few report every single bug/glitch/exploit. I played for beta testing and fun. But I never had a chance to report anything because it already was reported by many many people. So all I could do was confirm it. I saw people saying x and x should be banned because they were exploiting the shizz out of z. Dude, its beta, we are suppose to break the game.

So if somoene says they want in beta just to play, dont QQ or rage over it. Your just wasting ur health and time.

Not sure what I was trying to get across here
