I can't wait until the devs realize that the marketing division of SOE has gotten a bunch of people not interested in testing into their closed beta!

I think you may be more cynical than myself or TB...

Thats not easy.

It will give us vets easier targets to kill to test all the weapons!

Turns out those people are just as valuable to testing the game as the "seasoned pros", whether or not they file a lick of feedback.

Eh, I find it hard to believe that the average person on twitter going "hey lol i hurd ofdis game gief me key!" is going to be more likely to test it than a veteran of the game. Most of them just want to play it, and while that's true of me also, I want to help make the game something I want to play via feedback and finding game breaking exploits (IE multiple accounts = no vehicle CD) that needs to be fixed.

How do people who give 0 feedback during closed beta contribute?

This. And the more people in, the better they can see how well it handles xxxxx number of people.

Big deal...

Cheers,

Exactly that. They are providing network and server load, being targets, and seeing a whole class of things you won't, because they care about bullshit you don't.

Network and server load are open beta concerns, according to Higby. Closed beta is for balance and systems.

And they have plenty of vets, I don't see how they need others to test server load.

I do not care to assume what SoE cares about in what part of their testing process.

Someone on twitter mentioned, that veterans and those with PC Gamer vip access key get first. Keys given on twitter, facebook and at E3 aren't top priority. It was Danicia or RadarX who mentioned this, I don't remember who exactly.

They do not have priority access! Vets/PC Gamer do! [Danicia]

Ahh, cool.

Having just vets in closed beta is a terrible idea. I've seen a lot of people on this forum who basically want PS1 in a shiny new shell and new people to populate it. Having new players come in to do balancing work will help the game evolve into a new force entirely, and having the vets in during the process will help ensure that the game never forgets its roots in PS1.

Having a remake of PS1 wouldn't be ideal, so having the new guys in on closed beta for balancing is, in my opinion, a very good thing.

That's what the Magazines were for.

Anyhow, now that the FB/Twitter/E3 ones aren't priority, I'm fine.

You know what I bet? I bet the large development team with years of experience know better how to go about this that half the halfbrain comments posted here. Its a flipping game folks, relax. They know what they are doing, your bitching just makes you look like a 12 year old who isnt getting his icecream before dinner.
