This.

The dev team will need to do what works best for them. If that means not being able to play all the time, so be it.

How long is the wait expected to be between closed beta and open beta (assuming no major problems)?

It's generally quite an ugly thread, that devolves into pointless name calling, and listings of past debts.

This is a perfect opportunity for consistency, think of the number of devs who would have to stay nursing servers and being able to solve problems in a 24/7 beta model. Think about how this will slow down the actual release of the game with so many of the team taken off the work they need to be doing, so that they can sit there at 4:00am PDT in case the Euro crew break something.

Stop being selfish, if you/we can't make a short test window than thats Real Life. 24/7 off the bat won't work and will actually slow down the release of the game due to manpower constraints.

The devs keep stepping up to be cool to the PS community, and this is an opportunity for us to be cool as well.

Your post makes no sense, just quietly. You start off sounding like an Aussie and finish sounding like a anti-australian jewish american.

He's just pointing out the irony of people not wanting to inconvenience the devs for others, but being perfectly willing to inconvenience them for themselves.

And Jewish American? How did you come up with that gem?

Agree, I dont see 24/7 REalistic for the Start of the Beta, maybe in later Phases of the Beta.

Set times/weekends - more concentrated havoc on the servers/in game world to break stuff. 24/7 just seems irrational to the devs working hard to fix what we're supposed to break during said beta.
