View Full Version : For Those of Us Who Tested the Beta....

I was just talking with ItISLupus about how those of us who tested the beta should get something for the time we put in. Most common thing is usually something for your avatar, like a beta tester's shirt. Another idea I had was some unique in-game armor, but Lupus said no on that because part of the community would whine about it not being godlike and the other half would whine if it was godlike. Then i thought, what about a unique in-game title, like "Traveler of the old world". I thought it was a clever reference to the older code used in the beta. Lupus suggested "Experimental Ego", or something along those lines.

So what do you think would be cool to get?

Just a reminder that there have been no mentions of any sort of bonus for beta testing. This thread is purely for speculation and discussion.

I guess I'd be happy just to get the GAME on the launch date. Ya know, because of my preorder 'n all. But that ain't gonna happen, 'cause the retailer I preordered from isn't going to even ship it until tomorrow, maybe. And some people who ordered fancy-smancy copies won't get them for almost two more weeks.

This is too bad, because this game NEEDS the servers online to be accessible, so it would have been fine for everyone to have a retail copy in hand prior to April 2nd. Oh well.

I said the same thing. but if we were to get anything. a title would be sufficient. Anything more and people would get bent out of shape

We got to see an early version of the game. That's our reward.. and also that fuzzy feeling of perhaps contributing (although likely any feedback you gave had already been fed back) a tiny bit, if only for server stress testing. I wouldn't be against Alpha testers getting a title or unique item of clothing or something. And no, I'm not an Alpha tester.

Thats the fault of the retailer's not Trion's. I'm sure that if Trion could control it then they would.

Are you serious? You think you "deserve" something for Trion letting you play a bit of their game early?!?!?!?

And btw, you did get something... You got to PLAY a GREAT video GAME before it was released!!!! Jeeze come on people....

Yeah, that's why I said the RETAILER won't ship it until tomorrow. Didn't say anything About Trion in that post, did I? I posted in this thread to say I didn't want anything for playing the beta, except the retail game on the street date. I've received plenty of games at launch, on time in the past.

what about a unique in-game title .... Lupus suggested "Experimental Ego", or something along those lines.

"EgoManiac" is my suggestion.

Don't remind me of how awful the xbox beta was..

Some of the worst mechanics, bugs, etc, in a game I've ever seen. Hell, since the version was so much older then the beta for PS3/PC, they should've called it an xbox alpha version.

All beta testers got the play the a little bit of the game before it actually launched. Not many devs give you the opportunity before launch to play test their games. Just be thankful there was a beta at all. I am :)

There is some precedent for beta testers to get things. For instance with League of Legends a bunch of my friends were in the beta and they got some skins that still have never been offered. I think things like that would be great for Defiance.
