Postby cc_Tadaaah » Wed Apr 27, 2016 10:00 am

Hi ShopKeepers!

  • We ask for your cooperation in not sharing any Beta feature prior to release. If you do so without strict permission (from Tadaaah), you may be removed from the Beta program and will not be considered for future beta testing.
  • This is beta testing. There will bugs; lots of bugs. When reporting, please be courteous and use the format that will be provided.
  • As initial contact will be via email, players under the age of 14 may not participate.
  • Account progress (for beta feature such as leaderboards) will be wipes after the beta testing period. Should you choose to spend gems; we will not be issuing refunds for beta testing.

do you not load beta server accounts with x amount of gems so they can ensure gem features function correctly?

edit: nvm looks like accounts are just flagged on live or something.

I'm not saying anything, because I'm literally not part of this yet, but I just read in World Chat that we'll be using our existing accounts for Beta Testing. I think this means a very specific thing. Can you elaborate on what is actually going to happen, or are we going to be thrown in front of an army of Mantis Men and fend for ourselves?

EDIT: As it may cause problems. Accounts linked to iOS will not be considered for Beta.

To the reset: Progress for the that specific feature will be wiped from the account. The rest of your account will be the same.

It sounds like you'll do the beta testing for PvP and possible other completely new features (at least the "wipe" comments seem to suggest the testing doesn't really interact with the rest of the game much (if raids had been beta tested by players, I guess it would have for ex. been run with blank or dummy milestones, so the only interaction would have then been castle boost costs and a few heroes occupied by raid test instead of normal quests)).

Thumbs up. Players should probably be able to find some loopholes in new features that devs might overlook.

I guess "forum ID"s can be used to set up a private sub-forum for beta participants to discuss the beta? (The forum software allows to set up such sub-forums that are members-only and don't show up in "active topics", right?)
as of 2016-09-11: Player level: 44, City: Eolythes, Blueprints: 517, Mastered: 419, Crafted: 78.61K
(except for tier 1 and some tier 2 artifacts mostly running my shop/gearing self sufficient)

Yes, forum could be used to make a closed beta section for open discussion.
