    Default 20 Man Raid Testing Guilds Wanted!

    We’re looking for guilds to volunteer to help us test content for the next raid release!
    For guilds interested in helping test, we ask that one of your members post the following information. Please don't double up on applications, it'll make everything harder to sort through!

    APPLICATION TO TEST
    • Guild Name
    • Guild Representative who will serve as the point of contact
    • What times are you available to be scheduled for testing? *Please include time zone*
    • Are you sure you can field 20 players for designer assisted testing on a scheduled night?
    • How much of the current content have you completed?
    • What is your Teamspeak / Vent / etc voice chat device? (required) *DO NOT* Post your address. Please PM it to Dev_Anony.

    We'll sort through these applications and select a number of guilds to help us out based on a variety of criteria including current progress and specific availability. We wish we could work with all of you, but the focus of testing is to get the best feedback at a time that best enables us to make appropriate changes before it's released live.

    Thanks in advance,

    I wonder if there is any game currently that uses an internal raid team to test stuff

    Thanks for the journey RIFT - It's been fun

    Well, I'm pretty sure that Anony has a very, very, very long list of various tss', mumbles and other random coms, from guilds all around. And Trion for some reason does prefer that you don't post comm info, even if its mostly commonly known on your cluster and most guild use permissions to only allow randoms into pug channel.

    P.S. Anony owns our TS - would sound better, but thats just my opinion. :3

    I like well tuned, non buggy content i can enjoy with my friends. If that means surrendering a few world firsts to the best raid guilds in the game then fair enough. We should be thankful people want to put their own time into testing raids to ensure the rest of us have a more pleasurable time.

    And they test it in the best gear with the best players, then tune it around their tests.

    Then wonder why only 2% of the player base is clearing their raids.

    HK could be cleared in expert gear atm if it had the hit.

    So you say that other 98% of the raiders are bad?

    Seriously... Another person that has no idea how testing actually works...

    It will hardly be tuned with the best gear. I would imagine full tier 2 set will be provided to all. Also, go read Apotheosys's notes on iGP. Many times they note that things are still overtuned for the vast majority and at it's current setting iot will not be cleared by many people. iGP was tuned brilliantly IMO. Hard enough to provide that challenge intially and make people play properly but not so hard it would cause epic rage quits. I hope the tier 3 stuff will be the same

    We test with our live gear, wich is basically BiS gear.
