    Default Beta

    I've beta'd both Dungeons and Dragons Online and Aion.
    I'd consider myself helpful and somewhat technical with knowledge, (collision detection, understanding minor programming, etc.)
    I'd hope that everyone else that's beta'ing it can at least help out the devs.
    I'm super excited for this game and will play it more than anything else, ha.

    Default bug reports posting to a beta board

    It took so long to get back to this - here is what I was thinking:
    when you make an ingame report-
    Select - item/zone/npc/quest etc.
    Select - input item name/npc (you can have it auto fill with zone or npc if you are targeting it)
    input field - summary of issue
    input field - detailed description

    Then you have it post to the beta board based on the first 2 fields it consolidate the post to the proper topic/discussion thread.

    A lot of food for thought in this thread. I was looking for system specs and have not found them yet. Can someone point me to the page?

    Thank you.

    Don't worry that you couldn't find it, nothing has been said yet, other than Scott is playing it on a 5 year old comp, which was admittedly top of the range back then, but that gives you an indication.
    If you say plz instead of please, I say no because it's shorter than yes.

    I have a problem with that because a person like me I have never gotten in a mmo beta at all.But in any mmo I report everything I see that does glitch or something that looks wrong , mechanic that may need fixed because something is wrong.There is people who can help who just never get that beta key.

    DONT:

    Unlock all content in beta. Wouldn't like to experience the whole game in the beta, nothing else to get worked up about in the live.
    Let players reach max level. Keep at least the last 30-50% of the game locked in betas. There are always employees to test that.
    Agree with both of them! And like Europe has already stated: DO consider me as a candidate for beta!
