    That's not true. I've seen a few (I know Mex likes to run around TB in it). But it's really not a big deal. Sure, it sucks when devs play favorites (though if it was for feedback/testing new content, it's hardly playing favorites), but it happens. Nothing you can do about it.

    To Solaura, You're annoyed that certain people are being awarded the mount for something other than the achievement it comes from, yet you're asking to be one of those people that annoys you.

    I couldn't give two monkeys about the mount.

    What I do care is about being heard and this is what is discouraging about this. Its the fact that it is being openly shown that there are a select few who are unknown to most that are given much more attention when providing feedback than others who are just as capable. The most frustrating part about this is also how it is mostly done in private mediums.

    I don't test for rewards, I test to give feedback on the stuff I will spend hours playing and my question is, what do I have to do to actually be listened to?

    I was also a part of the group testing the new 5man. Where's my mount? Or is it for Apoth/Trinity members only?

    Spoiler!

    I didn't realize mounts that no one has obtained yet were being given out, especially since I never got anything for the many many hours I've put into pts in the past.

    So wheres the sign up sheet? I'll test all day for you if P.U.M.P.K.I.N.S are being handed out.


    P.S. I'm unemployed, I seriously could test all day

    So you are complaining about a mount, which is only obtainable by getting Conqueror: Tyrant's Forge, being given to a member of a guild (probably one of 5 guilds) which can actually obtain such an achievement for spending countless hours on PTS test stuff, writing guides?

    Meanwhile you build dimensions?

    I think she has two points, both of which are valid.

    1) Don't play favorites. If you're going to reward testing, say it upfront and be consistent in rewarding testers.Give everyone the opportunity to earn the same reward. Don't try to argue "if you tested at the same time you would have gotten the same reward", Sedvick already shot that one down.

    2) Give reasonable rewards. Unique titles, sure. Some amount of credits, sure. A mount that has been otherwise obtained, sure. Patron passes, sure.

    Conquerer mounts? Not reasonable. Gear from current tier content? Not reasonable. Max loyalty? Not reasonable. Some boost (exp/token/whatever) that stacks with other boosts, which is otherwise unobtainable? Not reasonable.

    Wilds pack? Would seem excessive, but maybe for catching/reporting a major bug. But at least this is otherwise obtainable.

    Rift devs playing favorites shouldn't be a surprise to anyone by now. I do agree with ya op but hey it is what it is sadly.
