I found 387,721 bugs when I beta tested Ultima Online. I reported all of them at least three times.

You name it, I beta tested it. . . except for DFO.

I win. Where is my beta key?

Being a fat-ass, I usually do load testing.

Previous games beta tested do not make one any more qualified than the next guy. Any jackass can submit a beta application.

getting selected for a Beta doesnt make you more qualified but experience actually testing them does.

LOL, I told them how much they sucked, regularly( in a constructive, bug reporting way :))

My beta testing style is unique. I just run around doing stupid things. I probably hold the record for getting stuck/falling through graphics, or reaching areas that I'm not supposed to (and thus getting stuck that way).

Darkfall probably doesn't care about that, since the gameplay/map is so open. But that won't stop me from reaching areas not accessible to most players and exploiting the shit out of it.

EDIT: And by exploiting it, I mean exploiting it until they fix it (I really do report these things, I just have fun with them while they are still on the table).

I would typically do this from a pve aspect of trying to level faster than the dev's intended by perching and aeing whole camps or such, but in DF that would be as necesary since there is no "XP"

Perhaps we can figure out how to exploit terrain to grind skill points with no risk :)...

Only real beta testers can help fix this kind of thing, bots don't think so creatively :)

I beta tested your mum

Salaman

Asheron's Call 2
Earth and Beyond
Star Wars Galaxies
Planetside
Saga of Ryzom
EVE online
Mythos

I'm only counting closed betas since any clown with a fileplanet subscription can do open betas.

As for style, I don't care about being uber and worrying about what people say is good or what sucks and just pick skills/items that sound cool to me based on the in game description and then report on how they could be improved.

I would say that anyone who beta tested other games expecially AoC, WoW, Warhammer should never be allowed to test Darkfall. Because all the above mentioned games are absolute shit in finished mode.

I've never beta tested any games. However, as an avid script kiddie, I'd love to test their ability to ban me when I start using chams, maphax, trainers, and my trusty pindlebot.

Umm that would probably the best advertisment for why not to let you near the game :)

It's really smart to warn them before you are in beta....

I beta tested Shadowbane for a few years, found a bug that I like to call sb.exe , it was extremely rare..and only really really good betatesters could find it. It was almost impossible to recreate, so we left it in there.

Yes it was extremely rare , I might have only seen that one 2 or 3 times in an entire evening of play!
