    Lineage 2
    City of Heroes

    Typically my testing style is PVP oriented developing overpowered character templates. This contributes to class balance efforts.

    Beta test RL myself. Alpha was better, the breath nerf fucking sucked. So did hangovers.

    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.

    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
