As Torin said, the objective of the Beta is not for us to have fun, as weird as that may sound, bear with me a moment.

The Objective of the Beta is to make sure the game is as fun as possible when released, the destinction is subtle.

A Beta tester's job consists of the following:
Play through it normally, a lot, to get a feel for the game and give feedback on it.
Play through the game intentionaly trying to systemically break the game. For example, completely focus on the lamest strategy you can imagine, try to exploit and grief as much as possible, and report anything along those lines you've found works and should not be viable in the release.
Try to technically break the game, find ways to cheat in multiplayer, and to exploit glitches, then report those as well.

Those three objectives are all important matters into making sure the game is fun, fun is like the meta objective of the Beta.
If the Beta is fun and working as intended, tell them that too, that's a sign they've got it right.

Remember, that Beta is Beta, it is not the final product, it's a chance for many of us, to help contribute to the game, and make it as polished and enjoyable as possible for the release version.

Because it's the original, the mighiest of the figurines.

One Michael to rule them all, One Michael to find them, One Michael to bring them all, And in the darkness bind them!

... I seem to be in a silly mood today.

There will be no beta tomorrow, and many people will be upset. We are still missing the reputation update on the home page.

I believe that's why the Q&A has not been released yet, so that we get something on the 20th.

Nope, I just haven't had a chance to finalise it in the past few days. Sorry.

If they need some testing on campaign then they'll put it in the beta.


It's possible they just want testing on general gameplay. It's possible they don't want to release the entire campaign to a huge number of hardcore fans long before release. Keeping spoilers from getting out would be nearly impossible.

Torrin, if I had thought what I was saying was silly I would not have said it. I would appreciate it if you would not be so hostile over such a small issue. It's really not worth it.

I wasn't hostile. I just thought that you know too that beta testing is not something like "hey developer guys, please don't put this function in the beta because I really don't want to test it!" but it's something like "hey tester guys, please, test those functions that we implemented in the beta test build!".
It seems that I made a mistake, you really thought that the first situation is the normal one. Sorry about that.

The one who was "hostile" (without any reason) is Dark-Whisperer because hi indulged in personalities, but it doesn't bother me.
