I think its dumb ppl call it 'salty' or 'butthurt', that just shows how little u care about the beta testing. Beta testing is to be able to prevent things like 3 nerfs done to Gele and Necro before a year or so later, to improve all of ur gameplay. When the ones in beta are nothing more than forum dwellers who quit the game, u know how the beta will turn out, which is IMO, a loss for all of us.
I can say I dont go to open betas because thats when I feel the least is achieved except finding out bugs. Ppl go to open betas to do cross server pvp or talk to other clans and kill a boss with 79 ppl which is irrelevant to actual testing.
Closed beta has a good sample of players, to test things that are probably only gonna be tested there. I applied to every closed beta ever, and most of open ones, and participated in what OTM let me participate, obviously never lied about how much time Id put in beta (which I believe I always gave max of 3 hours). But, OTM doesnt make a wise decision recycling the players, especially when theres literally nothing achieved from it. I havent been picked to betas as much since the Gele closed beta, which I insisted for OTM to make it longer, and insisted that Gele HAS to be nerfed dramatically, and I called every nerf that was done eventually, during the beta. Instead of listening the comment I got was 'if it bleeds it can die', as a reply to 37 full EDL 220+ toons getting only 5% of Gele's hp down before wiping, when we clearly had no chance whatsoever (because crystals spawned too fast, gele was 225 and had too high hp). I argued OTM on that statement but eventually the closed beta ended with 4 gele raids that were all utter failures.
Gele was killed first time how long after? Half a year and 3 nerfs? Then stop calling ppl salty or butthurt and at least prove ur useful to the closed beta before we wait another 6+ months of another raid boss sitting idle. Ppl complaining about the picks is solely for ur own good, and OTM making unwise picks is as clear as the sun, dont be blind because u have been picked.
I wish good luck to testers, I hope they'll achieve anything because I dont want another raid to be nerfed several times before its even doable. Gele already requires 30+ toons, lets not let OTM increase it, stand on ur own and insist on the right nerfs, even if it means u will lose ur precious beta spot next time, thats what ur testing for, no one wants to see u cross-server pvping or chit chatting.
