Map Testers Wanted
« on: 2013-08-08 18:38:05 »
We're looking for about 10-15 people who are interested in testing maps for us and giving us feedback before the maps are released. Good maps need a lot of iteration and you could really help making the game better (in returen every tester who gave feedback will be featured in the game's credits). It's not so much about bugs as about balancing.

Our plan is to form 2 or 3 "test groups". Mid/end of this month we're going to send the first group a couple of maps, collect their feedback and suggestions, improve the maps and send them to the next group and so on.

If you're interested in helping us, please leave a comment!

Would love to test out the map though I must admit that I don't have alpha access in case that is an requirement. I do however have the backer level for beta access.

I'd also love to help with map testing, and I only have beta access too in case you need people with alpha access to do this.

I should be free for testing so long as I'm told when to do it and it doesn't coincide with PAX(if the test is at the end of the month). I'd be up for testing maps, but I'd recommend doing a few things since balance testing is a bit different from bug testing.

1) We should be allowed to have a voice communication server, either set up by you or a community member. The single fastest way to test things is by allowing people to chat with their voices.

2) We should have some set up optimal time frames given to us via email. People are a LOT more likely to congregate if you tell them when to group up, and you have more authority than a community member would.

3) PLEASE enable full map visibility. Seriously, that would help tremendously. Even just setting the fog of war to be fog and not pitch blackness would help a buttload with map testing.
