Why You’re Not a Beta Tester

Posted Jun 24, 2011 by Suzie Ford

Why You’re Not a Beta Tester

In today's Player Perspectives column,'s Isabelle Parsley shows her MMO age in her discussion of her history as a beta tester. Isabelle also talks about what beta testing is, or at least what it's supposed to be, as compare to how many treat it these days. Check out Isabelle Parsley's column and then, agree or disagree, tell us what you think in the comments.

Suck it up, pull your socks up and do your job as a tester by reporting on what you find, or just shut the hell up and go elsewhere. Seriously. Oh, and while we’re at it: read the bloody patch notes, kthx.
