I'm sorry but anyone thinking Roc is doing something wrong is a punk. The dude is simply trying to show what the game is like so far. His videos really aren't any different then the rest of them on the net. It's free publicity for SE and any publicity is good publicity when your trying to sell a product.
Roc you reading these be assured that more of us support you then condemn you. Good work!!!
Except he is honor-less for giving his word to SE not to post videos, and then doing so. And don't go robin-hooding him up! he is hardly fighting a corrupt establishment just because SE isn't giving you everything you want.
it's not a fair assessment and a possible total misrepresentation
most likely they don't want people getting the wrong impression of what this game will be like come release
People need to really stop talking like this. This game is a full on release in just a hair over a month. For them to not have us test a good chunk of final release material would be foolish
SE dev1: "The data we are getting in is good"
SE dev2: "Yeah, but I wonder if the final product being so different will have any effect on this?"
SE dev1: "Wait, why don't we just test parts of the final product?"
SE dev2 "....!"
I can't respect the post of someone with a hateful, trolling signature. That said, they could just give us one map, one of each leve type, one monster and one class of each disciple and that would test enough of the bones for them to layer more content on that with an acceptable level of success.
Alpha to Beta saw HUGE changes in a short amount of time, you don't think they did all that coding only between test periods do you? There's a good chance we ARE NOT testing the final build of the game. We sure as heck aren't seeing all the content! (We know there's 3 other main cities of course, and many hints at other classes entirely)
They do have in-house testers for details, public testing is more or less to gauge preferences for elements of play, detect obscure hardware conflicts, and to act as server load.
Threads like this make me sad for Alla, and enlighten me as to why people bash it so.
Alla is great, this type of thing is much more rare here than in other sites. Please check the post-count of the guy who posted it, he came here from twelves-know-where just to spread his ego around the net. He DOES NOT represent us at all. Your snide, "Why people bash it so." remark is insulting. AT least, I am insulted that you step into some trash thread and presume your from some magical internet land where your forums don't get occasionally mucked by foreign trolls. Go mix Marmite with water! It's illegal! ;) Edited, Aug 18th 2010 4:05pm by Tweezle120
