I just received an email invite to a closed, alpha stage MMO beta test. I love beta testing. I love seeing a game grow from crap to less-crap-yet-not-ready-for-release-but-released-anyhow. I love interacting with devs on their life’s work (pre crunch time, of course. Once they hit the crunch they all become crabby). I love going into a new world and trying to contribute to the development process (usually, only to be ignored). Well, chalk another one up on my list of beta tests, and soon as the NDA lifts (ugh, could be a long one) I’ll be sure to be nice.
