[quote]i dont think it matters if they do a lottery or open beta either way in the end you all get to play the mod its not like your not going to play it at all. plus when you have an open beta alot a spam occurs when it comes to reporting errors or glitches...plus i bet there has been ppl that have been with the mod since the start but when the come up with an idea it gets posted before they can post it. so just cuz u posted dosent give you the right or anyone that has posted alot and had ideas.. ur going to mad if ur not in the beta anyways. its not going to kill u to wait.They coulda still posted. There have been TONS of ideas I wanted to post, but were posted before me. Did that stop me? No. I made comments about the idea, threw in my two cents, and tried to refine it. I put in effort where others didn't, a lot of people have. And in my opinion, THEY should get the beta.
yes i couldnt agree more you shouldnt get rewarded for telling us stuff we already know/quote]Not to sound rude, but this kinda made me mad. Through-out this mod I've seen TONS of ideas posted, that you guys (Well, atleast Canada) said "Thanks for the help, I never thought of that". Now, he coulda been lieing to make us feel good, that's a perfectly logical reason. But then, he coulda just as easily been telling the truth, that the extra brain-power did help come up with ideas he wouldn't have thought up on his own. And even if you guys did allready know it all, that's not the point. The point is you have a steady, solid fanbase who've continouesly tried to help, where ever they could. And they should be rewarded for their faithfullness by being allowed to beta test.It's just not right to screw over your fans, and contributers (However small of a contribution it may have been), and allow some guy who's only gone "I'll beta!" to beta it, while the guy who's made concept art and helped with Halo Lore and many other things sits by and doesn't get to play it. That's not fair, and it's a total "fuck you" to the fans and contributors :/ So yeah, the idea of a lottery doesn't sit well with me, at all.
ok i understand but the point is if it was a lottery it random just like in real life... you go and buy a lottery for the frist time and say u win.. other ppl have been buying tickets for a long time..
You guys also have to take into account that there are those who have been lurking on these threads, just excited as you are about the mod. Captkeys and the rest of the mod dev team should be the ones deciding this. I could have posted about a million ideas but just because I gave millions of ideas does that make me any more rightful to doing the beta? Not really, it might make me a little more snobby, as many have previously shown. (Not limited to this mod or even this game's mod)
but hey guys why are you complaining he said that you we going to have a part in it. plus the mod come out for eveyone to use. no matter how much we argue its up to the main guys to decide what to do. not us.
canadaman proved my point about having an open beta. if have one, ppl will report about the same one over and over without reading the ERRORs and see that is already posted some might but alot wont
