I know games need a certain amount of beta testing before a patch can be released, which means people need to play it so on and so forth.
But im finding an increasing number of "active players" are ONLY playing the beta builds. For example, there was a 6 player(??) match last night (saturday = PEAK HOURS) which was the beta build. Our community is not big enough to accommodate this type of behavior. On the weekend following the release of escalation to so many new players, guess what those players find in the lobby? Nothing. Or matches with newbs, so according to them, the lobby is empty and experienced players dont play ashes.
Please, in the name of growth, can we please stick to beta testing in limited quantities or not during peak periods.. I know the current meta is getting boring or is imba, but PLEASE rather push for patches to come out sooner, as opposed to endlessly testing them. Whats basically happening now is anyone that can or thinks about the beta, plays the beta, while the basic game stagnates.
If the community was larger, this behavior would be fine, but the community isnt, so this behavior isnt fine..
