What I understand from a long time ago is that the intent is to do alot of the testing and stuff in house, and keep it closed as much as possible. (Meaning themselves and maybe a few other people who actually will work as testers and not just players.) After they were satisfied with what they had, they'll make some sort of public release announcement...

Alpha testing is simply that testing.

To give you an idea of what an alpha test would be like with me in charge of.

Give objectives to alpha team.. systems that will be tested.

Load server.. clients log on.. they start testing.. report bugs and write up descriptions what they were doing at the time.. then go back to testing..

Shutdown the server make adjustments (wookie) load up server next objective.

Alpha != Playing
Beta 1 != Playing
Beta 2 = Some Playing
Open Beta = Playing

Find a category that fits you best and most like that is the category you will end up in.

Again this is just in my perfect world Smile

@Stant - that is not completely accurate.

No official yes or no has been made to an open testing stage whatsoever. It's something I've been pushing for since I became part of the team as I know that testing stages is the only way to release a good title even if its to be free and not sold. The community that is waiting for the game wants the same as a sold title gives you. Playing without major bugs or major features missing etc..

When we decide if and when we will do testing outside the devstaff I would assume that our alpha applicants would be contacted via pm by either or thewreck. Beta1 would be drawn from a pool of applicants and Beta2 would probably be closer to an open beta or stress test of systems and the server etc..

This is not official this is how I would consider things being done if we choose to do testing stages.

More info soon to come.
