Crucible explains its playtest and tournament plans moving through beta


It wasn’t so long ago that Crucible opted to take itself out of launch and move back into beta. (It was a couple of days ago, to be more specific.) That means the developers are now moving forward with changes with the new pool of now-beta-testers, starting with weekly playtest sessions in which the developers are playing and looking for active feedback. The first of those is occurring today, with playtest sessions split into two; one between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. EDT, the other between 9:00 p.m. and midnight EDT.

Players can also look forward to tournaments continuing into the beta environment with cash prizes, with a larger bounty being paid out for the larger number of participants in said tournament. At fewer than 15 teams, the top 4 teams get paid from a prize pool of $1,000; meanwhile, with more than 32 teams, the top 16 teams get paid and the prize pool is $5,000. That’s certainly one way to motivate people into the competitive end of the game, at least.
