Betawatch: Waven’s alpha testing is active and rolling

THEY FIGHT

So, how are things going with Waven’s testing? Well, the good news is that the team is sharing regular patches and updates with fans. The bad news is that a lot of this is happening on the forums, and if tu ne sais pas lire le francais, this is somewhat less helpful. The good news again is that for those of us who can indeed lire le francais, the updates show a steady progress of bug fixes and stability improvements, and it’s available for testing in English as well. In other words? All good here!

Other beta news? Sure thing, you lovely humans:

Gotta tell you, the first half of this post was more fun than the second half. Seriously, Gamigo, what in the heck? It’s the day before Christmas and you offload this to a little indie team? I don’t care what you think about Fractured Online‘s overall design goals or viability, the team deserves better than this. Anyway, try to let go of that for the moment while you check out our list of games in testing below; as always, let us know if something slipped to a new test phase without us noticing.

As always, we consider an MMO to be in open testing if it features free, public signups and will server wipe prior to launch. An MMO is marked inĀ closed testing if it’s running a private test phase that cannot freely be accessed by the general public; it’s usually under NDA as well. Early access and crowdfunded MMOs whose tests we deem legitimate will be included. So-called “open beta” soft-launch MMOs with cash shops, no sign of launch in the west, or limited interest for our readers will not be listed, nor will games that are NFT/blockchain scams; we also do not list expansions, with occasional exceptions.

Yes, MMO gamers, you too can perform the unpaid quality-control work otherwise known as game testing! Check out Massively Overpowered’s Betawatch every week for a run-down of MMOs that are still on the road to launch, even if they appear to have set up a permanent residence in a shed called early access.
