Betawatch: Star Citizen’s alpha 3.18 has been quite a trainwreck

AND NOW - I DIE!

So Star Citizen launched patch 3.18 last weekend, and everything worked absolutely perfectly with no downsides, please don’t check. But it’s all right because eventually it was addressed with a round and caring “please return to your homes, nothing to see here, look forward to 3.19!” So, yeah, pretty much par for the course for this game.

Other beta news for people not infected with Chris Roberts’ brainworms:

Next Betawatch will be cheerful! I hope. My gosh do I ever hope; my palm and my face are both hurting after this week. You can guess the reason, but while you’re doing that, you can also go check out the full list of games in testing just below. Let us know if something slipped into a new test phase without us noticing in the comments!

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.
