  • Life with Beta

    MMORPG.com has another in the series of developer logs written by John Scott Tynes.

    Operating an MMO beta is fantastic. You get all the fun of interacting with real players who are really playing your game, but you're still below the radar enough that the pressure isn't overwhelming. It's a great opportunity to learn what it's going to be like to run a live service.

    We started our beta program a year ago, in late 2005. Players who tried the game back then and then tried it again more recently are amazed at how much has changed. But that's what a year of development gets you! The game has come a long, long way in that year and is much better than ever before.

  • Beta Silliness

    The official site for Pirates of the Burning Sea has a note pointing us to a new entry in Misha's Developers Log. In this entry you'll get a glimpse of some of the silly things that have happened in beta.

    Besides being terrific at finding and reporting bugs and giving general feedback about the pros and cons of the current state of the game, our Beta testers keep us in good humor through all the stress of trying to get this game out the door. Here are a couple samples. Warning: Do not read further while drinking near your keyboard. ;)
