    ...

    If the Chinese had already tested it all and it were that simple as you think, then the game woulda went straight to OB

    ...

    But why don't they just test it and fix it, since it would be somewhat easier on their part? I have always wondered

    Couple reasons

    1) It's extremely hard to test something at the same time you're in the middle of developing something else AND make fixes to stuff all at once.

    2) Even with 100's of players in most CBTs it can still take months to properly test all the features, it'd take years if the dev team did it themselves.

    Soyo is right about the CN thing actually, only bugs theyve really got to fix are text translations, other than that theres the failed graphics from where they translated it-mostly affects glowing on mounts, but seriously-that shouldhv taken under a day, even i know how to fix that.

    With those two things fixed the game couldhv gone to OB with no issues whatsoever, but instead i believe its been dragged out because at the same time their working on their PWI expansion (which sux btw.lol). . . and hopefully targetting/frame rates fixes-if thats not fixed on day 1 of OB ill be incredibly confused as to why this games had a year long beta overall.

    Somewhere in the CB bug forums I think Crab (or any staff member) said that they're looking mainly for the text bugs, but I could be wrong. Can always check it. :x

    Edit; It was text/grammar errors but also mechanical errors. :>
    But I still personally think there were much more text bugs than any other bugs. I really haven't noticed but the text bugs, game setting menu's graphic adjusting bugs and some balancing issues. All these phases were too much IMO, one CB of 2-ish months + the OB would have been enough if the staff had focused and worked really really hard. (Assuming fixing text and some other bugs is easy like people have said o_o)

    Uno i wonder if they could create their own mini program to scan for text errors lol since translations from chinese to english arnt always 100% the program could find the errors and make its soooo much easier for the US devs.

    Unless text is hex code o.o but still would be a time saving tool.

    mechanical well u gotta test by playing lol and doing something over and over again.

    No different to acutly playing OB then xD

    @scarletwitch expecting people to take responsibility for their own actions in this day and age is about as realistic as expecting your RL dog/cat to start comprehending astrophysics. Taking responsibility for your actions died with Common Sense in the early 90s

    Yea everything is getting wiped at the end of phase 4. Meaning the people who want to play and start on the pve server will have to start all over with nothing. But the people who wants to stay in the pvp gets to keep everything. How is that fair?

    Wait, so your saying the only reason they get to keep everything is to beta test the 50-60 content? Who lame

    Testing is the point..seems like most of you have forgotten that.

    Ok, I don't understand this comment. They're not wiping all chars in the PvP server (the current server) so that we will have a chance to test lvl 50+ content. This makes a lot of sense seeing how if everything had been wiped, the lvl 50+ content would have never been tested before OB. In that regard, it makes perfect sense that everyone on the PvP server would be allowed to keep their items, stats, skills, etc.

    I think the part you missed was the fact that the PvE server is NEW. Unless they're allowing people to play across servers, there's no problem here since you would HAVE to create a new char in the PvE server. Sure, you may not get to lvl 50+, but there will likely be other things you can take advantage of.

    So I think the decision is totally fair. I don't know why everyone's complaining. You know there's a wipe coming before OB. It's called Closed Beta for a reason. It's only open to select players who choose to be testers while they're working out kinks in the game. If you wanna complain about the imminent wipe, which has to happen before the game can be open to EVERYONE, so that EVERYONE is on an equal playing field, DON'T SIGN UP TO BE A BETA TESTER!

    Finally, someone who understands what a closed beta is, along with the purpose and point. :D

    they realised people couldn't reached 60 in 1 month, but doesn't change anything

    from 49 to 50 you can get 16m maybe a bit more with hard farming and you need 37.8m to level up, means +/- 2.5 days

    phase 4 is 30 days and i'm sure ppl will need more than 2.5 days at 57 58 59 60( probably between 45 and 50 m exp needed) but shhh let pwe holding their beta and annoy more players

    You know, that's silly to do a wipe just because YOUR friend didn't get in or that people didn't start at the same time :p. This is still a beta test; it is done solely to see if everything will function properly and for any major bugs to be removed. There will be a wipe after phase 4, so everyone can start off on equal grounds. :)

    I played recently another closed beta. Their server was initially in Europe then it was relocated to NA. Not long ago they have created a second server in Europe with an option to choose what server you prefer: EU or NA. No wipe. All characters are possible to transfer once from one server to another. In order to test the new FW PvE server with high level characters it is reasonable to have a similar option.

    but they gave us free cash shop items, that's unfair to them, and the purpose was for testing so yeah the wipes are totally justified.

    No matter what they do, always people will complain. A wipe is justified at the end of CB.

    Even though i didn't manage to get into the beta till phase 4, This was a good choice on your side guys, I'm sure a lot of people would have quit playing the game, Even when going into Open beta. So happy to hear that your not doing the wipe.

    I don't know why PWE have always been so stubborn regarding server transfers.

    I don't get you people, what were thinking "HURR DURR MAH ACCNT IS GUNNA B WIPED SO IMMA GT RID OF ALL MAH STUFF"?

    But really, if the wiped then lots of stuff would go untested, which is, and this may come as a shock to you, THE WHOLE POINT OF A BETA TEST.
