Surprisingly, there's only one bot in the server and I think around 100 humans?

 

For a game populated with mostly bots, it seems the Discord server hasn't been invaded by them yet.

i was able to link the invite to my discord app, after playing fighting with it for a while...

 

evidently i had a long-unused discord ID from WT days, and my browser remembered it, even if i didn't 

 

i copy/pasted the invite into the actual app's '"add a server" section, and then it loaded just fine

 

pro tip...  d/l and run the discord app windows client, instead of the discord browser website 'app'       lt's somewhat less of a windows resource hog

 

edit:  i'd love to see a clone of this topic pinned on the Newcomers forum...

Discord, meet dysfunctional.......

 

I've been on discord, and still no one answered my questions, 1. why no test server. 2. Why are the new premiums better than the ones prior 2.05?.

So to me "meh", on the discord, just another rabbit hole, with no solid info.

1.  History shows that even with a test server, they won’t listen to or fix what players point out before releasing it.

That's absolute truth there.  Population on Test Servers dropped precipitously for a number of reasons.  All but the first on this list taken from comments and complaints aired out on the forums after each testing cycle.

 

1.  Dropping test server population commensurate with the dropping game population.  Less people playing means less people willing to test.

2.  "Bugged" and "Glitched" reward emblems that were promised to testers were never delivered, and then forgotten about.

3.  Feedback obviously not taken into consideration from one iteration of the test to the next, and then patch was released with bugs/flaws/faults intact that had been pointed out in testing.

 

If there's no reward for doing so, and there is a perception that one's feedback isn't received or considered, what is the incentive to participate when there are so many more productive things one could be doing with one's time?

Since I have been too generous with my upvotes today, I will reply with a big :thumpup: for this.

 

I have made a suggestion more than once to re-introduce a test server, just so folks could focus on game improvement discussions, rather than complaint about obvious bugs and imbalances.  Most of the bandwidth in the forums is consumed by complainers - most of who actually have valid complaints.  Instead of constantly putting out these fires, WG could do a whole lot of fire prevention by doing some sort of test, first.  Of course, the forum could be just an outlet, much like a suggestion box at work.  A place for folks to get it off their chest, but nothing is going to happen.
