Test Rewards are not going to be worth it?
 
So I have clocked up about 90hrs of playtime testing on Tribble.
:rolleyes:

Now at minimum wage in the UK of 6 per hr, this is nearly 550!!
With that I could buy 68,500 CP.

68,500
:eek:

Somehow I do not think that the rewards they are giving will be worth this in the C-Store.
Cryptic are getting a good deal...

Helping out cryptic is all the reward that is needed...:mad:

lol wat.. noone forces you to play test... minimum wage for voluntary work is 0, so you actually have earned 0 which would equal 0CP.

I doubt it took me that long to unlock everything. In fact, I think I needed half the time of that at most. You don't have to spend more time there than needed, though of course it's appreciated when you do. :D

I calculated that I get for over 110 Euros worth of goodies and that was without the dilithium added on top of it. (I have 11 chars and the more chars you have, the more value you get, if I only had 1 char I'd get for less than 20 Euros woth of goodies.)

I don't regret my time spent testing, despite the frustrations it is nice to see the incoming changes. Also, if I received a 100% reward for my time spend I'd not be helping out Cryptic, but working for Cryptic instead. I'd basically be on their pay roll then and I'm not sure how I could explain that to the tax department. Especially not when they ask me to pay taxes on the goodies I earned by testing for Cryptic. ;)

Me me me....

Look this isnt about you OP. This is about us hopefully helping Cryptic make a better game. The fact they offer anything as a reward is totally awesome.

Sheesh.... kids these days...lol ;)

I think you guys took the post a little too literally......i could swear i sensed a small degree of sarcasm in there somewhere.

Yes Cryptic is getting a good deal, and we are getting something while at the same time hopefully helping the game to get better.......we can hope anyways.

Of course the reward won't be worth it. I'm testing a few things but honestly I'm expecting nothing more than another title, a tribble and a costume item.

But then again, according to some, we've been beta testing for over a year now as well......

But will this end up like S4? Deploy the changes without the fixes and pretend they never heard of them.

At this point, I'll be happy if the KDF side DOFF system ever gets a way to score tier 3 or 4 in a CXP category. At the present rate, I don't expect many (if any) Klingon characters on Tribble will be able to score the highest DOFF testing reward.

Then again, I'm not even sure Diplomacy counts on the Fed side, in which case it's just as bad there.

Diplo gets nuked, so probably noone will reach the t3 reward. Im searching all the time for medical missions now, but they seem to have dried up for now and i ma stuck at 7k xp... :(
