Accidental. I had intended to use Dark Red. The 'I'm just kidding' part wasn't supposed to be in another color at all. I was really tired when I posted that. (Also, I am worried about Season 8 having lots of bugs. I really wish that, when being realistic about Cryptic, game-breaking bugs weren't almost guaranteed.)

Back on topic: I'd almost forgotten that Golds get to skip queues! However, does this work the same way on TRIBBLE that it does on HOLODECK?

Sorry if this has been asked a million times or has been answered already, but does this mean that only Gold members will be able to test content from now on? Any info on the usual testing event and reward for Season 8, and will it only be available to subscribers?

From what I've read around here, this is only a temporary thing till Season 8 hits.

I would imagine that They will have a Season 8 Test Weekend that everybody can participate in, since that has been the norm with most other seasons.

Listen LoR they invited people I get it. They spent time and resources trying to figure out who to invite to LoR, and if you remember they did it in waves, so if you were lucky you got first wave closed beta, if not you got last wave closed beta or had to simply wait until Open Beta came around.

Simply put, you just didn't get the invite this time for first wave closed beta. No one has said you won't ever get to test this stuff, if you don't, well you get to play it on live and you'll have to trust the Gold Player.

If everyone would stop feeling that they are entitled to anything in this game outside of what comes out on holodeck, and be patient and wait for Open Beta on Tribble, then everything would go much smoother.

Hells Bells, Season 8 isn't even out on Tribble, and you're whining. Even worse, you have no idea how long Closed Beta is going to be when compared to Open Beta, and you're whining. It's possible that Closed Beta will be only two weeks, and Open Beta a month. You don't know, and you're complaining.

You don't have to be the first to see the new shiny, and you and I sure a hell aren't entitled to see it at all before it goes live to Holodeck.

I don't freeload. I was subbed for a long time just up until a little before the legacy beta,

but I nor any other player in this game answer to you or anyone else that think they have the title of "forum judge" bestowed to them. and can call people freeloaders or question their work ethic.

I asked a question why they would let someone who had unsubbed recently test out such large material for free I surprised that I was invited, and honored to test it out.
It was a question of surprise not entitlement. and when I asked about the tribble server this time it was out of anticipation for a upcoming good season.


So please step off the soapbox and remember this is a game, and when people ask questions you don't understand, just ask what they mean before attacking their character
with cheap pot-shots.

((and to make things clear I've bought ships, items, and unlocks since I subbed and have continued to after going ftp))
