What happened to the second round of closed beta invites, or did I miss the announcement? I wasn't expecting the special test weekend for the reward to happen until the weekend before LoR launches like you guys did with season 7.
Did you bump things up because of all the whiners not getting a beta invite?
I had a Romulan around level 26 and was awaiting the rest of the episodes to unlock, then you guys wiped tribble server lol.
Im a little dismayed that us closed beta testers get nothing unless we log in this weekend
But it is what it is and i will do as ive done throughout and log in and test for several hours as normal.
So Branflakes can we get a hint what the "reward" is or is it a wait and see thing
Getting into closed beta and getting to test the content early IS your reward. A quick perusal of the closed beta thread in the Fed News Network should tell you that there are (soon to be "were") plenty of players who wanted that invite (some, like me, who met the qualifications for the invite, but just lost out to the computer's random selection of 1000ish people on the qualified list). Getting to test early is a reward because you get to help make sure the content is good before everyone else sees it (and you get to play it first too!).
I will say this: if STO ties in a reward to closed beta testing Romulans/new KDF and doesn't give it to people who tested the new Fed stuff, I will be severely disappointed. People who love testing the new content (like me; been doing it since before STO went live) shouldn't be penalized for not getting lucky with an invite.

I'm kind of hoping the reward will be unique Warp/Singularity Cores which we can claim since they're the main new shiny being introduced. It could be the "Fuzzy-Wuzzy Core" where the item icon is a tiny hamster in a wheel...
I was not sure were to post this.... but if its on the wrong sub-forum section Please feel free to move it to the correct one!!!
On with the topic... I been playing on the Tribble for quite a while now.. I love testing the update before hand to see what its like... And with LoR I'm out of the roof getting to play the Romulans... but I lately seen this problem in my HUD.. not sure if anyone else has it but on all the interaction windows likes ex. when your in a mission and you Bridge Officer contacts you and you read the message on the left.. its seems like the TOP and LEFT side of the Words are being eaten by the window... Here is a quick snap of what it looks...
