If yer that pizzed off about not being able to test, then buy a lousy $15 worth of game time and see if what yer missing is worth all the ranting.

agreed...
i still try to comprehend why sometimes this "MMO activits" type get mad for things that dont really matter...

IT JUST A GAME MAN!!! you like to test the think before they actually get to the game thats good...
BUT NOBODY CARES about wat you think or not!!!
i have a taint of my past for doing this MMO activism, getting mad about thinks that are just not right IN A GAME...

but man this type of people need to learn this

YOU ARE ONLY GETTING YOURSELFES SEEN AS ANNOYING COMPLAINERS AND FLAMMERS NOTHING MORE !!!believe me i learned this the hard way
this condition for tribbles its for the time being.. its temporary... if they where going to actually put this forever they would have SAY THAT...

sorry for the poor english ?? if i wrote anything wrong here... its not my primary language...

Also do not use the whole Tribble can not handle the strain arguement. It is invalid at best.

Fanboys will rush to Fanboy defend...
If you go back and read closely, the devs NEVER mention that the Tribble would be now only for Gold Members... I still don't understand why people don't get it... Just because they closed it down for only GM that don't mean that they want you to pay to test the stuff... It's only for a limited time.. gotta read closely to the dev posts... and as for the Tribble can not handle the strain argument.. well, I've never mentioned anything about that...

Do you not get the point I'm trying to get out? Cryptic is not going to make this change to be like that forever... It is only a TEMPORARILY thing...

again.. Read Closely!!!!

I so agree with you... It's only a game, plus the changes to the tribble access is only temporarily... I don't know why everyone understood that it was going to be permanent...

BTW your English is very good!!!

I always said Tribble was more of a "preview shard" rather than "test shard". Now it shows, more than ever...

I've got no idea what Cryptic is thinking. Are players supposed to test the upcoming content and report bugs or really just see what new bugs are coming soon and deal with it? What's up with having to pay for the privilege of testing the upcoming build?

I guess this is just temporary and all players will be able to access Tribble sometime before S8 launches, but nevertheless this is just weird. Cryptic's got all the data about players who log into tribble and how much time do they spent there, as well as (supposedly) how many bug reports they send, so why not do the same thing as with LoR and reward those players with early access?

Has anyone thought about the capacity needed if we all went over there to look all at once. it is fine let them load test the content without an avalanche. LOR was dismal in this regard.

You are right, clearly I should support the decision of people who now screwed up the testing process while attempting to add a reason for me to pay.... /sarcasm

Temporary.. your right, after there is nothing new to test with this launch coming up, they will open it up for 3 days prior to the actual launch and say go for it!!!!! Then we get 3 days for the general public, some of who spent a great deal trying to break things to find bugs, to find all the new ones that have been available for 3 weeks or so.... Yeah, you seem not to understand it is not the PRIVILAGE that is the issue here. It is the new BUGS that will easily go to Holodeck since the gold players are going to experience the content, then go right back to Holodeck... Some of us played with the UI, Ships, Barriers, Cloaks and other abilities in an attempt to make them break in some way. A great deal of the testers now do not do that. Temporary or not, our manpower is lost, once lost can not be recovered. This is Cryptic's way of telling me that my opinion is not important. Message recieved, I will not test for them again. Free manpower only lasts as long as the VOLUNTEERS are happy.

I noticed yesterday that the Tribble Server was gone from the Launcher and all I wanted to do was check something. I could care less about the Beta Testing and who gets to do it. My issue is, Cryptic could of put a message on the launcher as I bet I'm not the only one wondering what happened and have to get on here and search through posts to find an answer.

It seems like every single time I go to do something it's nerfed, bugged or has been taken away.

At the very least they could of put this in the Tribble Patch Notes or somewhere in that that same thread!

Cryptic has stated in many forum posts and in activating Tribble that it could be taken down any time without notice.

This has me worried.

In CO, the test server is a gold feature only.

Though the semantics of the statement made at the beginning of this thread (you all know which one) imply that the change is temporary, I would still like a direct answer as to whether it is or not. Cryptic is notorious for ambiguity when it comes to timetables, so any more definite statement by them would be appreciated.

(In other words, Cryptic, please tell us whether this change will be reversed in time to test future content updates.)
