  • Wartune BETA

    Wartune is the longest running BETA test in the history of games

  • #2
    The 'beta' description is just to let players know that the game is still evolving, and that sometimes there will be problems along the way. If the game were to not be in beta, it would mean that what we see is what we get, with no plans to change anything down the road. For as long as Wartune will be getting patches, the game will be considered beta.

      Any new games coming to r2games for Browser gameplay? Its summer and I haven't seen anything yet.
      Also will there ever be any pve modes added for Wartune? I understand that the game is in a extremely difficult to balance phase.
      Feels like it will from this point on ONLY be a pvp game due to the wide gaps in BR between new, old, casher/noncasher/semi casher players.
      Just feels like there isn't any other reason to play at this point if I'm only going to win vs younger toons and no way to really catch up to older players.
      Its a feeling of not going anywhere because its ALL pvp based now at my br (15m not even that high, but higher then I need for almost all pve needs).
      Lord's Trial is.....lackluster.
      The chances there are new dungeons.....seem to be 0.
      All weeklies are pretty easy to clear as I can always find a higher br to assist.
      I sure don't have the answers I just wonder If it was something at all that was being looked at.
      I don't have it in me to play wartune reborn as it will come to this point eventually.

            You say it's out of the beta stage, but then you say that it's in open beta.... It's quite obviously an open beta, but it's only considered beta because it's not the kind of game that gets a final release.

            No, the test server is not a closed beta server, it's a just test environment that makes sure the code still runs when new stuff is added to it. To call it a closed beta server would lead people to believe that it's a place where people are playing it to test the content, find bugs, and pass along suggestions, but that's not the purpose of the test server.

            And before anyone asks, as is always the case when it's mentioned on the forum, the test server that some players have access to is not the one R2 uses, so please don't send me pm's asking how to join it.

            I have not seen any mention of new browser games joining the lineup in the near future. Most new games are for mobile, since that is the current trend for gaming.
            We aren't given much advance notice for upcoming content, but I would imagine that if there is any future pve content it would also include pvp elements, like vortex. PvE by itself doesn't age very well.

            It's not likely we will see this topic being discussed until 2020.

              Stages of development

              Pre-alpha


              Pre-alpha refers to all activities performed during the software project before formal testing. These activities can include requirements analysis, software design, software development, and unit testing. In typical open source development, there are several types of pre-alpha versions. Milestone versions include specific sets of functions and are released as soon as the functionality is complete.

              Alpha


              The alpha phase of the release life cycle is the first phase to begin software testing (alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, used as the number 1). In this phase, developers generally test the software using white-box techniques. Additional validation is then performed using black-box or gray-box techniques, by another testing team. Moving to black-box testing inside the organization is known as alpha release.[1]

              Alpha software can be unstable and could cause crashes or data loss. Alpha software may not contain all of the features that are planned for the final version.[2] In general, external availability of alpha software is uncommon in proprietary software, while open source software often has publicly available alpha versions. The alpha phase usually ends with a feature freeze, indicating that no more features will be added to the software. At this time, the software is said to be feature complete.

              Beta




              Beta, named after the second letter of the Greek alphabet, is the software development phase following alpha. Software in the beta stage is also known as betaware.[3] Beta phase generally begins when the software is feature complete but likely to contain a number of known or unknown bugs.[4] Software in the beta phase will generally have many more bugs in it than completed software, as well as speed/performance issues and may still cause crashes or data loss. The focus of beta testing is reducing impacts to users, often incorporating usability testing. The process of delivering a beta version to the users is called beta release and this is typically the first time that the software is available outside of the organization that developed it. Beta version software is often useful for demonstrations and previews within an organization and to prospective customers. Some developers refer to this stage as a preview, preview release, prototype, technical preview / technology preview (TP),[5] or early access. Some software is kept in perpetual beta, where new features and functionality are continually added to the software without establishing a final "stable" release.

              Beta testers are people who actively report issues of beta software. They are usually customers or representatives of prospective customers of the organization that develops the software. Beta testers tend to volunteer their services free of charge but often receive versions of the product they test, discounts on the release version, or other incentives.

              As the Internet has facilitated rapid and inexpensive distribution of software, companies have begun to take a looser approach to use of the word "beta".[6] In February 2005, ZDNet published an article about the recent phenomenon of a beta version often staying for years and being used as if it were in production level, disparagingly called "perpetual beta". It noted that Gmail and Google News, for example, had been in beta for a long period of time and were not expected to drop the beta status despite the fact that they were widely used; however, Google News did leave beta in January 2006, followed by Google Apps, including Gmail, in July 2009.[7] This technique may allow a developer to delay offering full support and responsibility for remaining issues. In the context of Web 2.0, people even talk of perpetual betas to signify that some software is meant to stay in beta state. Also, "beta" is sometimes used to indicate something more like a release candidate, or as a form of time-limited demo, or marketing technique.[8] Since the introduction of Windows 8, Microsoft has no longer been naming their software as a beta. Instead, they have been using the term preview for most pre-release software. Since the launch of the Windows Insider Program back in 2014, all pre-release builds that are released through the program are known as Insider Preview builds.

              Open and closed beta

              Developers release either a closed beta also called private beta, or an open beta also called public beta; closed beta versions are released to a restricted group of individuals for a user test by invitation, while open beta testers are from a larger group, or anyone interested. Private beta could be suitable for the software that is capable to deliver value, but is not ready to be used by everyone either due to scaling issues, lack of documentation or still missing vital features. The testers report any bugs that they find, and sometimes suggest additional features they think should be available in the final version.
