Its good to write personal experiences of what happened, but the truth I believe its much better.
I never had some of the mentioned retired betas under me, and for every retired tester, there's a different reason why he left.
I don't want to share the details of why for example Platanix left, but it had nothing to do with random changes, some testers left on their own for more personal reasons, and if they don't want to share the truth, that's something I respect and will not give any more details.
As for a tester coming and being kicked, well kicked is not the correct word. When we don't know a certain player, but he wants to become a beta tester, we give the chance to get to know him better and be under "Checking period" until becoming a permanent beta tester.
If that didn't worked out, we thank him for the time given during that period and we proceed, without any hard feelings. There's nothing about this to take it personal, we just have to see "as a team" how things are working out when a new tester is being added.
We appreciate and we are glad seeing feedback coming from different players, that's 1 reason of having these forums active.
Many changes that took place all these months were given from player's, that is a fact and these players can confirm it them selfs if they want.
Besides player's feedback, we can also see what is wrong and what needs to be changed in order for the game to become more balanced & fair.
Every update is being shared here for that only reason, to get feedback and if a specific balance change is not good, will be changed or even removed.
