14. What does open beta mean?
Open betas serve the dual purpose of demonstrating a product to potential consumers, and testing among a wide user base. With more players using the app, we’re more likely to discover obscure errors that a much smaller testing team might not find. We also want feedback so that our players’ wants, needs, and opinions can be taken into account. Hopefully, when the beta is done and the final product has been released, it meets as many of our players’ expectations as possible.
