hello there, I was one of the beta testers in the original City of Heroes! I would love an opportunity to help alpha and beta test this wonderful vehicle if you would give me the chance. I hope to be alongside my fellow heroes here and making this the best superhero MMO ever.so please let me know, if I can help in any other way besides this I loved being a part of the original and that there is a community dedicated to helping this become a reality I would gladly be a part of.

While I know many of us are very excited to see CoT become successful we have to remember that this game is probably at least a YEAR away from having a playable Alpha build much less a Beta. I'm quite sure they will let us know how we can participate long before any of that happens.

To be fair, it does depend as to how much time they want to allocate towards it. Hopefully though, it will be at the end of this year/start of next year when the testing actually starts for the game.

However, the longer that it takes, and if they want to hit their deadline (which I don't think they will achieve in my mind), then the more rushed the game will be....

Sorry, yes, that's what I meant. It's going to be quite a lot of waiting before any testing can be done. And it is rather doubtful they'll hit the deadline, IMO. But, we can hope. :) (Sorry for the long quote, kinda new to forum using.)

If I had to take a wild guess, I would think the first pool of people they would pull testers from would be the kickstarter backers and then open it up to others once they go into later beta testing.

I think "hitting their deadline" is going to be a nebulous prospect at best.

What I mean by that is let's say they decide to launch this game in December 2015. We can hope that whatever features are in the game by that date will be enough to make it a "playable" game. But I think it'll be safe to bet that there will be plenty of features that both we and the Devs will "want" to be in the game that won't be ready by then.

The real trick then won't be whether the game is finished by such-n-such date. The trick will be to see if the game is "finished enough" to allow it to launch and survive long enough to have more working content added to it in a timely manner.

It depends on the specs they need to test. I am more than willing to test Mac client and Controller UI but I may not be the best person to walk every square inch of the map to look for map holes etc.

If we're making applications here, I might as well.

I'd love to alpha or beta test, my luck is quite bad and I run into bugs, sometimes gamebreakers, and I do random, weird things that gamemakers would never expect or want me to do. I really loved CoX, and this game has a lot of potential to be awesome, and I wanna make sure I'm part of it so I can help. :)

I'm not sure how MWM is going to do the development. However, most games don't do an open Alpha testing, usually it's internal. The reason is because it's not fun, the servers are usually only open for a few hours and the game is at best glitchy. I wouldn't expect Beta until next summer.

You don't have to wait until Beta to make your characters. They will release a character builder before then.

Probably, we just have a guaranteed spot. I'd think that unless they only need 4,900-odd (some of us very odd ^_^) beta testers for the whole beta, they'd be gathering some more volunteers. More eyeballs on the game to spot problems, if nothing else. And, it would most likely be around a year from now, plus or minus.

Since I didn't really see another thread for this:

Once the game actually gets that far, have the dev's considered doing an Open Beta?

Yeah, I realize it isn't as fair to the backers. BUT! Open beta means that you catch means more bugs caught as you have people streaming in to break the game. It also serves as advertising since it'll bring in more paying players once the Beta closes and they get cut off.

I missed out on the kickstarter as well. I didn't hear about it until after it had closed. I've lost touch with most of the people I knew from COH. I'm still really close with some of them and we're hovering over these forums like cats waiting for a mouse! I'd jump at any testing opportunity I could get. Just the idea of popping myself into the world and just looking around makes me giddy.

It would be an honor to be an Alpha/Beta tester, I played CoX from the beginning all the way to the end as well as beta tested for it, if I was chosen for Alpha/Beta testing I will be using my MSI GT70 17 inch 780 GTXTI GPU, 16 GB RAM, 750 GB SSD laptop and be able to use everything on the highest settings for testing paying attention to every detail as well as keeping track of everything I come across. As well as being a beta tester out side of gaming, I am also an artist and designer and have connections with published writers, as well as media graphic designers.

If I get chosen, I would like a second access for my boyfriend who is fully sponsored by NZXT, BENQ, BMG Alaska, 907 Gamers, and partnered with Razer and NVIDIA. He has beta tested for NVIDIA and NZXT for Hardware and Software over the last few years during this time he also beta tested for other games such as:
Counter Strike
Counter Strike Source
Counter Strike Global Offense
Counter Strike Condition Zero
Counter Strike 1.6
SWAT 4
GRID
NEED FOR SPEED Underground
NEED FOR SPEED Underground 2
The Crew
BattleField Hardline
BattleField 3
BattleField 4
Watchdogs
Awesomenauts
Destiny
Eve Online
DayZ
ARMA 3
Diablo 3
Smite
Storm
Gun Club
Warcraft Frozen Throne
Medal of Honor War Fighter

These are most but not all of the games that him/we have beta tested over the years. His PC speculations are ASUS Z97 Board, 26 GB RAM Overclocked to 1900, 3770k CPU, Kracken X61 closed loop cooler for the CPU, 780 GTX TI Classified with Kracken X10 adapter and Kracken X41 closed loop cooler, 2 1 TB Harddrives and 500 GB SSD, 10 Fans for push/pull set up. One of our custom gaming towers we use for beta testing and gaming. My boyfriend also has connections with major corporations and has traveled for gaming conventions as well as participating in gaming tournaments.

In all honesty, I have beta tested for different games since CoX has been shut down and still have yet to find a game to fill that empty void. I would like to commit my time to the Alpha/Beta testing because I believe this is the type of game I see myself playing in the future due to CoX being shut down. I'm looking forward to playing this game in the near future, I believe we will be a great addition to the testing team and provide you with full feed back to improve the game.

I know this is a touchy subject, but I wouldn't mind paying to beta test either. It would be me, my wife, and my son, all of whom are CoH vets. We would know that the sub was going to support the game, so we'd be happy to pay. I just can't bring myself to sub on any other game (I've tried), and I can afford the sub, so I may as well support the game I want.

CoH is the first and MMO that I actually played continuously and is one of my top favorite MMO's that I have ever played. I started playing CoH relatively a few months before it was shut off. In the first couple of days I fell in love with the game and was devastated when I heard it was going to be shut down. I would love to be in the alpha/beta and help with finding bugs and glitches in the game.

Yeah, I've never done Alpha or Beta testing before, but friends of mine have and warned me that it's not all fun and games. I would expect things to be frustratingly, overwhelmingly buggy and limited at first with LOTS of long lists of mind numbing question answering and constant reporting.

Still want in! :D Want to help any way I can.

This is why I am always of two minds about participating in betas. On the one hand, I get to experience the game early. On the other hand, I'm technically there to do a job: to try to break the game. Some people love it. For others it's a lot like having to write an instruction manual.

I signed up here to participate in the forums and I saw this- I know there is no official list but I want to put my hat in the ring when there is.

I've beta tested Asheron's Call 1 & 2, Anarchy Online, CoX, Champions Online & DCUO. There have been a few others but those are the primary ones that I contributed the most on.

Thank you all for what you do- and if there is a way to donate more money I'd love the opportunity because I was destitute during the original Kickstarter run.

What kind of forms did you have to submit? was it weekly? after a play session? What else did you do as a beta tester?
Just curious. :D

When the time comes, I'd love to beta test the game and or any parts that you release. I'm usually free during the week except for Fridays. Since it's going to take a while, I can be patient.

Sign me up for Beta testing.

Played CoH right from the get go. Been sitting in void since they shut down. Been playing DC Universe Online and Marvel Heroes, both are lacking in so many ways, I don't even know where to begin.

As a Beta, I'll be throwing in every glitch I come across on top of all the nuances that make CoT short of being CoH class MMO. Of course if CoT outshines CoH in anyway you can be sure to hear feedback on that too.

I would like to enter for beta testing. I played COH since season 1 and there is a huge void. I miss soloing with my master minds. I participated in beta testing for COH, COV, Star Trek Online and Starwars the Old Republic. I look forward to helping you build the best hero game.

An infinite number of tries doesn't mean that any one of those tries will succeed. I could flip an infinite number of pennies an infinite number of times and, barring genuine randomness, they will never come up "Waffles".

Well, I don't know how, or

Well, I don't know how, or even if, this thread will be used when the time comes but I might as well add my name here as well.

Like so many others, I was a Veteran CoH player. CoH/CoV was the only game I played for the last seven years of its existence. Since it vanished I've been wandering around cyberspace like a lost soul trapped in purgatory so yes, given the opportunity I would love to be involved in testing City of Titans as early as possible.

I've been in hundreds (yes, hundreds) of closed and open beta tests, and around a dozen Alpha tests (all closed tighter than a waterproof drum). At the moment I am testing both Project Gorgon and Valiant. Unlike many, I actually do run comparison tests of every feature I can access. Provided an ingame bug/suggestion report facility exists, I report every little detail I find that seems out of place or non-functional. I also religiously report copy errors (both typos and flat out mistakes!) in game text at every step of the process. During my time in CoH I spent countless hours on the test server. My moment of pride was the Dual Wield set. I suspect it never would have worked as well as it did without all the bug reports and graphics glitches I filed while testing it. First time I tested it the left hand weapon didn't even display and in half the animations the right hand weapon stayed poised in the air while the hand moved. That was pretty freaky, but the real problem was in the description text. I think maybe the person who wrote the first descriptions was Sumerian because they seemed to be transcriptions straight from cuneiform.

Please add me to the list for testers. I beta tested CoH and played it for the duration of the game. Also have beta tested Champions Online, DCUO, DDO, and, most recently, Elder Scrolls.

As a 100% disabled vet I had a lot of time to burn and CoH was more than just a game to me. Early on I joined the newly formed "The Impossibles", or as we called ourselves, The Imps. People from all over, different lifestyles, ages, races and beliefs, yet we became like family. I'd like to see that happen again with CoT. Thanks to all who are giving us a chance to continue on with that journey.

I love your post. Most people out there think and even insist that CoH was just another game, but it wasn't. It just wasn't.

There was a... heart... to the game, very much in keeping with the spirit of the Superhero genre, that transcended the engine and mechanics and graphics and combat system.

RIP, CoH. Long live City of Titans.

I too would like to throw my hat into this ring- I've beta tested Asheron's Call 2, Anarchy Online, Everquest 2, CoX, DCUO, and a few others.

I love submitting bug reports! I love exploring and trying to break things (within reason- and always for the good of the game, not for exploits.)

Nevertheless- my favorite genre has been the Superhero MMO. CoX was like a second home to me when I was a member, and then I moved over to Champions Online. I sank A LOT of cash into that game, and realized it wasn't going anywhere. I'd like to support you guys in any and every way possible- starting with testing for you.
