I'd throw my hat in here as well- I especially enjoy trying to break character creation systems, and being anal about mission text and suchlike.

And I agree. While I've found excellent communities in a few other MMOs, there was something special about Cities. Glad to hear it wasn't just that it was my first (you always remember that one ;D)

I am not an altoholic! I can stop whenever I want. No, really...

I remember talking to Cajun

I remember talking to Cajun Catfish and crew at Dragon Con last year about volunteering, so I would really like to put my name in the hat as well. It would be a great honor to be a tester. I was one of the many that played COH from launch day non-stop until it set with the sun.

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

I'd like to be able to both alpha and beta test this game, even with the odo and blockhead models... I also missed out on kickstart due to both a deficient wallet, and, timing I found out about it... Yet another me three, I am afraid... LOL

I am also an experienced beta tester. They've handed me the keys to: CO, STO, SWTOR, DCUO, and have tested many Issues of CoH including Midnight Hour, Architect, and Going Rogue

Somebody out there must like my fluke ability to run into graphics bugs constantly

I would like to offer my skills for your alpha/beta testing, through my experience I've played a lot of games in their early beta stages, in which I've provided vast area of feedback and suggestions for improvement. So far, the more well known games with which I can praise my self are: Marvel Heroes Online (I was one of the first beta testers for this game and many of my ideas like for powers and feedback for heroes, made into the game and are still part of it.), Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR), I've been plenty of times beta tester not just for one or two patches of the game, but almost for all of them and I am speaking about Closed Beta Testing not Open Beta... and many others which are not so famous and to be honest, not connect with the western market as a whole.

A 8 year veteran of CoH/CoV

A 8 year veteran of CoH/CoV myself (this was my very first MMO), I'd love the opportunity to be involved with Alpha/Beta testing. Though I've only beta tested 2 MMOs (ESO and now Landmark), I do have a background in developing and writing in for BattleTech, MechWarrior RPG, and MechWarrior (ClickieTech). My experience in this field I feel would be a boon in testing.

Hi everybody! First, sorry

Hi everybody! First, sorry about my mistakes, I'm Spanish and the English is not my native language.

I played CoH & CoV for years! I LOVED that game, It had everything, several power sets, nice custom powers (colours, enhancements...), a good customization of characters, like skins, clothes, colours... And the playstyle was one of the best in compare with other games.

I'm actually playing Gw2. Marvel heroes 2015, Smite and Dc Universe. I played Gw. Wow. infinite crisis, DA, DAI, LOL...

I would love to "test" This game, see if is easy to play to people that don't have English as first language, the quests/Story follows, and of course, the powers and the customization of powers and characters! (is the most visual effect that impact to most players!) :D

I of course would like to test it as well. I will provide exactly zero in the finding of bugs, glitches or general issues. I doubt I would even notice many spelling errors. The biggest reason for giving me this access would be because I really want to play the game as soon as possible.

Despite all that.....pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease.

Ah, but if they have the right tools for metrics for their beta stage, even someone that never reports a thing can be useful! I did the Wildstar beta, and one thing I found interesting out of that was the tools they had, especially the tools they had for analyzing retention. They could not only look at the number of hours played, but they could look at all the players that had stopped logging in....and see where they were, and what they were doing, when they decided not to come back. Clusters of that sort of thing can be an indicator of a problem, right?

They could also potentially track all sorts of numbers....average xp gain, highs and lows, if there's anyone managing to break their system and earn xp at rates outside of what they consider the right range. Perhaps track damage numbers, average deaths by spec. There's all sorts of useful information to be gained from players who never report a thing, with the right tools.

I'd really love to get to try out the game asap, buggy or not, as an alpha tester if possible, and as a beta tester... I'd also like to donate as well for the unexpected expense / outsourcing fund... DCUO just isn't anywhere near as good as CoX was, (with much older software no less), and isn't really well ported over to PC version... I'm itching to (figuratively) don the new spandex!!!

I was a beta tester for COH. It was a blast. I did bump into glitches and exploits and I reported them.I went through all the character wipes, all the meet Statesman here and get bumped to level 10. It was a blast. But it was an honor as well. I had never done anything like that.

It's been a year since it was

It's been a year since it was announced the effort was at least a year away from an alpha/beta testing model. I've never beta-tested a game, but I would like to try CoT. I played CoX for years and look forward to this project. I've also just installed Win10, so it might help to know if it works on that. Anyway, is an alpha or beta close to available yet?

Like many others I was a beta tester for CoH, it was a sad day they decided to close the doors. Also I have beta tested WoW, EQ2, WoT,AW. I would Love to be a part of the beta test when it comes out! And also the Gaming community that I belong too, would love to be a part of this. They have well over 8k members strong!

I would love to be on the list.

Although I didn't BETA test for many games, I did for two.

I BETA tested for Riders of Icarus, and I BETA tested for Destiny.

Destiny may not mean much towards this anyway since its a console game. And I never really got that much into City of Heros, since I was really young, and I could only use my mother's laptop to play.

Nonetheless, I would enjoy being able to add CoT to the list.

As foolish as this seems,

My choice would be to firmly

My choice would be to firmly avoid all the players who filled this topic, since all of them have no clue on when or if this game should come to a beta phase. The game doesn't exist yet, it's a mass of unfunny features you wouldn't fill an alpha even, do you even read their articles, do you even see the latest videos or screenshots?
Playing it would simply make all of you abandon it and never return. There is nothing to mass-test now.

Imho such clueless players would be totally useless in a test.

Me? I don't want to be an alpha tester either, I personally have no interest in playing it till it's actually playable, till it actually has decent animations and everything it needs to be called a game, even bugged game (which in 2016 equals to the release day unfortunately). I think I'll stick waiting for a release and I don't want you devs to make it any sooner than needed, take your time, take your years. I want City of Heroes (or a similar Superhero mmo) to come back in a decent way, I don't want another bad copy to take and trash in the basket.

To the players: This may be our last chance (even majors like SOE and Cryptic failed!), and you want to burn it because you have no experience nor patience apparently. Wake up before you harm the dev process with your expectations and crying for a chance to play it in its actual state.

Sure it may be a bit pointless or ill-timed to be "begging" to test this game now when it still may be year(s) away from being testable. But the only problem with having MWM actually avoid anyone who's posted here asking for a beta spot is that it's not like there's going to be millions of people scrambling to test this game even when it's finally ready to test.
Basically I don't think there will be any need to worry about "signing up" for some kind of heavily restricted beta testing. Sure there might be a period during the early closed alpha testing where they only let say 10 or 25 trusted people jump on the code. But soon enough they'll have to open up beta testing to pretty much anyone who wants to do it because frankly I doubt there will ever be more than say a few hundred people total even remotely interested in getting a sneak peek much less doing any degree of significant testing. This isn't going to be like other huge games that go through multiple waves or levels of beta testing because again there simply won't be millions of people fighting over limited testing invites. I'm not trying to belittle MWM with this - I'm just pointing out that the overall audience for this game is going to be relatively small no matter how good it is.
Everyone just needs to realize that as soon as MWM is ready for testing they'll let us know and when that time comes I suspect pretty much anyone will be able to test it ASAP.

I wouldn't mind to wait till mid-beta, as I'm not sure how helpful I'd be.

While there are people out there who make careers out of professional software testing it's not like you'd really need to have any actual "job experience" to be of some help checking out this game.
As soon as they open it up to general beta testing the Devs would benefit from having as many "eyes" on the game as possible looking for anything. Sure at some point there really needs to be at least a few people willing and able to spend some serious time playing through as much content as possible and double-checking the way powers work number-wise and so on. But even the people who can only spend a few hours running around the zones might very well stumble over graphics glitches or other small things that all need to be fixed regardless.
There's really no such thing as a "useless beta tester" as long as you are honestly spending time looking for things. Even the people who'd just want to jump in to tinker around in the costume creator (not that I'd be naming any names of a few people I knew from CoH who'd pretty much just do that) might find something worth reporting.

I so disagree, in this topic you're looking to a giant list of peoples that will do exactly this (you included in my opinion): The great not-useless betatester enters the game, "Ooooh but this game sux!", uninstalls, never checks these pages again. One customer lost.

This is not just a useless betatester, that's a player less. Who am I to say this: I was paid to betatest in other pay to play famous games so I know exactly what happens and why peoples are still paid to betatest (daily/detailed reports, and no, I don't want to alpha-test this game nor to be paid for that, they're not linked to my work, I want this game to be released and be good).

Reasons on why I strongly believe this topic is a list of peoples to avoid, I explained already before, summary:
1) lack of patience and huge desire to play it NOW (= prone to get disappointed)
2) also we're a long way (years) from a beta test or a playable state and you don't even understand that it seems. No offence intended, simply stating what I see here and why.

Don't worry... offense taken as you intended.
You're certainly being a silly little twit with all this aren't you? I ALREADY AGREED with you that it's somewhat pointless to come to a thread like this and shout out something like, "Pick me for the beta!" when it's clear they are likely at least a year or more away from being ready. But if you just want to be the type who'll piss on everyone's ignorantly optimistic parade just because you think you "know" something about how things work then you're just a sad little troll aren't you? Trust me the Devs of this game aren't going to be coming to you on advice about who they'll be letting into the beta(s) or not.
Regardless I'll get to the fundamental point of your useless responses to me by quoting myself for emphasis: "There's really no such thing as a 'useless beta tester' AS LONG AS YOU ARE HONESTLY SPENDING TIME LOOKING FOR THINGS." The rest of your posting here is needlessly combative and pedantic because I already qualified that if you are NOT there to be useful then obviously you'd just be wasting everyone's time.
Get over yourself with the "holier than thou" nonsense.
P.S. As far as your baseless prediction about whether I'd personally be a "useful" beta tester or not I'll make the reasonably educated guess that I've spent more years testing software than you've been alive.

Well, I hope this is as fun as the Praetorian part of CoH was. I would help test a basic version to supply input. I am a blaster at heart and loved my beam rifle as well as energy blast. Hoping this is a very good successor. I played from 2007 til 2012. Now Paragon Chat is open, just to remind you even if you can fly around and view the sights, that is all that is left.

My specific question: when an alpha-beta, test costume thing is available, how will we know? Will they email us on the Kickstarter? Will it be in the announcements area? I see the bug-report and other threads that make it sound like something's out there now and it's a huge tease!

I expect the Real news will be announced on this forum, also probably emailed to the Kickstarters, and probably leaked all over Facebook. Just wait for the colossal 'SQUEE!' of joy. That will alert you.

Couldn't help @ the Kickstarter phase; any additional plans for fundraising? (i.e. supporter or 'founder' DM content) or should I just buy 100 t-shirts?

LOL. Weeelll on second thought, my wife would KILL me if I filled our closet with 100 CoT t-shirts. I could go to a busy intersection with a t-shirt cannon during rush hour and start blasting cars with shirts.... Good advertising?

I mean... as long as you don't break any windows in the process...

On second thought... break windows. Really make sure that people SEE the T-shirts and what's on them, so that the name can get out there :).

Is that maybe red side thinking? I dunno, but it might walk a line.

I ran across this interesting

I ran across this interesting article on playtesting and finding playtesters for games. It also touches on the difference between playtesting and QA.

I'm guessing that MWM will also go the route of outsourcing the actual QA work.

That's an interesting article and important distinction.

If, during playtesting, MWM has any QA tasks they'd like checked out, I'm happy to help with that also. As long as it's not something like that example of collision detection by running into every single wall!

Many QA tasks are able to be

Many QA tasks are able to be automated these days, having the game essentially play itself over and over to churn out examples of various flaws. Some studios go a bit overboard either relying too heavily on automation or just not putting much focus on QA and polish at all. This can lead to sloppy releases and little post-release support. Since MWM doesn't have investors demanding a quick buck or a studio breathing down their neck hopefully they can afford to really make CoT shine.

Equally important is that players are willing to forgive a great deal if there is good communication with the devs. Test servers and betas can help with this, as well as various forums and other means of communication. A great tool is regular blog posts detailing not only what the team is working on, but why, what they have learned, and what they are doing to improve for the future. People love that. Certain dev teams are really good at this (and some are very bad at it). Silence can lead to a feeling of abandonment, which can inflame community unhappiness related to unfixed bugs or poor design choices. This in turn can cause toxic behavior from the community that further discourages devs from interacting with people, leading to a downwards spiral. Certain high profile studios are suffering a bit from this right now. Good communication is important, even (perhaps especially) if there are grievances with a game.

MWM has shown themselves to be pretty great at this so far, but chatting up a handful of forum regulars is going to be very different from the deluge that can come from a game launch. Success can be hard to handle.

Kickstarter donations get you beta access. There should be a "Second Chance Kickstarter" at some point, though.

Just a thought to share with the devs and community here: why not leave the Alpha testing to the Kickstarters (which i myself missed out on), and allow us non-Kicks to buy our licenses for beta that transfer over to owning our copy when it is finally finished and released?

At this point I'm almost completely certain that you'll have to wait for second chance fund raiser to get into the game before Issue 1 release, mainly because it seem that they are close enough to starting it that they won't take in more testers through other means.

Dont hold your breath. If the Fall 2018 isnt delayed...its still only for a small group of original KS backers. They said they are doing small groups at a time....theres only a few thousand KS backers to go through before the rest of us.

Don't be too discouraged by blacke4dawn and Dark Cleric, Mellie. Unless you were one of less than a hundred KS backers who didn't pledge at the "Construction Crew" level or above, that "K" under your avatar image tells me you're likely already one of those thousands who will be in the earlier waves. Just make sure that the email associated with your KS account is up to date, and resume waiting impatiently!

And if you are one of those less than a hundred, well, in that case I'm thinking they're right, it will likely be a while. Here's hoping that the MWM team can ramp up quickly to get to all those who are waiting for the Second Chance!

Technically, it is still Fall

Technically, it is still Fall. However, the majority of the games which were slated for Fall 2018 have released already, much of which in September or October. Forza and Smash Bros for example were winter releases, but are out already. The winter games are releasing now.

I am guessing this will be a holiday thing. Companies do not wait until the very last day of fall to release games. It is a timetable with Fall being the worst case scenario. My guess is there will be something special in December. Just a little optimism.

As a child, I thought my name was handsome, cause that is what everyone called me.

If you want to get your hands on the Avatar Builder, you need to do one of the following:
(1) Meet up with a MWM dev (probably in NYC)
(2) Be a Kickstarter backer from five years ago and receive your instructions on how to download then access Issue #0 sometime in the next 0-30 days
(3) Wait for the Second Chance funding (no details have been released about this yet) to gain access to the Beta (aka an incremental build sometime after Issue #0 but before Issue #1)

This is a little more important for you KS backers:
