    Honest question:

    What’s the difference between those who post bug reports in the QA testing for two weeks before it’s pushed and those who post bug reports for the current release? Both accomplish the same result - an active participant engaging the development team about an issue in the game.

    For the amount of bugs we encounter in current releases vs. bugs reported in pre release it seems like an asinine reward system.

    As I think about it, there is no incentive for me to report a bug.

    Perhaps @Berek @DarkStarr @Lexie you should reconsider what pool of participants are rewarded.

    Do, getting back to the first question, what is the difference for posting bugs and receiving rewards? Both benefit the community

    I guess having a bug fixed isn't incentive enough to report it.

    the difference is that the people spending time on qa are actually sacrificing potential character advancement. they're spending those hours playing characters forked off of live and deleted when qa ends, so they get no progess for that time.
