to answer that simply, No. Not your regular game profiles. Your BETA profile WILL be reset after 1.481 goes live though. So if you want to test 1.482, you will be at 0 again, in BETA only.

And there will be admins around in the beta side of things during the testing, so people can be given prestige in order to provide for ranks of all sizes. That's not really a problem, as I understand it.

This is only for the purpose of more balanced testing, though; don't ask for pres on the release side of things.

Well, I agree with the transfer to Beta. I think, that prestige gain should be off on the servers; but every time we log into beta it will copy our profiles across from the Meta-Server.

We also need a variety of ranks to help test the beta side. This, additionally, makes it self-defeating to transfer rank back and forth.
And, we want people to test without reguards to what it might do to their profile. Making beta prestege matter on your release account is couterproductive to this effort.


Well with our old profiles we would still test ships of different sizes, as we already dont play with dreads, but also with cruisers and dessies (maybe some other ships too, but more rarely)
If we just test scouts or frigs or maybe dessies and some heavy cruiser/battle cruisers, we wouldn't test it the way we usually play...

Basically, the idea (not ideal) of combat would change as soon as it hit the release version. "Where did all the Dreadnoughts come from!? STRESS OVERLOAD!"

I agree with profile transfers over to the Beta (for subscribers only).

I have to agree. In beta I still have 50k bonus Faustus handed out long time ago but with very few badges and no one to duke it out with there wasn't any way to test some of the ships. I could get a combat dread but that doesn't realy count. Also having no money and no good way to make more made modification testing nearly impossible.

So, is this going to happen? I'm still interested in this happening.
