    Lightbulb [Suggestion] Make beta SERIOUS.

    Too many people see beta as a "fun" thing. "Oh, I can do anything I want, and it won't actually happen! I can giveaway stuff.." "I can get free stuff..." "Destroy my world for fun..."

    There is a simple way this can be stopped! This is that no data from the main server is carried over to the beta server! Worlds wouldn't exist, and inventories would be empty! Apart from a small selection of functional items to help testing, and the gems to buy the packs, every world would be a dirt world. Also, any Broadcast isn't shown publicly but is added to a list that only mods/developers can read. The only way for communication is chat, /msg and global system messages. This completely ruins the "fun" part of beta, allowing serious players to test as much as they want without seeing distracting broadcasts of "umg I wanna try Da Vinci who can give". It's a WIN-WIN!

    Yes, this was partially copied from my previous post, and NO, this isn't satire. Seriously, this is an actual suggestion.

    TL;DR: Suggestion: Nothing on the main server gets taken to the beta server, and BCs are not visible to players.

    What if bug finders get special exclusive hats that are untradeable and carry over to the real server?

    If they're untradeable: Good. But ONLY if you find a bug. Casual Beta'ers won't get anything.

    If this beta will be anything like the 2015 ones, you're literally starting on a new account with all worlds being reset. That's how it was last time, but I guess you're thinking of the older betas?

    I've never been on beta before. All I've done is stared at the level 35 requirement, sighing. I hadn't been playing for long to be honest.

    Beta is like:
    -All worlds are reset / empty
    -You’re given 20k - 40k gems
    -You also get some items for free such as Phone Booths, Portals, Xeno crystal, etc. (to test if items get affected by various other items)

    Wait, is it like this already? Because this is what I'm suggesting. If people find this fun then there's nothing we can do...

    But if we did not have our stuff we could not try to do possible glitches. For example, how do you make dhorn dupe without phone booth?

    They should give everyone a complete inventory, bar dev-only blocks such as the Blarney Stone and they should only allow people to enter the world that corresponds to their username. Removing all 'fun' aspects of it... Although I guess that would be a mayhem of lag...

    Isn't beta already like that? I wasn't around during the 2nd Beta but the 1st Beta was like that. An empty inventory with nothing, only gems meant for buying the fishing pack.

    Anyways, even if serious, the game is still meant to be fun. Why can't we have a bit of fun in Beta?

    The first beta was very hectic.. swegamerhd set his arm world public, people set collection worlds public, etc. I quit before the following betas but I can't wait to try it this time! Hopefully I meet requirements I'm level 52 and over 1.5k hours..

    The SUPER OLD beta's had worlds and items transfer into the beta server. Which, was amazing but also messy. Some people would forget if theyre on the beta server or not and lose their items.
    But most of the time everyone on the beta server had one big party and rich people gave away their items and i got to wear devil wings for the first time back then and it was truly amazing.

    BUT ever since the fishing pack beta data did not transfer over and all you had was a few gem s, a few test items like Xeno Crystal, and ur growid.

    Fishing pack beta was a little bit fun because some people didnt care about testing the new feature and we just brought clothes packs and locks and went around doing random stuff.

    The other part of the fishing beta was just digging holes for worms and catching fish.
