Another small scale test

[Update: This test is over. Most of what was tested is now present on Weewar.com. Thanks to all of you who helped]

If you’d like to help us putting the next (smallish) update through its paces before we deploy it to the life system head over to test.weewar.com. If you have already taken part in such a test your previous user account should work. Please note that regular Weewar accounts do not work on test. If you want to join the testing ranks let us know.

    What kind of change are you testing?  Awww… I don’t even care.  If another account on your test servers lets me play more WeeWar, count me IN!

    I’ve submitted a request here:

    Loving the fact I am a tester and trying out the new maps, however my question is this:  I know Pro account generate revenue to fund this brilliant and promising land of bloodshed, but on the test server wouldn’t it be an idea to allow non-pro players to build pro units to fully test?  Just a thought.

    @Peteinaki: You bring up an interesting point (and no, I’m not part of the WeeWar team).  I’m not sure how WeeWar is generating revenue.  There’s no Google ads, or any other type of advertisement on the WeeWar website, in the invitation or update emails, or at any point in the game.  I’ve been thinking about how a site like this generates revenue and I don’t quite understand it yet.  Then again, WeeWar is technically still in invitation-only Beta, so maybe there’s more to come on that.

    Still, I think your original point is a good one.  It would be nice to have Pro abilities on the Test server.  Though it’s possible that users would flock to the Test server and overload it, just to play with a Pro account. 

    I got invited to a Test game once, by a Pro Test user and I had access to all the other units – it was mind boggling!  I’m sure that if/when I get invited to a Pro game on the regular server that I will get killed!  Although if you check my stats (userid: mwlundberg on the regular and test servers), I doubt that I’ll get that invite anytime soon.

    On the regular Weewar server the ratio between pro and reg accounts is roughly 1/150. On test it is more like 1/1. Test is subject to much greater changes anyway (right now there is no test running) so this distribution is likely to change in the feature.

    Note to all: This test is over. Stay tuned for the next one.
