Benionin, the OldTimer. Has a nice ring to it (in spite of the possible connotations of the other (less positive) Oldtimers from Dragonriders of Pern, which I imagine people wouldn't make the connection to anyway).

Oldtimers for the win!

To be honest, I don't care for any of them, but I don't have much of a suggestion. I would prefer something that actually shows that we beta tested and not something that could be opened up to everyone. Most the titles here seem like something that would be cool to give out to everyone. Not just beta testers. Beta testers should have a title that implies that they Beta tested.

I like Vertu's suggestion that it has to be a title that shows we were beta testers.

Therefore, I submit the following title. _____ , Who Helped Eat Justin

I really like the title "Other, I wrote it in the comments". Ohaz Other, I wrote it in the comments. Has a nice ring to it. Kappa

Serious mode now: Nice titles :) But then I'll have to choose between using the title only 3 people have (Captain) and the beta title :D

Title: Re: Beta Tester Titles
Post by: Mysterion on August 27, 2014, 10:00:14 AM
I like soul of the old world myself. A beta tag instead of a title would work too. Perhaps instead of a title we can put whatever you give us over our avatars instead like someone else  suggested? I like that idea more and it would standout.

A little off topic, but since we are talking about titles are you guys considering giving us prefixes, suffixes and middle word titles that we can combine? With so many titles it would be worth it imo.

Example: I won the crewman title. I would have loved to use crewman Vexbane, who nobody likes as a title.... lol Makes it much more fun.

OK, while I really like Witness to the Calamity (i.e. either The Great Doubling or any of the times things got completely and utterly screwed up by bugs etc)... titles aren't any good if they have to be explained to people. I have to go with Beta Tester.

I don't play this particular card often these days but I used to be a moderator elsewhere. Only some time after I rose to that position, all the worthwhile titles for people were changed. Admin/Owner -> Chancellor is one thing, but we became... Chambermaids. True story. Besides being demoralizing, it doesn't really specify that we have the power to ban people. Its confusing. Even if it was just a massive inside joke.

Just saying. I like plain speak sometimes.

Just saying. I like plain speak sometimes.

While I do desire to have a title that clearly state "hey, I beta tested," any other title over time would be eventually recognized as such. People will come to the realization that "insert title" = beta tester. I prefer to have it somewhat reclusive. "Beta One" is a good one and Witness to the Calamity has a nice ring.

I imagine most of us, if implemented, will sport this title when the game goes gold. It'd be a bit odd for all the new players to play against a bunch of over-leveled, experienced veterans calling themselves beta testers; be a bit intimidating no? In most games, beta testers don't get to keep their stats so I don't want newbies coming thinking this game gives unfair advantage to certain groups etc.
Title: Re: Beta Tester Titles
Post by: Shimrra3 on August 27, 2014, 02:52:30 PM
That... is all true. Maybe give us Beta Tester AND Witness to the Calamity and we can switch out for the more intimidating one later.
Title: Re: Beta Tester Titles
Post by: The_Fallen on August 27, 2014, 03:12:46 PM
I second "survivor of the endless turns." But maybe this title will be valid even for people playing the gold version.
Beta one has a nice ring to it.

titles aren't any good if they have to be explained to people.

That is actually a very good point. I mean, it's cool to have a cool title, but if you have to explain it everytime... it'll get annoying... fast.

Now that I think about it, maybe a 'title' isn't the best way to show we beta tested the game. I think a very smal badge in the lower right corner of the avatar (like on top of the avatar itself, but in a corner so as not to bother) would be more interesting to be honest. It could say 'Beta Tester' and that would make it clear to everyone, and unique to all of us.

That is actually a very good point. I mean, it's cool to have a cool title, but if you have to explain it everytime... it'll get annoying... fast.

While I agree with the sentiments above, in practicality and realistically, no one has ever asked me about my titles/borders/character insignia and I didn't feel inclined to ask when I saw my first rainbow bordered opponent. You know why? Because I'm about to play a game and what went through my mind was, "Oh Puff, this guy is good..."

Here's the order my eyes get drawn to:

Character picture -> Border -> the giant badge right below -> all the other badges -> the guy's name -> title

I don't mind something that hints to being in beta but "beta tester" is not very creative and can create a false sense of authority. I, personally, prefer "Beta One." It is simple & clean ;) , hints at being beta player, reference to alpha one and its not cool enough where everyone here now will keep forever and always.

I can see "Beta One" as a title that everyone sport at the beginning to help new players etc. and later switch it out for more personalized titles. For example, my character is candit and if there is a title called "The Seductress," I'd use it XD
