Beta Tester ____ (simple)

____, Beta One (a nod to Alpha One)

____, who Waited

____, who Witnessed Change

Trailblazer ____

Just ideas I'd like to share.

I like the '____, Beta One' as much as my current vote (Soul of the Old World).

We Kickstarter Closed Beta testers get special special titles right schumi? ;)

Or maybe even personalized ones since there's so few of us left. ^_^

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.

A nice special badge or avatar would be nice to show we beta tested the game. :P

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

What about red word "BETA" over our avatars? Not in the middle, of course :P

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.

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.

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.

Still waiting. Hope declining.

At first I was going to state my own, but Witnessess of the Calamity sounded WAY too badass.
