It's new build and it need to to be mass tested. What's so hard to understand?
Are you suggesting they should release new build without testing it first?
Well since the Arena Commander is hardly a complete game and is updated on a regular basis and is actually an Alpha itself then...yes. There is no point to this other than as pure marketing BS. They appear to be giving 'something' new to the community while in fact they are giving them just another newer build of the Arena Commander.
Or this build could be to unstable, and rather than deal will 700.000 angry nerds on forums, they allow everyone to opt-in.
If it's bad - sorry, play on older version you already have installed in diffrent category, if it's good, everyony will download it next time.
Why do you guys have so much problem with that?
I don't get the confusion either. They already had people beating the crap out of them for the problems the slightly rushed 1.0 release had (which was a mandatory upgrade for everyone), so the "PTU" or whatever approach now gives backers an optional way to test an unfinished / potentially very broken build without it being forced on all the other backers before it's ready. What's the problem?
