#27 - Almost out? We've got three months until we ship. Rest assured, beta tester feedback WILL be used and is essential to balance multiplayer. There are a lot of little variables (weapon balance, speed, power; gravity; vehicles) that need to be tweaked just right and can't without hundreds or thousands of people exploiting the system to get an edge.
you have an indefinite amount of time after the game is released to make gameplay tweaks. obviously you don't need to fix everything in beta.
oh wait you're going to have to use that time to deal with CTD bugs for months after the game is released. nm, perhaps you do know something about tribes after all.
