WIRED - 'Fallout 76' Desperately Needs to Test-Play Its Patches More.
"In response to the latest controversy, Bethesda has canceled a planned livestream, while fans have started asking for something that a lot of games like Fallout 76 already have: a test server. A test server is a specific server of the game set aside for updates to be rolled out early so willing players can serve as testers of the content in a live environment. What I like about this request, and the story in general, is that it shows just how tricky it is to run a massively multiplayer game, and how ignoring the solutions favored by other, bigger games can be ruinous. Especially when folks aren't super happy with your game anyways."
