It was just as much a marketing ploy as it was a test. Do you want a reward for succumbing to marketing? They are giving it out in waves.

I was lucky enough to be a full time beta tester. I say lucky, because while I would love you to believe that it as my mad skills that earned me a beta invite, it was really just random luck. BW pulled my name out of a hat.

To answer you question: No, there was no gift like you are thinking I.e. No pet, no title etc. It was cool to play for free for months and feel like you had a small part in making this game great, and I'm sure most ft testers will agree, that was pretty cool by itself.

Cheers,
Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess. I expect to be well paid. *I'm* in it for the money.

This. Being able to try the game way before release is the reason why most people apply for beta at all, including myself. The glee when you receive your beta invitation, install the client, and hop into the game weeks or months before release is the reward.

Of course not. None of the general testers got anything except the time to beta tester. It was annoying seeing people even ask for this in general beta every single time new people came to test.

The beta test was the reward... remember how you felt when you first got to log in?..

Thats it.

Beta testers getting a reward when the game goes live is nuts..

The reward we get is a game that is almost bug and lag free on day one (in four days time). Anyone in the beta should think of it as time invested to enhance the game they are likely going to be playing for the next 5+ years

If BW decided to give us a little something like beard trimmers for the severe uberbush that my Sage currently has hanging from his chin I wouldn't say no
