The new beta dashboard official forums make me weep for humanity

Everyone criticizing Microsoft for bugs or issues. To quote someone "Do some bug testing next time".

Do they not realise that they are the bug testers..? That's what they've signed up for.

The concept of "beta test" is foreign to them. A game "going gold" to them most likely means the game sold a large number of copies already.

The concept of "a beta" has been lost on the gaming community. It now means a privilege to those elite few who deserve to get their hands on it before the masses do. That's how the gaming community as a whole views betas now.

And "free demos." That's how 99% of MMO betatesters view a beta now.

I too, am a huge fan of the original Xbox and Xbox 360, but I simply have no interest in the Xbox One. Saying that will get you attacked no matter what, usually with people calling you a Sony or Nintendo fanboy. I've given up trying to reason with Microsoft fanboys, and just any fanboys in general.

Also, yeah it's pretty funny how the beta testers are reacting. A good beta tester would note down any bugs, and report them to Microsoft. Instead, we see people whining and crying, all because they don't understand what participating in a beta means.

That's what I was hoping to do, but putting in a detailed account of a legitimate issue I've had there is just like a drop in an ocean. A dirty ocean.

To be honest, I can see why some of them might say that after what happened 2 days ago when they rolled out an update for the Beta users that killed connectivity for EVERYBODY world wide. and it took them half the day to fix instead of just rolling back the update the instant the problems popped up.

In that case, someone really DID need to do some testing (at least on an internal network) to make sure than the functionality was kept separate between beta users and non-beta users.

Live itself never went down 2 days ago, but that Beta rollout effected game startup across ALL games and produced all kinds of other problems.
