Beta Testers are selected by the Dev team personally, thus they make no announcements on the forums requesting for testers. Thats because a lot of people think they want to be beta testers, mostly because they think they will able to play the game early, but when they realize the actual work they have to do in dealing with the broken mess before them, they abandon ship.

So the Dev team, with their years of experience in dealing with related issues, take care of the entire process themselves. Don't go to them, they will come to you, considering they see you as dependable and responsible person.

I'd be careful asking for Beta Tester position if you want to be one, because that can hurt your chances, if you beg and whatnot.

I am not to be taken as a trusted source of information. Please disregard if contradicting information is found.

Start to power-idle on TS, so we can get to know you. Talk to us and we will consider giving you small tasks, that doesn't mean you will immediately get access to the build. Then someday if we feel like you could actually be a great addition to the team, since you are reliable, friendly, trustworthy, and you are a cool guy in general we just might make you a full tester. And again being a beta tester is not as fun as you might think. You are like an assistant to the DEVs it's not like you play the game tell us it's broken and that's it. Well just my two cents.

But, as far as I remember, being a tester actually requires somewhat of a commitment. A lot of us had to step down simply because we couldn't get to the meetings due to work or school. And I wouldn't expect to go into it and see an amazing game just waiting to be released. It's still a work in progress.

We should form a club.
