C3G Playtesting Sign-Ups Seeking New Testers!
 
Highest Priority Playtesting Unit: The Batmobile

What is this thread for?

Every C3G unit is designed to be well-balanced within our game. In order to do that, we playtest every unit multiple times to ensure their point cost and powers are in check. We need your help to playtest our units and make sure they are just as fun an balanced as we envision them.

In this thread, you will find a list of the units currently available for playtesting, as well as resources to make playtesting as easy as possible.


How do I playtest?

Below in the next post, you will find a list of units currently available for playtesting. Each unit will have a number of "Open" slots (each of which can be taken up by one playtester), and a link to the Lead Designer of that unit. If you would like to sign up to test a unit, simply post in this thread indicating which unit you are signing up for. Then, send a Private Message to the Lead Designer asking for the latest version of the design. You can only be signed up for one unit at a time.

Once you've signed up, simply play two complete games of C3G Heroscape using the unit. As you go, fill out the Public Playtesting Form with details about the games and your thoughts on the unit. If you have any questions about the form, check out our Playtesting FAQ. When you finish, send the Lead Designer a Private Message with the completed form, and post back here mentioning that you've finished. Playtest complete!


Do I get any rewards for playtesting?

Yes! C3G operates on a Reward Point system, explained in the Ally and Fan Reward Thread. When you sign-up for a playtest, it is your responsibility to subtract one point from your points total in the Rewards Thread. When you complete a playtest, you can give yourself three points, effectively netting 2 points per test.

You can spend your points to officially design units for C3G, among other rewards. Check out the C3G Reward Shop for more information.

Suspended Units: Occasionally, the C3G Heroes will temporarily suspend a unit while its power level is being reevaluated. Suspended units should not be used in playtests unless specifically requested by a Hero.

Attention Readers: So I will now click on the link to Poison Ivy, and it will take me to her thread, where I can contact the Lead Designer, and ask for the most recent sheet to playtest. In the future, those Design threads will be set to private, but we will have links here to contact the Lead Designer by PM so that you can request the current version to playtest.

PM sent

Do we have to request to playtest our own design? :lol:

Sorry I am a bit confused. Do I request to playtest here and just way for a response from the Lead Designer? Or do I request to playtest here and also send a PM to the Lead Designer requesting to playtest?

I, too, will be playtesting Colossus. *PMs self*

Re: Playtesting Sign-up
 
Just to clarify, here's the process:

1) Post here signing up for an available playtest, as I'm about to:

Sign me up for Poison Ivy, please!

2) The Lead Designer of the design you signed up for will then pm you the latest card (Sir Galahad in this case). However, if it's a public design thread, this is unnecessary and doesn't need to happen (so don't worry about it, Sir G). If it's a future, private design thread, you'll have no other way of seeing what to playtest, though.

3) After you're done with the playtest, you need to get it back to the Lead Designer. If the thread is public, you can just post it in the thread. If the thread is private, you'll need to use a pm or email to the lead designer. :-)

Not request - but sign up, so we know your plans and can update the first post. :-)

Edit: First post updated.

This brings to mind something that may be missing from our rules. If all of our selections and designs are done in private, how would an ally or sidekick know what they can playtest? It seems like there needs to be a public list of "Designs In Progress" (just the name of the figure, no more).
