Custom Unit Playtesting Exchange

Hi Everyone,

The thought occurred to me while working in my role as playtester within the C3V project as a way to generate more playtesting interest is to offer myself as a playtest exchange ambassador. The idea is if you playtest a unit from my project, then I will playtest a unit from your project. I have had, in my opinion, success working with the AotV custom team and thought it would be reasonable to expand.

But clearly this isn't something that should be restricted to just me or c3v, so I thought this could be a forum where people could exchange interest in the program and propose what units of their own or their own projects to be tested and hopefully find interest from other designers who are hungry to get their own units in the hands of others and receive feedback.

Specifically I think this would be a great way for individual custom designers to get feedback on their customs and a solid way to get them played by other individuals, which I think is something that would be pretty cool.

What I anticipate this thread being is people posting their willingness to playtest someone's unit and also posting what they would like tested. (specific matchups, point totals, or armies can be specified) I am only planning on keeping this OP updated with a list of people who have expressed interest in the program. I will not be policing this so hopefully everyone who says they will do a playtest will indeed do so and in a timely manner.

Sample Exchange:
-Person A says I want this tested (like kevindola with Cal the Smuggler or Kolakoski with his units)
-Person B says 'I'll test that for you and you test this' (like Flash with Agent Dashe)
-Ideally they both give a relative time frame it will be accomplished

Here is the rough expectation of the playtest resport used for c3v public playtest and should be a solid baseline:

Spoiler Alert!


That's it. Hopefully the community will find this idea useful, and if not, well no harm done. Happy Scaping

Re: Custom Unit Playtesting Exchange

Put me down as a playtester. I don’t get a lot of time for ‘scape and really don’t expect any testing in return but anyone is free to return the favor.

No supers, please. I don’t know anything about that part of ‘scape, so I can’t gauge how good somethimg might be.

Re: Custom Unit Playtesting Exchange

This is crazy. I literally had the same thoughts of this with almost the same title as I started to post it. I didnt finish my post because I wasnt sure how well recieved it would be as it isnt SoV or C3V oriented in my mind. I also wasnt sure how the whole exchange would go down. I basically wanted a place to get units tested and would be willing to test others in return. I think if this idea gets fleshed out a little more it could be pretty great. Possibly a points or reward system between people testing units?

Id be interested in having units tested having a generic 500pt army using only other tested and validated units. (Original, C3V, SoV, and HoSS)
Id like to also figure up a points system to keep the amount of testing between units here somewhat balanced. And as always proxies are encouraged.


Put me down for this.

The idea of a points system is a good one, although I'm not sure it will be strictly required. I'm hoping it won't be actually. Just propose a unit to be playtested (maybe with armies) and wait for someone to accept.

With that said, I can start the ball rolling. Looking for a playtest exchange for Cal the Smuggler vs. a mostly normal ranged army

Just so you know, that link takes me to a no permission page. I'd take you up, but I still have work to be doing tonight since it's the end of the work week and I don't have enough hours. Maybe tomorrow.

Thanks, the link is corrected. Just let me know what unit you'd like tested in exchange. Thanks

I'd be happy to do a playtest or maybe even 2 some time this week for you. In exchange, I'd love a playtest on my custom Agent Dashe in this post here. I'd probably prefer she be tested against units you'd be more likely to see at a tourney - like B or higher on the power rankings.
