As someone who took part in the factions Beta the first thing I noticed when invited to the discord was aside from myself there were only staff and only 1 factions members. Eventually names were thrown around to pull in more players but in my opinion not enough were allowed in. I personally don't think it should be a secret or not to the extent it was or is for current ongoing Beta's. Here is my propitiation for closed Beta's allow anyone of Invader or God rank to opt in to participate in the closed Beta. This can be done by simply making a forum post visible to those ranks and they can post a reply with their IGN in it to be white listed or just give a special rank in the Beta discord so they can click an emote to opt in. The reason I'm proposing this is simple the faction Beta lacked members and there were definitely more people who would of been willing to help. By allowing players who hold some monetary value in the server in this case a high priced rank we widen our Beta participation while reducing the risk to some extent as someone with a rank is both more inclined to care for the server and at the same time they have something to risk themselves. Obviously nothing is a guarantee but with all the major changes and revamps coming to a lot of the servers I believe this to be the best course of action. I'd also like to clarify that I'm not pushing for Closed Beta's to be for Invader and God rank only just that they are allowed to sign up and participate because of their rank, aside from that nothing would change in the selection process. Obviously anyone who is seen abusing this privilege should be reprimanded and banned from participating in any further Beta's. This would also hold a nice incentive as far as purchasing either of the highest 2 ranks, especially when listed in the webstore.
