Why do they call it alpha version? Mods shouldn't have alpha/beta versions, they should only two versions - Not released and Released. There is no point saying "this is an alpha version so expect many bugs", it's not like that in 2 month, a commercial version will come out... If for some reason they insist on using those terms, it should be something like this: 1. Alpha - Still a major WIP, most features/art/maps are not yet done 2. Beta - Most major features/art/maps are done, currently doing internal testings 3. Gold - Released.--RP 15:49, 12 Jan 2007 (PST)

i disagree. this alpha is still very WIP and far away from feature-complete. but without a dozen servers and many players they wouldnt find so much bugs!
MOD's don't have the benefit of large QA departments. They depend on the public to play test it and provide feedback, that they can then use to feed back into the MOD via updates. It's the whole idea of a "Community". ;) Not only that, but they don't get it on their own time, need the publicity to attract more and better talent. Release early, release often is the MOD decree. Holy OT Batman. I suggest we delete all of this and talk about II --Narfig 14:22, 30 Jan 2007 (PST)
alpha = features to come. beta = feature complete. every mod needs BOTH words: 1:alpha,beta or final, 2:released or not released. Leopard84 00:54, 28 Mar 2007 (PDT)
