What does this have to do with the closed testers???
you have to wonder what the testers were doing all this time. Maybe waiting for release so they could dupe their real gear.

“Actually my post wasn’t toxic towards [x] because [y] always does this”
I… suggested a PT. You know, that would allow literally thousands of players to help test the new content, because the PT servers would be accessible to all (except even during PT, the number is more like hundreds if we’re being generous, and even then a good chunk of those people are just using it to practice halls rushing or w/e, so pardon me if I think your estimate is an insane overestimate).
I find it interesting that instead of arguing for "thousands of players willing… begging to become closed testers as well, you argue to take their place, implying you don’t think the current closed testers should be closed testers any more, instead of these players becoming closed testers side by side with the current ones. This is despite the fact you stated:
I’m sure the issue is that it wasn’t tested at scale
This is completely contradictory to actually helping the game improve.
That’s the most I could respond to that second point with, because your refutation of my argument makes absolutely no sense. All of your complaints are towards what Deca is in charge of and the closed testers have no hand in. The closed testers can’t magically will more closed testers into reality, Deca needs to do that. But somehow instead of raising valid concerns against Deca, you attack the closed testers?
