    Please take my post in the context of a response to the post I quoted. Accusing people wanting the opportunity that other users have of just wanting to play the game and not doing any testing is not supportable, there's no reason to think that Steam users will be any better at that than store users. There is no reason to assume that people who want early access will not be good testers based on where they purchased the game.

    I'm taking it in the context of the overarching conversation which is very much about exactly what I said. This thing about whether or not steam players are or are not good/better testers is a tiny fraction of the conversation which has devolved into entitlement and acrimonious twisting of words into things that people didn't really say. This thread has about run its course and nothing constructive is coming out of it, don't you think?

    I don't see any reason to think that Steam users will make better testers than store users. If you think none of them will be "on the forums a week into the opt-in beta posting screenshots and bragging about playing 1.1 instead of filing bug reports" then please tell us why you think that is so.

    I don't see why it's wrong for store users to want the same opportunity to help test the prereleases as Steam customers. 

    It's not wrong for them to want that opportunity. What's wrong is reacting as though Squad is just arbitrarily singling out Steam players for preferential treatment when the fact is that it's just not feasible to bring non-Steam players into the opt-in at this time.

    @Red Iron Crown (is this what you were pointing to?)
    What I am getting at is at some point at least 24 hour or more before the full release every steam user will DE FACTO have the full release before every other outlet.   Which means they are in fact being treated better.  

    Pretty pathetic that all this is being viewed as is 'early access' instead of TESTING which is the point of the opt-in. To maximize exposure to weed out bugs and speed up the process of getting the game into the hands of the player base.

    Otherwise it sits in Exp for a longer period of testing before the players actually get to play it. Or, worse? More bugs.
