Just a question. If so I wanna beta test lol
The last couple of beta cycles (that I’m aware of) were totally open. In previous versions testers had the opportunity to try out new features and stuff before general release, which sounds fun, but some beta programs I’ve participated in were pretty brutal (UI missing things, bad, bad crashes) - it’s a lot sexier sounding on paper than it is in practice.
So no, in my experience doing this here, lately at least, packs were not available sooner, while features are, though the last two betas have been open invite.
