Did anyone get selected for this?


Has anyone has been selected for this focus group?  If so, lets hear from you!  Some emailed screenshots would be awesome and I can share.   You can post anonymously if you are worried about Z2 getting torqued off.  :-D

I've found a copy of the email that is sent for those selected as a beta tester:


Z2 is threatening permanent kicking off from the game if the beta testers take screen shots or reveal details.    Hoping that some of you beta testers will share a few details - Z2 should actually want that.  A little bit of leaked info is good for business and could generate some enthusiasm, and this game is definitely in need of a boost of enthusiasm!

Latest rumor that I'm hearing:  This testing is not actually for Metalstorm but for a similar complimentary game that involves fighter jets but is more cartoonish than MSWM (more like Z2's other games, Battle Nations and Trade Nations).  I sincerely hope that if these rumors are true, that they don't indicate a replacement for MSWM since they state that this is the "next generation of MetalStorm".  If MSWM becomes a cartoonish strategy game, I think they will lose many players.  I will keep updating info as I find it.

  2. Might because you don't have enough number of games played or SR.
    Valid source says the new feature they are working on is ffa team deathmatch.
    Several people were picked in the Metalstorm Fan Club on Facebook.

  3. With Beta testing, there's often a nondisclosure agreement that prevents testers from talking about what they're testing before its release. I have no idea if Z2 is doing that, but if no one comments here about their testing experience for a while, that could be why.

  5. You are asking too much. I think you've gone too far. Why would you expect someone to put the information here and get kicked out?

    However, I'd kind of like to know myself...

  6. Where did you hear of rumors of a new campaign and 2v2 matches? I googled it, and I didn't find anything.

  7. Googling won't help buddy, there are contacts between Z2 and veterans who play MSW and who played MSO.. They get the chance to interact and a very few get the privilege to participate in the beta version. It all sounds interesting.. Let's wait and see..

  9. An ace pilot flying a red widow will always beat an ace pilot flying a reaper or spectre in all circumstances!

    1. I disagree, but Red Widow does win in most cases when using coin missiles.

  10. I used to have a spectre and it was my favorite plane and used to get me tons of kills. But when i brought a red widow it is now my favorite and I kill everything with it it is so overpowered!! I get double the amount of kill with red widow

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow, looks like we have lots of noobs, here. Agility class will always own weapons class if both the pilots have the same skill and ammo because of its higher agility which is the most important thing in a circling dogfight. And by the way, why the Red Widow? There is the Warlock that is better and the Sky Demon which is even better in my opinion! I actually have 23685 Skill Rating so I am enough experienced to say this.

    1. u are right mate that thing ( spectre) or other deadly agility plane are just so dangerous in vs matches

      Delete
    2. I am level 51684 skill rating and I think the Red widow is better than the spectre and reaper because 2 shots and they die while it takes 6 shots from the agility to kill a weapons class.

      Delete
    3. Yeah the Red widow can beat the agility when they respawn and keep on shooting them. My highest score for red widow is 12-0 and highest score for spectre was 7-0.

    5. Haha, stop boasting Abraham. That person was either not playing the best he could or he underestimated you. And many people who use coins are attached to them and have lost their skills. The player you met just had a high skill rating and games because he has been playing since the game came out, and has earned a lot of skill points, just earning an average of +5 Skill Points.

      Agility Class is not better than Weapons Class, but neither is Weapons better than Agility. Get yourselves thinking, people! It's just the fact that agility is easier to use than weapons, due to their high agility and speed.

      Do any of you want to know my Skill Rating?
      I have one account at 72,244 and another at 51,135 and lastly, one at 3,400.

    7. Ugh, haven't we been here before? Everyone is opinionated about the classes of planes and their superiorities (Abe, I think Stan was responding to Skyraza on that one, not you), and even more people like to come here to boast.
      Abe, let's just cut off the argument right here. It's not worth arguing about how good you are; take it to the skies. There's really no point in coming hear to brag about accomplishments, since people don't like to be bragged at and won't take kindly to it.
      Thank you for not spamming the blog.

    8. Just because I have such a high skill rating doesn't indicate I'm a no-lifer. Have you even seen the Chinese player with the highest skill rating? Over 140,000 and over 32,000 games. And you're calling me a no-lifer. Do not let your jealousy control your mind. I do not want to be the best. He hit you because he was using coin weapons, almost causing your death. If he was using standard issue like you, things would've been different. I didn't know you were so retarded until now.

  12. Guys, it really doesn't matter which class is the best. Whichever class works for you is the best for you... I personally prefer agility, but I also fly weapons and defense (rarely).

    It is said by some that the best ace is the one who can adapt to any class of planes and use strategy, instead of sheer statistics and percentages to win the evolving battle. (Plane capabilities are to an extent; a factor of performance)

    So stop this nonsense and get back on topic!!
    I really want a 4 player versus mode... It would boost coin sales as the noobs will need so much more ammo...

    1. Thank you, Benjamin, good to know I'm not crazy.

      4-player versus would be cool, especially since it would prevent those icky 20-minute circling matches from happening. I'm doubtful that Z2 could handle all the players, though, and there might be even more lag than there is now...

  13. Stan the Girl should shut the fuck up.This page isn't for convincing other people that weapon is better than agility class.

    1. I disagree with your word choice but AGILITY IS THE BEST!!!!

    2. Weapons is best! Especially the sky demon it is half and half of both agility and weapons class!

      Delete
    3. Oh my flipping boson, stop it already. We're all done with hearing about which class is the best. You are entitled to your opinion, but you are most certainly not entitled to thrust your opinion in someone's face, which most of you are doing. If a plane works for you, good for you. That doesn't at all mean that it's going to work for everyone, though, so just stop going on about it here and take it to the accursed skies. We really aren't kidding, it's getting really annoying.

  14. You know what would make Metal storm the best dog fighting game ever? Making it 3 bucks up front and no stupid freemuim missiles/jets. Bisnos totally ruin the gaming experience.
