I would like to know if the testers (that were already able to test the DS Floors for several weeks) will be excluded from the special reward to clear floor 5 as first grp. Beeing a tester grants you massive advantages so it would be only fair to exclude them. Otherwise this special price won't make any sense.
Are you out of your mind? The testers work their ass off to provide you with a relatively bug free patch everytime. Haters will say that there are still a lot of bugs and stuff and that may be true, but that doesn't change the fact that a patch without VOLUNTEER testers would be most likely a desaster overall.
So it would be the most unfair thing to do to exclude them from such a price. Especially if you take into account that the price won't even be reachable for you anyway. Testers do not play and learn on test servers, they are out there to find bugs and to ensure the expected behaviour is carried out correctly. Additionally, they don't have their static there. And everything else, knowledge of your class, micro management and knowledge of the bosses up to floor 5 is not an "only-tester-thing".
Conclusion: Cut the BS and don't even try to exclude volunteer testers who give away free time to increase the overall game quality. Be grateful to say the least.
