Hello and welcome!

Welcome to the Alpha Testing Applications thread! As you all know we have been on the lookout for people to take part in an alpha testing mechanism in our early stages to ensure that we can iron out any bugs and ensure we have a working server ready for beta testing. However, just getting on the server to have a play around is not the only part of alpha testing; we need alpha testers to be able to provide us with detailed feedback of what they think should be changed and be able to write up in detail any bugs they find. This means that alpha testers must have a good understanding of old IslandClash as well as strong ideas for what it should be like moving forward.

There are some other attributes we are looking for in alpha testers:

  • Maturity
  • Activity – not necessarily always sending messages in discord but that one has enough time to fulfill the tasks needed of alpha testers
  • Commitment
  • Knowledge of IslandClash
  • Most Importantly a desire to improve IslandClash and make it as best as it can be.
Of course, this is not a comprehensive list of everything we are looking for, but it does show the foundation and key elements.

We have had an amazing – and unprecedented – 84 people, and counting, contact us about taking part in alpha testing. However, we can unfortunately not take on board all of you. We are looking for a small, very dedicated and committed group of passionate players who are willing and able to put some of their time in helping us to deliver a server you will all love to play on. Therefore, we have an alpha application process for everyone interested in taking part to complete. As one of the key aspects of alpha testing will be being able to provide detailed feedback and being able to directly suggest to us your suggestions we have designed our application format in such a way so that you can show off your ability to do so.

The Format:
Part 1:

Minecraft In Game Name:

Discord Name and ID e.g (Test#0000):

Age:

Timezone:

Are you able to record Minecraft:

Are you able to/have a microphone to use Discord voice:

When did you start playing IslandClash?


Part 2:

1) If there was one thing you could change about the IslandClash discord what would it be? State and explain in depth with sufficient detail and analysis of your suggestion.

2) If there was one thing you could change about the IslandClash forums what would it be? State and explain in depth with sufficient detail and analysis of your suggestion.

3) If there was one thing you could change about the IslandClash pre overhaul warfare system
what would it be? State and explain in depth with sufficient detail and analysis of your suggestion. (If you started playing IslandClash post overhaul you may do post overhaul warfare or look at universal aspects of warfare such as degradation)

4) If there was one medium sized feature
- such as a new mechanic or new buildings or something similar - that you could change and add, what would it be? State and explain in depth with sufficient detail and analysis of your suggestion.

5) Any other suggestions and thoughts (not required - focus on providing in depth answers to 1-4)


Part 3:

Anything else you would like to tell us? You might want to address why you would fit the alpha tester role, exploring traits you think would make you an effective alpha tester.
This application format has been designed to be open ended and allow for people to write as much as they want. Of course, due to the high demand we will only be able to pick the very best applicants. Since there will be no opportunity to re-apply we advise you make your application as good as you can to give you the best chance.

Do not worry if you have not written any applications before or you feel like it is not something you’re very good at; we want to see whether you can talk in depth about suggestions and are creative and able to come up with innovative suggestions and be able to see both positives and negatives within them. We are looking for original, creative and innovative ideas on how to improve the IslandClash experience; we are giving you the chance to take a new look on each aspect of IslandClash and have another think about what we could do.

Information:

- We do not have a set age requirement; however, we expect all alpha testers to be able to act in a mature fashion.

- There is no re-application process. You only have one chance – so do your best!

- If you ask a member of Staff to look at your application for tips, anything you could improve/add it will be instantly denied. You will get a response to your application even if you are denied.

- If you have not yet received or sent a message to/from me regarding alpha testing on discord or the forums then please do so before submitting your application at Only2feet#5321 on discord or through the forums.


- The deadline for applications is 5th April 2019 at 17:00 GMT.

Final Details:

We look forward to hearing from all of you who are interested in alpha testing; we’ve been blown away by how many of you have indicated your interest. This not only is an excellent opportunity to experience IslandClash in its early stages of rejuvenation but also to show us all your suggestions for how to improve IslandClash and we will consider implementing those that we feel are compatible with the server and our aims as well as improving the IslandClash experience.



Good Luck!

Have any questions and or concerns? Feel free to message me on the forums or Discord. I’d be happy to help! Good luck!
