We have plenty of testers, ultimately anyone can test. What we need to do here is create a system for testers to follow.
God, Family, Baseball, Friends, Rome Total War, and Exilian. What more could I possibly need?

Well for standard campaign testing, I suggest testers make a thread for their current campaign they are testing, and do an AAR-style coverage it. Update every few turns, provide screenshots, write down notable things, as well as first impressions; also report bugs and state opinions freely, accompanied by any possible suggestions etc. :)
As for battles testing, well, a mini AAR of the battle along with the ending stats scroll for all the units would suffice I think, that way we could keep track of the balance of the factions rosters, see if anything stands out either as too underwhelming or overpowered, and put it back to place. :)

I agree with V's suggestion on an AAR-style of coverage. As a tester, it would give me a perfect style to cover and report any bugs and balancing issues.

I like AARs, they're good for putting out on our twitter etc :)
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Alright, I think we should really emphasize testing in the following days. How many of us can beta test?

My rig should arrive by the end of the day, so I am avaliable. I'll just need to re-download the mod.
