I’ve noticed a lot of people on blogs and forums complaining about the Mists of Pandaria beta. They don’t like the fact that it crashes a lot and that they can’t get stuff done. In fact, I’ve noticed similar complaints from beta testers for other products (even internally at the company at which I work).
First, if you’re complaining that you can’t actually test anything because the client crashes, you’re missing the point. That’s part of the test. Yes, it works for most people, but it doesn’t work for all. That’s important data.
Second, someone posted saying that his client crashes every minute. Someone else replied saying that the original poster was lucky. The new poster couldn’t play for more than 10 seconds without it crashing, and he’s tried repeatedly. Here’s a tip. Stop trying until the next build.
Get your addictions in check. If you’re on a diet, it’s okay to sometimes indulge. But either have that snack (and make sure it’s okay to do so) or don’t have it. Please don’t stare at the snack drooling and panting like a dog in heat.
You can always play when it releases.
