Folks, anyone know where these originated as I've never come across them? Found them on a Level 168 player:

Nice, Someone posted a Shuriken of some kind a day or two ago.

Looks like some new items on the horizon. Maybe Scratcher related?, crates?, idk

Looking forward to them though.

I have the strangest feeling monsterhunt is out , and certain people farm them all on the right time .....
That is my speculation , not a fact ..

I remember seeing Golden M4A1s in a few beta tester's inventories shortly before the first event. Going with CC Mark's mention of scratchers soon (didn't he say hopeful early this week??), I reckon these are either scratcher or monster related. The different strengths would make sense with scratchers - kind of like common, uncommon and rare crate items. The really strong items would make sense for monsters if they were 'rare' to find too.

Hello...
Maybe a really really really stupid question, but what's a scratcher and how can I find those? I am lost... Everyone here talks about them, but I have no idea, and I am a VERY regular player.

Sorry if I'm posting a stupid question ;-)

Just read what Fizzle wrote - You dont need to assume anything about Beta testing that may or may not exist :



Scratchers! These are daily items that you can "scratch" to earn bonuses and items. You will get a scratcher each day and you will be able to get anything from gold to exteremely rare items. There will also be limited edition items that will come and go too! You can choose to buy more tickets a day but it's all about luck! You will all have a chance to win a high quality item regardless of whether you pay or not. :)

I just came across that "Ill-Literate" guy in-game. Xclusive is commenting with him right now and from what I read both him and xclusive are ALREADY doing "Scratchers" but this guy has recieved better weapons then X.

I just saw another fellow forum members who picked up close to 10K in stats since I last checked. I thought gold might have been used but when I checked:

Guerrilla Rifle 33 / 20 (86 of them)
Getaway Runner 14 / 25 (vehicle 81 of them)
Fluid Transfer 93 / 57 (vehicle 10 of them)

+ a few other items.

If these items are beta items do they get taken away after being beta tested?

10 Despoilers and 10 Tiger Blades, AMG mentioned earlier. If they were all bought with some kind of gold purchase in Beta whatever the daily lottery ticket turns out to be so be it. On the other hand if this is another glitch / hack or whatever you call it then I will be pissed.

I remember talking with certain forum members when the first event (sig) was in beta. I noticed they had inventory that wasn't available to me... they confirmed that the event was infact in beta, and I could see them on my rival list for the duration (i think)

I haven't seen Scratchers inventory this powerful in Beta, but I suppose it could be there.

Funzio may be the only software company I know of who does QA testing in Production. I'd participate if they asked me, but it's very unusual... probably because it's extremely frowned upon; as in, don't do it. It's a really good way to introduce bad data into a good environment.

They have QA servers as well. Its a multi stage system, they are doing it right.

For this version, they will have too, based on the issues experienced by all testers.

I don't doubt that they have a QA environment, nor do I doubt they are using it for stuff, but testing on Prod is no bueno. The more appropriate method would be to take a Prod snapshot on QA, point all Beta-Tester devices at QA, and have them test/play there. Once the tests are complete, wipe the items/changes the Beta-Testers acquired during testing, point them back at Prod, and reimburse them with gold for their time. That ensures Prod remains pure and QA is a mirror image of Prod, minus strange test data.

To be clear, I'm not upset about this. It just feels dirty using Prod for Beta-testing.

I am only talking about what I have stumbled upon in the actual game. The only thing I can assume as others have is this is actual released content and we are trying to find out how to acquire these new production items.

I have no problem with people not in beta talking about apparent beta items. But beta testers are not suppose to reveal their identity or confirm anything about beta. From this thread alone I've identified several beta testers based on their responses.

You are definitely right IF that stage in some capacity already doesnt exist. In my opinion though you still need a beta or limited rollout on production however. Some things just cannot be fully tested/accounted for until it's mixed into the masses.

PERHAPS the beta version is broken and PERHAPS beta testers are able to get many scratchers per day. PERHAPS a beta tester informed Funzio about this 3 days ago. PERHAPS they're working on it.

Just speculating...PERHAPS.

LOL....that's why perhaps I am not getting too attached to the inventory. It is behaving oddly on my phone, but normally on my iPod, which is kinda odd. I was going to report it tonight but perhaps someone already has....perhaps.

I have not seen any weapons close to as valuable as above, so perhaps that is another glitch.....

This is true. Yahkin, it is actually pretty easy to pick out Beta testers just by change of posting habits that happened over the last few months. I also don't think as a Beta tester they are completely stripped from communicating on the forums. The real problem is that leaving the items in the players production inventory is the real red flag and it is outing them. Nicholost posted how one would expect a test environment to work and it is shocking that isn't the case here.

Perhaps that is a difference between normal and HD version. HD version on I-Pad still has many issues, but is not as choppy as it use to be.

PERHAPS I've seen some items in the 80-90 A/D range. PERHAPS I have not seen anything higher than that. PERHAPS they exist though. PERHAPS it would be extremely difficult to get those high level weapons.

I see what you are saying; bugs and oddities will always come out of nowhere in Prod and take everyone by surprise. However, that's why you take a Prod snapshot on QA; so you test there with Prod-worthy data and scenarios to minimize these to the best of your abilities. Best practice says never test on Prod.

All I'm going to say...and I probably shouldn't even say this much is that beta testers currently have the ability to exploit a MAJOR glitch and could potentially become unbeatable. As far as I know the beta itself is not broken. The problem lies with having 2 versions of the game on one device and switching between them. Funzio is aware of the problem.

That said, I would have NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER if Funzio removed all items gained by beta testers.

Trust me that is what I am afraid of after seeing some of the items in my rivals inventories.
