MCGamer is excited to announce its launch in a Beta development state (AKA the MCGamer Beta Test). This phase of server testing takes place after the Alpha test and will help us further refine the user experience in preparation for MCGamer’s full release.

The Beta test is expected to begin shortly after the closure of the Alpha testing. For the most up to date information as to the estimated date for the Closed Beta Test, please join our MCGamer Discord at https://discord.gg/MCGamer.

An Important Note about Beta:
Please keep in mind that, just like the Alpha test, this Beta release is meant primarily for testing and bug-fixing purposes, so please keep in mind that your experience may not be representative of the final release.
Furthermore, please note that any serious punishments (notably hacking) that are incurred during the Beta will carry over into the final release. So please do not break the rules, since the punishment may stick well past the Beta.

How do I Join the Beta?
Anyone who is interested in joining the Beta is welcome to apply, but note that not everyone is guaranteed entry or immediate access. So if you would like to join the Beta, you must first apply!

Note: Were you a part of the MCGamer Alpha test? You have automatically been granted access to the Beta! You folks can skip these instructions, as your accounts have already been whitelisted for the Beta.

Step-by-step instructions on how to Apply for the MCGamer Closed Beta:
  1. Join the MCGamer Discord (https://discord.gg/MCGamer)
  2. Join the text chat channel called “#bot-playground”.
  3. (If you haven’t already) Link your Discord account to your Minecraft account
    1. In #bot-playground, type the following message and replace <MinecraftUsername> with your Minecraft username: !mclink <MinecraftUsername>
    2. If successful, the XimeBot will reply with a message stating a server address for you to connect to; the address should look something like “######.auth.mcgamer.net”. Copy the address exactly as the bot gave you.
    3. Load Minecraft on the account you gave in the previous step. In the Multiplayer box, select “Direct Connect”.
    4. In the Server Address box, type in the server address that the XimeBot gave you, then hit “Join Server”.
    5. If successful, you should get a message confirming that your Minecraft account has been linked to your Discord account. Your Discord and Minecraft accounts have been linked, and you are now ready for the next step.
  4. Once you have successfully linked your Discord account to your Minecraft account, your Minecraft account should now be whitelisted to join the MCGamer servers.
    1. Join the MCGamer servers by logging into Minecraft and joining this server address: play.mcgamer.net
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to a staff member in the #staff-help text channel of the MCGamer Discord.

What is Available during the Beta?
Since this Beta is intended to be for testing purposes, the Beta will give players access to Minecraft Survival Games and MCSG Solo with a small variety of maps. Furthermore, players will also be able to explore and commune in the MCGamer hub.

What about Final Release?
We currently do not have an ETA for MCGamer’s final release, but we do want to make sure that everything works perfectly before then. For the most up to date information relating to MCGamer and its full release, please join our MCGamer Discord at https://discord.gg/MCGamer.

The real question is when is gamma testing? Omega testing? Epsilon testing? Lambda testing?

Can the ads on the site get toned down a bit? Kinda over the top
Yes, we are making adjustments throughout the day. We have the same ad-zones as before plus if you had an active rank while logged-in prior, some ads didn't display.

Yes I am sure, yet I think our mobile site has some issues displaying some ads we don't want. We are still looking into this to better the experience. If you have any feedback for the forums, please start a conversation in the correct forum and not make this thread off topic: https://mcgamer.net/forums/feature-suggestions.257/

Can you confirm what browser and device you're using, if you're on mobile?

It would be good if once the server will be open the people that have been beta tester, have a chat prefix (or we could call it "rank") "Beta Tester" it would be great!
