Ok some of you have asked how do we feel about the use of this or other similar tools to help in testing of the product. We mulled it around here and this is our answer

Go ahead and use the tool but always keep these points in mind.

1. Remember your NDA's. while chatting away be mindful of giving out information that is of the most serious nature. Like Ftp addresses and login information, account information, story line information. etc. If this information needs to be relayed, please use the in game chat or message feature.
2. Dont stop testing with the in game voice chat. The last thing we want is for our beta community to stop using an important feature. Its by your recommendations and/or frustrations that allows us to see what areas we need to change or put some attention to. This also lets us know if by normal gameplay a puzzle cannot possibly be completed by conventional communication methods.
3. Minimize the risk of someone accidentally hearing your conversations by putting a password or limiting the use of the channels to people you know that are in the rehearsal.
4. If you use a tool like this, remember that it take additional resources and bandwidth to run. In effect this could cause adverse reactions to the game. Be very mindful when writing up a bug while using any 3rd party applications while testing/playing the game.

So in all, we see the advantage in coordinating test strategies with a tool like this and if you feel that you can adhere to those points above then go for it.

Happy testing
