Participation in the Magic Online Closed Beta test is voluntary. Any feedback you provide to Wizards will remain strictly confidential. The descriptions and findings of this testing may be used to help improve Magic Online. At no time, however, will your name or any other personal identification be used. You are at liberty to withdraw your consent to participate in the Beta test and discontinue participation at any time without prejudice by contacting us here.
All players accepted into the Magic Online Closed Beta must read and agree to be bound by the Magic: The Gathering Online User Agreement and Software License, the Beta Conduct and Competitive Play Policy (found below), and the general Wizards of the Coast Code of Conduct. Players who are accepted into the Magic Online Closed Beta must keep the nature and content of this Beta test confidential. We would like to remind all Beta users that participation in the Magic Online Closed Beta is a privilege, and failure to follow the policies above may result in your removal from the current Beta test, prohibit you from participating in future Beta tests, and can result in administrative action against your production Magic Online account.
CLOSED BETA CONDUCT AND COMPETITIVE PLAY POLICY:
- Be respectful of other Beta testers. Name calling, taunting, and intentionally disconnecting from matches are unacceptable. While the Beta environment is more relaxed than the live game environment, players must still follow the Wizards of the Coast Code of Conduct found at: http://company.wizards.com/conduct
- Playing to win is okay; playing to win at all costs is not. Competitive play (both constructed and limited) is encouraged, but the goal is to test card interactions and not fine tune tournament decks. Decks should be designed to create common and uncommon game states, not win without interactions.
- Be respectful of players' time. Don’t join an event if you know you don't have time to finish. If something comes up and you have to leave, please inform your opponent, concede the game or match, and then drop from the event.
- Report all issues. If you find something you suspect is a bug or design issue, try to gather steps to reproduce the issue and report it (especially if it is not on the known issues list). In addition, if you feel someone is not following the Code of Conduct, report it.
- Focus on multiplayer when possible. Multiplayer matches create many interactions and are very valuable for testing. Please prioritize multiplayer above other types of play.
- Keep the Beta confidential. Streaming the Beta, posting screenshots from the Beta, or openly discussing the contents of the Beta is not permitted and will result in you being banned from the Beta.
- Beta is a privilege. Any infraction of the rules above may result in the loss of your Beta privileges. Enforcement of the rules above is at the sole discretion of Wizards of the Coast and its employees.
By applying for the beta, you are confirming you have read and accepted the Magic: The Gathering Online User Agreement and Software License, the Closed Beta Conduct and Competitive Play Policy (above), and the Wizards Code of Conduct and would like to apply for the Magic Online Closed Beta.
