I don't know if you just have zero game testers, or if they just plain do nothing all day - but something needs to change. You are losing lots of players who don't want to leave. I don't want to stop, but you are making it very hard to stick around. No matter what update you release, it brings more bugs.

Why don't you just contact the most active players, and ask them to be game testers? I'm sure they would be happy with free ironite as payment. You have a lot of smart players, and a lot of them are very active. Why not give them first crack at each update, or preliminary update to avoid the whole community blowing up the forums?

I just don't get how it's possible to have everything messed up every time if you in fact test these things before releasing.
