Open and Closed Beta Gaming – Playing Ahead of People

What is the difference between open and closed beta?

Nowadays in video games, developers put out an open beta for players to experience game and provide feedback. Closed betas contains number of bugs performance and release to a restricted group by invitation.

When the final version comes out you will see player a higher rank than you. For example, open betas like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Paladins: Champions of the Realm, Paragon, 7 Days to Die, Brawlhalla and more. I like to use a anime example Sword Art Online’s Kirito, Kirito was a beta tester for SAO and he level up so fast that other players despise him.
