Depends on what level the beta is at and usually pro testers give MUCH better reports then do new players. I've seen all the "i can't play the game" bug reports I ever want to see
Sometimes the "I can't play the game" responses can be useful feedback for streamlining UI and such. A pro can't always tell you how clear a game's layout appears.
No it doesn't, DF got a shitty UI because the developer didn't care about it.
And given that Paradox said people were chosen based on their technical aspects, aka computer setups, I don't really understand the discussion. It's a hardware test, to see what works and doesn't.

You can always check out my reborn twitter attempt: @BjornB_pdx - it kind of sucks though. But sometimes there is interesting/useful info there
Either way – I like the way this is shaping up. It should mean a very good Beta phase and in the end will mean a much better game.

Why would he care that the UI is shitty? I think that question answers itself.
I have programmed multiple open source programs that get used by a couple of thousand people and one also got packaged for archlinux.
I have done Skyrim Mods and some for other games but I don't go into forums and tell people to accept me into a beta because I am the ubar master hacker...
That's quite some attitude and you should lose it . Just my 4 gold.
Doesent help to complain, but having been around for years and registered a tons of games and never got into a beta before on a signup except through a contest leaves me disapointed but not angry. If they pick their testers based on hardware, then I guess its useless to have a high end computer because it will run anything.
The reason why most productions don't do this 'declined e-mail' stuff is because they put your application on file in case they need to use it later.
