Adding a tester rank would create bias and inconsistency in character testing. Not every tester could be at the same skill level. This is the exact issue every other server that does it this way has, along with a plethora of other issues plaguing their server by having multiple testers. I am enough to test people, people need to also cooperate with me so that testing is done.
We already have a hard time getting people into existing positions and supplying existing positions more jutsu. It will not grow competitiveness if people aren’t able to get characters to begin with. More characters is not more gameplay, it’s more convolution. Adding characters wouldn’t make existing gameplay better, it would just further stretch the issues stated above.
At the end of the day, character positions are not content and we work to provide things that aren’t just characters. I would rather improve the quality of the character positions we have now than artificially inflate the amount of characters we have.
We have a lot of clans that can go for the existing characters and in the future, a lot more will be allowed to go for existing characters as well.
Just because we can do something now doesn’t mean we should. We’re still a live server with active gameplay and changes.
Character systems in the server’s update are not finalized so it’s not safe to say they’re removed as of yet.
