Gran Saga: Unlimited — 2nd Tester Recruitment Announcement
Find out how we’re recruiting the 8,000 testers for the 2nd GSU Community test and more!
A t the end of March, we successfully completed the 1st Community Test of Gran Saga: Unlimited, thanks to the many fans who showed their support and love for METAPIXEL and GSU.
During the first round of testing, all testers averaged 11 hours and 18 minutes of playtime, and the top 200 testers averaged 21 hours of playtime, making it an exciting three days!
The entire METAPIXEL team would like to thank everyone who participated in the testing event in any way. We had testers who explored the game with utmost enthusiasm. We also had testers who continued to report bugs and errors to our development team to help us improve the game. Even the community members who were unfortunately not selected as testers this time still showed their enthusiasm by participating in community events such as Gartic with LUMINA.
Although the 1st Community Test was planned to be a small-scale test aimed at sharing a taste of the game we are developing with the community for the first time, we had a lot more people sign up to participate than we initially expected.
We are sorry that we couldn’t include everyone who wanted to test Gran Saga: Unlimited the first time. That’s why we are preparing the 2nd Community Test on a larger scale than before. In this announcement, we would like to share with you the approximate timeline and recruitment method for the second round of testing.
For the 2nd Community Test of Gran Saga: Unlimited, there will be a total of 8,000 tester slots available.
Each selection method will be allocated a portion of the 8,000 slots. Please note that the concrete numbers of allocated slots for each method are TBA.
#1 METAPIXEL Member Draw: Anyone who has signed up on METAPIXEL can apply for the draw via the METAPIXEL website or launcher.
#2 METAPIXEL Early Adopter NFT holder draw: Verified owners of the Early Adopter NFT can apply for the draw via entry form.
#3 Zealy Top 1000: Top 1000 XP based on the METAPIXEL Zealy leaderboard will be granted a tester slot.
#4 Be a Pioneer: Participants of the 1st Community Test who reached Lv. 15 or higher and completed the Be a Pioneer quest will be guaranteed a tester slot.
#5 Access Codes: These will be given to METAPIXEL’s partners for distribution, including gaming guilds and streamers.

3) METAPIXEL Zealy/Crew3 XP Top 1000
Please note: Crew3 has recently rebranded to Zealy. All previous Zealy/Crew3 account information and XP remains unchanged.
Since the 1st Community Test could only accommodate 500 testers, there were sadly many members who couldn’t participate in the test even though they were passionate members of the METAPIXEL community.
Official METAPIXEL Zealy Site: https://zealy.io/c/metapixel/
Therefore, for this test we will allocate 1000 tester slots based on the METAPIXEL Zealy XP Leaderboard, which will help more passionate community supporters gain access to the 2nd Gran Saga: Unlimited test.

- The Zealy Top 1000 selection pool excludes the 297 people who completed the Be a Pioneer quest, as they are already guaranteed access to the 2nd test.
- Please note that the Zealy Top 1000 selection will not be an exact match of the METAPIXEL Zealy Leaderboard, as users may not be eligible or choose not to apply, in which case the next highest ranked member takes their place.
