Who is the Board of Beans?
The Board of Beans (or BoBs as they are affectionately known!) are an esteemed group of players that we turn to for feedback, advice and valued opinions to help us shape the future of Fall Guys! They tell us what they love (and don’t love so much…) through surveys, research panels or taking part in Beta playtests.
Why would I want to join the BoBs?
To gain our everlasting gratitude for helping us make Fall Guys as great as it possibly can be? The satisfaction of seeing your feedback change the game for the better?
Okay, okay, so you’re asking about the hard goods…
So, there are definitely rewards for participation, but remember that they vary and are subject to change at any time.
Some examples include:
- In-game rewards
- Access to limited Betas
- Sneak peeks of pre-release features and content
We’ll be sure to let you know beforehand if participation comes with goodies. The more valuable your participation, the more likely you’ll be invited for the most exclusive opportunities.
How do I sign up to join the BoBs?
We organise game-wide surveys at each major Fall Guys content release, such as new Seasons. In each survey, we’ll ask if you’re interested in becoming a member of the BoBs. This is your moment!
Can I join the BoBs if I’m under 18?
Unfortunately not, friend. We’re looking into whether this could change in the future, but for now you need to be 18 or over to join the BoBs.
Fall Guys Betas FAQ
I was part of the Beta Squadron and now you’re telling me I need to be a BoB?
Yep, the Fall Guys Beta Squadron is no longer—time for the BoBs to shine! We’ve invited all of you beans to join the BoBs.
This does not guarantee access to all Betas as the requirements for access are changing! Your invitation to the BoBs has many different exciting aspects, not just playtests.
Okay, but my Beta Squadron Key no longer works and I want to be in the Beta…
We get that! However, the way we’re organising playtests has changed to enable us to get them running as efficiently as possible and achieve the most useful results possible for Fall Guys. That may mean we limit certain Beta participation per platform or region.
When you sign up to the BoBs, you’ll receive a form to complete. For the chance to participate in future betas, you must complete the form with all of the required information and agree to the legally binding NDA and all relevant Terms.
The majority of former Beta Squadron members should have now received keys! If you have not, please check these possible reasons:
- You’re based outside of the EU/NA region -We’ll be extending this out soon! But for now, Fall Guys Betas are currently for EU/NA players only.
- You don’t have a valid Support ID mapped to PC - Currently, we’re running PC-only Betas. PlayStation players, we see you and your time is coming!
- You’ve not opted-in on the form - If you do not select the ‘opt-in’ for us to contact you, we cannot send you a Beta key! It’s the GDPR rules.
I want to play with my friends though!
We totally get that it can be disappointing if you have friends invited to a playtest when you’re not!
Please remember, Beta playtests only run for a short amount of time and we’ll continue to try and extend participation as much as we can. But sometimes, not everybody is going to make it in.
My new Beta key was revoked. What happened?
It depends! Here are some possibilities
- Incorrect Support ID - There could be a typo, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to update it.
- No feedback - Our number one priority is to find out how players feel about the playtest. With space limited, we may revoke Beta access if we do not receive game feedback
- Violating the NDA/Beta Agreement - Breaching either of these is cause for immediate revocation of your Beta key and a ban from all future playtests.
Where is the Beta Discord?
The Beta Discord is for active playtesters. If you’re selected to take part in a Beta, you’ll have an invitation to join emailed to you, along with your Beta Key.
When is the next Beta?
Keep an eye on your emails! Announcements about Betas that you are invited to join will be emailed to you. They will not be announced on the Discord server.
Where do I go to complete the post-Beta Survey?
This is sent via email approximately 30 minutes after the Beta starts. Completing this is really important, as it not only provides us with super valuable feedback to help us improve Fall Guys, but it also helps us decide which players we invite for future playtests.
We are beyond grateful for all the feedback you provide - we literally could not make informed decisions about the future of Fall Guys without you.
I’ve been mean to the Support Team and they still haven’t given me a Beta Key!
So most importantly, the Blunderdome and all of the people that work with us are here to try and make your experience as positive as possible. Sometimes an outcome or situation will not be what you want and we appreciate that can be frustrating. But it’s never an excuse to be rude or abusive to our staff or other players. All players must adhere to the Rules of Conduct as per our EULA. It’s nicer to be nice, isn’t it?
