View Full Version : Beta TeamPicks (No Pins?)

I'm just curious how this works. I was told in the past that players in the LBP2 beta who recieved Mm Picks were given the pin for their account in the final build of the game.

I was lucky enough to score a TeamPick in the LBP Vita beta over the summer but don't have the pin in my collection in this final build, did Tarsier approach this differently?

Also, I noticed that one of my levels from the beta (the one that got picked) was actually republished on my earth before I even bought the full game. It no longer has the TeamPick, but I'm curious if anyone else got their level back, I was pretty surprised to see it again :)


Will there be any official explanation of what the process was with TeamPicked Beta levels? Not sure if I should delete this leftover level so I can start from a clean slate and risk losing a chance to recieve a TeamPick pin that's awarded late or something like that.

Hey Nick!

Three out of my four beta levels were on the community moon when I signed into the server for the first time last Tuesday.

I am not sure why some levels were spared and others scrapped. They might have did that to have some community levels for people to play last Tuesday.

All of my levels were completely broken though. I am still tweaking things on Sugar Pop.

As for the pins. That would be cool. I had a team pick in the beta too.

Oooh ok so it wasn't just teampicked levels? Interesting. And yeah my zombie level seems broken too, and I can't edit the title or anything for some reason lol.

V That's why. ;) V

Importing levels was actually quite a big task, since all levels need to be checked for nasty bugs and such. That's why it we decided to only bring over TeamPicked levels and a small number of levels from the top highest rated pages.

As for the Pins; the criteria for picking levels during the beta is quite different compared to now. In the beta it was enough to have a cool idea, or show something unique. In the full game, I at least, expect a lot more polish. :)

I remember you starting a thread about this on the beta forum and I'll reiterate my response here too: getting a pick in the beta
traditionally doesn't get carried over into the retail game (which is a good thing when you think about it because some of the beta picked
levels have been of dubious quality.)

Some of the legitimate picks have been of dubious quality, and that applies to every LBP game, beta or not.

Alright thanks Syroc for clearing that up. Love the picks so far :) Been replaying them a lot! Be sure to check out that ant game. You have to draw the path for the ant to follow using touch. It's such a fun game!
