And what's the point of a beta then??

Best to get these things out on the table and do as much damage as possible while it's still in beta. What's the point of a beta if not to expose problems?

If we don't do this, we'll have only ourselves to blame when the cheaters start ruining your games in November!

So do everything you can exploit the beta and spread the word. This will allow Pandemic to actually make fixes early on.
