Gabrien happens to be right in this case, however: the central reason TA members tell developers to give out codes in messages is simply to reduce the competition and increase their own chance of getting one. Having the chance to post reviews or feedback is of secondary concern to getting their hands on "free stuff".
In pretty much any thread where codes have been made available to TA members exclusively, most of these people have not
provided any kind of feedback or review - simply saying, "Thanks (for not making me spend my own money, sucker)," isn't valuable to anybody, and isn't actually worth any more to a developer than silence is.
Hell, in this case perhaps a running tally should be kept stickied, recording who has acknowledged taking a public code and has also subsequently provided solid feedback, so that developers can check that list and give out private codes to those people whose track record indicates that they would actually be of some use.
Now, as for the game itself, is there any actual story involved, or is it more a collection of randomly-generated quests and monsters in an open sandbox world?
