Has crafting been tested at all? 3 months till release here.....

So I'm wondering since the most recent beta weekend, which was about a month ago, has there been any closed beta going on at all where crafting has been implemented?  Has it been tested at all?  Because it wasn't in yet for that recent weekend test.  Just seems pretty concerning that they are already locked into a release date and a system as big as that hasn't really even been worked through by the fans to give feedback and suggestions for positive changes.  Look at Wildstar for example.  I'm not a huge fan of that game but I give kudos to their development and closed beta process.  There have been quite a few game systems that got so much heat in closed beta they chose to completely rework those systems, which they can afford to do because they aren't locked into a release date of any kind.  But ESO hasn't even given it's crafting system a test drive at all, as far as I know, and we are 3 months from launch now.  Kind of scary.

    I'm expecting the crafting to be much like Skyrim's crafting system.. which is nothing special, quite simple actually. Can't go wrong with it, though. Atleast not in my opinion.

    Im expecting some simple system just so they can say they have crafting in game. Just like in most other themparks.

    I just hope they are making a system that

    a does not force people intoo crating

    b does make crafters rare

    c does make crafted gear wanted

    If this is the case. My sub will last all of the first month. I'll unsub and simply wait on Camelot Unchained where there is an entire class devoted to crafting...

    unless the Dev's have no concept of what detailed crafting is then you would have to be wrong. None of us know, I would guess one of two things: 1) they havent decided what the system will be 2) the system is done a fully thought out and is there bread and butter so they are waiting till the last minute to show us.

    I would not be too amazed if it were just another Dress to impress gear system much like GW2. So I doubt armor or weaponry will be meaningful craftables. Minor components for colors and special bonuses maybe and styles. Alchemy might be something especially pvp potions for RVR. But typically when themepark meets RVR its hard to imagine a game with any meaningful crafting system. Even less than a normal themepark.

    Game is still under NDA, so not really any info available yet.
