The Test Network is where the team building Influence will be pushing new features where all are welcome to hop into the test network and play around. Eventually most of the Exploitation Release will be avaliable for everyone to try without cost and having to worry about actions being forever posted to the blockchain.
If you want to participate in providing feedback, learning the game before it comes out, or want to earn some SWAY in our test-to-earn events, the Test Network is where this will all take place.
By now you likely know that Influence is both browser based and blockchain powered. (If not we recommend you take a look at the System Requirements Page)
With this understanding there are some basic prerequisites to being able to use the Test Network.
Once you set up a wallet, it can serve as your forever wallet for all things on StarkNet and blockchain, along with Influence Test/Live clients.

Best practice is to create a new Ethereum address within your wallet/account before utilizing the testnet.
Go to the link below and input your address into the site. This will send you a small amount of GoETH so that you can use the Test Network.
Within the test network you can currently mint asteroids, name them, and scan/finalize them for bonuses. We would like as many people to do this so we can ensure everything is working properly as we add new features.
Head over to the Test Network and login into your wallet in-game. (top right corner)
Once you are logged in and verified that you are on the Goerli Test Network within your Metamask wallet you are ready to start minting asteroids.
Once within the Test Network you will be able to take any actions available. If you run out of GoETH just use the faucet again to get more into your wallet.
