Shameless bump, definitely would love to hear some news on this. With GW2 creeping closer, we've had a good handful of people quit swtor until New content or f2p arrives. If they genuinely meant a next month launch it really does need to hit PTS within the next week to get a solid 3-4 weeks testing.
Frankly I'm not going anywhere, but getting impatient, and keeping people together in the meantime is proving challenging.
Also can we expect new character copies to PTS, since the previous copies have significantly worse gear?
Yeah, I suspect they'll give us the ability to copy our geared characters - can't imagine doing HM Terror in Rakata lol.
