Manual process? That sucks. I wish they would use a better testing method. Other MMOs will clone an entire highly populated production server, apply the patches, and then test. IMO this gives the greatest chance of a successful rollout since you are emulating what will happen when the patch goes live. Staring with a server wipe and transferring characters is not real world. it is alpha testing at best.

Actually, if you tested 1.2, your character(s) are still there. So they just applied the 1.3 patch to 1.2 and started transferring characters to the PTS. Appears there's still some bugs as some people got copied twice, or their name is JKHKJPJKGJH. A WiP but it does at least appear to be working. And they are still copying from live to PTS

Greetings everyone!

We wanted to give you the following information from Senior Community Coordinator which you can find in the Developer Tracker:

You can still sign up to be copied - you can find the information in this news article.

If you filled out the survey before Monday, your character should be copied. If your character isn't copied, please fill out the survey again and make sure that all the information is correct. We'll continue to copy characters over periodically, so you'll need to check back to see if your copy has completed.
We hope this helps!

Update: We are extending the cut off time until 10AM CDT tomorrow, June 8th. This will be the last batch of character copies for a while, so be sure to sign up!

I have some more information for those of you interested in getting your character copied over to PTS. If you haven't, make sure to fill out the survey in the news article by midnight CDT tonight (6/7). We'll be doing another batch of copies on Friday, but you must have your survey filled out by the end of the day today. We'll continue to copy more characters periodically and will let you know as we do!

I don't know if mine were transfered or not. I requested on the day they offered but my PTS launcher cannot process the 1.3 patch so I cannot access it to check.

If you haven't been copied, you should try filling the survey out again before the end of the day today. If it is filled out correctly, you'll be copied as part of tomorrow's batch!

Sigh, really hoping I get copied this time. I filled out the survey the first day it was available, then again when 1.3 went live on the PTS, then again today. There's stuff I'd really like to test as a level 50, not the level 30 I made on the PTS.
