Hey everyone!

I wanted to give you all a heads up that with every major Game Update, starting with Game Update 2.7, we will be wiping all characters on the Public Test Server. To get the best information we can from the PTS, we want characters to be freshly copied and as up-to-date as possible.

Instructions on how to copy your character will be included in every PTS blog, and will be available on the PTS forums.

Thanks!

With this reminder, does that mean 2.7 update will soon be put on PTS?

We are aiming for February 24th. This, of course, is subject to change.

Sounds like a plan! Glad to see PTS is going to get a fresh start.

So this means our PTS guilds and guildbanks will be gone?
I guess it does not really matter. If I had known this when the PTS was still up, I could not have saved the credits and items somewhere anyway.

Still, I feel a little sad because on the PTS I bumped my Operative to level 55 when I was testing 2.0; now I first need to level my Imps on the live servers before I can test Imperial endgame PvE content on the PTS again.
Unless of course they brought back the instant level-up terminal. *hint hint*

What about those of us whom tested before 1.3 and still have those characters on the PTS? I'm just saying... because we used to have a thriving community on the server before you screwed us over back then.

Does this mean that Legacy Achievements opbtained through PTS character will get lost, too ?
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

Good question. I'm moving towards obtaining achievements tide to PTS characters (like title for leveling above 10 lvl, finishing first chapter, etc.). Are you trying to say that if someone didn't get them till now, only way after 2.7 will be to level new character between updates? Sounds a bit not thought through.
