Hey folks!

I want to start by once again thanking all of you for taking the time to test everything on PTS and give us your feedback. It has been immensely helpful. The team has been pouring over your feedback and bug reports the past few days and working on a new PTS patch. Here is our current plan.
  • Tomorrow afternoon we will push a new PTS patch. This will include a bunch of changes based on your feedback and bug reports (look for notes tomorrow).
  • We will then plan two Warzone playtest sessions on Saturday. One in the morning and one in the evening (US time). This gives more options on when you can be available to play along with having a session more avaialble for our EU players.
  • Like the last test, devs will be playing incognito during the test. We will also be working with some of the influencers to get some streaming and giveaways happening during the tests.
Then next week we can gather the next round of feedback and see where we stand with everything in 5.9.2! We will continue more patches or playtest sessions as needed. Look for details and patch notes tomorrow!

Can't wait to see what's coming. I've really enjoyed having the opportunity to get in there and offer my opinions and feedback.

Was kind of wondering what was happening. I've logged in twice now to just myself on pub fleet. I don't see any public listings for a Rishi stronghold at the terminal on fleet?

Normally for a listing on a stronghold you have to reach a certain prestige limit before you can list in on the public listing and I know the one I been playing with is nowhere near that .

Any idea why the download/installation is super slow (2+ hours)? The installation takes 4-5 times as long as each download. Is it really another copy of the same game?

Is there any way to get it so the new arena only pops when queing for ranked? Some of us would like to test it but have not gotten the chance yet.

That’s a good idea. Make ranked only the new arena

and Can you add some frequency to it in the reg queue too and take Odessen out of the queue. It’s no good to test combat

Hopefully the Sorc changes will be live to test.

For me it took about 4 hrs to fully complete the download (34GB) & installation.
