Oops, oh well. But that speculation was almost as good as any other.
^Exactly. lol

All his doomsday nay saying approach about how bad BW/EA is going to screw up & postpone the launch, blah blah blah, etc...

It does NO good for anyone or anything. All it is, is a bunch of drama feeding crap.

Until they come forward & state hey we are postponing it, chill. They said Sept. NEVER a date, just Sept.
Just because they're still using the PTS, doesn't mean crap either, even if it's based on X back in the day & Joe Schmoe's theory of what they've done in the past, still don't mean crap. lol

lol are you serious of course it matters because of testing and also stress testing that can't really be done on the PTS because only a number of people use the PTS.

I think a Monday Sept. 30th patch and release. Bioware still gets to promote a Sept launch but gets 4 weeks of testing and/or PTS access.

You can't test everything on the PTS as you stated.
They won't test everything on the PTS (e.g. story, operation story/mechanics, loot drops, etc...) either.
They wait for live for some of that or if they are testing some of that, it's not the general public PTS as you have to sign the disclosure so as not to leak info, ergo you won't know about that stuff being tested unless you're one of the few selected & then you can't talk about it.

They are testing with the PTS anyway, whether or not they allow players on it. So no the PTS doesn't matter really when the launch is happening as they're using that to gather feedback but it does NOT mean they actually care what feedback is being given or even implement it this time around. ROFL

Something else that seems to be ignored. The PTS is the PUBLIC Test Server. There may very well be a Private test server (or 2) where other things are tested. Surely the devs have the ability to at least locally test the things they are working on as they are developed.

That almost goes without saying.
I've been invited to private testing on more than one occasion. For different games … not SWTOR !



Yeah.. go figure ! And YES It was a LOOOONNNNGG time ago !

I used to do paid Alpha and Beta testing when that was a thing in the 90’s and early 00’s. This was before online stuff and more bandwidth, so they used to send my CD’s

sounds logical to me -- late ( very late) Sept -- mid early October ...
eh, I am expecting a delay anyway ...
