on the PTS forums, AllisonBerryman stated that if you filled out the form before Monday, your character should already be copied over to the PTS. They are still transferring characters in batches so if you fill out the form now, it will be transfered at some point just not immediately since it's a manual process they are using

heh, I had to download the PTS-client again anyway. still 10gb to go and I'm gonna stop the download now to play... but from what I gathered from other people who signed up on the day the sign-up went live, their chars are so far all on the PTS

So...we're being lead to believe they have a transfer tool we can use in "early summer".....but it's so broke they can't even use it on the test server? They have to manually transfer?

Wow.

By manual I mean they themselves are copying the characters over - no automatic transfer for us to do it on our own. They say within a couple weeks, server transfers will be comming. And from past conversations, they said it would be them doing first, then later we would get an automated tool. Biggest issue they are running into now is Legacy Names which it sounds like they have that figured out.

For instance, on the PTS, some peoples characters were copied twice, some people ahve their character names as LKJLKUBKOPJG so it's still a WiP

Broken ? let me ask you, have you ever set up mass transfer of chars through a computer system to take into account legacy names etc and all the other variables , no you say, well neither have they.
