If they were Concerned about Us filling out it correctly they would have given more detailed instructions.

We cannot guarantee that every character will copy to the PTS successfully, however we can assure you that characters on Live servers will not be affected in any way should the tool fail. If you notice that you filled out the survey but your character did not copy, please fill out the survey again.

We know you are all excited to play, but please also allow for constructive discourse.


The problem that everyone has is with these 2 posts:

It is wrong for Allison to say these things as they are bad CSR responses (you'll is short for you will), then to come back and say we did not fill the survey out right is also very unprofessional, its 3 lines. it is not rocket science.

I filled out my form on day 1. No copy to the PTR. Oh well. Classic Bioware: Overpromise, Underdeliver.

Yep, letting my sub expire for sure in T-minus 10 days

Waited ALL day after I entered my info correctly about 15 times. Yet no lvl 50 copied. Please fix it. Space Slug is the server and Tir is the name.

I am not sure how you can "error" 15 times. Its YOUR fault not MINE. Please fix it.

One more thing, I am PAYING YOU MONEY TO TEST YOUR PRODUCT. Getting to level 10 is fun and all but I want one of my level 50's over....

They do not need everyone to test. They have plenty. Play on live servers.

Based on the number of bugs that are getting through I'm not sure how many are actually "testing".

I agree. I filled out the form the first day it was available. Then I filled it out 4 times since. None of the characters were moved. So Im testing stuff like the group finder and things I do not need to be level 50 for. I agree I think most consider it a preview of new content than testing it for bugs etc.

There aren't even enough people to adequately test the LFG tool on the PTS, so I highly doubt they have enough. Given the quality of the patches we've gotten, I doubt they've ever had enough people testing.

You do not need to be level 50 nor have a character copied to test the LFG tool.
