You can't get "screwed over' on the Test Server. It is made for testing only... anyone who tries to stake a permanent residence there is just setting themselves up for a major disappointment and has no one else to blame.

Yeah, it's funny how people don't quite understand the nature of a Test Server.

This. You're not meant to be living on the PTS people.

When is this happening as to...
When should we transfer our new characters so we don't get caught in a rush?

Thanks looking forward to it

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

Thanks!

TEST Servers are for.. TESTING.... LOL

Makes sense to me to WIPE & RELOAD. After all how can they get a good idea of how changes in the next release are going to be impacted w/o testing on a fresh load. (Lots of leftover strange things on OLD migrated accounts).

Maybe our CARGO holds will work this time and we don't get 60 emails again. LOL

I have a Smuggler that I created and leveled to finish Alderaan (ACT 2) for the solo purpose of getting the 'Cutting Edge' Achievement.

As of last PTS access, I still had not received my Title on my Live server. Nice to know all that hard work is going to be wiped away. Any news on a fix for that pre-wipe?

What about the characters that only exist on the test server?

I rolled a couple characters there back before transfers were available, that I've been leveling when the PTS is up in order to test content that is other than max level. Will those now vanish entirely, never to return (since they can't be transferred back)?

Maybe they can transfer my PTS character to live.. save my effort! :P

I'd really just be happy with the Title I work for.

I had a level 4 trooper still on pts from closed beta (all the servers except 1 were down so i rolled a character there until the other servers were up), that i leveled to 50 for 1.2 testing. It would be nice if i could keep that one. i dont care about the rest.

i like the idea of getting to copy my character to live server (you can empty the cargo bays, remove all my money and schematics), as long as i can kjeep the name if it isnt taken on the live server.
