Welcome to programming, everyone, and quit your pointless whining. If you want to unsub, then just frickin' unsub. If you want to report problems, this isn't the place to do it, as they've clearly stated. Anything else you have to say here is most likely useless.

Nah, that's grossly exaggerated. They're actually down to only one monkey. That's it.

Nonsense, software engineering and bug hunts do not work that way; I suspect you have done neither.
And besides, leaving the servers up gives the player base a chance to find even MORE bugs.

It won't be 2 days anyway. The will pad and under commit to over deliver.

People just like to whine.

I've worked with similar setups where live copy was used and it didn't work. It didn't work because the environment was never the same even though it started as a live copy testing. Quite simply it came down to this, you can start as copy exact, but as soon as the first promotion hits the PTS that needs to be tested, it no longer is copy exact. The risk of contaminating production servers is too great to copy exact to all servers for the sake of PTS testing. Net, net, as soon as the PTS gets the promotion it is a different environment all together.

No, the only really option is to actually to do live testing on the production servers during patch down time. That would require and increase in down time (from 4 hours to 8 hours etc.) and as you can see from the responses in these forums, players don't have the patience. It is a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation for BW.

My man's right. I'm a indie developer and as one even i can only imagine the insanity these guys got going on right now. As both a developer and as a player, this game is a real marvel. As been since I played the early betas.
