Basically to prevent the issues with the last GSF patch, (bugged mines/drone hitting live, etc) Pilots from every server should download PTS, if they haven't already, and copy their existing GSF toons over. Then we should all meet up for a test session/bloodbath

Not only will this give us the chance to insure a bug free live launch, it will be an oppurtunity to test ourselves against the best from all the other servers.

Hit reply, and leave the best time for you or your guild to login to PTS and give it a go.

Wouldn't it be better to wait for the first weekend day? You will find people working today, being a weekday, plus they will still have to DL the PTS.

The inability to test GSF is a major issue with PTS. I tried last night, we asked people to queue up, never popped in an hour and a half. Ridiculous.

A weekend party would be sweet. Let's get something organized and hopefully it will go better than the party we tried to have last time where GSF broke on all the servers.

Oddly enough, not everyone can be around for just ONE available session. You get a larger test population with a broader range of experience if there are matches consistently spawning daily. This is why PTS is available for more than a couple hours on a Saturday every time it is updated. A couple hours isn't enough data to provide a real test.

Here's a couple of questions for you:
  1. Why download PTS for just a couple hours of testing?
  2. Why not forget flying on the live servers and log into PTS for your daily flying for the whole weekend or even a week or so? What's it going to hurt?

So your rebuttal is "sorta maybe sometime between now and launch"? Yes in a perfect world i'd love to do it your way, but GSF isn't PvE or ground PvP where everyone is playing it. There are a limited number of pilots flying as is, let alone PTS pilots, and I'd like to get a chance to test this out with multiple matches. Yes, I'd love to run the PTS everyday but I have a job and a life and ships to level on my Main. The last thing any of us wants is another Bomber/TDM PTS release that has a "game breaking" bug to discover after an hour and a half queue, and no one touches the PTS again. The purpose of this post was to let the GSF forum community know there will be other testers on at a specific time. To be honest, I'm hoping we can do a Saturday 2 p.m. test every weekend from now until launch. If an afternoon run doesn't work for you, then schedule a 2nd run through. I'm sure there's plenty of people who want in but can't make a Saturday afternoon run, just as I'm sure there are people who will attend multiple testing sessions.
