Well I guess this is why we haven't seen it on the PTS.

why test something? hence all the problems we keep having since oh...say 1.4 of the constant disconnects to HIGH Latency and lag out the wahzoo. So I ask why do we test new game updates?

Yeah, I don't understand the no PTS. Every major patch they have released has had a wide range of bugs and that was after atleast a week of PTS. I don't get how they think it will be ok without any testing.

Really. How can you justify putting a minor patch on live w/out even putting it on test server? Especially when that patch adds an entirely NEW system to the game as well as revamping Ilum and adding a new world encounter? I am boggled

Also, I thought we were going to see character transfers to PTS as part of this patch. I know ranked pvp teams were looking forward to facing off with folks from different servers on PTS.

Do people actually think that just because it doesn't go on the PTS that they don't actually test stuff? They have had people testing this at their facility for a while. Without character copies there won't be many people capable of testing this properly on PTS anyway.

I know that they havent tested it with anything like realistic populations... well, not that PTS ever had anything like realistic populations actually. Still Character Transfers to PTS would have solved that particular issue.

This was never said by anyone....no talk of any PTS or character copies for 1.7 ever happened. What they did say was that there would be character copies for Makeb, which apparently is up as a huge patch download now, although you can't access it yet.

Ah, thanks for the clarification
