Please Do Not Delete Live Server Character on Second One Tamriel PTS Update

Everyone at ZOS, I beg of you, DO NOT delete all the copied live sever characters on the PTS on the second patch for One Tamriel. Usually the characters we put so much love into are deleted only a week after a new huge update is released. Please let us enjoy our live server characters on the PTS for a few weeks with One Tamriel. This is a huge update, and I really wanna see my friends' characters in PvE areas for awhile.

    Yes the problem are the conflicts in the databases. If you have 2 same character names or 2 same account ID's you must merge them. For example with adding a prefix "_eu" or "_us".

    But this merge is very complex and problems are inevitable.

    Can EU go first this patch and NA have the following months? @Wrobel @ZOS_GinaBruno

    It gets tiresome only being able to test your own characters for 2 weeks... Surely its time for EU to have their 2 week share and NA to have 2+ months!
    As an EU player... I agree. We've had way more than our fair share of PTS time.

    Well surely once 'One Tamriel' goes live 2 of the 3 faction clusters of the megaserver could be reused for PvP & PTS giving 2 Live/2 PTS instead of the current 3 Live/1 PTS.

    Yes I know I said 2 for live instead of 1, because this spare could be used to limit lag in PvP etc.

    It would also be great to have access to the max number of champion points for test characters. Why are there only 300 to begin with???

    I think it's widely presumed that you get 300 CP because most content is balanced around 300 CP. They want people on templates to test the content at the CP it has been balanced as well as the people on their copied characters testing at higher/lower CP.

    I'm an EU player and so bias. I'd much prefer they figured out a way to get past the technical hurdle of the database issue really.

    The megaservers are still separate in One Tamriel. That doesn't help the PTS database copy issue that Paulington is referring to.

    I am VERY aware of this, if they could fix the database issue...

    But since accounts can load all 3 versions of the game EU, NA and PTS, and you can get 4x extra characters slots for 1500 crowns each (1 crown each on PTS), the tech is already there to display 12 or more characters.

    Stick 3 pages of character slots on the PTS (upto* 36 slots) and you have both sets of live and PTS template slot characters per account.

    * upto - In this case referring to the number of unlocked slots per server, so upto 24 with no added character slots.

    Fill the slots with NA and EU characters in that order and reset the slots to match live every PTS patch.

    ^ Although this effectively wipes PTS progress and template characters, it would bring the live characters up to date with their progress and unlocks.

    Now we have option to create lv 50 with 0 cp and lv 50 with 300 cp template ,so Zenimax can just add option in character createor to make lv 50 with 500 cp or cp cap.
