Hey all, just wanted to give you a heads up we will be bringing the PTS down for maintenance tomorrow, March 9 starting at 8am EDT to perform some backend work. This will likely take all day and we expect to wrap up by 6pm EDT.

Thanks in advance for your patience!

    At this time, we are going to need more time to complete maintenance. As such, the PTS will remain offline until tomorrow when we are able to finish everything up. Thanks again for your patience.

    Are they doing a fresh PC/US copy? Like to test out the mess of AwA on my current charaters.

    Not until the first High Isle PTS patch (8.0.0).

    I have toons on both the NA and EU server to cover the PTS. The toons are going to get wiped at some point anyways so having them on both servers covers all of the wipes. Yes, on the EU server players type a different language that I can't translate but I play alone so it doesn't really matter. Maintenance is over. Time to play.

    So does any of the backend work address the AwA issues?
    Will there be any kinda notes about todays maintenance?
    Are the devs, ANY DEVS, ever gonna comment on AwA before it goes live?
    Inquiring minds want to know.. :)

    Is it just me, or is that absolutely ridiculous? US got two weeks, the FIRST weeks of the PTS cycle while everything was broken; and EU gets three months.

    It used to be the other way around.

    I don’t suppose they could alternate??? The ideal situation would be for everyone to get equal PTS time.

    They really should just come up with a way to tag duplicate names between the two servers, and allow double the amount of characters, since accounts are already shared for both regions those are the only issues that should prevent both regions from sharing.

    Brainstorming here: maybe just append NA or EU to everyone’s name? Wipe all the names (but only the names) and replace them with a random string? Set it so whoever logs in with a duplicate name has to reset it - they have to have some kind of infrastructure for this already, for people who have inappropriate names on live?

    No, I like having a fresh new account on EU PTS since I don't have a EU account live, especially now that we have Account Wide Achievements. Each fresh PTS cycle I can play through one of my favorite quests without achievements getting in the way of narrative integrity, and I'll have access to quests alts are locked out of four times a year. Keep EU and NA separate, but definitely make test time more equal between the two servers.
    I don't care about achievements; I do care about the game world continuing on like it always did before Update 33 for my alts.

    They have to have a system that can copy one database alongside another for that to happen, and all the indications from ZOS are they don't have such a system. Adding one server's database to the PTS on top of another's would therefore simply over-write the existing one. That is my understanding as to why the Live servers have to take turns on the PTS.

    You can always just make a fresh template character to test things. That's what we console players always have to do anyway...
