I'm not sure you realize but they are letting 10s or even 100s of thousands people access to pts and cyrodil. Now getting them to actually test content is a different story
i think they need MORE templates ... or a better way of QUICKLY customizing ur build on PTS ... i made a v12 PTS char from the template and its stats are barely stronger than my V2 player after i spent every useful skill point i could find.... i think lots of things are NOT tested until the public release because it is too time consuming to level a char on PTS. (vamp abilitys, werewolf abilties, PVP, any crafting traits dependant on research) are a few.
I am convinced this a major reason the PUBLIC releases are so bugged.
I dont want this post sounding whiny i just want the game improved ... i think one of the best things ZOS could do at that this point is DO ANYTHING that encourages more testing of more configurations on the PTS server.
And you can't even get into Cyrodiil. I tried, knowing there probably wouldn't be on the PTR. Never got in.You can go to cyrodiil, but the v12 templates are limited to Daggerfall alliance only. Currently, it seems the only way to test pvp gameplay is to gradually level up lowbies from the other alliances.
Simple, ZOS needs to give pts the same functionality that all the eso character builder websites have. Let us make characters of any level, choose skills/morphs, guild lines, gear, ect right from the get go. After all this is a test server, it's not conducive to testing if ppl have to spend time leveling.
