Brave testers!

While we originally planned to bring the PTS back online following this week's extended maintenance, we're now going to keep it offline until the next time it's needed for testing our upcoming 4.19 build. The team sincerely appreciates the insights and feedback you've shared so far! They've been very helpful in preempting surprises and illuminating issues before they hit the live servers.

We'll be sure to make noise when the PTS is going to be brought back online!

yes, diamond shores probably will become really great since they will change something again to make it better for the west, even it was all fine in alpha.... well, anyhow AA isnt much fun for me atm, maybe i just wait till end of februar and maybe take a look when the pts is up again.

I love library myself. I've been waiting for weeks for it to come out as I've done basically everything else I've wanted to do

A friend of mine and I were chatting and I came up with a new added element for husbandry as they can make everything there. Like some kind of added animals? Like oh..dwarves. Milk dwarves for greedy elixers stuffs! o/ Maybe we could test that on PTS?
We had a giggle about it and how funny it would be!

Hey Scapes... you know what makes the PTS so enjoyable to play over the live server? 2 things 1) No Auction house 2) higher labor regen. those 2 things eliminate bots, gold farming, Apex shinanigans and nearly all pay to win tactics. Everyone is put on a level playing field because you can't just buy whatever you need on the AH. People have to work together to accomplish things. They barter with each other and divide up tasks to reach common goals more. I think there are lessons to be learned from that... Sadly I doubt they'll ever make it to the live server but one can hope.

"We're now going to keep it offline until the next time it's needed for testing our upcoming 4.19 build" - which using an estimated time only that no one should hold you to will be about when?

Thanks for letting us know, it helps to schedule our live play. I rarely run trade packs on live when test is open, for example.

Could someone tell GLYPH that the test server is down, so the play button gets greyed out, please. (my OCD is getting twitchy)

I highly recommend giving notice before opening the server again, it lets the dedicated testers start planning and gets the word out to the temp testers who only want the new content as fast as they can. More testers, more tests, more bugs and glitches found after all. But that's just my opinion, take it for the 2 copper it's worth.

Why not leave it up? Some of us like to test things and push limits in a relativity quiet Server.

Because they want you spending money on the live server. Low populations on the live server cause more ppl to leave so they are basically forcing us to play on the live servers.

It annoys me to because I'm kinda sick of the drama on the live server. I enjoy the peace and quiet of the PTS.

Ditto Joecci.....I like the peace and quiet...sick of the drama and kill kill kill on live. Wish they would leave this up. I did want to test but came late to the party and barely had a chance to make a garden even.

You are not alone here. Anyone that did not get in on upgrading armor or weapons (or buying) early are screwed now and there is a definite economy of have and have not's with no way to close that gap now with the hyper inflation. Running trade packs takes 30 min per 63g (including the crafting time/turn in)...latest delph price I saw was around 30-40k. Screw that. I could craft my way to making money...if I can make it there without getting ganked. I would like the opportunity to craft high end items/experience higher level mobs without all of the grief.

I would assume PTS will be down till the next build... now that Build 4.19 is live on the live servers.

Would be a dick move as they were only online for 2/3 days. And it's still going to take ~2/3 weeks before we get the next update.

Correct, the PTS is down as the latest build has migrated to live. We'll bring PTS back online when the next build to test is available.

Any chance it can be up for us to test/try the Dolphin to help us decide if we want to play ArcheAge Casino?

I very much understand and am totally with everyone else on wanting the PTS back up as soon as humanly possible, partially because I really wanna play with the new dolphin mount and have been desperate to get back into the library, but we do need to be patient. My reason for enjoying to test server is because I'm tired of the drama in the main servers too. I'm a member of the SLEEPERS guild on Tahyang, which if you spend any time on that server you know the PVE members of my guild get a ton of grief from everyone else in the world anymore, but I've found that the EU server Nede doesn't have much drama, and I'm able to just wander around and enjoy the game at my leisure. heck, most of the pumpkin gardens that are full up on most of the NA servers are all but deserted there. So, let's give 'em a break, please.
