    Character copy to PTS - notification and process

    So the character copy to PTS window is currently open, in preparation for the Armistice 2017 event. I have requested a character copy and am looking forward to getting a sneak peek at the new weapons etc first hand.

    A couple of questions regarding PTS:

    1. If and when our character is copied to the PTS, will we be notified in any way (like a reply to the PM)?
    2. Will the copy work if the live account is active when the copy occurs (i.e. will it matter if I am logged and playing on the live server)?
    3. Will the copy work if the PTS account is active when the copy occurs (i.e. will it matter if I am logged and playing on the PTS)?

    Right now, I'm concerned that if I log in I might jeopardise the success of the character copy (but I don't know if and when that might happen )!
    Just thought there may be issues with files/database fields being in use or locked etc.

    I have looked at the following, but couldn't see any specific information answering the questions above:

    In terms of being online on either accounts I'm unsure but when your Copy has been completed Destromathe will reply to your pm confirming your copy!

    Don't forget there will be a lot of copy requests for him to process so be patient!

    Thanks for the info, DynastyKris, that's good to know!

    Yeah, I'm sure there will be quite a few requests! I'm not expecting it to happen that quickly .

    It's a shame the process could not be automated/macro-ed and it is also a shame that the 'test period' has to be squashed into such a short time frame (in the week between CC and Armistice). I'm sure it would have been easier for them to have the schedule spread out a bit more (to give a decent test and not to feel so rushed).

    Hey Light,

    I will indeed let you know when I have completed the copy. We do usually get more PTS time for content, especially when its a new event. However this time around, we had some issues with the PTS build machine and could not get it out sooner. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Hey Destromathe, many thanks for your reply, PM and for the doing the character copy!
    I remember now you mentioned the problems with the PTS in the live stream, I forgot about that .

    So far I have only spent a short time on PTS, finding my way around all the extras we are given! That’s a whole load of free purple and blue weapons and shields! It's great to have the extra inventory slots. I have already had some fun trying out the Armistic arkfalls with other players and some of the new jackpots. Hoping to get the full set to test – probably need to do some swapping with other players on PTS .

    One minor issue – my ego is only 5651 on PTS but 6000 on the live server (maybe the copy was from a backup dataset?). If that can be fixed easily (like editing a single value), I would appreciate it . If not then I’ll try one of the workarounds (try to increase my EGO or reduce the rating on all my weapons/shields).

    Should we be able to get the jackpots from the Defiant Few vendors on PTS?
    Or do we just use the PTS Jackpot Testing Crates?




    Edit: Afte re-reading some posts, since it's only the previous jackpots that are from the Defiant Few vendor, there is not really any need to test those .

    It can take ages for it to be copied, I heard once it took someone months to get a pts character copy, took me a while too
