We have noticed a trend lately of players who are using the PTS as their version of Live, and playing there exclusively. This is not how the PTS is meant to be used, and we encourage those players to join the rest of the community on the Live servers.
As such, we will be shutting down the PTS during periods where we are not asking for testing. When we update the PTS with a new update, we will leave it up for a period of time until release, and then immediately bring it back down.
We do appreciate all of the testing that players do during our testing periods, and look forward to continuing that tradition with you all. However, please understand that PTS is not meant to be played all the time. Thank you.
