    Locking PTS During Non-Critical Test Periods

    Hello All,

    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.

    Some people even had trading threads in the PTs section. Some people will do anything to get stuff without having to really pay anything for it.

    Closing PTS

    I don't see why you can't offer a "monthly prize" to encourage people to play on live too..or give time to transfer weapons to characters on live from PTS

    This will never happen as with all the free bits they give you on PTS no one would buy any on Live since they'd have all the weapons already for free.

    This is going to make some PTS only loners real happy.
    They say most of your brain shuts down on the Defiance forums. All but the impatient side, and the sarcastic side. No wonder I'm still awake.

    Everything that you just posted is the opposite of how it is supposed to work.
