    Exclamation PTS Purpose

    Howdy!

    I wanted to run you through some of the changes we made to the PTS a few months ago, and also go through the reasons for those changes.

    PTS has helped us find and fix a lot of bugs before they went live, thanks to all of you who play and post That said, it still currently has a number of limitations you're certainly aware of:
    • Players who haven't spent time earning levels and gear on PTS are unable to help test systems intended for experienced players.
    • Due to a variety of factors the PTS economy is… well… weird. Again, this makes it difficult to test certain aspects of the game without investing time.
    • Testing is undirected and unscheduled.

    To address these issues we made the following changes:
    • Creating items which will appear only on the PTS store, which will grant experience, items, and crafting materials to help test.
    • Posting patch notes for our new PTS builds to direct testing.
    • Bringing PTS online only for specific tests, and keeping it offline otherwise (currently this is likely to happen on a weekly schedule, often Wednesdays through Fridays (though that will shift based on our testing needs)

    Our major goal with these changes is to remove hurdles that prevent users from helping us test, and turn PTS into a more focused environment.

    Happy to see these changes about to happen on PTS. That's what everyone who really cares about trove always wanted to see. A server to actually test things and prevent major bugs to hit live servers. About time!
