    Ptr shows beta servers

    Hi folks sorry for the stupid question, I've never had cause to go onto a ptr server but now there is something I wanted to check out so I got the client installed it, when I log on it shows the same servers (with the same number under characters) as it did when I was in the beta for MoP. I thought I read something about this a while ago but can't find it. am I doing something wrong or?

    They moved MoP back into beta since they weren't happy with it as it stands. So they are rolling us back to DS but adding a new boss called "Mr. Stevens". They say he enrages after 4 minutes and only drops greens.
    He slipped out of his royal garments, left eternity to enter time, divinity to wrap himself in humanity.
    The sea of glass, for the ocean of separation. He left peace, and for the first time felt pain.
    Because the very hands that held the stars were now sentenced to wear my scars.

    Any other pearls of wisdom? I had done it right but having never done it, it's hard to tell.

    Are you using the beta client instead of the PTR client?

    Well if we're going to confuse people.

    This obviously proves Expansion V is going into beta soon. This happened last time, trust me I'm a doctor.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    Most likely you need to change the version of WoW you want to launch. It will most likely have a selection option on your start up screen to change between, for instance, WoW 5 and WoW 6. Check on your battle.net account which one is the PTR and which is the Beta and input the selection for PTR.

    if you didnt then do the following
    1 go to wow site and copy a character to the ptr, make sure the character copy is complete before attempting to log
    2 if you have multiple accounts enter with your ptr account should be wow1 but check all of them just incase

    How do I choose what version to launch? I see no option for that?

    I go to the ptr account on the WoW site, and the only link there is beta character copy, and the realms being Lost Isles, Mechatorque Gilneas or Hammul which I remember as the beta realms I don't have an option for ptr. (Trying to copy onto those result in an error. )

    Sorry for the dumb questions but for some reason I appear to have a mental block about this.

    Edit: Ok, It works now, Apparently Firefox didn't want to show me the options on the transfer page, I went on with IE and it had ptr copy which then allowed me to log on my ptr account ... now ... Why firefox screwed up and IE didn't .... I'm not sure.

    Thanks to those who actually... Tried to help as opposed to making expansion jokes.
