Aye not sure but it could have been for either 2.4.3 or 3.0.2 or we could be completely wrong :P.Originally Posted by Panoramixe
No, a fresh raid encounter doesn't have to be tested. They didn't test Lich King on the PTR.Originally Posted by Grimmer
And the correct answer about 3.3.1 is there WAS no 3.3.1. We had 3.3.0a and then we got 3.3.2 then 3.3.3.
I agree, as far as I know you make premades for arena tournaments and don't copy your own character.Originally Posted by Creptius
You are incorrect. The Blizzcon Event server is usually where they hold that. It is also where they held the Live Raid.Originally Posted by Creptius
They generally do not use these servers for beta. This is probably unrelated to beta.
That's kind of the ultimate encounter for the expansion, so it's an exception. Obviously they eliminated some and focus more internal testing on that. I highly doubt they're not going to test Sanctum.Originally Posted by Brock2525
I stand corrected, they do in fact leave some numeric patches free in case of bug fixes. 3.3.4 can be that.And the correct answer about 3.3.1 is there WAS no 3.3.1. We had 3.3.0a and then we got 3.3.2 then 3.3.3.
That said? Still probably not beta.
The way Arena and MLG tournaments work are very different.Originally Posted by Panoramixe
3.3.1 was a patch applied to servers, requiring restarts. There was no client patch.Originally Posted by Brock2525
I remember that too. If you were in the beta, you couldn't join the PTR due to a bug.Originally Posted by Panoramixe
Nothing against you Boub, but did you really have to post this on the main page so everyone can see how to copy a character to the PTR and overload their copy process. Especially if we don't know exactly what it's for, now just random people will copy just in case it's for beta and probably never even log into it. :/
I'm falling back to this post. :POriginally Posted by Brock2525
I would like to quote a guy from the US WoW Forums:Originally Posted by Grimmer
EDIT: Also, I want to point out that we're running under different conditions now that we have the Battle.Net system in play. Not saying that it's a beta or a PTR, but how the next Beta is handled might be slightly different with that in mind.
Stop saying beta and beta. it's NOT! TBC and WotLK Beta you needed a special key code that you get in a lucky draw or something then, and same will be for Cata.
Pretty sure people have posted that they tried but couldn't copy their charactersOriginally Posted by sicness
Even if they can't right now they'll be more flooded with character copies than usual due to this just because people think it's beta when it's most likely not. Just curious why he had to put the direct to it right on the front page is all. :/Originally Posted by Cohih
No.Originally Posted by Evenstarr
We are in the age of the battle.net Account, not the age of beta keys.
Thats what she said! :P sorry couldn't help it.Originally Posted by Geekbustarz
Anyways if its the Beta would it mean it could be open to everyone?? like no opt-in where random people are selected!

Some peeps could not.. but I had no problems logging into both.
This is, for sure... NOT the Beta.. again BETAs are accessed thru beta.worldofwarcraft.com
Only those peeps who have had thier accounts flagged for beta and sent a code will even be able to copy chars.
However... the recent flood of information regarding the changes usually means BETA is imminent.. Blizzard has made it a point to release the info on chnages (especially potentially controversial changes) in the forums and allow for some discussion and to make sure the CORRECT Blizzard direction/changes are disseminated instead of "surprise changes" that get reported out of context and speculation gives way to a bajillion permutions of hell.
Since we have seen a ton of info regarding class changes, PvE/PvP, giuld leveling, Archeology, etc... it'sa pretty safe to assume it will be popping in the next 30 days or so.. perhpas tomorrwo who knows.
Another clue is the 6 months or so before release they generally need... 4 months for testing, 2 months for last minute changes, disc manufacturing, etc... If they started now.. it would land us around the first of November... so yeag it's not too far off.

If a person is unable to copy ANY characters to the test realm, how many characters are being copied to the test realm?
