Never look a gift horse in the mouth, Gamigo seem to be moving stuff up onto Google's Cloud platform and are running a test later today/this evening between 8-10pm UTC (Noon to 2pm Pacific Time at Rift HQ) on the PTS (Public Test Shard).

Everyone that logs in will receive 100,000 Loyalty, not a bad few minutes work.

PTS Playtest: Tuesday 4/16, noon to 2pm PT

We're in the process of migrating our test environment up to Google's cloud platform and could use some assistance testing basic server functionality tomorrow afternoon for a couple of hours.

If you're interested in helping out, log in to the Public Test Shard (Alpha) Tuesday 4/16 between noon and 2 PM PT.

As a token of our thanks, we'll be granting 100k loyalty to all accounts who participate.

Thanks!

Note: The test environment is currently offline, but patching is available before we open up tomorrow.
