PTS is up... testing seemed to go okay. The reason for a non-full announcment on it is that we are still wary of that Error 63 issue. No one has seen it appear on this version on the build but I also don't want the entire PTS crowd logging into be disappointed.

That being said, if you have a bit of time and try the PTS out, it is up and running and running in 5 hour conflicts... 1hr Scout, 2h and 2hr follow-ups depending on who wins in each phase.

Rewards for playing PTS, TBD at this point.. but yes there WILL be rewards.

If today goes without a huge Error 63 problem, we'll do a full announcement for tomorrow.

Remember the PTS will be up for a full week including next weekend.

Thanks for your patience and assistance on this one. Here's to hoping it works correctly. (On that note, if we see the Error 63 dogpile, we'll pull PTS down immediately.)

So a few more will start testing soon I'd imagine.

Without an announcement, you might as well keep it on scouting the whole time as it triggers 63 just fine and it'll be hard to get 24 ppl together.

So I patched and logged in.

Can report no error 63 on login as happened last time.

3 people in queue, but I gotta go to work. Best I can do for now.

Good luck to everyone else.

So I queued for over 1 hour. 5 Marik, 0 Steiner.

Maybe later. Fun Fact, this does not count as a game, so I get no rewards.

Still a good hour before the "peak" comes in. The PTS went up toward the end of the EU Peak.

Once NA peak kicks in which is around now, should be right once word spreads.

Yeah without at least something saying - "Hey the Test server is open" I don't think we are likely go get any Invasion matches just 4 people total queued at the moment.

Will be doing a full announcement tomorrow. Just for now, people just logging in is helping. Games don't have to kick off. I mean if they do great.. but those who have already logged in a confirming stability.

logged in successfully. cant get a game.
No error 63 bug to be seen this time.

Not a fan of the 10 second looping solaris timer. Please remove it and just have the queuing screen that we had before. Even better, put the timer in a separate moveable window that doesn't lock out the UI. So that while we wait we can adjust our dropdecks or edit mechs. (this would be great for queuing overall in any modes, just lock the queued mechs and/or currently selected dropdeck from editing)

No one else seems to be on the server since there is 0/0 in the queue. (edit 1/1 in queue)

I'll repeat that forcing Scouting mode is not a good idea, most people I play with hate the mode. UNLESS its only for the PTS to force testing of the MM for scouting and then MM for Invasion.

edit: Being unable to swap sides or roles once selected is annoying. especially if the make up of the queue had 3 steiners and 6 mariks and you cant swap sides to balance it out so that you get 4/4 and people can get a game.
