PTS - Faction Play Update - Round 2
Starts: Right now!
Ends: Monday April 29th at 1PM PDT

The second Faction Play Update is up and running.  We seem to have fixed the Error 63 issue that was plaguing the first PTS build.  That being said, we won't have complete confirmation until we get some 12v12 matches played.  This PTS will be running until Monday of next week.  This allows us to include a weekend in the PTS cycle.

Here's what to expect:
  • The story panel on the role selection screen has been properly implemented so you can read what the conflict is about.
  • The story section of the current mission tab will scroll if needed. (At the moment all story items are under 256 characters so there's no scroll)
  • The 3 phases of a conflict are timed at 1hr/2hr/2hr for a total 5 hour conflict.  This will repeat over and over until the PTS cycle is done.

The discussion for this PTS is in this thread:

We will get a list of rewards for participating up as we get it clarified internally.

To install the PTS Client:
Option 1) Use the MWO Portal to download the client. It will be listed on the left hand column.  Simply click the PTS list item and click Install/Patch.
Option 2) If you have installed a previous version of the PTS client, you can select the PTS list item and run the MWO Repair Tool to copy files from your main MWO build.  Make sure the option 'Try to fetch files from other MWO installs on this computer' is enabled in the Repair Tool options.
