SWTOR high population server tech testing starts today
Star Wars: The Old Republic’s public testing server has been switched over by BioWare in preparation for the new Mega Servers the developer plans to implement into the game.
Duplicates of all the characters across the US East Coast have occurred.
“In order for us to successfully test this new tech, we need your help,” said BioWare in a post on the matter. “To facilitate your participation we have copied all characters from our East Coast servers to this temporary Public Test Server.
“If you have any characters on an East Coast server, you can now log in to this special Public Test Server, find your copied characters, and begin testing this important feature today, September 13th.”
All bugs should be reported on the Public Test Server Forum, said the firm.
If you are already testing Game Update 1.4 content on the regular Public Test Server, don’t worry: your characters will remain unaffected.
