Hi all,

Appreciate the feedback here. I've passed it along to the team, so they can review and investigate what's going on with game scaling.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our fourth phase of PTS featuring the Sorcerer and Assassin Combat Styles and level 80 game scaling. In case you missed it, we go through a bit of the philosophy behind the updates we�re making to Combat Styles in this article. As with the previous Combat Styles that have been released through PTS, we are still focused on streamlining ability sets in order to enable more player choice and maintain the unique identity of the class. All the constructive feedback we have been receiving from players who have dived into PTS has been helpful in identifying what experiences are crucial to players... Read more

With PTS now live, you can help test the Combat Style for the Sorcerer.

Please answer the following questions:
  • Does the current combat rotation make this experience feel like you are playing an Sorcerer? Why or why not?
  • If you have feedback on the different discipline, please note your feedback accordingly so we can track it.
Feel free to answer in as much detail as possible to help us understand your thought process and line of thinking.

Thank you!

With game scaling now available, we would like to compile feedback based off of your experience with the Combat Styles currently available.

Please answer the following questions:
  • How does this experience compare to live?
  • Do you feel too strong or too weak? Please explain why.
  • Do you notice anything off with your stats?

Please keep in mind the following:
  • Game scaling is available only for planets, daily areas, story mode Flashpoints, and chapters.
  • Game scaling is NOT available for old operations (Ops outside of 7.0), or Veteran and Master modes in Flashpoints
When providing feedback, please let us know what Combat Style you've chosen, and describe your experience in as much detail as possible to help us understand your thought process and line of thinking.

Thank you!

Hi everyone,

In an effort to keep all the 7.0 PTS feedback threads easily accessible and not fill the entire first page of this sub-forum with all stickied threads, we've compiled a list here for your convenience.

Hi Screaming_Ziva,

His inventory rotation schedule will match up with when Guild Perks are reset every Tuesday at 00:00 GMT. I'll work on getting the patch notes updated to reflect this info.

EDIT: Typo on my part. Updated the day. (What even is time right now?)

Hi all,

We will be taking down the PTS shortly to perform character wipes in order to prepare for the next phase. We intend on launching the next phase sometime this week. All relevant info will be posted once it is live. Should any of this change, we will let you know.

Thank you,
Jackie

Hi The-Kaitou-Kid,

Confirming that it is only on Guardians, so what is currently available on Sentinels is intended.

Hi everyone,

Wanted to let you all know that the PTS server will be going down shortly to implement the following fixes:
  • Sleep Dart is a back for Operatives (it was never intended to be removed)
  • Combat Dummies will be level 75
  • Engineering Sniper has Orbital Strike baseline
  • Some tooltip clarifications/typo fixing
Down time is estimated to be approximately 30 minutes. Will update this thread when the server comes back up.

Hey TrixxieTriss,

We haven't stopped reading the feedback on the Guardian and Sentinel threads. I still provide the team with the constructive feedback from the threads when they are updated. It's why I heavily linked them in the OPs for the Sniper and Operative general and 'how to access' posts and also provided the Change Log.

We do plan on offering more classes to be tested in future PTS phases, so having all the individual feedback threads stickied would become a bit cumbersome. Even with everything stickied now, there's quite a bit. That said, I can work on LordCamTheGreat's suggestion with having a master feedback thread that is stickied as a compromise. Additionally, I'll be leaving a note for myself to consolidate the general and how to access posts for future PTS phases to save more room on the first page of threads.

Hi everyone,

We are looking into an issue where players are unable to log into PTS. We will be taking the server down for approximately 30 minutes shortly. I'll update this thread once we're back up.

Hey Galbsadi,

The team is currently taking a look at this as we have received other reports that are similar to yours. Will update the PTS sub-forum in general when I have an update.

Ready to dive into PTS? Here are the steps you need to follow in order to try out the Sniper/Operative.
