High Population Server Tech Testing

Test Center News for SWTOR has some interesting information up today. This comes right after we were talking about PTS testing and who gets in. Basically, they will be opening a new public test realm server in order to test for high population. So this means a lot of people will be invited in.

Here are the details from SWTOR:

The first step in this process is opening up a new, temporary Public Test Server for testing. In order for us to successfully test this new tech, we need your help. 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.

So how do you do it?

  • Log in to the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ launcher using your username and password.
  • Click “Play” to launch the game.
  • Click the Server Selection button in the bottom left corner of the character creation screen.
  • Select the following server: “High Population Server Test”
  • Click Select.
  • Review your characters for any issues and click “Play”.

Just keep in mind they will not be offering any customer support for this server at this time. They do,  however, want your feedback:

Please use the Public Test Server Forums for feedback and any issues you may experience. All gameplay policies are still in place; inappropriate or abusive players will not be tolerated on the test server and we ask that you please report this behavior to Customer Support here.

So there you go! If you want to check it out, help test the game and learn more about 1.4, here’s your chance. Let us know what you think!
