    Grats... but before anyone freaks out about the fights not being "hard" based on this....

    They are hard for those just starting out learning them. If you spent a month or so on the PTS learning a fight then come live its not exactly going to be all that "hard" for guilds geared enough.

    This is basically the shining example of why unlimited PTS testing (if its continued to be utilized down the road) will cause a mass exodus of players.

    Im sure it will take some time people to figure them out,especially if they didnt test at all.
    Gelindra and Progenitor being probably slightly harder than zaviel/kain, but guess it depends how comfortable guilds are doing different things. What's hard for us might be easy for other guilds

    Totally agree! It's a real shame the testing had to be done this way.

    It is a shame. And just to clarify in no way am i blaming Favor... i mean PB ;) for taking what Trion gave them and putting in the countless hours of work on the PTS to know the fights inside and out and practice practice practice.... so that come live they could mow em down. You all put in the time and effort to reap the rewards.

    But Trion... if your reading this... this is a direct example of what not to do. You give guilds time to learn fights inside and out and you only speed up the need for new content. This actually hurts you. It hurts progression races. It hurts the excitement of new content. And it makes guilds burn through "live content" faster.... meaning you have to release content faster.

    Once again grats Favoritism.

    But Trion.....

    It wasn't just practise, we gave a lot of feedback, if something felt easy we said so and tried to get devs to buff the bosses. Often we streamed our attempts with dev watching and gave direct feedback. We always gave it 100% and wanted the hard modes to be a true challenge. But yeah all the teasting was invaluable for us also and i think some more limited testing on PTS for future content would be for the best.

    Initial testing for bugs, exploits and tuning on PTS is acceptable..It should then move to internal servers and have a very well thought-out and implemented re-vamp, so that encounters that players think they know from test are different once live..not just a little different..but very different. The testing should be for mechanics. Terrain. Line of sight..how encounters react when approached different ways..once devs have enough tools in their 'bag o tricks'..they, should be able to pull some surprises out of it for everyone.

    Testing content that goes live as carbon copies..is just getting a free run at things beforehand, which..although open to everyone, *most* people..even competitive raiders don't have the time for on a regular basis and therefore skews competition, for those that care about it. Trion..you WILL lose subscriptions if you do not change the way you test content prior to it being available to your customers.

    This is incorrect. It only took them a few hours (or less) progression on each on PTS to kill. Told devs over and over again it's too easy and they're doing it wrong but whatever
