    Default Tartaric Depths Testing Request

    Hi Folks,

    We'd like to get some pug groups together tomorrow (March 1st) for some informal testing of Tartaric Depths. This is mostly geared towards seeing how non-raiders fare in a pick up group environment and how difficult the encounters are for them. Devs such as myself and the raid guys will be on-hand to follow your group through the instance and take notes of your feedback.

    We'll probably do two sessions. First one at 11 am PST so the EU players have a chance to participate and the second one at 4 pm PST so the NA players (mostly east coast at that time) can check it out.

    Most importantly about this testing is that we don't want you guys coming in with a pre-made group of 10. You'll be queuing through the LFR system and being matched that way.

    Cya on PTS!

    There needs to be a bonus reward implemented to make players queue as a tank. However I am terrified this will is cause players who have no desire to tank or lack the skills to tank to flood the queues, leaving a nightmare situation for those poor pugs.

    I waited on pts for almost 20 mins before I moved on with my day as no queues were popping.
    Those that can, do. Those that can't, write guides on the forums.

    80 min queue so far... Queued when only 4 people were online, so the system should have put me in the first raid?

    Stayed in queue for 30 mins, it popped three times, first time it timed out when the two healers didn't accept, other two times somebody declined, why bothering queuing if you just decline?

    @Dev: maybe the better way to do this is have a system wide announcement on live shards. Something along the lines of "PTS testing for true pugs in TD in 10 minutes! Patch PTS and come join us" You may get more people that way.

    Or have a signup thread on the forums, but that probably isn't going to generate a lot of interest among the "non raiders". I'm not sure how many of the folks who would actually use LFR without a 10-man premade would come to the forums, and especially to the PTS section.

    We had low guild turnout on PTS yesterday so we tried to use LFR. We had premade with 6 people with all roles: 2 tanks, 2 healers, support - first couple attempts LFR popped out fast enough, but healers were not accepting for a while (our healers were offered dps roles) and then somebody declined, then it were couple of pop ups with fast declines. After that we were waiting for a while without popup with server messages in chat about slow data processing (don't remember exact message). And when we finally decided to call it and 2 people disconnected, LFR popped out again as soon as they did. What the point of popup when some people disconnected?
    We were trying to LFM in chat to test LFR with 10 men premade - but nobody was interested, even with some activity in chat.

    So test was a success, as usual. I expected that only people who care will be on PTS so I can't explain why none of LFR popups was successfully filled, unless it some glitch.

    P.S. we will try today again at 18:30 UTC (EU server time), I hope that we will have more guildies and will need only 1-2 pugs, as it obviously not possible to find 4 pugs.

    I see myself in your eyes!

    To be honest LFR gear from the vendor is worse than Expert gear as it doesn't provide set bonuses. Definitely noticeable as a tank.

    I really had fun this run though so thanks! Love your vids keep

    A: I did not agree to be filmed. I would have worn something more flashy!

    B: I would say this group was a bit above a "pug" quality of players across the board. We had mechanically aware players, a decent healer, and players who had done the encounters before.

    True pug healers and pug tanks and "average" dps will have a rougher time with some of these fights.

    You also have to keep in mind that it`s not common that people switch to the roles they got...the 2 times on live I got into QF via LFR we had to discuss about 5 to 10 minutes about who is going which role because you got 10 people in dps spec.
