Will there be open test servers?


I'm referring to test servers like the "EVE Online" singularity server. The test server would be obviously be used for testing purposes like future beta patches and content but it can also be used for testing your character configurations(skill point set up, ship loadouts, etc).

I haven't played eve online in a while, but I do remember vaguely that there are certain restrictions to prevent players from using the test server as their primary server.

However, the singularity test server was not be only used for it's named purpose but also for staged filming.

So again, any word on this from the devs? I mean it sounds like they would put this out but I'm curious.

A lot of MMOs have public test servers. So I wouldn't be surprised if PS2 had one, although PS1 never did.

ps1 did have a public test server, the launch shortcut is still on my pc. Last time I probably used it was when they were introducing the deliverer variants.

I guess it depends who had it first? So here's hoping Merc is <7! Nah, it's nice to know - he thru us for a loop on our boards the other day. We were discussing something on PSU and suddenly someone was like "which one of you is Merc" and we were all confused!

Are you sure on this? I have had converations before on what is and is not copyrightable and was told short strings such as that were not.

I looked up the info on copyright.gov and found this under what is not copyrightable. Of course this is US copyright law and I am not certain on DeltaTriads area of origin.

titles, names, short phrases, and slogans; familiar symbols
or designs; mere variations of typographic ornamentation,
lettering, or coloring; mere listings of ingredients or contents

Unfortunately your Sarcasm detector is not enabled

Back on topic, I'd like to see a test server that joebloggs and janedoe can join, so the Devs get a wide range of views and there isn't a repeat of lasher 2.5 / big fat robots / phantasm's with guns (or, to use a bf3 example - ridiculous suppression)

Ah okay lol. Well I wouldn't really mind changing it anyway tbh, it's just something I throw in when "Merc" is taken or just to avoid that.
