PTR Patch Notes: 10/21/14 Update

Carbine updated the PTR and here's the patch notes! Now that they're done testing the megaservers, the PTR has gone back to the Nexus realm and is itself a megaserver, with the added benefit that European players can now help test again. Check out the official post here or read the notes below!

  • PTR copies of the Entity and Warhound Megaservers have been retired, and PTR Nexus has returned -- now with Megaserver technology of its own. All your characters from PTR Entity and Warhound are gone, and your former Nexus characters have been restored. This also means that Europe can now help test again!
