mass testing on the 18th - indicates to me that the incursions patching has been shifted back to the 22nd

2mil points on Sigularity as a reward? Why would we need 2 mil skill points on a test server =) I bet if you gave 2 mil points for Tranq, you would have thousands of people joined the test:)

Giving such a fake reward will not bring any interest to players, I wouldnt even bother reinstalling SiSi, give like 100-200K sp on Tranquillity instead, half your active players will show up.

But they don't want half the active players, they want 400-550+. Having so many players means that the logs become all but useless. And anyway, I think it's a nice reward. Gives people a chance to try things they're training for on TQ, which certainly interests me. Giving SP on TQ would also be unfair to the players which can't make the mass test owing to real-world commitments.

Stop trolling. Sisi is great for testing ships and this test is to make the game better.

If you really want reward on TQ.. well
Noone will miss you.

Well 2mil sp, shame it's on sisi as I'm rarely thier except for the odd mass test.

Only thing is this is kinda a catch 22, yes I'm sure you'l give us the 2mil sp as a reward like your promising but as everyone knows, whenever a expansion is released all the accounts from tranq are mirrored and copied into sisi meaning that whatever sp bonus you give us on sisi will be wiped out with the next expansion.

And guess whats coming out soon.

We are holding tests normally on Thursdays and sometimes on Saturdays. These tests will help us to test performance improvements and to find potential performance problems with new features.
So, will this use the Incursion build or or a branch of Tyrannis 1.2?

Actually they redistribute up to 6 million sp on mirror day. Depending on participation in the last three tests before the mirror.

will this be a post incursion or pre incursion testing version on the 18th of novemeber if it is post incursion i am guessing they will use any hotfixes and then retest lag levels. That said testing to date has already been using the Incursion code so really they have it done a few times

And that's why it single handily increased the turn out by 800%

Theres been a lot of disscusions about buying/getting skill points on TQ and anyway you put it the majority of people do not agree whit it. Sisi is a testing server and the fact that we are getting 2mil SP reward on it it freaking awsome gives you a chance to see in what direction to train, what would come usefull to you etc. etc.. anyways a great reward but iam sure people would turn out even whitout the reward cuss in the end this is mostly benificial to us : )

Singularity is now updated with a new build (Incursion), both auto-patch and SisiLauncher should work. Warning: The patch from Tranquility is about 1.5GB.

We are now also including a test of remapping of systems, which will happen at the end of the test.

Babakuk will there be a database mirror ? And regarding the skill points do we get them before or after the mass testing. Would love to put them in subssystems and bring my legion.

Both the full client, and the TQ > SISI patch are reporting broken on unpack (the first stage of install).

What gives? Is one of the CDN servers broken?

I actually planned on being at this mass test, setup my client last night and go to log on 30 minutes early today and... 1.5GB patch?!? Looks like I'm going to miss the start of it now :( It'd be nice if you released patches this big earlier on days you also plan on doing mass testing.

Same here was on sis last night and all fine got rdy for mass test today and login with 40mins till test and hit with a 1.5gb update NO GOOD as its taken longer than 45 mins to get sisi running again as the patch now wont work have to install full client, thanks CCP next time can we have the patches a day before the mass test.

Same here.. Waiting for the patch to finish. Hope I still get the full 2mill SP for this since you released the patch so late.

I plan for the next neural remapping (can do remapping March, 12) for maybe (into other things) train for Tengu in L5. That 2M SP allows me to train all but Caldari Strategic Cruisers V, so can try to find some uber prober in SiSi and "test" if he can insta-probe me. If the answer is yes, won't need to trash a lot of time in TQ.
Better now? :)

CCP, I await for my 2M SP.

I use it for testing new builds that I am working toward without actually spending tons of money on. I was able to test out Proteus builds without spending a 3/4 of a bill on Tranq to see it not work.

I also was ready in next system to do the mass test a week early for the test on the 11th and was not able to because of the massive update..
will i be compensated for the 2 mil sp. i was looking forward to this and the time alloted without any warning that i rushed home from work for. only to see i couldn't do it in time..
almost an hour later with the patch done. a little too late..
do all of us that had this problem get reimbursed for this problematic download? we were not notified in time enough.
it would be great to have the sp.. so that i would be encouraged to do the next mass test thnx ccp

Yes i see alot of people with the same problem.
If ccp want us there in time to do there testing they should have warned us of the massive downloadsome of us have a life.
I myself was in school and came home to do the test... only to find the patch that was way too big.. by the time i was done the test was already done 2 hours later.....
please ccp do give us the 2mil skill points. we did try.
it would be greatly appreciated to try out new stuff i been waiting in anticipation for since the last mass test.
thanks in advance ;-)

p.s. to everyone even though it is not on this thread i did see a mass test going on . on the 16th against the new sansha supper carrier. why is this test not listed on this page..
the threads all should have this update if you expect everyone to show up.
lets get it together people.
this is gonna be a good preview of what to come in tq
also what is up with the right click function on sisi now.
we cant even go into other ships in the hanger.... what changed? also the graphics look all fuzzy even on high resolution.
its a back step from when the initial incursion download was put.

do the 2 mill sp stay only until next mirror or are they still on your account after mirroring?

BTW: in game it says start is at 02:00 not 20:00

When a new mirror is put on Singularity: We are re-applying the SPs of the last three masstests, so if you have participated in all of them you will get 6M skill points.

Thank you for the info! I informed the correct ppl to get the calendar-entry changed.
