How about actually updating the players on the testserver so they represent a more current revision of the ones on tranq.???? Every frickin time I try to logon to it to test out a new ship, new skills whatnot, the profile is at least 2 or 3 months old!!

What's the use of a testserver if there is nothing to test?

The testserver is not for u to test your skills or ships.
The testserver is to test new changes in the game before they hit TQ

Was updated last week. How about checking next time before spamming a whine thread.

I did check it that is why I'm posting about it. And to the other poster: nah... most eve players who are serious about their gameplay use the testserver out for training purposes or perfecting tactics... So no, the testserver is not only used for what you say.

Besides, if CCP wants us to test say... a carrier nerf... How do you test it when the carrier can not be used on the test server?

Carriers can be used by plenty of people that know how it was before the nerf. There is no need to give everyone maxed out characters.

Also, if you did check, you WOULD have read that the mirror is around 1 week old. Besides, the test server was not designed for playing around with new ships / shipfits, it was designed for testing, and franctly, up to date skills are not really required for that.

Have had Gallente BS 5 for years, ie sometime last year, recently when I go to the test server, I find the skill has been dropped to lvl 4, takes 30 days to retrain, so the idea that the server is a week behind the main game is bull

previously was able to fly carriers and dreads, was testing them out, now I can't and get all sort of pony and other excuses why have lost the skill

You most likely had a bug, the mirror was indeed a week old last time I checked :P

strange that it happened twice then, was wanting to test specific cap ships, would have taken me 30 days to relearn BS 5 and then all the other skills and then the server is replaced part way thru learning

none of my other alts suffered any skills loss either

Checking the character/skill history it looks like the last mirror actually went on 9/1/08
My character skills did translate from that time point.

I do use 'sing' to test different ships, POS setups and just to see how things work. It's much cheaper than losing millions on Tranquility due to mistakes from things I haven't done before.

I have read the post on why CCP doesn't "mirror" the server's as frequently as they do and I understand what goes on behind the scenes.

It doesn't stop me from wishing that they could schedule it for at lease once a month though.Smile
Going several months in between seems a bit long to me.

You can train skills in Singularity too... don't really need mirror that often.
