Went and looked in the PTS last night; NOT impressed.

1. The Armory was not functioning.

2. The PTS directives need an Italian ship, but there is no information on how to get one (likely within the Armory for Italian tokens).

3. The Halloween captains are FIFTEEN-pointers.

Let that last one sink in.

I hope this last one is only because it's the PTS.

What's wrong with buying 15 point captains?

Let it sink in.

It’s not the buying of them, it’s the playing of them - previous Halloween event captains, were 19-pointers (the ones you used in the space games, not the ones you could buy), which meant the space battles built a fair amount of elite commander XP for you. If they come out into the release version of space battles as 15-pointers, all potential for elite commander XP goes away.

The only way to get this new captain is to buy event crates when it goes live too!!! At least with the recent french one you could grind 85% of the "cost."

 

LOL, frog's in a pot of water.

It was sarcasm I suppose.

As I don't play the side games, and I would prefer people earned their capt. xp legit, this is fine.

One of the draws to play this special mode is the potential for EXP.  If that incentive is removed, some players will not play or play less.  Maybe WG will be testing that...

unlock the level two and three ships in the Halloween 2019 mode. There're 19 pointers. Not sure why the ones initially given are 15 pointers, but then again, seeing the armory doesn't work (why is this an issue with PTS almost every time) and some accounts didn't receive 30k doubloons or 2 weeks of premium time, its probably a WG whoopsie moment (but it surely can't, WG never has a whoopsie moment :)

Based on the fact that the WGC has been downloading a PTS Update for the last 40 friggin' minutes I think they may be fixing some of the mistakes.

The T10 ships have 19 pointers on them.  I am not sure why the first ones have 15 though.

I am also not impressed but there is a specific feedback area to post this.

Because putting it here gets much better exposure.

Okay, I see what's going on now. NP. We'll see what happens when this...

Sarcasm, no - more like condescension, but what’s the definition of a few words in a written medium?

I think I had three separate patches download for the PTS after the initial 5.5 GB chunker.
