Ahead of the servers coming up with today’s 1.1.4 patch, BioWare announced the closing of the Public Test Server forum. However, do not fret. This closing is only a temporary one and the forum will open once again when a new update is available for the Public Test Server, with the caveat that BioWare will close the forum when the test client patch is the same as the live client in the future.

Hey Everyone! Starting this week, we’re making some changes to the way we manage the PTS forum. We’re making these changes to help improve the visibility of important PTS feedback and to cut down on threads and posts that do not contribute to feedback about the changes currently on the PTS. Here is how the PTS forum will operate from this point forward:
- The PTS forum will be closed for posting when the current PTS version of the game is the same as the live version of the game. We still encourage you to post your feedback in the correct subforums, but because the changes are on live servers, it is not necessary to leave the PTS forum open. When we deploy a new version to the PTS, we’ll open the PTS forum back up for feedback!
- We’ll be archiving all PTS threads when we close the forum. This will help us ensure that active threads are relevant to the current PTS version.
These changes will help us ensure that we can easily gather feedback from the PTS, and will make the most relevant feedback much more visible. We appreciate your participation and look forward to more feedback!
Also included with the announcement are new guidelines on how to post in the forum.
As always, make sure to watch the site for the official 1.1.4 patch notes here on Darth Hater as soon as they become available.
