As of 3:15pm PST (6:15pm EST), the Test Copy server is being rebooted for testing Battlegrounds. From the EQ2 Forums:
Battlegrounds are up on Test and Test-Copy!! Teams who win their matches between 5 and 8pm PST every day that the BG’s are up for testing will get an awesome battlegrounds cloak for their characters!
As a special Battlegrounds event, several members of the SOE staff will be available for match-ups on Thursday, February 11th from 4 until 6pm PST.
Our SOE teams will play anyone who wants to challenge us and (if you beat us!) the winners will receive a special in-game title after the event!
So make sure you head on over to Test and Test-Copy to practice and we’ll see you Thursday!!
Battlegrounds have been activated on the Test Copy server and we’d like to see people starting to join as soon as possible.
We will be re-enabling the /testcopy command today, so if you aren’t on this server, go ahead and queue yourself up.
We expect a lot of people requesting a copy, so it might take a little time to get everyone moved over.
Expect bugs and expect crashes so if you notice something out-of-place please report it to us using the /bug or /feedback command.
To access battlegrounds, press Alt-Z (the old Zone Reuse window). The first tab should allow you to select a match and queue yourself or your group.
NOTE: Some players are reporting crashes with EQ2Maps and Battlegrounds. For the time being you may need to uninstall EQ2Maps and use the default UI.
