Test Shard should be backup of Prodo Shard

    From now on they should use backups of Regular shards to test the publishes.

    Speaking for myself, I do not use Test Center to test anything except various templates and God Suits.

    I missed Draconi's massive test the one night, and tried several times to see if any towns were invaded, either they were cleaned up really quick, which I dought, or no one plays factions on the Test Shard.

    What do you all think?

    I think they should really use Test Center for everyone, Origin for the "prodo test" for a week like it should be so we can really get bugs out...and then live....then again, i'm a sucker for punishment

    The problem with Origin being the Prodo Test Shard is, there's no one there to test ( no offence).

    During the Spring Cleaning event, with the 25 k tickets. On other shards you could run through, almost any time of day and get someone to res you.

    Origin, you almost always had to make the run back to the shrine before ressing.

    A friend packed up and moved to Origin back when it started, but has lost interest, as it is no fun being the Bully on the block when your the only one around to beat up.

    The few times that they have made copies of Prodo shards were the best.

    This way you can test your own stuff, (can my house be bigger, can I solo that beastie, if I tweak this on my template would it be better or worse, etc.)

    Also, the things they are possibly breaking, are already had by the users, and do not need to be hunted for or gathered.
