I get seriously tired of the people coming to the PTR only to "play", and what I mean about that are the people on the PTR forums who scream abour when premades are available, or complain when the PTR server goes down temporarily and say "I WANT TO PLAY!"The ones who think the PTR only means free level-capped characters to sit around and duel with. I have actually seen people on the official message boards who say they only play on the PTR, and don't like live servers anymore. I have seen people say "I pay to play on the PTR! I deserve to be on it!", and then they get corrected that no, they don't pay for the PTR.When 3.0.2 hit the PTR, it caused no end of questions from people. The game's patcher has caused confusion because it downloads and automatically installs the patches. The PTR downloaded uses the same downloader, but does not automatically install. So you got endless questions about "How do I install the PTR?", and "I installed it, but can't run it, what's wrong?"They didn't run the installer. Questions like these popped up dozens of times every day on the PTR forum. The idea of having to run an executable were lost on these people. They were used to the downloader and patcher. Every PTR there are questions like these, altho in the more recent days it's not so bad.I am glad they fixed the way the installer works. Some people were telling it to install to their default game directory, and it overwrote the game, requiring them to reinstall the game.
