Thing I have with PTRs are that none of my friends actually be there.I got cataclysm beta midway its life but I went there only once or twice before there was 2 months left to the beta. Firstly because there was no premades at all until very late on the game. Secondly noone of my friends were there. Leveling can only occupy me so far.. but without guild chat, friends to group up with, to do dungeons with or just generally have fun and TALK TO it kills the mood.For example when two of my friends finally got beta access it was most fun we had and most content we ever done. Doing PvP or heroics alone just felt lacking..Recently I've tried to get my friends to join PTR but they are so focused on "nah I'd rather pvp/level alt/focus on raiding (which all seem to take 7 days and 5 hours a day)" or just plain "why would I bother lol".Also the minorish things about gameplay for example. EU PTR servers are located on US..you have 200 ms lag base and your own lag added to that. Even if you had 50 ms at live you have 250ms on PTR. Not much but still it can go to crazy numbers.Secondly EU PTR seems very minor and "not much we care about", I mean when I look at US PTR pictures I see GMs flying around with their mounts, "Lets do BGs/Heroics with blues!" (Heck, when beta had "BGs with blues!" event at US servers EU side for BGS werent even active half of the beta -_-)EU forums are joke when it comes to suggestions and such that are vital on PTR. We only have community managers as blues. No dev reads EU forums. And most threads gets locked because of "flame fest" because some troll pretends to be offended.
