    Greetings Avatars,

    We need to do some performance stress testing on Monday April 23 at 3 PM CDT (20 UTC) on the QA server (prior to Release 53 going live Thursday April 26). So we are going to have a dance party on my ship, the Queen of Chaos, in Rift's End (a player owned town). During the party the programmers will be profiling and we will summon some boss creatures to fight (and of course degrade performance) underneath the ship.

    Remember playing on the QA server and reporting bugs there makes you eligible for the rare testing incentive rewards. However in order to get as many people as possible we are also going to randomly award some additional prizes including some handmade gear by myself and Atos as well as some of the ultra rare testing incentive rewards (corpion chair!!!).

    And if we get at least 50 people at the party for 45 minutes we will reward everyone by turning on double XP on the live servers for one week when Release 53 goes live!!!!

    WINNERS LIST: We will be adding these items to each player's account in the next few days. The crafted items may take a little longer as they actually still need to be made (and they will be mailed. :)

    • Alpha Fishstick: Atos Crafted Item
    • Ash-Housewares: Bugsprayer w/ Emote
    • Cownivore: Butterfly chair
    • majoria70: Corpion Chair
    • sethry: Ants Cloak
    • Silberfarn: Insect Leg Table
    • taualtari: Ants Cloak
    • Tirello: Ants Cloak
    • Verit: Bugsprayer w/ Emote
    • WindSilvermoon: Darkstarr Crafted Item

    This maybe a silly question, but I can't seem to find where you download the QA server to access it.

    this is last month's announcement with instructions. watch for a new qa forum to be created and an announcement there, generally from BurningToad. if you're doing the standalone you can install the patcher now but don't bother running it until the new build is announced, as it'll just spend a lot of time downloading last month's before then.

    I will be there! If I bring my pet, does that count as 2? He's a good dancer!

    Oh I just sold away my AMD Radeon RX 460 4Gb GPU for 123 USD this morning to save money for a new CSC camera and right now my rig has just an AMD Radeon HD 6670 GPU and I don't have any money for a new min spec GPU so I definitely won't be there. :p
