Beta Characters -> Live
 
I've played a lot of different Betas, and I know the general rule is that Beta characters do not transfer to live. They are wiped, and everything starts fresh. However, since this beta test is a little different than your average beta, considering that there is a Live client running in tandem, is there any chance that the characters we create here will transfer to the Live F2P client?

Please don't flame me for the question, I do understand that in most betas, all characters are wiped. I was just hoping that there might be a chance that these would stick around, seeing how there really isn't a progression issue. Especially considering that our characters that are live already will be staying at whatever level they are currently at.

Thanks in advance for any input!

My characters bio reads:

'I'm too young to die, i don't want to be deleted'

I doubt that they'll be able to/willing to trandsfer them to holodeck, but would it not be possible to store the characters for use on future test servers?

Most players do become quite attatched to their Captains and boffs

Would be nice if those chars would carry over to the regular post F2P test server, however for sure they don't belong onto live servers.

No, nada, niet, no way hozay with a sprinkling of HELL NO.

Test Characters never EVER go to live servers. You obviously knew this policy is inherrantly common and accepted that policy when you started the test character.

As such: No, you do not get to bring your test character onto the main server.

PRO-TIP:
MAIN SERVER - This is where you make characters you want to keep
Test Server - This is where you make crash test dummies to get wrecked, destroyed and otherwise maimed for the benefit of your Main server characters.

What happens on the test server STAYS on the test server.
End of Story.

There is zero chance of this. It is highly exploitable to say nothing of the bug potential.

This seems relevant.

^^ this.

Since bugs are common on test servers it can most likely be that you can find an exploit to level faster than normal. In some case bugs have made it so you can level in a few hours. Not to mention the constant changes in currency etc.

maybe not the toon but the level would be kewl to make a new VA/LG as a reward if you had one on tribble

Ummm, why? Not like it takes very long to level a toon to VA/LG on holodeck as is without the through the roof xp granted on tribble atthe moment. I have a fleetmate who just recently leveled a new toon from start to VA in a weekend, granted not everyone grinds like this but seriously, it is not hard to reach cap in this game as is.
