As it seems there is a decent amount of mis-information present in this thread I figured something needed to be said.

Ok so here is goes, when ever a major patch such as a new season is to be tested. The Tribble test server is used for testing that new major update content. As they can not, and do not want to put the live game on hold since there are still going to be minor changes that need to be made, The Red Shirt test server is used for this. This is how they have done it for every major patch to date and this how they are doing it this time around. If anyone doubts this go and read the following post in the Red Shirt forums which states exactly what is happening.
