This is exactly what I was thinking. The existing test server has like 11 people on it. It's hard enough to get a full raid together these days, yet an army of people are going to have time to test raid content (which even under the best of circumstances is not feasible)? I appreciate the dev's not having the staff to put timely fixes through. However, and as Errrorr noted, too many of the issues are front-end, so this test server stuff fixes nothing really. IOW: If you don't have the staff to produce a quality product, cutting the number of fixes down by half is not going to solve the problem. I also noticed no such announcement was made on the eq1 forums. This smells like a transition into maintenance mode. It's probably not, but that's what it smells like.
