This should be warned in time because, imagine that as you mention we warn and open the votes a few days after the test phase, do you think it would be fair for players to know about the reset some days ago before the official release? For what? To keep them "wasting their time"?
I don't understand this point, after all until the new client is not ready, will not be released to the normal server (as official).
the server testing was not supposed to be today? Hardlock
