1.3.6: PTS Event #2

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, last weeks PTS event had a special focus on testing with friendly collision disabled.  In this video, we will take a look at some open field RvR and close quarters combat at Chillwind in Eatine. It turned out to be a rather surprising fight.

I did do some audio commentary for this video as there are certain scenes that require an explanation.

While I do not agree with removing friendly collision, I was very impressed at the performance gains.  An estimated 250 players were in the zone for the test.  Even with all of us packed into Chillwind, it was very playable.
