What exactly happened to the old Test Server, Roheryn? All I see is talk of Bullroarer now.

Roheryn is gone. They shut it down entirely as it was kind of just a waste of resources. People only used it just prior to a book release and then it stagnated over and over again.

Bullroarer is similar, except it only opens for bigger patches (such as Book 7). They cloned Elendilmir for it, but anyone can make a character on it if you download the test client.

Rorheryn was far more of a preview server in that what was on there always wound up going live. They actually patched Bullroarer this morning with more fixes to test out, which is a nice change.

I don't get it. Why didn't they just expand Roheryn's functionality? Instead they shut it down and start from scratch with a new server that's basically Roheryn+bigger patches? Seems redundant, like they could've just expanded Roheryn to accomplish the same thing. Is there a Massively post on when Bullroarer's launch so I can stop wasting the comments on this topic?
