There is good news for those who have not been able to test and try out a few new features due to the time differences and the short opening times of the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS test server. The current PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS test server will stay online until the game is released.
The developers have announced the end of the Early Access phase for December 20th, from which point the game will be officially released with version 1.0 on PC.
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS - PTR until release
As publisher Bluehole announced via Twitter, the transition of the test server to phase 2 should also take place without shutting down the server. They also thank the players for helping with testing.
Players, the test servers will stay open until PC 1.0 comes out on live servers! The transition to phase 2 will be relatively seamless and there won't be any downtime today. There will be maintenance periods to deploy patches as needed. We highly appreciate all your help.

A second tweet refers to the feedback thread in the official forums:
Please continue giving us your feedback and reporting bugs on our official forums: https://forums.playbattlegrounds.com/forum/40-test-server/… It helps us make a better game for you.
Because all testing and trying out is useless if you don't give the developers the appropriate feedback. So try out the new desert map, the new vehicles and weapons or jump through the world with the revised "vaulting & climbing" system and then share your experiences on the forums.
