How to switch TESO Beta to North American Megaserver

TESO Beta switch European server to North American Megaserver
 
Zanimax Online Studios designed the upcoming TESO Beta to stress test the North American Megaserver, but the developer encourages players from the rest of the world to join in. If you are not from North America, there is an easy way for you to play this weekend’s TESO beta.
 

If you downloaded the European version of the beta client, switching to NA Megaserver can be done following these simple steps:
 
Windows users:

  1. Click “Settings” (marked by a cogs symbol) in the top right corner of the launcher.
  2. Change the region to “United States” and click “Apply.”
  3. Exit the launcher and locate the client’s install folder (most often C:Program Files (x86)Zenimax Online).
  4. Rename the folder “The Elder Scrolls Online (EU)” to “The Elder Scrolls Online.
  5. Open the launcher to ensure your region is still set to “United States” in Settings, and that you can access the North American server.

Mac users:

  1. Click “Settings” (marked by a cogs symbol) in the top right corner of the launcher.
  2. Change the region to “United States” and click “Apply.”
  3. Exit the launcher and locate the client’s install folder (Navigate to “Finder”, then click “Application” and finally “Zenimax Online”).
  4. Rename the folder “The Elder Scrolls Online EU” to “The Elder Scrolls Online.”
  5. Open the launcher to ensure your region is still set to “United States” in Settings, and that you can access the North American server.

Zenimax Online Studios also reminded that if you already participated in previous TESO beta tests, you do not need another beta key, old one will work too. Everything that needs to be done is patching up the client and that’s it!
 
Additionally, someone posted on Reddit this official reply from Jessica Folsom of Zenimax, regarding the TESO switch from Beta to Live game:
 
TESO Beta characters
 
Beta characters wipe isn’t anything unexpected as it is a common practice for MMO games that had Beta period, but the ability to easily switch beta client to the final version of TESO is a good decision (along with the monkey pet, we mean).
 
Upcoming TESO beta will start on Friday, February 28 and it will last until the end of Sunday, March 2.

      There is a little cog button in the top right of the launcher window. click on it and you will get additional options, including the one to choose the region.

      You have another copy of the launcher running in the background. You can either open a Task manager and end the Launcher process or just restart your computer – that will kill the process.

    I have NA download, but when I click “play” I get a “crashed reporter” that states ESO has stopped working. I even uninstalled it and reinstalled it.

    Can people on the EU server play/interact with those on the American one?

    and

    If I normally play on the EU server and switch to the American (or vice versa), will my Char follow me ?
