    I am really curious how some of those bugs made it to expansion release. Either the focus group been really, really sloppy as some of the issues seems to be obvious or SV made some grave mistakes while releasing the expansion, after it was tested..

    Why the surprise??? This "expansion" is the same quality we've grown to expect from Starvault. (poor)

    Hmmmmm-  Maybe I am missing something here but has there even been a Patch yet? Interesting there are notes which have been posted and yet no Patch (That I am aware of) as of yet- Should we not wait until there actually IS a Patch, then see WHAT is fixed before jumping the gun and claiming these things were fixed in a "patch" which nobody has downloaded nor seen ?

    Or am I missing something?

    Is it normal to release Patch notes and then offere no patch for hours? Just curious.

    EDIT: LOL I got my answer- The Patch is in a "que"

    Per Sebastian :

    This is how CDN works:
    1. We upload files to it.
    2. Files are put in a queue.
    3. When it's our time our files will be uploaded, depending on length of queue this might take (apparently) up to 5hours.

    What we normally do is call em up, tell them to please push us forward and they have been really nice with doing that, but today we can't get a hold of anybody. In 15 min our files will be auto-pushed. Shortly after that you should get them.

    We will be changing the way we patch based on today, I crossed my fingers and uploaded 5 before the push hoping that it wouldn't take to long...I failed.

    I do not even get this at all- But more "explaination" from the "experts"- Anyhow, lets wait and see what is fixed (and what gets broken even worse) before we post about what has been fixed.

    Patch is evidently more than 5 hours late- Patch notes though, and "posts" telling us about these fixes are RIGHT ON TIME...early in fact. I love it when success is claimed for these fixes before anyone has tested them. =P

    I will take a stab in the dark and guess they are using third party servers as they cant afford hosting their own (many companies use third party) which uses said queue system. Nothing too weird, but they should probably have noted that in patch notes. 

  • deathshrouddeathshroud londonPosts: 1,366Member

    from what i understand the testers protested agaisnt the release pleading for a further 2 months of development but the devs for whatever reason couldnt wait an additional 2 months.

     

    One of the main reasons though why i think bugs get through is that the testing server is very much a work in progress, it does not mimic the live server completely since it has alot of additional code and other systems working on it that are wip or are currently on hold. So any changes that use code from the additional content or code will obviously not translate well once moved to live server.

     

    samething happened at release, all the palyers in beta insisted that MO remain in beta for at least 3-4 more months but the game released early and was one of the worst mmo launches on record.

     

    Not saying the game is bad, just that SV have terrible judgement on when to release content for the game.

    there are 2 types of mmo, imitators and innovaters.

    Your right Death-

    But its far mnore shady than that. Sv released KNOWING it wasnt ready (at Beta and with the Latest Patch) . SV wanted a bump in subs before the stockholder meeting and figured they would get it even though the Xpac wasnt working nor ready. THEN they figured most would continue to "support them" with multi subs while they fix the Xpac and get ready to start hyping the nexrt "big thing coming"

    So far this has been the pattern.

  • deathshrouddeathshroud londonPosts: 1,366Member

    thats true, but the reason is to keep the game going, they have to impress the stock holders to keep it running so if waiting 2 more months would result in game being canceled before hand then i dont think its shady. Its just survival. I also dont think that the luanch has greatly increased subs at all. I think most people were more cautious about an MO content update thanks to previous experience.

     

    The main issue is that at launch they ruined their chances by not delaying rleease a few months to iron out the game breaking issues present. This in turn resulted in a terrible reputation for the game and financial difficulty down the line. I honestly think that with awakening they really are on the verge of closing it down and they really couldnt wait much longer to release. I also think the hype and promises by henrik meant that SV felt under pressure to release the game in a timely manner as close to the original release date as possible. Afterall missing the release by 7 months would of made them look terrible and i think the subs were getting so low they were worried about running out of funds. But in turn releasing a half baked expansion is doing the same. Many of the changes just do not seem thoguht out at all its evident that the developers do not play the game and in many ways the expansion is hurting the activity of the population and many wont resub unless they see the changes and fixes they want.


    I also think that the hype and Yes saying of the developers and gms has resulted in a wide amount of interest from previous players all exicited about different promised features of which they had a habbit of just saying yes to jsut about everything people asked. Meaning many thoguht all their MO dreams where coming true with stuff like guard armor lootable, more mobs flying mobs water based mobs, fletching, etc etc. Also talking about content that isnt even planned for awakening has back fired with many community members confused asking were is xxx? i subbed for xxx? and to be answered with oh that was never coming in awakening but a future patch, or with no reply and just assuming it is coming in a hotfix which it was never promised for awakening.

    In the real world SV could not deliver all the planned features they promised and it really isnt any surprise. But what surprised most of us was jsut how broken Awakening utrned out to be.

     

    If SV do manage to fix all the issues with awakening and tweak the content to apease the majority of the community then theres a good chance MO will finally feel like a released game. But it took months to get dawn to a workable state and even now certain features dont exactly work properly from that epxansion so it just doesnt seem realistic that awakening will ever be fully working before the games demise.

    No, Lahuzer is correct.  It was due in April, which was delayed until August.  That's 4 months.

    Since Awakening's launch, they've been putting out pretty effective patches very rapidly.

    Try reading what Hancakes wrote one more time. Slower this time. Bah lets take it together. Awakening was supposed to go live on April and instead went live on Augoust. Thats 4 months delay. Maybe you, Lahuzer and Realnaste are cool with that fact but i m not since i cancelled my subscriptions right after TC patch which was worthless to my taste and untill now i ve lost the will to play the game. Latest patch before Awakening was TC which went live around November-December od 2011 if i remember correctly. So the last patch before Awakening went live in 2011 which is kinda sad and its the main reason for the low population together with the habbit of SV to deliver broken content.

    there were small patches between TC and awakening patch. Mostly to do with housing and fixing dupes.

    You ve got a valid point right there. But still no one can be asked to play a game with absolutely zero content, broken PVP, non existant PVE, laughable AI and totaly frustrating UI and pay a sub for 8 months with the promisse that all those issues will be adressed. Not that Awakening fixed any of those issues and if you ask me i would be willing to wait another 8 months if Awakening was going to do all that and if it wasnt supposed to be absolutely broken as it is.

  • deathshrouddeathshroud londonPosts: 1,366Member

    tbf i logged in recently with the recent patches and the game is much much better than before. I think its playable now and at this rate a few weeks and it will be everything the players hoped.

     

    except tindrem which needs some serious work.

    The third in line of the bugfixing patches corrupted several of my gamefiles and the only suggestion i could find on the forums was to reinstall the game. So that was it. No more money  for that joke that some people like to call game. Plus i m only one step beyond from starting legal proceedures and ask for my money back regarding the broken boxed game copy i paid for, not for the 70 Euros ofc cause my expenses will be 10-15 times that amount but just because enough is enough. I m only having second thoughts cause doing something like that will put me in line for several years and by then SV will be ancient history.
  • deathshrouddeathshroud londonPosts: 1,366Member
    on the first awakening patch i had some error, som file could not be found but an older file of the same name could. Was very frustrating and luckily a member of the community upload that 1 file so i could finish the install. I later heard someone mention you can install it fine in safe mode but i didnt try it. I was just about ready to give up as well.
