We can read. They had a "testing phase" for the last patch -- so we are looking for something a little more robust this time.

It is amazing how many people are asking for them to change even more things.....

They tried to fix 2 things and brought the servers down for 12+ hours? Imagine how long it would be if they actually introduced new features...

We can only hope... The testing for the last patch was clearly not rigorous enough by any measure.

So, not directly picking on you kinda thing you're just the last person who talked about missing out on games and it reminded me of old times. Anyone else remember having to wait 12+ hours for people to patch/update/fix text-based MMOs? Please say I'm not the only one.

I dont see why everyone thinks they should get something just because of this problem. THey dont have to give you anything, but it would be nice....yet all you do is badmouth them and demand you get something.

If I go by the previous track record, I'm sure there will be new features introduced. I'm not sure they will be intended.

Well said. And the sad part is, if we are compensated for this inconvenience it will be with more XP points. A few cartel coins would be nice since I'm not going to ever be making any micro transactions anyway. The last thing I coded was a simple web app with a python/php backend, and I screwed the code up pretty bad at one point with a few find+replace alls meant to create a single class for some repeptitive functions in the code. Took a few hours to get everything right again. But that was a freelance job, just me working on it, and I make sure all my code is fine before making it live. If I inconvenienced someone I would give the some kind of compensation. Actions speek louder than words. XP costs BW nothing to give. Cartel coins would show true empathy for the player base And XP is way too fast as is. I would have to make alts of the same classes just to catch up on the story I missed from being overlevelled for sidequests. But regardless, gl BW team, hopefully this hotfix rolls out smooth, May the Schwartz be with you.
