They just can't win can they? People complain when they don't give dates for anything and people complain when they give dates and miss them. They can't please everyone. At least they are being up front about it.

Anyone who whines about a delay like this obviously never programmed anything in their life.

While I don't like that the patch has been delayed, I would have liked it even less if the patch had gone through with those bugs. And I VERY MUCH LIKE that you explained SPECIFICALLY WHY the patch was delayed instead of being vague about it. Thank you!

I wanted to give you a quick update on Game Update 2.1.1 which, as you know from an earlier post I made, was scheduled to release tomorrow on 5/29. I am sure many of you already noticed we haven't posted maintenance messaging yet either. The reason is that during the QA process with 2.1.1 we found some pretty nasty bugs which will unfortunately be delaying the release of 2.1.1. I am still not sure when 2.1.1 will be released, but we are working to resolve the issues as fast as we can. What I can tell you is that there will not be a maintenance tomorrow morning, 5/28, to deploy 2.1.1.

Just to give you a bit of insight, one of the issues we ran into was that there were some critical Class mission blockers. We clearly don't want to release an update and have you unable to complete some class quests!

I will give you more information as soon as I have it. Specifically, when Game Update 2.1.1 will be released.

Thanks for your patience while we work this out!

Everyone got their own opinion, some people want dates some don't. I say it doesn't matter as long as they communicate in some way.

I think I prefer that they haev advised us of when they want to do a patch, then found an issue with said patch, then made an announcement advising of the issues and that the patch is postponed with no ETA until they have corrected the issue.

It is much better than the old way it was done.

CM "Patch is postponed until further notice"

Forum Poster "What's the problem"

*crickets*

CM "OK Patch back on, we're doing it in 15 mins!"

...

This is a much better way of communicating.

I'm curious, how did the update break a class quest?

I mean, aren't those quests launch content? Are you editing those files much these days?

Maybe they were trying to further limit the exp/rewards for F2P players.
