Hey everyone,

I wanted to give you an update on the status of Game Updates 5.8 and 5.9. After reviewing our internal test results along with the feedback we’ve received from the players on our Public Test Server (PTS), we decided release 5.8 is not ready and needs a bit more time to make the necessary adjustments. The new targeted release date for 5.8 is now a week later on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. This additional time will help ensure we deliver a quality experience with Izax, the final Boss encounter for Gods from the Machine.

Also, while I have your attention, this means we will also move the release of Game Update 5.9 one additional week, too. We were planning to release 5.9 on April 24th, but the new date will be Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

Thanks all,

--Keith-

I appreciate, that you inform us that early (No /s!). Moved our planned Izax-super-special raid into the following week.

In addition, I hope, that things can be figured out properly and that Izax will be as promising as it sounded until now. Keep up the good work!

Thank you Keith.

Although none of us want the delay, I truly appreciate your honesty about it. Keep it up

Late and tested/fixed is so much better than early and buggy

So the launch of the new Conquest will not happen? What conquest event will run that week then?

Appreciate the heads up. My guild's looking forward to the new Conquest, but better to iron out any bugs with the patch in general than to release something broken and sour folks on the new Conquest system or Izax or whatever else is good in the patch : )
Appreciate the help/snark in the above post? Click here to help me out!

Ugh, this should have been announced earlier. Don't get me wrong, I want the new boss to be polished, so if it needs extra time so be it, but please realize that since you announced this would be a NiM-tuned boss with a time-limited title, players were building teams and scheduling raids for the announced date. Now having to reschedule is very frustrating.

There's that chance that everything was on schedule, until today happened. Just a thought.
