Patch Notes reading "X changed to Y #/credits/damage/etc." You aren't fooling anyone.

We know that unless it says "increased," it's a reduction, so why not provide all the information? I want to know what it was reduced from; how significant the nerf was.

I promise it won't send me into a frothy nerd rage. I'm actually more annoyed (and even a little insulted) by the omission of this information.

You sure about that?

LOL.. yeah... I think I just saw some drip on his keyboard.

OP, MMOs are meant to be explored. If they told you every single detail in the patch, including specific numbers, you would complain that Bioware is revealing spoilers and that you have no reason to log and check things out.

Since the data being omitted is no longer in the game, it's not there to be explored, is it?

And I can't say I've ever been excited to log in to check out a tooltip, in any case.

Is there a particular note you'd like more information about? We do want to include specific information about increases and reductions where possible (you'll notice many notes with "reduced x by y (down from z)" ), but some notes may not have as detailed information as others. We'll continue working to make sure notes are as detailed as possible - we know the information is important!

The example that led me to create this post is from today's patch notes:

Quote:
The weekly Nightmare Pilgrim mission now rewards 4 Black Hole Commendations.
I'm pretty sure it used to be 6. And that's cool -- like I said, I just like knowing what it was changed from.

Thanks!

Thanks for the response! I'll see if I can get more specific information about the note. We'll also continue working to make sure our notes are as detailed as we can make them - we may not be able to provide all details for every note, but it's our goal to make sure they're clear and informative!

edit: I inquired about this note, and it appears this was a bugfix and that this particular mission was not granting commendations as intended!

It didn't used to be anything... We've killed it twice and for both weekly's, it only gave money. Nothing in the item slots in the quest reward window.

It was actually ZERO.
