    I got my crafter to make me an Advanced training dummy.
    Now i like the graphics for it and the fact that it can hit you back.
    BUT......It doesn't work with Throwing :cursing:
    It trained me to 35 and that was it. No more points gained in the next hour of madly clicking my mouse button.

    I can only assume that once again the devs didn't test this before sending it live? Or just forgot to add Throwing to the skills it's supposed to train to 60.

    Another fail in the new 'booster'.

    Tell me again, what exactly are we paying money for these days? It's getting to the point where i actually think my daughter could do better than these programers/testers......
    :mad:

    It could possibly be that the throwing skill was left out. I brought wrestling up to about 55 using one when I realized I could gain faster wrestling wolves & bears.

    well our huge tc1 population failed on this one i guess. they just to busy getting the best stuff they can think of and going to fel to get some kills since they can't on any production shard. seriously ask yourself how much time do you spend on tc? well ? stuff not tested and reported on = broken i would say its a 50/50 split on responsibility for this oversight players for not testing and devs for not thinking.

    wow...
     
  5. our ?

    hmmmm ... discrepancy detected
    classical blame algorithm running ... ding!
    percentage totals incorrectly extrapolated

    failure to participate in tc1 phase
    determined through self incriminating statement: our huge tc1 population failed
    false claim to possession through use of possessive "our"
    false claim as to size huge
    false proposition that tc1 failed acceptable publish (origin final pass/fail)
    failure to detect a single bug in original publish test
    failure to re-report all detectable bugs unresolved(legacy)
    failure to humbly thank ANY persons resolving any bugs found and/or resolved
    failure to harass dev team for any bug resolution at all
    assumption that anyone else besides self is responsible for conditions prevailing

    revised percentages determined
    WildWobble 99.99% at fault for training dummy error ... zzzzzzzz
    one one hundredth of one percent sum total of troll value

    WildWobble 100.00% troll fail :thumbup:

    Now we all know the devs don't worry bout testing new code that is what we are here to do for them. Taking the time to test all the warrior skills on that dummy would take up too much of the time they need create new bugs.

    They should offer a reward for the first person to report a bug from the test center.
    That means the first person to report a previously unreported bug that is confirmed

    Really....I stopped going to TC because many bugs that are reported there are never fixed anyway. And suggestions for improvement are normally ignored. It gets old when broken stuff is reported on TC, but the same broken stuff still shows up on Production Shards.
    So, no--Not my Responsibility.

    /this ...and everything else he said in that post

    I did my part - checked to see if the Vesper dupe bug was fixed, then left happy

    The programmer bears ultimate responsibility for writing bug-free code. I do not accept the premise that as a paying customer, it's my job to debug code. If I find a bug, I'll report it with as much detail as I can. But it's not my primary responsibility to find bugs.

    Boycott test center and make the devs do their jobs. They can't use us for a crutch if we don't let them. In this relationship we are the enablers.

    They used to reward you for finding unique bugs.
    Heck, i found the beginner area bug that let you max your skills in 1 use of the skill. A major game changing bug....what did i recieve? a named shirt? a special weapon? a mount???? nope i got a month free.....oh and yes they still charged my cc for that free month too.

    I stopped reporting bugs or testing after i was part of the closed beta for SA, 1 out of the 22 bugs i reported got sorted before release so now i don't even bother.
    As has been said, its not my job to bug test. Thats what i pay a subscription for. F2P then yes i'd have to resign myself to the fact of a bug ridden game but i shouldn't have to in a paying game.
    It's not like the new boosters were full of new content either........:rant2:

    I have bugs I reported in ML beta that haven't even been looked at, lol, why bother with tc1 if the bug reports just get ignored. (especially since, being TC1, the asshattery you have to put up with there is insane)
