Publish 67 tomorrow?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Trevelyan, Jul 15, 2010.

    Well, heres what UO.com says from nearly a week ago:

    So which of these two does he mean?

    I will try to write:

    a more extensive producer's update to discuss: the current plans for publish 67
    this will be discussed next Friday

    - or -
    a more extensive producer's update to discuss: the current plans for publish 67 (which will be released) next Friday


    The confusion for me arises with the additional part "as well as status on live events and core system updates next week."

    I read this as meaning he will discuss it this week but.. why would he also discuss the core system updates if they've already taken place?

    What do you all think?

    personnelly I am glad not only one who though that it could be publish 67 on friday and what is funny i read somewhere about these events that are leading up to the big event saturday . this could mean a publish.

    however i long ago learned not to read heavyly into anything they say. so i am assuming a letter on friday telling us publish 67 will contain something we
    will spent 2 weeks complaing about that will or will not happen depending on how widespread and nasty the complaints are.

    my other guess is that publish 67 contains the anti macroing code they already set up we will have this weekend to get warmings and will take effect next week. i do not think they can only activate it on origin so i think this is either a go live with a warning period or test the weekend and than go live. still waiting to see if they make it strong enough to mean something or a 2 week wonder till the guilty get there work around or if this will be the end with all quitting cause there gameplay was effected . so many are quitting right now makes you wonder if they have inside info on this and will not try to go along with normal play.

    I believe the intent was to convey that Friday would be the day that he would release a treatise about Publish 67. However, the structure of his grammar unfortunately introduced ambiguity into the situation.

    Would be nice to have Pub67 on TC to play with tomorrow, But I think he means to talk about what it will contain.
     
  5. I would guess they're going to introduce the ideas for publish 67. That's probably about it.

    He will discuss the current plans for publish 67 in next Friday's (this Friday) producer's update. This is what I got out of the announcement. They usually don't release publishes on Friday. Normally it is on or before Thursday so that if something major goes wrong they can work on it Friday and not the weekend.

    Me too.

    I think a comma should of been added after publish 67

    No, the comma just screws up the sentence to where it just doesn't make sense.

    This is just fine. Discuss the current plans for publish 67 next friday. Next friday they will discuss plans for publish 67.

    Don't ask me if there should or shouldn't be a comma. I was born and have lived my entire life in Oklahoma, and no one should ever ask an Okie the proper way to word something.

    I think "have" should have been used instead of "of". :gee:

    He means...[I am pretty over worked right now and my producer's letter will be out in the next two weeks. It won't affect any release so if I don't get to it for two weeks don't be worried. The content of this producer's letter will contain details about the status of live events and publish 67. You should know there will be a core system update next week. I will provide boring details if I get a few minutes to myself.]

  12. You're close...you failed to include "Soon" in there.

    Fine! The answer is I meant to have an update today on what we're doing for Pub 67.

    I ran out of time. We had a very busy week with the update to all the shards for the DB update.

    I will tell you that right now the updates for Treasure maps are going through QA; there are some updates to the EC and the classic client ... Cutoff for features for 67 was this week. Right now we are hammering out the last bugs before verifying the date for TC.

    We also went through the plans for Live events for the next several weeks.
    There will be some fiction posted today.

    That's all I have right now. Apologies for the confusion ... Comma splicing should be a felony. :)


    I will also tell you several topics you have covered on the boards in the last couple of weeks ... we are wondering if you guys are sitting in on our weekly meetings.

    We will be able to disclose more in the coming days. I'm currently limited on what I can discuss because every announcement for the next several weeks needs to go through legal and marketing first :)

    I've dropped hints to some in PMs ... some want to know .. others don't like to open their presents until Christmas ... so I'll just hush for now.

    Oh ... congrats to the EM on Drachenfels with a bouncing new baby girl!!

    Be well

    My money is on a classic Lord British pirate shard and a client for Mac and Linux users.

    Also, blackrock will have a use.

    Disappointed with us, Lord British has turned his back on his own Virtues. He has now become a vicious, savage pirate, hell-bent on pursuing a life of torture, conquest, ****, murder, and plunder. (He is also, by the way, now a bloodthirsty vampire who can walk around in daylight with the magical assistance of Nystul the Nasty, his ruthless henchman. He is also a Legendary Ninja.)

    Thus, our characters' "Moses" figure is now their greatest enemy. There is no "Jesus" or "Savior" figure, The Avatar, to save us. We are on our own, and each time we look at an ankh it's now become a symbol of evil instead of a symbol of light, and Virtue.

    Queen Dawn has her hands full controlling the eruptions of evil the villain British has caused, controlling the rebellious Factions within the Kingdom who wish to follow British into evil....And controlling the beating of her own heart, which has been sent all aflutter by the former Lord, now Captain, British's vampire-pirate-ninja allure.

  17. Yes, no matter where you run...we will find you.

    No matter what you do...we are looking over your shoulder.

    No matter how good it is...it isn't good enough.

    No matter what you fix...somebody will find a way to break it.

    I really am impressed with the effort you guys are putting in to bring UO back from the dump it's been in over the past several years. We all know how long it has been allowed to decay and we're very critical after years and years of broken promises and ignored issues on all fronts.

    Keep up the good work and we look forward to hearing about these updates.

    Seeing as updates usually come out on friday I will wait until then as I want them to finish their Q&A on the t-hunting changes before writing the update.

    My own t-hunting has gathered so much dust since AoS. I am actually kind of scared to see how much skill/stat alterations it's going to take before I send him out hunting again, lol.
