The official "Its Thursday and my F5 key is broke" thread

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Garaba, Apr 24, 2008.

    Garaba Guest

    Alright I know everyone is excited, so take it out on this thread.


    *goes to UO.com and keeps pressing F5*
     
  2. I'm just hoping they decide to finally get to the finale. Would be nice to have a change up to the event for the weekend and let us bring a close to it so we can get ready for the turn in then prepare for the next part of the story arc.
     
  3. I will save most of my excitement for next week when it actually becomes relevant to me.
    I am a little excited and curious to see what the new stuff will be though. A little scared too since I am afraid the cocoa trees got swept under the rug again. I hope not [​IMG]

    How sad is that? I am more interested in new trees/seeds then I am the event. [​IMG]

    You mean they don't spend 20 hours a day working on UO for us? I gave them 4 hours of sleep time..that's enough right?Well no wonder there are so many complainers around here! [​IMG]

    In all seriousness though, I doubt we will get word of anything early in the day.Most likely later in the afternoon.

    Larisa do you have errands to run today?That's when the word will come about it. [​IMG]

    ya'll crack me up... The devs can't ever get anything right people are leaving daily becuase of that fact he says what? I'll tell you what he said he said very early in the week for origins meaning like Tuesday and other shards following towards the end of the week like Thursday or Friday... Well if you ain't seen it at least on origins you ain't gonna see it for at least another week. And by the way the way this company is you might have to wait another month or better heck maybe even never.

    Holy you know what calm down some of you.

    It's still in the am all over America. These people are not chained to their desks overnight at some computer kennel.

    It's like when I see people post 'JEREMY WHY DON'T YOU RESPOND' or 'I NEED ANSWER RIGHT NOW K THX' and then complain about it and it is like on a friday night, Saturday or Sunday. I'm totally blown away by how people think that they are doing this 24/7.

    Trust me, I know because _I_ get that at work. I get voice mails from like at 6pm telling me that a staff's shift end at 11pm and they want a call back before then... it's really aggravating.

    Patience, people... patience.

    I for one would rather the UO Team be comfortable with their update times. If they aren't really ready to publish the new content, then I am patient until they feel the new stuff has been tested thoroughly and is ready to go. Thanks for the update, Jeremy! *smiles*

    WHAT! BUG FIXING! TESTING! QUALITY ASSURANCE!

    Son, you have got a lot to learn! You are an MMO developer, QA is your players job. Just push it out 5 weeks early, those people pay for thier crash bugs and hack sploits. Don't want to keep them wanting now do ya?
    */sarcasm*


    In all seriousness, if it's buggy, let QA pound it some more. Just remember to hand them my KR client after this pub gets another pass from QA! [​IMG]

    I know it's annoying for most folks, but I'm glad it's being held off.

    1. Because QA needs the extra time to make certain it's not buggy.
    2. We're moving this weekend and I'll miss it if it goes out today.

    Ok selfish reason for number 2 there, but eh, 1 still stands as the most important.

    No buggy quick releases, take your time.

    *Laughs* Eat Paste...that made me laugh.

    Like I said, just because Jeremy said it MIGHT be today doesn't mean it WILL be.

    Darn impatient people! Greed rules all...*sighs* Does ANYONE play the game JUST to play anymore? Or is it all about the items now?? GIMME MY TRADE IN EVENT I HAVE 34255748563585658 EVENT ITEMS TO TURN IN WHAAAA!!!

    It sounds like this publish has a TON of stuff in it...trade ins....coding for every item?? Housing changes....putting in new gumps?? more coding...who knows what else....that's ALOT of work, I for one am happy to wait so they can get most of the bugs out before we get it.

    you know what is the sad part. If they just said what you can turn in for what 90% of us would be willing to wait it is the suspense that is driving me mad

    Holding back a publish for more bug testing is understandable. Not posting the publish change list is not. There is no good reason why they can only post the change list when it is on Test Center.

    Now it is just going to be another boring weekend with no substantial UO discussion.

    You're definitely not alone.

    I don't get upset if they bump back the release of content. I get upset if they release content that's riddled with obvious bugs. I get mad when I lose stuff because of bugs that never should have made it out of QA.

    I'm happy they've bumped it back.

    It'd be a helluva lot easier on fansites if you'd post this type of official information on the uo.com page so that we can inform our readers of whats going on too.

    I think if they would enlighten us on what the turn ins are going to be then people would settle down. All other publishes we are notified as to what the content will be and so far nothing.... even with the tokuno stuff we had a heads up so everyone was out collecting more because they knew they wanted dyes and so on!
     
  34. Thanks, Jeremy!

    I figure that if the publish contents haven't been published yet, there are a few surprises you'd like to give us. That's okay by me. I like surprises. But we'd really appreciate knowing at least a little about the turn-in process. Community Collections, Clean Up Britannia, Blackrock Traders, Treasures of Tokuno, or something different? Approximate turn-in ratios (5:1 minimum, 100:1 maximum, for example)? A gleeful announcement that yes, there are secrets, and no, we can't have them yet (finger-steepling and hamster-petting optional)?

    I know some of these might not be nailed down until QA has chewed on the new code for awhile, but we're really hungry for details! [​IMG]

    The reason they are not posting publish details I THINK is because of the housing exploit changes they are putting in...no need to tip off the cheaters too far in advance...besides, if we KNEW what we were going to be able to turn in, everyone would be busy throwing things away they didn't need and not playing the game, what fun is that?? *Grins*

    1. Thank you Garaba for starting a pre-emptive thread early so there aren't a gazillion +1 posts on what may or may not happen today. Was a great find bringing up my stratics browser *hugs*

    2. Thank you Jeremy for letting us know as early as possible that QA needs more time so that you don't have pages of "I can't believe this got past QA when I found it in a millisecond upon logging into TC; QA suckeths; what QA?" if it went out prematurely. Appreciate it and look forward to whatever surprises are in store.

    I say we all need a long hot soak in another Draconi made hot tub. What say you?

    [/ QUOTE ]True.
     
  39. Some people would be throwing out items not being turned in most others would be out collecting the items that will be turned in. Actually...letting us know which items specifically will be turned in might get more people playing this weekend. A lot of people I know have given up playing the "event" and are back to doing regular stuff.

    I don't mind waiting. I would rather it come out with as few bugs as possible.
    I would enjoy knowing some of the details though. I understand and agree they shouldn't tell EVERYTHING like the exploit/bug fixes.
    But there has to be some stuff they can let us know that won't effect too much.
    Like the items being turned in? (Draconi already told us the cloaks won't be but not to toss them they have a future use)
    Are we getting the cocoa trees and seeds?
    I am sure there are other juicy tidbits they could let us know. Maybe we will get some info in the FOF tomorrow. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the heads up, Jeremy. I hope you guys are seriously reviewing the faction changes to make sure they go in correctly. I'd love it even more if I knew you were completely reevaluating the changes for load balancing and multiple characters per account in factions to see if they all make sense, but I think that's too much to hope for.

    Is someone making sure that the 30-day age rule to join factions on Test Center is waived so we can test the changes when they go in? Also, will there be enough time to test the faction quit process before you go live to the production shards to make sure you really can get out in 3 days and that if you put multiple characters from one account in factions that quitting with one character doesn't mess up the other characters?

    So I take it we're not going to be seeing the finale, or at least a change to Moonglow for the weekend huh?

    Hell, I'd even go for more of the Magincia Daemons, without even the Light or Void variety just as a change of pace and another chance to get the named blackrock boxes.

    Its all about stealing a CAR and popping at the cops.

    If we have to wait till Monday just to get stuff on the test centre, with no changes for the weekend, then the only thing im looking forward to is GTA 4!

    But that doesn't mean the event itself can't progress to the next stage. One is a change to the client side, the other the server side.
