    It does make one wonder how bugs fixed in previous patches end up appearing again.

    Of course, one frightening, yet viable explanation is that not everyone is working on the same test code, and when they upload the patch, if the stuff is merged with an older code set, the changes that someone else made are reverted out.

    In fact, it's really the only one that makes sense, because you'd think that if a particular system being recoded had similar effects that it would be noted somewhere that "Hey, if you touch this system, double-check that system."

    It's a bit scary.

    The utter lack of a functional QA check before release is completely unprofessional. Sadly, its Mythic SOP.

    This. I don't know if this sort of quality came out of my work...... I'd be fired and someone would probably be dead.

    I take pride in my work... I guess I just expect everyone else to have the same sense of work ethic that I have... Perhaps I shouldn't... but I do.

    Call it professionalism or whatever... but honestly I think you ought to be able to NOTICE things like botching the Hueing.

    Holy mother of god! "Prepatchday", That's a term I haven't heard in relation to UO in probably 13 years!

    This brings back awful memories of when they changed it so when casting a spell your spellbook popped into your hand, thus ruining the much loved precast/instahit mages. Or perhaps the nerfing of the original archer templates. (Which, unlike the recent supposedly overpowered templates, was a respected and fun template to play. How many here even remember the old x-bow mages during the noto days?)

    Maybe that's what was ordered? Maybe they had very restricted guidelines they had to comply with? Good (for the client), or not, you still have to meet them, or else, eh?

    Might have been something like: 1 eye shut, no mouse, MS Paint - you got 5mins, GO. I'd say they met their goals. QA? A blob is a blob, long as it doesn't say my llama is fat, we're good to go
