I have to say the last few days have been excellent.
Every day i have logged into the web page to see whats going on, and each day there has been something from Xyson! even if it is just what they are working on it keeps us informed and aware whats going on.
A big thank you for such a refrshing change from the usual! well done all.
the last update leads me to believe they have no testing server at all. unless there is something specific to production they are trying to test. I know they dont have a pile of money but I get the feeling we will have to be paitent in the long run, not just for this round.
Thats ok with me...here for the longhaul this game could end up being something special...so patience i can deal with.
I really get the feeling we are all going to be part of creating a top gameing experience here. Not only are we having a say in the direction of the game, but we will be the ones that shape the world and dictate how the game will expand.
it's like we are pioneers!
We have a test server, it's just much more efficient to find and fix the latest problems with data from a few hundred than from us trying to fill the test server with enough characters. The latest problems are new as of a little more than a week ago and were caused by improvements to the saving process (they will be improvements once the bugs are corrected).
So we're patching straight to the public right now. This is not how things will be handled after launch. We'll run changes through the test team first.
