So I can understand that the wipe was delayed due to the late roll-out of 0.1.5 but the blog post stated that Bossa were hoping for “early/mid January”.
It would be nice to know if there is a date in mind so we can start the wipe hype train for real, start some free-for-all PvP events or anything!
It’s a patch a lot of people are waiting for and I’m sure there’s a bunch that would love to go all out before the wipe (myself included) but would just be lovely to have some warning 🙂
On a more positive note, the 0.1.6 update that’s been worked on alongside 0.1.5 is currently going through it’s bug bashing phase with QA and so far it’s looking like it’ll be on track to come out early December, though that’s dependent on 0.1.5’s release. Either way, the wait time between 0.1.5 and 0.1.6 will be much shorter than it has been between previous updates! (Weeks, not months.)
A perfect example why offering estimates ahead of a release candidate isn’t best practice, things can go awry and push dates back. Remember if a big problem is found the build then leaves QA, goes back for fixing and then into QA again. Worst case scenario those fixes can then have unintended side effects; it’s a cyclical and iterative process.
AW FUCK YEAH TWO WEEKS AWAY…HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…SO MUCH FUCKING HYPE WOOOOOOOO
DON’T LET US DOWN BOSSA WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
The biggest thing I’m exited for is more islands to explore and boarding defense weapons. Wish we could save are ship designs but oh well probably come up with a better one. So cross your fingers and hope it comes out in the soonish!
