Curious about wipe (hype?!)
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 🙂
There are issues with the 0.1.5 patch so I assume 0.1.6 together with the wipe won’t be happening until sometime in February at the earliest.
My guess is May…
There’s no definitive date yet.
The 0.1.6 build which comes with the wipe is currently going through QA at the moment, hopefully, if no other problems are discovered it should go through in the next 2 weeks.
It’s super important to note that any date given at this stage is tentative
When we know for sure we’ll announce it with an official blog post e.t.c. We’ll try and give you guys as much lead up as possible and time for us to drum up a bit of hype around it too.
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.)
3 months (and counting) of Quality Assurance.
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.
Thanks Kirk for letting us know, of course it’s understandable that no date right now will be definite but just an idea as to where you guys are with it is plenty (well, for me!) 🙂
Good to know that everything is currently going well, can only hope that no nasty bugs arise!
can only hope that no nasty bugs arise!
Nooooo! You jinxed it!!! 😉
If 0.1.6 takes a long time then its all Kaita’s fault.
Oh gosh haha I really hope I haven’t jinxed it! xD
Hmm well @shade-the-wanderer, all I want is some fun PvP battles before the patch so if it delays then blame me, find me and come fight me mwuahaha! >:D
