Patch 1.3 Delayed One Week

Postby Kalah » Apr 5 2012, 15:44

A quick post on <a href="/http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/66 ... 19317">the official forum</a> alerts us that the patch has been delayed and will be released <i>next</i> week instead of this week.



Obviously, a snag was found during the quality control testing and the code needs a bit more polishing before it will work on all systems.

One week? They promised the patch in the second half of March and it's already the fifth of April. This is not a delay of one week by my calendar.

Omg, they can't even release there patches on time, and to top it off, these are things that should have bin fixed in weeks after release of the game... :disagree:

@Kalah:



Yeah, I know. But this is the second time the patch has been delayed. Originally planned for the second half of March, there was a delay and they were planning to release it this week. Now they are telling us that they will release it next week. So, no, it's not a week's delay. And it's not even a major patch. Unless the change-log is incomplete, that's not even a week's worth of workload for a single programmer.

I am irked by the expression "polishing". IMO Ubisoft does not polish anything. The word should be "forging" or "hammering". If we are lucky then they hammer it until it resembles someting we expect it to be.

They try at least to look like respectable game publisher. "We polish games too, just like real publishers!" :D

Better a good patch that takes a bit longer to come out than a bad one that gets released too quickly. Who knows how much a bad one can wreck a computer o.o

Ok, the patch is not out yet. Yet yesterday, when I ran the game, it started patching. I don't know what the hell was that, since I already had the most recent version. However it caused a problem and now the game crashes at the end of each turn. WTF?

In the official forum I was banned because I had said that the game was boring. Well, at least I was refunded in my local store 3 months ago :)

You got what you deserved - next time think twice before disclosing their strategic secrets. :D

Right: I did not know that a boring game was a secret strategy...

I got banned from the official forum because they said my name is not serious enough and that they don't understand why I was praising Paul Romero's piano music (Paul Romero makes Heroes 6 music).



The official forum is not worth visiting anyway when we have Age of Heroes and Celestial Heavens.

Can't imagine why :D

But really - do they have a rule against not-serious-enough names? Do they have criteria? I strongly doubt they do :|
and that they don't understand why I was praising Paul Romero's piano music (Paul Romero makes Heroes 6 music).
Probably, they don't expect sincere praise anymore, but could not understand the alleged mocking in your post. So they decided to ban you, just to be on the safe side :D

Are Black Hole's weeks longer than ours? Is it that relativistic time dilation stretches duration near black holes?
