The Grineer Systems Transmission And U13 Hype Megathread


Recommended Posts

I was never really hyped about this update myself, though I am waiting patiently for it.

Even if they miss the PDT deadline (in about 2 1/2 hours), I am willing to give a 6-hour grace period for the update to pop. Not sure about others, but at the very least there are some with faith in the patch coming on time.

 

Let's just hope they get their proper sleep once it pops, regardless of glitches for at least 10 hours post-patch. They deserve sleep at least.

I wonder if were just waiting for the update to compile, then maybe they could get some drinks and nutrition to survive the car ride home safely...

You aren't the only one, many people moved their busy lives/schedules around to be able to play just an hour or two of the new update. I can't afford to stay up till 3am waiting for it to be delayed again, and I won't have time to play for at least a couple of days. Very frustrating. Making deadlines public hasn't helped DE's case. Especially with a week long delay followed by another missed deadline, you can only expect some kind of outcry from the public. Not to sound like every other child out there, but: People get hyped for release -> Delayed a week -> Huge amount of hype/tension grows waiting for the day to come -> Patch day is here, people wait all day -> Find out AFTER deadline is missed again that they have delayed the patch again -> Anger ensues. Like I said, I have real life engagements to attend to, and alas, no matter if the delay is 3 hours or 3 days, I won't get to see it for some time.

While there does need to be a bit of calming of the jimmies here, I do have to partially agree with some others here.  If the patch was still being worked on yesterday, they should of said flat out it wasn't ready.  The issue isn't so much 'we don't have patience' it's the fact that they hype us up with comments and vids and the likes (Which is normally awesome), then don't tell us it's a no go until the absolute last second, which means a whole lot of people wasted a whole lot of time, and that does make people cranky.

 

Not just that, throughout the week they have said the update was going to come next week. Delaying it now would be outright lieing to the community and that is a horrible thing in the buiseness world. 

 

This is a shoot or be shot moment for the DE, if they don't shoot soon they will be shot multiple times by fanbase.

I don't think you guys understand...

 

The DE promised there fans a update before the day was over in canada which is in 3 hours, if they don't do this it will hurt the game drastically and destroy most of the trust that the community has for the DE. This is not a little deal this is a huge deal! They can't blow this or they will lose fans and loose money.

They lost fans when they delayed it last week and lost money to! Doing it again but outright lieing to the community would be just outright horrible and scar this game for life!

 

Drama. . . king/queen?

If a late patch is enough to make you lose your trust in a company then I'm glad I have stronger foundations than you.

On release day...if they thought it was not going to be ready... They SHOULD say something. I am hyped, but I could have just went to bed after I studied, instead of you know, waiting.

 

It'd be good if they'd be more transparent about it. Another three hour window isn't "almost done". Just be open about the scope of Melee 2.0. If it really requires more weeks to finish, if that, or even more days, just be open about it.

yes. yes C# is horrible

but i had to start somewhere(i'm lucky they didnt make us do binary!)

i have done some coding in C++ and we've read about Java. but Java is next semester and for C++ we are still working on that now (my respect to whoever had to code this stuff originally without guide books!)

this semester is mostly network security, packet sniffing(its not what it sounds likes), and SAP(buisness end)

That's cute kiddo. Have fun with student loan debt. I recommend making less assumptions about people you don't know at your first job interview. My get you the job if you learn a little caution for the next time you make an incorrect assumption about someone. ;) Edited by Kaerakh

The thing that I just don't get is that the industry and indeed the world lives and dies by meeting deadlines. We are told our whole lives going through school that having "late" work is unacceptable and will not be tolerated when you get out into "the real world." The truth is that DE can just decide not to, I guess. It upsets me. Granted, I can't do anything but wait, so that's what I'll do.

 

I mean, I play Guild Wars 2, and ArenaNET doesn't miss an update ever, and they release content roughly every 2 weeks.

Usually I don't bash on the Devs, but this is just unacceptable by any means. Missing their first deadline on April 2nd was understandable, people make mistakes. But this deliberate delay of release that was suppose to happen yesterday is not only disappointing, but frustrating. I have no right to comment in regard to Devs' professionalism, but I just don't see how anyone can live with last minute resort (April 2nd BS countdown/ Last minute compensation Build Prepare Endure), and now missing a second deadline. The Devs can get away with April 2nd, but this is really getting out of hand.

If we continue to allow this sort of behavior to continue. We can soon expect this sort of behavior in every up-coming update. Sure, this is nowhere close to Vindictus/Nexon behavior, but enthusiasm dies in both directions, both Devs and Playerbase.

Go tell that to the devs yourself. Because im SURE you know what exactly what the hell they're doing to delay it. *sarcasm* Dont judge unless you know both sides of the story.

I think you are severely exaggerating here. New players will have never heard of it, old players will forget about it in a month. Get real xD

 

The hype lives on!

how is it lying if they honestly thought it would be ready on time then discovered stuff that needed fixing? i would bet 50 bucks you would be one of the 1st to start complaining if something important didnt work like it was supposed to right from the get go in other words? lay off buddy

thats my only gripe really, I wouldnt care about even a full day delay; so long as the time I was told was correct and plan accordingly XD
