Ive never seen it as being anything other than an advantage having someone beta test for us, and work out our walk-throughs :clap:

Glad I moved to Excal from Merlin 2 years ago :)

i prefer it this way tbh and dont understand why u all whine so much

we get the fixed game rather than endless patches every time we log on for a new found bug.

I am bit worried Mythic will mirror the patches exactly like how the US players got them and leave us with broken game for many months.

I would usually expect companies to fix something they said was broken for people when they had chance but unfortunately I often see mythic pick the lazy route so I am very worried.

Might have to be there for the initial big ML raids but after half-decent master level I would probably not play while game was so severely broken as it has been on US server for way too long.

i wouldnt worry, GOA will most likely (as they have done on many occasions) lump together a whole series of patches/fixed in one mofo patch - that wel prolly get on TOA day anyway,

I don't mind being patched later, blah, blah. I agree with Chronic, we get less headache this way. Besides, Americans deserve more agony.

I'd agree but fact is even though we are months behind the US in patches, we still go through the same problem because GOA don't learn. If there was REAL communication between the US and EU teams we wouldn't have had so many problems on patch days. I know each machine is different etc but theres really no excuse.

so funny that so many people know everything about how goa works. People sometimes really seem to think goa makes the problems themselfs just to annoy us :touch: . Don't you think they want to have as less problems as possible, just like we want?

I very much doubt we'll see daily patches for a month after we get ToA here in europe...

Which "problems on patch days" are you talking about?

I agree totally, being behind in patches is all good. Let the yanks betatest for us.

I think the funniest thing is that half those people complaining about the ToA nerf are actually the same people who were complaining about 0.01sec cast times and all that other crap.

Poor babies, i almost want to fly over to america and bash them all with my patented rod-of-anti-hypocracy :rolleyes:

... until someone in Europe encounters a bugged ML trial mob. What the hell do we do then? No /appeal so what, log off, send a mail to rightnow and then what? We're not going to get "read file" fixes every time that happens surely? I'm guessing it will be a wait til next patch, go do something else in the meantime approach. :twak:

They just added patch notes to 1.66 and 1.67 in the rightnow FAQ.
Seems we will get to 1.67 very fast with Atlantis and then its unknown if they will push to get 1.68 earlier or leave us rotting for few months.

Well we're getting ToA w/ 1.67 (as oppose to the yanks who got 1.66 and then spent all that time beta-testing it for us :D) so i'd imagine it wouldn't take more than a month or so 'till we get .68

Still, i don't know a huge ammount about how/what GoA do to it (or about game coding in general :D) so who knows, but in any case come the 25th the Euro servers will only be 1, yeah One patch behind the Americans, thats pretty cool if you ask me.

I play on the US servers at the moment, tho i'm waiting to move over here when i find a copy of the bloody game... ToA over there is crazy, it took them over 4 months to review and tone down the items there. The patch has just recently been put in, 1.68. Perhaps the most obvious thing about ToA is the battler artifact. I play a druid, and RvR a fair amount. There is a rarther good berzerker who when in vendo mode hits me for above 800 every time, her highest being 1158 :eek7: and also swinging every 2.5 seconds or so.

Also most of my guild have had to re-spellcraft twice since ToA, which is crazy considering the ammount of money involved in that.

In europe we pay to play the game.

In america, they pay to beta-test the game.

Nice to see a new player coming (Play Excal, we're cooler than those Pyr n00bs :p) - though i should ask, seeing as TOA is released in Europe this week (v1.67) how is it going to be any different? If anything it means your only going to be faced with your problems for longer because of the lag between patches.

Mythic changes the way items detoriate for necros in one of the post ToA patches. Necros complain that the pace is too fast, and from what been posted on VN it seems like Mythic managed to do some errors in that code. If you want to get your SI quest items reduced to 1 dur in a week or so, put them on a necro :)

The purpose of the change was to make the necros items detoriate at same speed as the bonedancer. But Mythic became a bit too enthusiastic when coding it :)
