some mistakes about patching and live and beta servers

Recommended Posts

Game has improved a lot, no doubt about that. Better game leads to a improved population on the game. We was seeing more ppl playing Live servers, more new players asking things and etc.

But the dregs ends and what ArtCraft did? Abandoned the live server and made a test patch. There is nothing to do at live, so every non newbie went to test, but there is nothing to do there either, so ppl just stay fighting at EK´s.

So now we have an empty live and beta servers and the game will probably loose a good ammount of those new players that started playing at live but sudenly it was empty and there was nothing to do there.

This is so wrong.

Test server should be there to test some experimental things, some particular things, it should not be the main server.

Dregs at live ended and you need to test something at test server? ok. Patch the test server but do something in the live so the game dont die. Let infected running, or even better: start a faction campaing, let newbies find players there, interacting with them there, joining guilds and etc, just dont abandon them.

And after all, i saw no big siege at test so the test itself is meanless. Everything you tested on test could be tested at live.

Dont kill your already low player base.

ACE tries to make sure everyone knows what's going on, but the problem is many people don't read anything. They just jump into the game and start playing.

It isn't perfect, but that's where the community needs to step up and let new players know what's going on. The only other option is to get rid of the test server and just patch everything directly to live, but that creates it's own set of problems, for new and old players alike. 

Once we get into beta, there will be a lot more players, and the test/live logistics won't matter.

How ? I was one of those who jumped in and didn't read . Would love to be part of test server.

The in-game UI dashboard would be a good place to provide news to players about what they should be testing or where to play, etc. but I don't think they have the timeframe or resources to do all that nice to have stuff.
