GloZorCoMeTh's Theory on Why 1.13 is Taking Until End Of July...

73 replies 883 views Edited Jul 5, 2012

Hey folks,

 

Well, with all the rumored (and confirmed) additions to update 1.13, my theory is that "playtesting" is playing a key role in why the 1.13 update is taking a bit longer than other updates to get to us.  I'm sure EVangM and his team of QA folks can confirm this.

 

Think about it, if any weapon tweaking is involved, the playtesting will take even longer too.  Add in the extra customization we're expecting, and you have a lot of tests that need to be run.

 

Any other ideas?

 

Anyhow...I hope Naughty Dog is being as thorough as possible so that we can all really enjoy the updates in 1.13.  The game is so near perfect, I hope we continue to get closer soon (tm).

I'd rather have ND just start giving out whatever's ready when they can though, if the ROF M9 solution comes before customization or vice versa, just split them and send out a patch.

The sooner for everything the better, but not if it's going to cause more problems like the past couple live updates (booster glitch.)

It will come, don't bother on counting the dates.

The larger the update, the greater the potential for error. They should posh single, solid updates, on one issue at a time.

My (hopeful) theory is that they decided to release the new legacies in 1.13 instead of waiting for the next patch

Someone had a theory that the Spyder skin could be a legacy reward. If so, then if they are still working on the skin it will hold the whole patch up. I dunno, just a guess.

Another pointless, lame reward, like the XX and XXX skins from UC2.

 

You want people to Legacy?  Make a Guardian or Wetsuit Elena skin the reward.

I remember ND saying they are working on 2 new legacies, but I don't remember them saying it will be in 1.13 for sure. Do you have a link?
