Beta Candidate #5: No Go & Swab the Decks!

22 posts in this topic

Captains, here's the record of Vote #5.

Beta Candidate #5: No Go

The Backend swarm is winding down, although there's a lot of cleanup and swabbing of the deck that remains. The testing and remediation of any compatibility issues will need to be completed before we can resume the work backlog. Currently, the Team is beginning their first pass on the Client.

The final tally was Not Applicable, due to swabbing the deck.

The outstanding work remains incomplete:

1) Gameflow QA
2) Weapons Detail UI Overhaul
3) Simple Player Combat Log
4*) Production Overhaul
5*) Range & Fuel Consumption

 #4 and #5 *may* be completed within the KS Beta itself.

The Team will hold the next vote in mid-August.

Once the compatibility testing is complete, we'll know about cross device accounts, which may be affected. The crest of the wave has passed, and we're sailing for safe harbor now!

I can only assume the August vote will be successful.  Then we shall launch on sept 1st. It's not a coincidence.  Why would you think that?

Guess we will have to wait at least another month.

Gonna be honest though it would be nice to get a bit more information on the progress since the list hasnt changed since last month and some points go back to the very first vote.

I will wait patiently but it would just be nice to know.

Armnorn;

Oh, I thought it was explained: they are replacing the backend, and it's all hands on deck for that effort. Only once that's done will the normal backlog resume.

To my understanding, The team recently completed the Back issues and now your turning thr different teams attentions back to their respective projects?

RA;

Yep! Well, they're testing the changes now, and once that's done, then they are returning to the normal backlog.

I'm a front-end development engineer, and I thought that if your back-end development is done, then the whole project would accelerate .;)

I'm kinda curious what was the nay vs yay vote this time...

There wasn't a vote, all departments were working on the issue that arose last month and it wasn't until now that they finally completed fixing the problem. Now the departments can finally work on their individual projects (the list).

*Fidget intensifies*

No no, still being patient. I'd rather have a better product later than a rushed product now. Keep up the good work.

Well good luck then. I'm looking forward to August vote.  

It would be nice to read immediately if any more complications arise. But opefully they won't.

Also just a reminder.

lazarus;

That entirely depends on the issues found, but I would *think* it will be. In any event, still room for feedback after launch, too.

Also, /popcorn.

I definitely agree with your "reminder" post there. Makes a lot more sense than the modern "We call it a beta, but it's really just an early release" thing that sometimes happens these days. Even if I won't be in on the beta :(  I'm still looking forward to it. The sooner the beta comes the sooner the actual release hits.
