Last attempt, my statement is either that FC does 0 testing or inadequate testing. If somebody presented me with a thing i could observe or view or read or receive input from some other method, 1st hand, for myself, i would be willing to accept it as information.
I just have what information is available to me. I see a patch that deletes all player profiles, a patch that prevents log in, a patch that removes servers from the menu listing, a patch that makes the thralls into molemen, etc, etc, etc.
How can the first bug you encounter be one that prevents you from even logging in? Or removes your toon? That would stand out to someone who was attempting to test the patch right?
Whatever you wish to call it, or however you wish to define it. There is a problem with testing.
I can only continue with my current opinion at this juncture. 0 to inadequate testing.
If FC does test, then the problem lies with the dissimilarity(s) between testing and live environments. Which renders any testing moot, might aswell be 0 then. 0, inadequate, invalid, moot, unusable, whatever you wish as a label, the result is the same. Broken patches due to testing deficiencies, or complete lack of.
