My core game works. I had a little lagging when I logged on, but that passed.
After going through all the updates, patches and hotfixes from way back back in early-access, this is not unexpected, or going to drive me to bouts of screaming - although I may add a little something to my coffee. This is mainly because I am very familiar with software roll-outs and deployments. They are usually hell and involve much screaming and usually some tears - perhaps a paper-cut or two (or in the UK, some loud sighs and some ‘tutting’). I am just grateful that, in these globally trying times, that software is being updated.
I don’t have time to help test on TestLive, so all I can do is thank all those that are part of the testing community for all their time.
Happily, I remember back when most of the legend items, thralls, armour types, DLC’s and added map regions did not exist. Therefore, any changes, whether adds or subtractions, do not make me want to bite through my pencil or throw something at the cat. I admit did get a little tense when I spilled my coffee earlier, but I suspect no-one else out there cares about that.
Oh, and then my mods got updated! My usuallly happy little players were a little tense that servers were down pending mod updates, but they do know that’s the nature of modded servers. The players are playing now and no issues (thank you modding community).
There are channels and discord groups to report actual faults, which when used, move faults into a standard fault resolution process. If critical, it would be prioritised accordingly and eventually released.
Don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s a game. A very good game in my opinion and one that has somehow clocked up nearly 6k hours of my time - how that happened I do not know - but it has been a lot of fun and likely will continue. Thanks again to devs, support and art staff and modders of course.
