If the title isn’t clear enough. Whenever a new patch comes out it causes issues for Guild Wars. Almost every single time!
The issues happen for those who have updated already or haven’t updated yet… There’s no rhyme or reason to it.
Since you don’t have the type of QA that can be 99% sure there won’t be bugs that are caused by an update.
Please do the easiest and simplest solution. Don’t push out a patch… Or don’t force your developer to… During a guild wars week. Which means you can still push out an update to Gems of War 39 weeks a year! The dissatisfaction that these bugs cause effect at least 50% of your player base. Because…even if the bug doesn’t effect the player directly. It certainly effects at least 1 of the members in their guild. Resulting in possibly less rewards in this guild wars and the next. Not to mention the time the support staff will have to spend trying to figure out the issue and remedying it.
I assume the rush to push out patches is motivated by financial reasons that I’m not privy to. Currently your decision to push out the update this week looks greedy. That and you don’t care if bugs or crashes happen during guild wars. Instead of 505 Games being the one down side to my Gems of War experience. Let’s try to work better together (as in publisher and all players) so that everyone can have a happy experience playing the game. But even more importantly, so that GoW remains profitable enough to keep the game around. (The decision to push the patch this week hurt all parties involved.)
PS… Ask your developer… I’m not “Monday quarterbacking” the issues experienced the past 24 hours. I (and many others) have always vehemently warned against updates during GW.
