    And I can see that, and I apologize if my post came off as defensive or harsh, wasn't the intention, but the debate between "open beta" and "release" at this point is semantics. I view it from the angle of a customer and a tester. Bit of both, because I've spent some money on and bought into this game. I enjoy it. I admit that their angle and approach seems to be more towards the customer rather then focused on progressive testing and bug-squashing, and it might not be the most productive method of getting a finished product any time soon, but at this point it is what it is. I just don't believe that they're doing (or any other developer) for malicious reasons or with an agenda in mind beyond putting out a game, and making money. It's what they do.

    And while I'm not going to judge on who you do or don't like, to be fair, Vlad's original post was in response to a forum troll that's been regurgitating the same nonsense all over the forums and I believe He was pretty spot on. Nothing wrong with calling the developer out if you're unhappy, but spouting rhetoric, conspiracy theories, and repeatedly bashing them senselessly with the arguments of an uneducated and overly-opinionated 12 year old without thinking about what you're saying first is not really the way to go about it.

    In any case, I believe there's alot that they could change or do/have done differently. For Me, I'm pretty happy with the game as-is.

    On Topic: WTB Patch Notes already.

    Why is everyone hoping for new classes? Sure I hope I'm wrong but I'm guessing it will be three or four lines regarding AH and Gateway

    I have spent the last several days looking around the inet, and passing along what I see, and NO ONE from PWI or Cryptic cares to comment on any of my posts and questions. Why is that?

    I have a few good ideas, but one of them is, they DON'T have an answer!

    I also have a question: Who in hell do you think you are with that self entitling attitude? They don't answer to you so why do you think they should reply to you and not to everyone else individually??

    Move along please, your type are the "cancers" of mmo's..

    It's a few pages back, but on the neverwinter twitter feed with the announcement of tonights maintenance, they also tweeted a pic that appears to have what we (think) are new classes oni t.

    The talk about new classes has to do with the fact that they purposefully added a screenshot on their Twitter feed when they announced that there was a patch scheduled for today. Could it just be coincidence that they added a screenshot with what appears to be a ranger in it? Sure.

    But it certainly is fun speculating.

    Also they are quite overdue for the patch notes which they usually have posted before midnight pacific time the day before a patch. ;)

    I've seen the pic and read the thread, I do think you guys are reading to much into it though. I think it would be way more hyped if new classes was about to be released. To draw in more players. I doubt they will ever release classes or content without banging on the big drum to let the crowd know about it.

    I hope they fix the glitch in epic cragmire crypts where the mage boss can have his intro animation set off multiple times by having people walk up and down the stairs.

    Maintenance probably fixes known map/boss exploits, that's why they wont post the notes till the last minute.

    Patch notes:

    Fixed issue with cat cape clipping through bodies, all other capes still continue to do so.

    That is all thanks for your patience!

    --- In all seriousness I really hope we get some interesting patch notes, but not going to get my hopes up I expect exploit fixes.

    I am interested to see where that screenshot goes.
    The quiver is definitely a sign of ranger I would think.

    As for the caster... the runes on the mob are the exact same as the interior of the DC's Astral Seal. But it does not have the outer ring that Astral Seal has. Now it could be possible that they took the screenshot the nano-second before the outer ring materialized. But in Live they do seem to materialize together. However it could be faster than the naked eye can detect.

    So, I will go with a Two-weapon Ranger and Devoted Cleric (for the sake of uncertainty) as a guess. Although I would be happier than a pig in (bleep) if it were a warlock.

    Also they are later than usual posting the Patch Notes. hmmmm :confused:

    Finally a friggin' proper dual wielding Ranger. My heart just went BADONKA DONKA DONK.

    To those whose saying it's a Cleric in the background in that picture, it's not. The mark on the mob does not match up with Astral Seal or any other abilities we have.

    The thingy on his back looks like a holder for weapons actaully. Or Something that holds daggers.

    But hell I dunno. I hope they don't have an archer in this game because personally I think archers suck.

    Long ranged high dps with stuns/silence/aoes? It would be a QQ fest surpassing the already QQ on TR's.

    P.s I hate archers.

    We plan to bring back the Auction House after extensive testing and verification.

    This is what I'm hoping for *fingerscrossed*

    They need to fix the exploits, ban the exploiters/cheaters, then get rid of the pay2win zen to ad system (and I don't mean get rid of it, just look at how much 40 bucks worth of zen can get you though, over 15mil atm). Only then, after the economy is stable should they release the ah. I really hope to see this happen asap, hopefully this weekend, but I doubt it.

    Not true at all. $1 = 100 Zen. 1 Zen goes for about 375 AD at the moment. Meaning 40$ gives you about 1.5m AD, not 15m AD.

    HAHAHAH even when they say there will be patch notes they still wont let us in on what they are until its patched... Greatest communication ever

    AFAIK, maintenance doesn't start for another 24 minutes (and quite a bit longer since the post I'm quoting).. don't they usually wait until after the servers come down before posting the patch notes?

    A lot of the times the things they fix are exploits and bugs that can be exploited. So they don't post what they fix until the server is down (Instead of just bringing down the servers at random times).

    Oh, thanks! Beat me to it. Too bad so many people missed this.

    Personally, I really think too much is being read into this image.
    - Why would a dual-weilding ranger have a quiver?
    - Why would they release another dual-wielding class when there's so much clamoring for an archer?*
    - The guy behind the golem looks like a Guardian Fighter to me. He has a shield, we have a shield wielding class, there's no need to invent another class to explain him.
    - I'm betting the third character is either a cleric or a wizard, and the oddities surrounding the power gfx are due to timing of the screenshot or other settings, and are not likely new powers or classes.
    - Keep in mind, up to 2 more characters could be out of frame casting powers too.

    *I know there's a debate as to whether the Ranger will be an Archer or Dual Weilding. I heard where the dual-weilding rumor came from. My money's on Archer. Also, Warlock will be released before the Ranger, whatever it is.

    I could be wrong on all of this, but given the evidence and my experience, I'm making my best guess.

    I don't think the servers are quite down yet. Are you able to log in to the launcher? If not, do you get an error? If you can log into the launcher, but not the game, do you get an error or does it just crash?
