edited January 2015 in General Discussion
Seeing as how we have officially launched, I wanted to make a thread to let you all know of the issues we are aware of and fixing.

1. The Illusionary Pill: The plan was for this to launch at 12 Noon today, so you could all get your free level 95. An issue arose last minute, and the item on live servers, does not work in the intended way. We're pushing out a small patch tonight, to fix the issue. Because of this, the pill will be delayed a tiny bit. I'll post back with any updates once we get them from China.

2. Dawn of The Eclipse Raffle: http://www.arcgames.com/en/games/pwi/news/detail/9011023-dawn-of-eclipse-raffle! - In relation to the pill issue, this also had to be delayed for the same reasons. The new date is reflected on the blog, 12/24/14 - 1/23/15

3. NW Forge - This was not intended and will be changed. I'll keep you updated with how and when.

4. Hypers in FC - Again, not an intended change and we've made the developers aware.

New Updates

- We had an issue with the send out, but we're getting that fixed right now. I'll announce before it goes out, in here and Facebook/In-game so it doesn't catch anyone by surprise. Also, I'm preparing a simple blog, that will have an Arc redeemable code with the Illusionary Crystal, in case the second attempt does not work.

Time Conversion: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20141219T12&p1=224

In the off-chance that anything fails to go through, please check back with this thread and our Facebook for any updates. Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/PerfectWorldMMO

- There are no plans currently, for a rollback.



If you come across anything else, please let me know in this thread so I can make the right people aware, and get a fix out asap.

    Should we expect a roll-back or just patching?

    Out of all this they will likely 'fix' the hyper issues FIRST, because that is the only thing we don't want or need fixed.

    The pills will likely go out without anyone realizing and they will be all sent to the wrong characters and PWI won't care.

    Gotta love this development company (not)

    LOL!!! EPIC FAILURE!!!

    So items 1 through 4 are basically waiting on China for a fix??? Well, we all have PLENTY of experience of just prompt China developers are at responding to PWE issues.

    On a side note, I like to be the first to congrats to new classes lv100s FC.


    [EDIT NOTE:]

    This is not a dig at sparkie, I know he is just a messenger. This is yet another example of the disconnect between PWE and PWI. Someone just is not doing their homework.

    So what we can do now? I can log my main char today without a problem and tomorrow log my alt for level up to 95 or do i have to wait until tomorrow for no getting troubles with the Pill?

    Btw, you could leave FC as is. At least on RT it kept ppl motivated to learn their class at least to some point and it had slightly vitalizing effect. b:surrender

    Even FC-nabs were better at their class than current PV-noobs 'cause FC had boss killing, pulls that needed proper skill-usage, trickster bosses(needed purifying, moving out of danger, properly timing skills...) etc etc. PV ish mostly mindless grinding and most BHs are just 95% solo'd by some bored lvl 100 so lowbies can't learn basics from them anymore.

    Best thing to do is just hang around and talk with friends. Due to FC happening again they might force a rollback so doing any leveling or whatnot may be worthless to do. Just sit back and chill until the patch.

    You should be able to just play normally, since the item won't actually go out until the patch hits. In the off-chance it does go out, the way it's broken still won't allow it to work. (The item shows up but as soon as you take it out of the mailbox, it disappears and does nothing)

    If I had a dime for every time you guys released a buggy patch with broken content, I'd be quite rich. How does this stuff get passed by during the QC? This is pretty basic stuff. The inta-95 pill was being hyped like crazy, but doesn't work? The raffle for the same reason. Probably the biggest driving force in the economy - NW and farming it, has been altered dramatically, and this passed your QC? The biggest issue since packs being implemented in 2009 - hypers in FF... This passed your QC?

    QC = what? Not quality control, clearly. Next thing we know, the game will stop functioning completely, and that passed the QC. Good stuff.

    Let's wait on the Chinese overlords to tell us this was all intentional and that we should live with it. OR it wasn't intentional and will be reverted in the next large patch 6-7 months from now.

    This expansion actually seems a lot smoother than previous ones...all games have some sort of bugs when releasing new expansions, content updates, and even some small patches...this is personally my favorite expansion since Age of Spirits....things are running a lot smoother right now than they used to in previous expansions when they were first released...

    Guys, sometimes things go screwy between QC and actual launch. I've beta'd other games before, and they work just fine until suddenly there's a few thousand more people than there were previously.

    Quit being entitled and whiny just because it something with a lot of coding doesn't work 100% perfectly from the get-go.

    Also, how about, instead of demanding a rollback because of a few things gone wrong, you be patient for once?
