Funcom employee Monthly Development Update – 31st of December, 2013

Hello everyone!

This will be a rather quick update, as this month has for the most part been vacation for the dev team. (Even the wicked need some rest once in a while )

So, in the beginning of December, we were extremely busy trying to get a patch to the beta servers before we went on vacation. We managed to succeed with this goal and got a lot of bugs fixed. We also shipped the Christmas content to the live servers.

After a couple of vacation weeks, we are back in the office and have started to go through all the feedback that has been provided from the players who are in the closed beta. There are still a lot of bugs for us to fix and we will start working towards a new bug fix patch for the beta server.

We have also started to investigate the possibility of adding some new content in the 18.6 branch so you have something new to do while wait for the 18.7 patch to reach the live dimension. I will get back to you with more information when I can make some actual promises.

Aside from that, there really isn't much to tell, unless you want to hear detailed information about my horses... (wait... I don't have any horses... )


Happy new year everyone!

I see your beta and I raise you a profession rebalance, PvP fix (get rid of 40% cap) and an economy fix as well. Might as well go all in.

I agree also with that, AO has been Neglected for too long. 1 Thing at a time i guess.. a long wait for us players.

Anyways, havent actually expected a Dev update in December, so nothing gained, nothing lost.

Happy new year to all devs and may you learn how set timeframes work in RL

Ahhh it's a ghost! Kill it!

;D

I miss the the old Friday with Means threads, I don't suppose I could bribe you to start doing them again?

Just start making stuff up, you could be like "Were adding Leets as a possible new weather effect and we have decided everything in the new engine should be orange." It will be totally awesome.

Happy New Year
I'm Sure the new engine will get people back in the game - You must believe!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Trust in the force.... - sry wrong channel

It would be nice once the engine on live to maybe start thinking about a new expansion to the game - maybe another area - I have an idea for one. If you want to here about it i'm in Aospeak most evenings GMT time. - oh I forgot you guys don't go in there much

anyway HAPPY NEW YEAR again and lets hope its a good one

To many Alts list.....
