Current status of 1.3

Hey folks,

I just wanted to clear up some things and let you know that we are listening and that more information regarding Game Update 1.3 will be coming soon. We’re in internal testing on the major features right now, and we’re getting closer every day to deploying Game Update 1.3 to the Public Test Server – but we can’t guarantee there won’t still be hurdles. We’re also working on several new developer blogs about Game Update 1.3 that we know you want to hear more about (including one about character transfer details). We know that you’re looking for specific details, but we want to avoid releasing any information that is incomplete. Rest assured that we are absolutely listening and are working to bring you the information you want.

We appreciate your discussions here on the forums and we’ll try our best to step in wherever we can (and we’re always here reading, gathering your concerns, and passing them on internally), but there will be times when we really can’t say anything. As a result, you’re going to be hearing a lot of “soon” and “we’re working on it” because that’s as specific as we can get right now. When we can get more specific, we will. If we’re quiet, it doesn’t mean we’re not listening and it certainly doesn’t mean we’re not working to bring you more information – our goal is to always bring you accurate information as soon as we can.

Thanks for your patience as our developers continue to work diligently on maintaining the quality of Game Update 1.3 and releasing it to you soon.

6/13 PTS patch notes:
http://www.oldrepublic.net/529-game-upd ... -2012.html

Lots of group finder fixes. Ranked WZ fixes. Misc fixes.

Still going to need at least one more patch to PTS after this weekend's focus on ranked WZ testing and another 5+ days of group finder testing.

Hopefully see a patch by Wednesday and 1.3 could go live as early as next Tuesday.

Yeah, those fixes were done last maintenance a week ago tomorrow. I'm betting 1.3 hits tomorrow since the deadline for the titles was the 16th. Not to mention the PTS is currently down right now, if they were going to be doing more testing the servers would still be up. Hence is why I'm saying we get it tomorrow.

Don't get too excited. It is most likely down to apply patches from this weekend's ranked WZ testing. The reports that I've heard said that the event was full of bug after bug with ranked WZs and not enough 8 man team's queuing up.

Game Update 1.3 will not be deployed during the maintenance tonight. We haven't announced a date for it yet, so keep an eye on the dev tracker and the blog for updates and info!

Yeah, I noticed that after I posted. I Tried logging in to the PTS server and it was online even though the Test Center page showed the server as being offline. Though there was only like 2 people including myself on the Republic Fleet. Seems like all the Testing people went back to their Live servers.

What's the air temps over there atm?

As for me, I'm working from home waiting on a delivery. I've had most of the morning free to get online and start knocking out augment kits... bleh. Latest update is no ETA on when servers will come up. Apparently they have found issues that need to be fixed.

Well like any other new feature there will always be those people that tends to get on your nerves.

My first gripe about the LFG Tool is all the stupid people hitting decline.

First run using the LFG Tool popped instantly, FP was Taral V Hard Mode that felt like we were fighting enemies that were level 30. Happened to get a Columi Gloves token for Elara...Good Stuf.

Then after waiting a bit the queue popped five more times, each time someone hitting decline. o.0 (If your not going to run anything don't queue up, just doesn't make since to me.)

Then there are the dumb asses who just drop from group right as your pulling a boss people. So far I Love the LFG Tool, however im not sure if it's not enough healers online or what. However each time someone dropped from group and the leader requeued it would take a while to find some replacements. Another problem is if someone is MIA when the queue pops for the replacements and they don't hit a button saying their ready in 2mins. It drops you from the queue and your not able to re-queue without resetting your current phase. I'f im not mistaken this basically means restarting over again.

Yeah, I had a few queues pop where I had to wait the full 2 mins just for the tank to decline. Then a number of other cases queuing as DPS where the queues never popped.

I did finish off 2 lowbie instances with a healer and tank role. Went well enough, certainly better than what they had.

Wondering how long the DPS queues are going to be for HMs. So far I've only waited about 20 minutes.
