My problem with it is, they have done this before, then when we called them out on it, CCP says, 'oh, well we always say what are patches are'...yet, here we are yet again...no notes. Regardless if it is just "back end stuffs"...CCP vowed to improve their communication...this is yet another example of them failing to communicate

They added spyware to keep tabs on you and your illicit activities.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

They were obviously updating their super sekrit WOW disabler. They can't very well advertise that, now can they?

Seriously, if you're expecting them to detail out every tiny change and tweak they make, you're reaching. I mean we're getting patch notes ahead of major releases now instead of three days afterwards. I'd say we can cut them a little slack.

It's probably the Circadian stuff, or that star. Advertising it would kinda defeat the point :)

How hard would it be for the person in charge of "okay"ing a patch just to say "dust stuffs" or "back end stuffs"....they've done it before. (quite a few times actually)

Also, umm, with putting the patchnotes out for the major patches ahead of time...yeah, now they are including stuff that got scrapped or delayed, so its not as great as you think. Their previous excuse for not having the patchnotes ready for the day of the patch was that "we don't know what all was in it"....which is kind of a cop-out lame excuse.

But again, every team should be submitting some form brief description of what their contribution was...that way the person/or group that is giving the green light for said patch knows what they are saying "okay" to. Does that make sense?

Well, your post didn't indicate anything other than "I can't find it. WAAH!"

And that still doesn't change the fact that you're acting like an entitled mongloid. Give them a few hours to type them up.

Nice back pedalling, I'm not the OP. And your "give them a few hours" is nothing more than "oh crap, I messed that up because I thought they were actually listed. I better be passive aggressive about it and try to save face".

I can promise you that they know internally exactly what's in every patch - that's what version control and defect tracking software is for, after all.

Here's a for instance - I can go look at any of our servers, pull the revision number of the code from it, go look up that revision in Subversion and see what files were changed, who changed them, and pull a diff on the previous version to see exactly what lines of code got changed. I can then link that back to the Defect tracking database and see exactly why it was changed.

Just because they didn't tell you what was changed, don't make the mistake of thinking that the people approving a patch don't know what's in it.

The patch was cloaked.

This is not a signature.

This.

I just don't know. Some people think they deserve to get their @$$ kissed with regularity, but have a hard time themselves when it comes time to pucker up. This is a problem as old as the hills. We used to just club 'em and
go on about our business. Maybe it's the price for civilization - enduring the entitled a-holes.

Makes one yearn for the good ol' days.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

Umm, so where is my time machine to make today "Thursday January 22"...? Please increase your reading comprehension to 5th grade level atleast...

Hello! You appear to be new here.

Im Unsuccessful at Everything, the forum RA. If you have any questions or would like a tour, let me know. My room is the first one on the left down the east hallway. If there is a tie on the doorknob, don't worry, its not a signal or anything, I just do that sometimes.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

There are no patch notes there for a release today and none were put together internally as today was just a little bit of maintenance work.
