So within mere hours before the deployment of 5.2 patch in SWTOR, we were told via twitter and then on the forums that 5.2 The War for Iokath would be delayed, and it caused a huge uprising in rage within the community. Most of the rage I had seen was on the forums and so forth. I saw very little rage on twitter, but still none the less it qued up all the rage. It also makes me kind of disappointed as well, all because over the last week I spent a lot of time researching information about developers and coding in our games, that well to be perfectly honest I am glad they have decided to delay the patch release instead of releasing and it breaking even more things in the game then what is already broken. So like I said it qued all the rage in the forums. After all the research I did last week on game development, the developers of indie games I play, and coding that it all goes into a game and to make the game engine run semi-smoothly. I still don’t get the idea of all the rage because something gets delayed. To be honest I’m happy they decided to delay this patch instead of just releasing it out live and giving us a ton of issues with it.
In my opinion I would rather a developer delay a game patch then release it out into the public and cause even more rage from the patches being broken. I’m even sure the developers themselves were disappointed when they found out they couldn’t release this patch out in time, but instead of releasing it, they went on Twitter, and the forums and let us know that it would be delayed another week. I mean that’s 7 days from now. It’s not a huge game breaker, but I understand from reading the forums that some took the time off from work, and now they don’t know what to do because this will not be out for them to play on the initial release date. Call me whatever name you will because I fully back SWTOR’s development team for not releasing patch 5.2 The War for Iokath. I’d rather have to wait a week, go offline for the time period they need to run whatever they need to let patch 5.2 come out. So yeah, I congratulate the SWTOR Developers for pulling this patch back, and holding off for a week before releasing it to us. I don’t care what the nay-sayers say, I think they did the right thing for this patch. I wouldn’t want to play something that is extremely broken, semi-broken is the normal for this game, but still it’s worth it.
