Release for Patch 1.3

Post by i64man » Thu Apr 06, 2017 7:36 am

Good morning team,

awesome work with the LW2! I just have a question with regard to the new patch; do you have an estimated release date for the patch? I saw a YouTube video showing the Smash and Grab mission and it looks like fun.

Thanks for your answer.

Your. Question. Just. Killed. My. Rookie!!!!

We all want to know the answer to that question, but they never answer. I believe the intended schedule was about a patch a month (judging from the first two). But it's April already, no March patch.

I can already hear Tygan's laments over the comms.

This is literally just a guess, but when last noted by Xwynns where the patch was in the process, he said it was still a ways off, that was about a week ago. I would not expect it very soon, at least not until you start seeing crowdsourced translation requests from the devs and all.

Whenever a rookie fucks up, I ask this several times, to punish all rookies for being idiots.
When will 1.3 get released?

As Johnny himself said: a good sign of a patch being near (near as in about 1-2 weeks away) is a call for fan translations by pavonis. This Call hasn't occured yet, so my guess: at the very least 3 weeks, probably more.

Also, they're still adding balance changes. There are two additional Gameplay changes this week. Once they stop adding new ones (and perhaps reveal what they are testing), that's a good sign that the patch will be out soon.

Ok, we need a new thread. The topic will be "When?" and the post will be also "When?" And all replies in this post should be "When?".

There we will be like a cursed lunatics, damned fools, zombies, whatever and ask only one question, but never get the answer. But still we will be going again and again without stopping: "When? When? When?.."

And from that time no more these posts. If you want to ask for a date, you just go and join the brainless zombie army, open that post and type "When?" in the reply.

Could we at least get a sneak peak and learn about some balance changes? Even if they are subject to modification.

If asking when the next version comes out kills a rookie, does asking if I should start a new campaign wound them? :D

There IS a sticky topic here with all the finalized changes.

"If only there was something we could have done... some aspect of our research that could be improved..."

I might be paraphrasing XCOM:EW Vahlen rather than Tygan, but w/e. Ded rookies. :(

They're still adding changes (you can see on the 1.3 changes sticky). Last time I made this comment (3 weeks ago) they were at 16 changes. This week it went up to 26 changes. I would imagine there's still more testing to do, so I wouldn't expect it for at least another week or so.

I wish you guys would stop killing my rookies, I am having a hard enough time keeping them alive in 1.3 as it is.

My rookies use "hunker down" when i ask for a release date. Perhaps your rookies should try it, too :)

I tried that. Mutons threw grenades, they're dead anyway.

The translation post was also called "batch 1" which implies at least a "batch 2" still to come - probably for those latest changes.

We're losing rookies left and right, Commander! We need to get these people out of here!
