Howdy folks. I don't play on Test (I don't do these things because of personal opinions), but I respect the work y'all do.I'm kinda curious about the test centre process. I'm guessing it's not fully in place yet (ie: the bad patch today), but from what I understand happens is the following:1) Patch is tested internally.2) Patch is pushed to Test Centre and tested on there.3) Back and forth happen between devs and players, ironing out bugs and whatnot.4) Patch is pushed to live.Is that correct? Did I miss something?

<DIV>cut out step 3 and you have the process more or less. sure devs ask for input and players give, but i can be willing to bet that when this patch is pushed to live the same game stopping bugs will still be there</DIV>

<DIV>heh hope you were being sarcastic.... this test server is hardly state of the art... hell its not even up to date with the live servers... at least in UO Test Center they buff characters and give items to make sure that every aspect is tested before a publish goes live...</DIV>
