As our way of saying thank you for the patience everyone has shown in us getting War of Zek out onto the servers we are implmenting the 8 hour spell research weekend!  All spells will take, at most, 8 hours to complete from Friday until Monday!

* I can dream can't I?

Sadly have to agree, won't make up for the messy mess of not testing enough!

i love how sooo many players come to the forums and wine , cry and pout about the bugs but yet the test server is so barren  lol.

well of course there is going to be lots of bugs if no one logs in and tests the stuff.

Have you even bothered checking the Test feedback forums?

Lots of people plea'd to SOE to pospone the re-itemization update! They did not listen and pushed it to live anyway!

The guild hall issue causing lots of people now not able to log into the game and play, was also reported on Test!

I was on Test and did report some items myself.  Which is why I haven't bothered to login during entire time this has been introduced.  That and prior experiences with GUs has been fairly much par for the course.

Oh well, considering that other hot thread begging for research potions I figured it'd get some interest.  Silly me.

People have had years to research the current top tier of spells and you got 5 research potions on top of it.

This I have to say NO NO NO NO NO NO too!!

I didn't mind the potions we got from the hacking, I use the RA, and I run dungeons to earn them so it took a little longer to master out, but NO NO NO NO on a weekend with them being researched every 8 hrs.

This makes me sad panda SMILEY

I'm not inclined to give my opinion in either direction, but to play devil's advocate here...how in the world would it effect your gameplay?

I played on test for years and reported everything I came across, was on the in testing forums constantly, etc. etc.

It was a waste of time. It goes live with all the bugs anyway.

Yeah, since PVP is dead and gone on this game, I wouldn't mind moving my PVE toon to a place where people actually know how to PVE...   Naggy is just filled with a bunch of scrub buckets when it comes to PVE... sure there are a couple guilds that know how, but that is a very small % of the population of players, and probably consist of 99% of the population of decent PVE'rs... and they only raid, and when they do instances, its with fellow raid geared players in their guild only...PuG's on that server are a joke...  

The question after wiping 3 times on a stupid easy instance mob:

"Dude did you not read what I told you happens when the red text flashes your name? Pay attention".....

response: "wha? we gonna do this or what?"

/facepalm

Leeeerrrrroooyyyy Jenkiiiinnnnnssss! lol

My husband and I want to try our hands at end game content with our mains but you can't find anyone willing to do ANYTHING pve on Nag...and our guild is simply not staffed well enough for even the DoV heroic content, let alone raid...just a small group of our family and friends who play when we can.

I am a software developer.

We pay people to test our software. We employ them for fourty hours a week and pay them for every hour they are in the studio. Their job is to ensure the quality of our software and any updates, patches or code changes before they go live.

Beta testing is great and all but, SOE QA should be the first line of bug and issue discovery and tracking. Relying so heavily on your own community to test your software is a dodgy practice.

Regardless, no matter which method of quality assurance you employ. Not listening to the testers or addressing the issues they find is a waste of everyones time.

If, as people in this thread have stated, they identifed and reported an issue which was severe enough to warrant immediate fixing or even delay the release of an update and you ignored it. Where is the incentive to provide this feedback in the future?
