We already had stress test, full set 3 card list and even little test play time with set 3, any ideas when we might see release for set 3? For all optimists out there who still hopes that set 3 will be released this month - there is still hope, 30th is on tuesday :D

"Before Gencon, 100%"

EDIT: Since this seems to have been an insufficient reference, this was stated by Cory Jones in an interview with streamer Cirouss in an Interview at RPC 2015 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMoX6O9nopw). The audio quality is poor but the statement is there.

I think the best thing they can do is to coincide with gen con as it would be an awesome release week for hex, but just a guess

Earliest would be July 14. We got 4th of July and quite a lot of bugs still with set 3 cards and new bugs on old cards.

They can't really risk releasing it to coincide with gencon due to the event of giving away Gen Con packs in game. Too many bugs would really put a damper on the event and being that they will be at GenCon not exactly sure the game would be able to be quick patched if needed

Yeah unfortunately the test server revealed just how many bugs there are still with set 3. (I had a blast on the test server, and would happily continue testing if they want to open it up again!)
Hopefully the card interaction bugs will be squished quickly. I'd love to see a pre gen con release, but guess it makes sense if they do it then. Having said that, it might make sense to have it all ready and released and any issues patched before some of the team are out at gen con.

I tend to favor later dates in the pre-Gencon range, but I actually do kinda agree with Poizonous in that I'd think they'd take at least a week before Gencon to make sure any to game-breaking bugs get hammered out on Live.

I'll keep hope alive every Tuesday (for an announcement re: the following Tuesday), but rationally...

June 30th - Would seem a nope, given bug squashing still to do.
July 7th - Holiday weekend would make this seem a longshot...
July 14th - That would be perfect if able to release in July.
July 21st - Pretty unlikely given leading in to a constructed VIP weekend (over-powered bug risk).
July 28th - Nope, since staff needed at Gencon + Convocation disruption risk.
August 4th - Probably too soon after Gencon + Convocation disruption risk.
August 11th - Perfect fit.
August 18th - Perfect fit.
August 25th onwards - Let's not get too skeptical!

I'm still trying to aim my summer holiday for release (aware of bugs, downtime etc. - just need a holiday from work!), but at least I have Convocation week as plan B. :)

There was confirmation that it would be before gen con though yeah? Surely that puts August out of the question.

set release in july seems optimistic, but i dont know if the testserver was at the current state of the game, if so i dont think we make it until end of july, if this was an "older" version of the current client, they maybe make it.

but i guess it was the current state of the client :(

Just because of the sheer amount of card interaction bugs?
I have no real knowledge of the programming. Is it that some interactions are hard to work out/debug? Or is that they just needed lots of people playing to find the bugs -- now they are found they will be easy to resolve. I really hope it's the latter. Also, now isn't the time for this, but I'd love to see an in-depth dev post about card interaction programming and how it works for hex.

Well, Cory Jones said "Before Gencon 100%" in his interview with Cirouss, that's July. May be a few August bugs to contend with.

July 14th is definitely safest bet

It's the creepiest when you visit that page and it says "Viewing who's online" after someone's name. It's like looking out of a window through binoculars and coming across another person doing the same :D

2 and a half weeks of notice for the gold AA cards, pretty sweet. And a bit of time to get things in order before set 3 madness begins.

Kinda sad it didn't make it to June, but I'm really excited for the possibility of chests and all the other non-3 stuff that might make it into this patch.

06-26-2015, 10:46 AM
Argh, but Set 3 release, then right after GenCon... I can't take off work for all of it! Especially since I'm already off all next week. And then letting my girlfriend know I'm busy for most of July/early August...
