Hello everyone,

I am sorry for bringing you the news so close to the announced launch date but we are going to have to postpone. There are a few bugs that we still want to address including a fairly big memory leak that does not allow us to launch on July 14th. We will be launching Armies of Myth as soon as we can after the bug is fixed so I can't give you an exact day or time yet. If we have a perfect day today then that could be as soon as tomorrow but I consider that rather unlikely. The better bet is that we will be ready next week. Thanks for your patience and we will update when we have new confirmed information.

-Chris Lena

Better to take the time to fix a major bug like that, which would affect lots of users, then have a bad launch experience. Here's hoping you guys can get it worked out quickly! I'm sure we'll be enjoying those horrible, terrifying spiderlings in no time. :)

Based on what we heard in the charity stream, they discovered the memory leak kind of last minute. It's likely that everything was in fairly good shape but the leak is just something that has to be fixed.

As an aside, what does this mean for the release weekend? If it is postponed, will it land alongside VIP or during Gencon? Just curious if this is going to be an issue or not. :)

If this delay happens to go until next week - which is perfectly okay - Could you guys do an extended Release Celebration?

Some folks planned their time accordingly, and now the Release Celeb may conflict with the VIP tournaments. Would be nice to have a little extra time so us whales can grind out our candy.

<3 you all and know this is for the best. My computer has already leaked enough memory that I've installed a urinal underneath.

It will be a very sad release weekend for me :/ gl getting it fixed ASAP

Ah, shoot, I'm going to be on vacation next week (if that's when the launch will be). I've always made fun of people who plan their schedules around TCG's and then whine about it when dates change, but in this one instance, I purposely scheduled my trip to be after release week. Frackin' karma...I deserve it.

A single bug can be hard to find but easy to squish...i gues thats the case here...(it could also be hard to find and hard to squish)

It's quite crushing news of course. Right after the stream marathon the hype facto was pushed to max so the dissapointment factor is also max.

Unfortunate but totally understandable. Take the time you need to get everything ironed out.

I like the idea of an extended release celebration as well. If the celebration weekend gets pushed back a week I'm going to have a hard time participating. (Pretty sure my girlfriend doesn't want me playing Hex all day on her birthday. ;))

Question, is the arena gold bonus going to extend until the patch does hit, since it says until the servers come down for Armies of Myth?

I could definitely use more time farming arena and hunting Uruunaz.

It's a tough one. I know that when people requested it be moved to a different weekend to accommodate players wanting to take part in the release celebration, they said that they really didn't want to postpone because it sets a bad precedent, and could lead to two events having to be held on back to back weekends.

My gut says that Ruby cup will happen, set 3 or not, but I would be interested to see how Fiveshards reacts.

What if set 3 gets delayed?

Then the tournament format will be set 1 + set 2 constructed. The prizes will also be in set 1/set 2 packs.

Yes, as per the write up, if the set is not out this week, it is sans set 3. I have talked to Tecnophi and the prizes will still be in set 3 boosters, it will just take us a few days to give you all the prizes instead of immediately like we normally do.

Surprisingly, this change might be good news for the cup, since there will be a few more people able to attend (given that the release event may be postponed.) I, for one, will likely be more than happy to join if the release event won't happen this weekend, when I was originally not planning to.

So its a double edged sword of sorts - both good and bad.

This is certainly true. In a perfect world, I want set 3 tomorrow - our numbers would decline for this cup, but having set 3 out is far more important. Part of the reason we are stalwart in our schedule, beyond having very busy people help run the tournament and setting our schedules months in advance, is that there was a possibility that this could happen and, if it did, this weekend would be the worst if the ruby cup were not happening.

So will the AA commons still be pulled from the store tomorrow? Or will they be offered until the patch goes live? Also, like others, I'm also interested if the gold boost is going to stay active until the patch goes live.

Xenavire

This is the pattern with every single launch Hex has had since the beginning, so it's unfortunately not unexpected.

Considering we only have had a single set launch (set 1 was just beta launch), it is hardly a pattern. :p And set 2, once it was moved to December, actually came out perfectly and with only a handful of bugs, which would have been the case this time had it not been for the memory leak (or so it seems, I don't want to say I know the exact reasons in case I am wrong!)

So this is a disappointing turn of events and, considering game development in general, not all that surprising, but its certainly not a pattern. ;)

thegreybetween
07-13-2015, 12:53 PM
...And set 2, once it was moved to December, actually came out perfectly...

To be fair, Set 2 was bumped to November and dropped on November 32nd to keep the promise. "Perfectly" might be a little generous. That said, I agree with your sentiment - They are getting much better in their communicated estimates, but still have a few growing pains to iron out.

Well, the original launch of Beta itself was also delayed even if we did have the Kickstarter access to Alpha prior. 3 items is usually all a person needs to see and mark a pattern. I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised with the next release, that's for sure.

Xenavire
07-13-2015, 01:01 PM
Yeah, I am well aware the initial estimate for set 2 was pretty far off, but once they nailed it down they got very close - and the same is true here, they got very close. And I was only talking about set releases - other patches have gone even better. :p

There is no way they could push select features without the entire patch, so I can say now that chest opening and EA earlier than the rest is simply out of the question.

Just to cover bases - IF (and thats a big IF) the release event would be on the same weekend as VIP or the Gencon event, will an effort be made to make things mesh together well? (As an example, a VIP tournament is essentially a guaranteed 4 hours, and cuts heavily into turbo-drafting time).

It would be very nice to know that you guys will try to get it as fair as possible. :)

Well of course the release event will shift, but when you say shift do you mean if the patch is next week then the release will be next weekend because the problem with this is the fact that an event was announced for a date a few weeks in advance and thus people could plan for it, having it postponed is understandable and I'm going to take it as it comes of course, but it would at least be nice to know in advance that I won't be able to play a single game during the release celebration vs non-stop play that i originally expected :(

07-13-2015, 01:54 PM
Honestly, I'm disappointed, but also rather happy. Anyone who was in the stream knows I have connection problems that keep me from playing drafts right now, and the date of the release celebration was going to have me frantically calling people trying to fix the issue. With this little extension, assuming it lasts a week as expected, means that with luck I'll be able to fix them by then and participate in the release celebration with everyone. :)

Best of luck fixing the bug!

Hehe I think you're reading between the lines. I just interpreted to mean it'll at least stay in place until release.

What saddens me most about this is not as much that set 3 is delayed, but that this means the developers will have one fewer week to deliver PvE before the end of the year. With everything that Cory promised again during the charity stream (over 10 dungeons, full PvE with many PvE features before the end of the year), I feel like the engineering team needs all the weeks it can get to focus on that.

Some FAQ
1.) Will Release Celebration dates change?
Release Celebration dates will shift if the launch does not happen this week.


I'm cool with postponing the release - if there are bugs they need to be squished. Just releasing it knowing that it won't work anyways would be a terrible decision.
That said, if the release celebration is just shifted to next week I'd really really REALLY be more than sad.
As I stated some weeks ago in another thread, I do need some time in advance to plan for stuff like that and I totally blocked off that weekend from doing anything but playing Hex. I have no problem with doing other stuff this weekend but there is no way on earth I could block next weekend on a short notice like that which means I'd probably won't get to play in the release celebration AT ALL. That would really make me cry :(

No chance of that. ;) I'd still draft 1-1-1 given the option. And I got a good 4-5 months out of 2-2-1 - a bit sick of Fuzzy/Bunoshi/Giles at this point though. I'm really looking forward to 3-3-3.

More seriously, I'd have really liked for everything to have gone smoothly, even if I couldn't participate. However, I strongly support any delay that improves our overall experience once the patch goes live. :)

Well it benefits them more than us to get this out ASAP. I have enough invested in this game that I'm not going to abandon it if they delay content.

However, this also isn't my only game to play. I have pretty much an endless backlog of games to play. If this doesn't come out in the next week or so, it's not a big deal to me. This is a game I will always come back to because it's more than just a video game to me.

I know I'm probably in the minority for this thinking, but that's just how I operate :)

I'm really excited for this patch, and sad it's not here yet... but I'm really addicted to Ark and playing it with a bunch of friends anyway so yeah, I'm with you. I'll just keep playing Ark until it's ready. ;)

I'm definitely with you on this. I have a limited amount of free time, and there are way too many TV shows, movies, books, and video games that I enjoy watching/reading/playing. Hex has been in the forefront for me for a while, a lot of the other stuff has been taking a back seat. If there's an extended delay for set 3, I can easily find something else to do, but still come back to playing Hex with open arms as soon as the patch is ready.

Phenteo - just thought I would ask, but with the patch being delayed, whats the deal with weekly tickets? Use them or lose them? Or is the possibility of an extension on the table and just not decided on yet? My gut says use/lose, but figured it wouldn't hurt to get clarification.

I'm not entirely sure. But it is probably use the weekly ticket or lose it as it normally would be.

+10 to that.
We all appreciate the huge amount of hard work you're all putting in. Sure, the delay was disappointing, especially at the 11th hour, but it's all for our benefit in the long run.
I'd like to praise the communication too, equally as important. On a side note, I've been watching some of the drama unfold around that other company's latest digital release -- let's just say that they have demonstrated how exactly not to communicate with their userbase.

You could walk outside. There is this world. It can be wonderful. The trees and the ground feel so life like. The smells are amazing at times. The sounds are the best you can get for realism. You can tell a lot of effort went into making this world.

Sounds like a trap I will stay inside for at least another 16 hours then I will break cycle and shower get dressed and venture out for food to then watch a movie with family to then return to start cycle again

It was in a Go/No-Go meeting that happened on Monday where the decision to delay launch due to the Memory Leak Issue happened. When Cory was on the stream, we were still in GO mode.

An update: We were able to fix a few other bugs that we've been working on and reproducing the Memory Leak Bug more often now. They're working on the fix, but most likely won't be able to launch tomorrow as a fix hasn't come in yet.

I listened to a leadership focused topic once that talked about "go fever." The basic idea is that during a space shuttle launch no one wants to be the one to say "no go" and when that happens we can often minimize the dangers of a problem. This leads to bad things like space shuttle explosions on launch pads. I applaud the person who was brave enough to give the "no go" here as it probably saved all of us a lot of headaches.

Timezones are so last century. I still say we need to convert the whole planet to UST (Universal Space Time). We're never getting off this god-forsaken rock if we can't even agree on what day and time it is. ;)

Everyone would get used to it eventually, it only seems weird now because you're used to basing your internal clock on daylight. And once we're out in space, who gives a crap what time it is on one thin sliver of Earth? ;)

I never said that UST would be based on a 24 hour cycle. ;)

Although certainly our systems seem to be wired to function that way. We could try it out for a few decades and see if we needed to adjust space time. Likely if we really were spread out across the galaxy into multiple planetary systems, we would use UST for interstellar communications and to keep track universally of dates and times, but use a separate, planetary cycle-of-day time to handle local operations and day-to-day activities.

You see stuff like this in series like The Ender Saga.

Funny story. Buddy of mine was on a distributed team. They had folks all over the globe and times were a pain in the tuchus. So, instead of scheduling meetings at times (that then had to be translated into local time), they scheduled at colors. "We're meeting at Orange to talk about the project" was a reasonable sentence. There was, of course, a conversion from Color to local time so everyone could create their own lookup table.

Since the meeting "times" weren't in actual times, there was actually much less confusion as there was no inherent semantic payload in using a color as a stand-in for a time. People adapted very quickly and it continues to work to this day.

Why invent a whole new time system when we already have a perfectly working one in stardates (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stardate), which accounts for your location in the galaxy, your velocity of travel and other factors which influence the passage of time? ;-)
