why no patch notes for todays patch ?


10/8/13 - NA/EU Server Update (PS3, 360) @ 10 AM PDT / 5 PM GMT

Hi all,

We will be bringing down the NA and EU servers (PS3 and Xbox 360 only, PC is not included in this update) for a brief server update at 10 AM PDT / 5 PM GMT on Wednesday 10/2/13.

The estimated duration is *** 2 hours *** for this update. Patch Notes will not be updated.

I'll be back in the morning to let you know the status of the servers as the update happens.




Seems kinda strange to me :confused::rolleyes:

I'd say it wasn't small. Over 2hrs for what? It says, "missing string" issue w/ Volge Violence PURSUIT!

REALLY!???

Destiny can't get here fast enough...just sayin!

Today was a hotfix pushing out a single fix - not a full patch. :)

What was the fix?

I read somewhere last week that a "hotfix" was coming this week to fix the continuing issues with the siege at Northpoint stalling at stage 5.

This is just a guess, as they have not confirmed what was fixed.

After the hotfix, I played a siege at kinship where stage 7 didn't happen. It only lasted about 25 seconds and no volge appeared before the Stage 7 Complete message popped up.

been patching for 25 min and no end in sight. A lot of data to change a pursuit title...

The notes in game just said it fixed the "String Missing" on the Volge Violence pursuit. I didn't notice any other ninja'd stuff when I was on earlier and I don't think they've figured out North Point yet.

An answer from the "director of community" letting the community know what the hotfix was would have been nice. The community would have appreciated it.

That is a LOT of data to fix a couple of missing strings. I think they did some undercover something or other.

This. I was patching for over 20 minutes. All I could keep thinking was that it was way more than just fixing a few lines of text, that there had to be something more. But I didn't play long enough to see if they stealthed anything into the patch.

Typical! Maybe they found out problems we hadn't yet,

Looks like they nerfed Dark Matter major arkfalls. I have seen one in the 6 hours I have been playing.

Wow, you guys either have even crappier connections than me or everyone was dling at the same time as you since the patch took less than 10 minutes for me. The installing took longer than the dl. Course I did still have to wait an hour for the servers to come back online...

the update to 1.104 took me less than 5min to dl...1.1041...25 min wtf?

It only took 5 minutes to dl for me.

Looking like 1h25ms @1.79mbps for me.
They might be patching/replacing the Client side game engine to increase performance maybe??
or pre installing future dlc or other content,
or a 2nd new texture pack, but that seems unlikely why update the texture pack twice?

Less than 5 seconds to DL at 10.85Mbs. Taking a lot longer to install though. LOL

that's it you count the patch dl and it's install seperately. Most people just keep track of how long they were on the patch screen and just call it all a patch dl. So from starting patching process to being able to play the game is called an install by lots.

For me the patch Dl was 2 minutes, the install was 20 and the optimization was another 15. So the total was almost 40 minutes. It was at 5.50 Mbps a second.

I'd love to know what we got in this patch. I don't believe for a second that the fix for the Volge mission was it. Five to Ten minutes of download would put the patch way above the code required to fix some text.

The text wasn't the only problem. there was a glitch some of us had, that once you finished the final siege needed, it reset the pursuit and didn't give you the completion. I reported it a couple times, myself.

Isn't that server-side patching?
It's the server that has control of the data storage of achievements, and anything stored on our end that doesn't agree with the server gets punted in favor of server version anyway.

Not sure. I was just pointing out that there were more issues with that pursuit than just the text. And as somebody already mentioned, since the patch one of the sieges just ends after wave 7 starts, with plenty of time left. Sometimes it ends and gives people their rewards, other times it just disappears into non-existance and takes you earnings with it, no scoreboard or anything.

Am I the only one that found this amusing? In response to the OP asking why Trion didn't tell us what the patch was for, even though only one thing was fixed, the only response from Trion avoided saying what it was.

Well played.

Not the intention. :) It was a server update for 360 and PS3 (the issue for Volge Violence had already been fixed on PC, so the update wasn't needed there.)
