Very true, but that's been the case for a while. I thought what he discussed as deficiencies in the raid rather accurate of the devs approach for a while, and frankly problems they've been ignoring for some time.

Yep. Mostly stuff that, if they had bothered to actually test any of it, would have been dealt with before the update. SSG is pretty much Turbine 2.0, same crap different name.

Default & Von 6 end chest is broken

March 23rd, 2017, 16:28
Actually, they were told about some of it when it was out on Lamania for preview. Also, apparently the end chest in VON 6 is broken. Haven't gone back through the posts to find out what the problem is.

Game is back up.

Being told about it and actually having a QA process in place is two different things. Far too much if found before going live that is let go to hit idiotic targets, and far too much just gets let go period.

Case in point; Pay Pal payments being broken. Turned out they had been for some time, and SSG ignored it, raking in hundreds of transactions before complaints grew heavy enough, and it hit MassivelyOP and Reddit causing bad publicity, for them to bother looking into it. Not that they've bothered to give the points or ViP to people who paid for them. I'm still waiting, and haven't had either a response or my points. They have until tomorrow when I'll escalate with Pay Pal.

Patch today, make sure to update for Friday.

Code:
Items

    The Heart of Blood tooltip has been updated to reflect that it is used for Heroic Racial Reincarnation.
    Equipped quivers will now properly auto-gather when set to do so.
    The treasure tables for Epic Plane of Night (VON 6) have been rebuilt to properly drop the things they should, including Greater Tokens of the Twelve, Red Dragonscales, Mythic bonuses, and Reaper bonuses.
    Most Damage Reduction bypassing effects for handwraps should now properly work. (NOTE: Shintao Cord and Kyosho's Ring set bonus is not included in this fix.)

Monsters

    Enemies that disappear no longer sometimes receive multiple Champion buffs or heal to full.

Quests and Adventure Areas

    Under the Big Top
        Puzzle wheel traps now have reduced damage, in that they only cause a single trap explosion rather than the multiple explosions that happens previously.

Races

    Male Dragonborn two-handed sword animations have been adjusted.
    Drow's Darkfire has been adjusted as follows: It only fires one missile, has a Base Damage of 1d6 per character level, with no max caster level, has its damage scale at 100% spell power, costs 5 spell points instead of Action Boost charges, and has a six second cooldown.

Default Win 10 users should avoid "creators update" per forum posts

April 27th, 2017, 07:10
Those of you on Windows 10 may want to avoid the "Creators Update" (whatever that is). Apparently it's a disaster. See link below:

Windows 10 avoid the creators update (for now)

Edit:
The following may be a temporary solution to the problem, unfortunately, it appears that MS reinstalls the stuff that was uninstalled on subsequent updates, & it looks like a pain to go thru the "fix" process:

Windows 10 Game Bar PSA
