      Release earlier draft or more completed draft (Poll)

      The Fall 2023 Update for Wallaru, Beastmoon, and the Guild Museum was released earlier than most players are used to.

      As a result, none of these new features content were finely polished when Test Realm opened and players encountered far greater bugs than usual. However, this earlier release also allowed players to provide earlier input as to how they'd like to push a certain direction to how Ki could update moving forward.

      However had Ki released Test Realm later (or as normal timing goes for seasonal releases), Ki could give us a better picture of how they're envisioning the direction of their work. And the player base could see a more finalized draft that's been polished to a greater extent. Not to mention, Ki could possibly a more expanded coverage of possible features/content like jewels or gears (things that wouldn't have been developed had Ki released earlier).

      There's no right answer I suppose.

      But what would your prefer?

      Re: Release earlier draft or more completed draft (Poll)

      I personally prefer a more polished, ready-to-play, Test Realm. Fighting creatures who don't drop anything, opening chests that don't work properly, etc., isn't fun. Testing a feature only to see a comment that the feature may not even come to the Live game for months, and that the actual difficulty of the feature will be exponentially more difficult (Guild Museum)? That just makes me sad.

      more completed because look at what happened when Azteca came to the live game too early it took them 2 months of maintenance. to fix it.

      Always take the time to be thorough and complete the task. 90% is not complete and ready for consumption.

      ALWAYS more polishing. We've all been able to tell when the past few updates were rushed, and it's always been messy.

      Cool Re: Release earlier draft or more completed draft (Poll)

      I'll keep this real simple:

      Whether it's Test Realm or taking Test Realm live, I really, REALLY wish KI would just take their time and put out a quality product with no "bugs/glitches/issues". I am perfectly fine if that means one singular completed Test Realm and addition of new content a year.

      hugs,

      Van

      pretty much what is currently said. years ago ok because it was simpler to do. up until Azteca. Take a month . as years ago test realm was a month. and it was open 7 days a week. dunno why it is closed on weekends.
