    1) test server should naturally have higher capacity than live servers to verify what is the amount of resources needed for live servers to work properly before they have any chance to fail
    2) it also shows they fail at executing usual testing strategy, if they cant even provide enough resources for players to do functional testing, let alone load testing.

    It says ALOT about the issues that can be there few months from now.

    you weren't expecting players to test the game they've been waiting to play for months now?
    this is why i said the game wont be able to handle the "real world" environment, because of remarks like these.
    time will tell i guess...
    Tracy Island, Buzz lightyear. are you getting the picture.

    They didn't do performance testing this time. They just wanted to show you that they really are working on Unity and have some work done so that the scaremongers stop creating conspiracy theories. Obviously not everybody will be satisfied and some scaremongers will continue.

    may is practically out the window, and the new launch date appears to be june now, since the summer event is in june, which means, yet another deadline missed by BB, what a total shocker
    and people thought that cyberpunk's launch went sideways :P
    this launch timeline set by BB looks a lot like a mexican soap opera …being that the only difference between the two is that the soap actually runs

    …i must say, BB's programmers must be the worst in the world. i just have a question, do you guys look for the worst or are they just atracted to that company?

    Please - pretty please wait - don't implement anything until you have a version that actually works.

    I don't know what you fixed- I don't know if you implemented the fixes to the test server. But if you did not, how can you know they works??
    I do know that when I last was online on test, it was not a well working version. If you put that mess online you will make people stop playing.
    I also know that I have not been able to log on to test for around 3 weeks now.

    https://prnt.sc/19npsbb

    With the quality of support you will shut out players one by one, when their island data is corrupted, and they are told that it is a known issue, that it is already fixed or that they must reset cache. Only thing I did that can have caused my problem is to sell settlers in harbor.

    I don't think you will find many players that are so keen on this game that they will set aside 2- 4 hours a day to sent out specialists. Or put up with the time differences between server and game, and the zone refreshes and the ..................
    If for some reason support feels the need to edit what I wrote, please delete entire post instead, dont put words into my mouth that I never said.

    The "live version" is different from the test server - it will contain updates.

    Well that is somewhat not very convincing. We know from the past that must new stuff BB makes has lots of buggs, so a new version that has not been tested, please no.

    you said this in chat also problem is then who has tested the new version who has spotted the new or old bugs that have meant to have been fixed yet havent? because you dont have the staff to have thousands of hours of testing done thats why you have relied on us the players to do that... but we cant if it is not uploaded to the test server first so we can play it... the test version still has bugs that have not been dealt and I can pretty much guarantee come the 21st I will be here saying you didnt fix it etc etc
