Why can't they continue having testers test alpha, just have workers come back and view the comments and forums and then continue to the next phase?
Because if something breaks while everyone is holiday, there will be no one to fix it and it may skew their data.They'd also probably not have time to catch up as well as keep up with the ongoing feedback.
probably because it's Alpha and stuff goes wrong and needs to be fixed all the time.
There are some pretty big bugs on Alpha that Blizzard has been trying to fix quickly. I can see how keeping the Alpha up with new gamebreaking bugs blocking everyone for over a week wouldn't work.
Can I use the congo line to lure the dancing ghost trolls out of my Garrison and get rid of them?
No more dataminable goodness for 2 weeks? nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu T_T
Perhaps even because it's alpha, things are going to go wrong and having a skeleton crew to try and fix those problems doesn't make good business sense; it's better to give the employees time off, relax and come back fresh to it after the new year. You know, good management and stuff. It's different for live servers, you need a skeleton crew to keep those alive, but you don't need a slew of devs sitting there, although there are probably some that are on call for the holidays.
I wish when the beta launches, my inbox goes ding and I have an invitation. Big hopes.anyways, merry christmas to everyone in here.
I am glad they don't make the devs work during the holidays.
Is that the symbol of Deathly Hallows on Panser's shirt? Very WoWy :D
To Hell with Christmas! I work in a restaurant and I sure as Hell don't get to have the day off! Why should any other entitled numbnuts be given the same courtesy? Everyone should be forced to work during the holiday season!Bah Humbug!
Hey....these blizz guys deserve time with friends and family like all of us,....give them their time, and let them return with fresh eyes......Happy Holidays Blizz......
I really think that the little power bar in the center with health, and power is really cool for default UI. I glad Panzer no longer need the glasses, but I miss them they were cool. So I suggest Top Hat Tuesday! Perfect for a season of cheer.
Now till Jan 3 for the sale I believe.
Cool! Some weeks break its awesome, who gonna stay home for X-mas btw? Let the testers go meet the santa clause!
