Delaying the RIOT launch till next week

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

 

I have to make a difficult call this morning. 

 

This morning at 3 am, we got everything staged for all the updates, but during some final testing, we noticed a problem with Easy Anti Cheat. The team has spent the last several hours working with Kamu to address it, but I don't see a quick resolution. 

 

All four planned updates are intermingled into the same build, so there is no way for me to break out individual features.

 

At this point I have several options:

1) Keep servers offline to do further troubleshooting for an indefinite amount of time

2) Launch without Easy Anti Cheat or BattlEye enabled. (No protection against cheating)

3) Roll back and delay the launch

 

I have decided to go with Option 3 to delay the launch and make sure we do this correctly.

 

Unfortunately, we will have to correct press releases and stop planned marketing efforts. 

 

We’ll try this again next week.

 

Apologies,

Matt

Allright. Maybe a bit sad, but allright.

As long as I can go online and roleplay like a nerd in some alley

Thanks for the news.

You guys need to slow things down a bit. Your maintenances always get extended and RIOT isn't ready in the first place.

 

//Edit: Wait, press releases and marketing effort? Before the engine upgrade? Not a good idea at all.

lmao, didn't see this coming /s

But yeah take the servers off and do what you have to do. Those nerds can go to something else.

 

And "the final test" should have been a week before doing any marketing....

To be honest I'd rather chose option 1 or 2, 3 seems like the worst choice at this point.

Well, it seems that my temporary comeback will have to wait one more week.

It's not like you would piss off that many people with option #1

 

Edit: I agree with pushing marketing back. It would be stupid to do it now imo.

I'd say option 2.. the previous anti cheat wasn't good enough still cheaters roaming around.
