Obviously the patch is 99% complete since it’s going up today sometime, so why can’t we get the patch notes BEFORE the patch??

Better yet, how about putting patches with full patch notes on a public test server 1-2 weeks before they go live.

We generally don’t release patch information beforehand for the simple reason that things don’t always make it. Sometimes, we have to hold off on a feature at the last minute, and it’s better not to over-promise.

that statement is completely unreasonable, your patch releases contain hundreds of bugs and errors which you still have to be fixed later on, so releasing the information does not affect in any different way as the bugs and errors you are already including, if you dont want to release the information right now, then atleast come up with better excuses.

If you don’t like how Arenanet operates then play a different game. Simple as that.

operates the game? do you even read what you type, is not about how they operate the game, is about how they handle the information, like the 40 megabyte patch they did a couple of days ago in which they never revealed what it contained.

As we stated at the time, that was a maintenance build. Nothing was changed. The 30-40MB you downloaded was the update process downloading a new EXE file, which happens whenever a build is released, regardless of if any content has changed.

How about you release patch notes with the stuff you are 100% sure about(balancing, already announced changes/additions) and release other stuff you are not sure about as a surprise content?

That’s exactly what we do—we can’t be 100% sure on ANYTHING until we actually release the update, so we pre-announce nothing.

The update notes are now live.
