Another great video from Extra Credits about computer professionals.

 

 

I never knew what QA did for their processes. This is insightful. I hope you guys enjoy the video too.

Cool video. This is confirmation that WG has no QA department.

:facepalm:

I still try and raise a flag and post now and again, then check back every few months after another update to see if there's been any progress.

 

It's when I stop paying them to employ me in their Quality Assurance Department that I'll really start to worry...

Well... that explains everything. No wonder Half life is a successful series. The developers play their own game!

if these devs played their own games on something other then a Commodore 64 they would realize they [edited] up.

I said it over 4 years ago that wg didn't play their own game, which is why they:  1) think it's a very difficult game to play and  2) don't have any idea what makes for good gameplay.

But I see Priolia playing, and isn't she their top dev?

 

And as I pointed out here, reporting 2.0.3.0+ continuing CtDs, TragicLoss is a a WG employee and a forum mod here- she plays regularly too (AND has CtDs too, even on-line on Twitch for all to see).

 

I suppose the logical next Q is does Priolia have CtDs when she plays, and if so why aren't they sorted immediately, since she's so close to the action (so to speak)?

 

These problems make it a very difficult game to load and stay loaded, let alone play, so without these issues sorted, no wonder we've trouble with good gameplay. Surely you need a stable game, before you can get to work on other issues, like the 2.0.3.0 map improvements, essential as they no doubt were:

 

"Adriatic" and "Arctic" maps have been visually improved.

Adriatic:

  • Added glaciers in the southeast corner around the refinery.
  • Added swimming whales in various places in the water.
  • Reworked the salt lake area, changed the shape of lakes and also reworked how steam is displayed.
  • Added villages in the eastern part of the map.
  • Added a forest near the military base.

Arctic:

  • Improved the level of detail in the coastal area. Added underwater reefs.
  • Reworked the clouds to add a picturesque touch to the map.
  • Added additional objects in the mountains surrounding the Mining Plant.

 

Picturesque touches all, but we're trying to get a game off the ground here, not dabble with a Rembrandt oil painting.

Forum admins are like toe fungus in WG power hierarchy.  So, anything from them is probably discounted with prejudice.

 

Priolia has spent over 4 years proving that she cares nothing for the concerns of the people actually playing the game.  I remember how rude she was way back when she occasionaly posted something related to the supetest program.  And, since George_ Patton recently revealed that they only wanted new players as supertesters and only considered newbie feedback, she is also out of touch with the playerbase as a whole as well as what makes for good QA (super-tester is a level of QA).

That- and GP's resignation from the ENTIRE WG trilogy- as outlined here I find really disturbing- I'm a WoP newbie and not the only one with problems, and I'm not talking flying lessons.
