    Default Nomenclature Change: Updates 14 and 15

    This isn't really worthy of a big announcement per say, but wanted to mention it as more news articles start to appear about the Expansion...

    Previously we had been calling the Expansion "Xpack 1" and the August update "Update 14". We've shifted to labeling the Expansion as the 14th update, and the August update is now called Update 15. This doesn't change when the Xpack launches, nor the August target for when the Xpack content will be available in the DDO Store. Just wanted to clarify in case you started to see press articles talking about content being in the Store in Update 15.

    Ooh ooh... so has the re-enhancement UI/P.R.E.-fill-out which moved from the old named Expansion Pack to Update 14 due to timing now moved to Update 15 -OR- did inspector space-time get ahold of the schedule and find that due to a name-stickyness requirement/feature of the re-enhancementization of DDO that it must stay with Update 14 and hence it's been moved back up to June XPpack timeframe.

    You should really watch your name-stickyness setup on these features. Eladrin and systems team can sleep (and/or go outside) in July (no year given) or some such.

    P.S: You should let them go see the Avengers movie though... might give them some good ideas for systems work.

    It makes a ton more sense to do it that way and will make versioning much much easier to understand.

    But there might be nerd rage from some special customers when they are told they paid for a mere "update" and not an awesome "expansion" :-)

    You could change its name to "Jerry" as long as you do it properly!

    Does this alter which updates get bug fixes? In the past the odd number updates had more fixes and the evens were more just quest packs. Now if update 15 is going to be new quest packs, will it have bug fixes or will that be update 16?

    so, reading in to this... does this mean we're going to start hearing more about old update 14/new update 15?

    Ok... MotU = Update 14 now..... And the Update 14 Fernando mentioned in his MotU announcement is now Update 15.

    Make sense to keep the versioning consistent. :-) Thanks for the heads up.

    Since 'Updates are Free' does that mean we don't have to pay for the 'xpack1' anymore? [/devilish grin]

    RE: THAC0 - No changes needed, nobody listens to Fernando anymore, we're still waiting to take Paralyzing off one weapon and add it to another...

    This makes me a very sad panda. Either sales are very low or the content isnt good enough to call it an expansion. The former is very doubtful. The latter is reasonable though.

    I hope they do.

    It looks like a Jerry.



    @mystafyi: That seems like a very odd conclusion to leap to. The far more reasonable scenario is that they wanted to keep consistency in nomenclature for internal control purposes.
