Just talked to the Huenink Brothers and they said it won't be this weekend starting Sept 7 for sure.

Joel said 0% chance it will be ready this week.

Rick said it would be "overly optimistic to get it out before the end of the month".

 

They are 100% fixing bugs and making sure all of the features work with each other. They know that the community wants it and they know that it has been longer than a year. They understand the frustration that is out there but they are not going to rush what they are doing.

 

now translation just in case everyone missed my last one. its done when its done. but we are going to continue to put abstract progress bars at the top of the forum discussion. and get mad at everyone for getting mad at us for getting mad at them for getting mad at us.

 

on a side note i did call it being another whole month in my last translation

Am I disappointed about not getting to play soon? Sure, but I'd rather wait a bit longer than have a game that's unplayable.

 

Seeing all the crybabies makes me think if I was Roland I wouldn't even give streamers an estimate anymore since they will blab to their followers the second they get the info and unfortunately many of these followers don't seem to understand what estimate means. Here's a hint it does not mean promise or guarentee.

From who or where did you guys get the information about hordes becoming random after day 3?

 

They won't be. There was a few comments discussing the day hordes of previous alphas, during which someone then mentioned how tough it would be if the blood moon hordes were random. Someone else then started it as "fact" sarcastically to troll people, and it got repeated.

Well, I'm sure everyone can agree with me: Its good that it will be the first of next month because, I'll be back from vacation. :)

 

I mean, who else can type: "OMG OMG OMG!!! THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!!" Like me? My keyboard was made by angels, so don't even try to type that...

Newt:

They only come at night.... Mostly....

 

Dont worry, Newt, I am one of the greatest survivors in Navazgane.

I've been trained by and worked next to Seal Team 3,

years in the Marine Corps and Navy,

I have shot threw my previous bullet holes at 500 meters.

Don't worry, we will make it to day 70 on one life.

 

Newt: It won't make any difference. Hoard night will chew you up and spit you out. It will be bad. You will cry like a little sissy girl.

On the bright side, just think of it as waiting for a18. If a17 would have released back in june we would all be in the next thread talking, foaming at the mouth, waiting for the newest unity update to be added to a18.

 

Oh and those memes you all posted after the news had me cracking up lmao.

@MM Roland, Thanks for info, but as I said before, they can still share some gameplay video every 7-8 days !!! so we keep commenting on what to improve or change or look bad or complain for something rather than just delay :). I love watching new feature video.

Pretty sure Gazz is referring to the old day 6 dog horde day (or was it day 5).. been so long can't remember anymore... If he isn't then uh... all hell's breaking loose.

 

I know. Hence the triple smile. I was trying to mock Gazz because the horde night fits the description and it has been suggested to make it random many times.

Video! clap clap clap Video!! clap clap clap Video!!!...

My only concern is that they are taking all this time and it will still be buggy. Not really a concern per say, because i know it will happen. My concern will be reaction. Even my own, because i have been around since A-6? so I know it will be buggy but it will be more difficult to run into game breaking bugs after this much polish.

 

I know it will be "experimental" and i know it will break but it will be hard after this long of a wait to run into random map resetting bugs. Not expecting anything to change, just thinking about it... :/

 

All this talk about months of bug fix after bug fix and i cant keep from expecting a somewhat bug free game.

 

 

Totally understand where you're coming from. However, you still have to keep in mind that no matter how much testing they do there are limits to how many situations/scenarios they can simulate. The pimps could spend a decade hunting bugs and on release people would still find things they missed. Just a fact of life. Personally I'm just glad they put up with all of us constantly begging/pleading with them for info/release date estimates. Lol. At the end of the day all we can do is wait and hope.

No worries! I just started playing co-op with a bunch of friends who rented a server, and we are quite busy building the greatest horde bunker ever! So take your time, we'll stay totally occupied with alpha 16 until you guys are good and ready with your amazing new features and bug fixes:)

Remember A16 experimental and launch? IIRC Joel decided it'd be best to just get it out the door, and there were loads of bugs. Experimental dragged on and on addressing the slew of bugs until they just said ♥♥♥♥ it, and A16 launched with some very impactful bugs (sleeper spawning issues and farming lag off the top of my head) left unaddressed. I would much rather that they significantly thin the list of bugs, which reduces time spent in/alleviates the load of experimental, and, in the end, wait another month than be given an A17 full of joy-killing bugs to play for the next year+. I'm glad to hear they're taking their time.

 

The impatient in this thread should remember that time is relative and the more of it they spend on this forum complaining about no A17, the longer it'll seem before A17 is out. Set a reminder on your calendar for October 1st, forget about 7DtD 'til then, time will fly and you'll come back to a game in experimental or very nearly.

I can't agree more. I also think that they should spend as much time as they need to reduce the backlash as much as possible in regards of game being unstable and buggy.

 

What as a mod creator I would love though if experimental became available earlier for modding purposes so that SDX could be updated and mod authors including myself could start working on porting the mods over to A17 before the public launch of A17 Experimental.
