    Brigby, can we get confirmation that this weekend's Bo4T event is going to use the current Standard (AKH forward)?  I sincerely hope that you're not planning to push the DOM update out and change AKH's availability the day before the event (or worse, sometime in the middle of it).  Thanks!

    I’m 99.999% certain tney will give us some heads up.

    I don't believe the update will be released this week, so yes, this weekend's BoFT will still use the current Standard that includes AKH.

    In the pre-release notes it says Teferi will be available at launch (doesn't say of for cash only or vault immediately) and Jaya will come at a later date.

    I think that 5 nodes with one charge every 8 hours, starting with one charge, is not too much for a monday to wednesday event.
    I disagree. For me five nodes are a nightmare no matter what the event may be.

    Current walkers rotate out the 23rd, maybe Dom launches Thursday?

    If history proves correct, Tuesday is oktagon's usual release day. If you're hoping for New PW, they sadly won't be released in the vault for a few more weeks. They always put them up for sale first.

    It's Tuesday - boy, I'm excited and hope you're correct.
    But.
    If history taught us one thing: releases come with bugs. The first time an event is run, it comes with bugs. This weekend is going to be interesting : I hope there'll be devs available

    Tuesday is gone. Maybe the update comes today after Karn rotates out?

    Well they broke the normal routine,  so it's anyone's guess now.  Hoping today during the lull of larger events.  I fully expect bugs to occur,  and not just a few. This is a big set and likely are making last minute adjustments that will probably trigger a bug due to lack of testing said adjustment.  But I could just be a little too pessimistic and should give them some good faith that they can release this with only a few issues. 

    That said, you're right... this weekend is going to be very interesting with all the expected issues... including bugs in the event.

    Eh. We liked the new Tuesday releases because it wasn’t uncommon for the new content to drop on Thursday, then the bugged event started Friday and the devs were gone for the weekend. 

    However, it’s clear that D3GO finds value having the players beta test the game for free. Heck, some of us even paid them for the privilege.

    I really don't know what's worse... Having to delay a release for a day or two and explain to the community (can't be more tho, cause the new event is scheduled for the weekend)... or keeping this absolute silence which looks like the devs are just hiding...

    Well yeah, i know what's worse, and it's the second option...

    what the hell D3..? how can you just not give us an eta for the release being so ridiculously close?? 
    You really not gonna say absolutely nothing until its released?

    Aha. I think I understand the confusion. @Laeuftbeidir @madwren. It looks like the events were updated yesterday. When I checked them yesterday morning, it hadn’t yet appeared. 

    Bken isn’t surprised because she gets early warning from Brigby that changes are about to happen (although he’s assured me that he never says exactly what those changes are) so she can know to be available for mod duties. 

    Its not some conspiracy, but I can see how other teams might think it unfair.
