ANOTHER WEEK!? C'mon already with Phase 1, that puts it like 2 weeks behind schedule?
I hope Phase 2 is like 1 week. "Oh controllers work, ok Phase 3 let's GOOOO."
Well this is encouraging I guess:
"Keep in mind that testing the gamepad is the focus of the second phase, so the available content will be mostly the same"
Its phase 1 with gamepads and just more participants for stress tests
Yeah, it should be short and I imagine they are holding back until phase 1 is perfect, so barring any complications it should go quick.
100,000 testers isn't anything to sniff at, I imagine the server bugs he referenced were rather challenging. Think about it, they probably increased the number of testers exponentially, that would be scary as hell to see if your protocols and backends were up to the stress or not.
This is also true. Y-P did mention he's trying to push the servers to the limits with the first phase, and trying to get as many new testers in as possible, which is also encouraging for those of us who haven't received a golden ticket. Edited, Mar 19th 2013 12:02pm by Louiscool
