Patch 12.5 Update

Hey guys! I'm creating this as a sticky'd thread to report on the patching process tonight. There isn't a change to report at this time: the team is hard at work on getting the patch out tonight and things are continuing to look good.

What's happening right now is that the public patch 12.5 is being built/uploaded to the servers. This process will take several hours. During those hours, QA will be running their own tests on the as-close-to-live-as-we-can-make-it version -- they download the same build from the internal CDN, patch just like you do and make sure it works. Ideally, they'll give the thumbs up and as soon as the public upload is complete we'll push the button and it will be available to everyone!

Risks are that we could find some previously unseen fatal bug during this last round of testing. As I said earlier, things look good... but you never know with a game at this point in development, and we've certainly overhauled a lot of code with this one! If the worst happens, I'll let you know... if not, I'll update this thread in a couple of hours to let you know it's a go!

    Thank you Ben. Try and grab a quick nap if you haven't been roped into testing. We'll see you for the update in a few hours, and maybe grab a nap as well (with our fingers crossed!) Hopefully, there will be reason not to sleep tomorrow.

    Man... right as I'm recovering from my head cold. Off for two days, no patch. Feeling well enough to go back in tomorrow and already downed my Nyquil, patch incoming late!

    J/k. Never sad about the arrival of a patch. Especially not one that's been katamariing additional fixes and features for weeks while one stubborn bug kept it from release!

    I'm sure he'd update the first post if there were something important enough to note.

    But how will we know it has been updated without hammering F5?
