What was this update?

I just got an update for the live servers.

There’s no Echo and no experimental card. What’s up?

Presumably preparation for Echo next week or the week after. If the client downloads all the data for it now, there’s less stress on the servers when Echo goes live and everyone wants to play at once.

It’s this:

Hope they fixed the Blizzard world server crash loop that was happening yesterday.

This has got to be the lamest patch in a long time, oh well

You’d be amazed at the number of people who were irate over no achievements in QPC…

The main thing is they fixed some archives pathing issues.

Thank God. I hate having almost 0 dps achievements, now i can do them in QPC.

There’s not even a PTR patch with balance changes yet. Only Echo.

Wait until Thursday for the PTR to update. Then maybe the week after it’ll go live as well as Echo.

If I remember rightly, balance changes are being put on the experimental card from now on. This is on the live server. So, hypothetically, this update could have been balance changes on the experimental card.

Balance changes don’t go to PTR anymore, they go to Experimental Card on live. They’ve said this multiple times.

The point still remains, PTR/Experimental usually goes live on Thursdays. So until then, there’s nothing to patch in.
