1.6 should release on PTS for Christmas, and reasons why!

@ZOS_GinaBruno‌ you should push this before christmas, probably the monday before, and here is why.

A) Alot of people take alot of time off during the holidays as well as all the schools are let out and there isn't much to do, so gamers will game. 2 weeks of pure testing and i promise most people will be interested in this update enough to get a REALLY good test into the system, even if it is on the PTS for a month or 2 before heading to live this is a big one and needs alot of testing

B) My work shuts down for 9 days during christmas, from the 23rd til the 2nd, and its all paid time off therefore again i will have 9 days of nothing to do and really want to test this content. As usual you have TSR looking to test the crap out of this update and help as many out as need to understand these changes.

and C) the last 2 updates were not tested completely and not given enough time on the PTS to get a good test in and get the new stuff up and running properly. Putting this on PTS during this time will completely negate this assuming that there is a team available during the time to fix the bugs and all that good stuff.

All that being said I understand ZOS probably has alot of people wanting to take time off to visit their families for christmas, but we really wont need alot, put it on PTS and let the bug reports stack up for a week or 2, and by the time they come back there will be enough work to get the new year to a good start.

    Your points are spot on! Many, many players have numerous days off during the holidays to help test. ZOS is missing the boat by delaying the PTS deployment until January.

    If ZOS is planning to deploy it during the week of January 5, then there is no reason why it can't be deployed the week of December 22. How much additional development and review do they think they are going to get done during that holiday time frame when many of them will be on vacation as well?

    Going to have to agree with this 100%. It should be dropped at a time when the majority of players can test it thoroughly. Dropping it right after that time, well, it doesn't make much sense. I'm sure they have their reasons though...

    Wait, a quality product without testing? Please rephrase this statement or add something more cause from the way I am reading it is like this: "ZOS the best way to release a product is to have less time testing it"....

    it should release during christmas break because tons of people will have tons of time to try it.

    Thats all that needs to be said.

    I agree with OP. If @SOS has a working version of 1.6, it should be released to the PTS for the holidays, even if many things are subject to change and if it contains tons of bugs that are already known.
    Wololo.

    They really missed the boat with this one. A lot of their dedicated fan base is going to be sitting through the Christmas season with little new content to enjoy. Pushing 1.6 to PTS, no matter how half baked, and giving us a solid few weeks to find bugs and issues, would have been a better choice.

    Well, I enjoy my holidays from 20.12.2014 to 04.01.2015. l believe that ZOS'll do that too.

    So: 1.6 in January is absolutely okay ;)

    They will wait till after the current renewal cycle to hope for the spate of renewals that "might" come when they do release it. So, January. I have already decided no more money from me. Sub expires in 20ish days or so. I don't see something before then that changes my mind drastically I might see them again in 2016.

    Isn't that the whole point of a BETA? Releasing it ahead of time so people can test it and report what doesnt work so ZoS can fix it?

    I don't think ZOS relies on our PTS feedback very much. PTS is more of an illusion to keep us thinking that they value our feedback before they go live.
