That's not a helpful tone.

If you're talking about the pre-patch, it's a pre-patch. There are no notes to it as the patch is not in the game yet. It's just a way for Cryptic to get some of the next patch in early so that players won't have a huge download time when this week's patch goes in.

Ah didn't think of the pre patch, in that case following the tribble nots can give an idea of what may come. Not what will, because things may change, but at least an idea. Op still needs to chill.

I'm not sure if we've ever provided patch notes for pre-patching, since there is nothing in-game that is changed by it at the time of pre-patch. Patch notes for the user-facing updates usually get posted the day before, or the day of, the actual update.

Cheers,

I believe that prepatching has only ever been used for big (generally season sized...) updates before, and that we were told 'oh yeah, it's to get ready for season 5'.

So no, not patch notes as such.

There was a lot of grumbling last week when people were trying to get the new FE patch. There were so many people hitting the download patcher at the same time that it caused a log jam and people were talking a very long time to get the new patch. So Cryptic threw some of it into a pre-patch to try and cut down on the size of the file for the upcoming patch.
