I am flat out asking, most of the posts speculate on it, I want to know what the community thinks, me personally I think it is coming today! I see a lot of posts that it mentioned but the main point of those threads are not about season despite the fact the forum members are making it about it so hence the reason for this thread.

Did Champions have a 3.5GB pre-patch?

If they did, then this is not Season Six.

If they didn't, then this is probably Season Six.

Why? If they also pre-patched, then they got the same Zen update we did which means Season 6 is not on the roster. If they didn't pre-patch, then the Zen update is in addition to whatever we patched (most likely Season Six).

I don't think it's S6, I think this just an update on their end to prepare the servers for S6. Although, it would be sweet if I was wrong!

You know good sir, that be interesting to find out does anyone play CO ( I do but not regularly and not at all in the last month so even if they had prepatch i would't know)



Edit" Had just poped over the the CO website and its calling for their servers to be down for 7 hours as well so am assuming its not Season 6

Well they took tribble offline last night around 9pm pst so maybe they did that to get all the last minute data and yes I am hoping and speculating but maybe they took what they needed too from tribble to launch it today, now I could be wrong but 50% of me is hoping. With Stahl's twisted teaser and with the Associate Producer saying on a PriorityOne Podcast that it is coming real soon maybe its today.

Sadly I have to work at 1pm pst but I will be glued to the forums to see what you all say happens!

On the other hand, Champs DOES have a set of new veteran rewards, costumes, and Design-a-villan Alerts being released with today's patch. So whether they pre-patched or not may not be an adequate indication.

I think it's clear that the pre-patching stuff was Season 6 related, but Cryptic doesn't HAVE to turn on Season 6 yet. I'm sure they'll consider it if it looks viable, but the primary purpose for this downtime is the huge inter-office zen conversion. Champs is getting some goodies released today, so it's certainly POSSIBLE that we'll get S6 too.. but if something goes haywire, I wouldn't blame them for holding back S6 til a time that isn't "right before a weekend".

I dont know if champs had any pre patch or not, but the 3.5gb is because of season 6 as its quite large.

when we pre patch from playing on tribble, it copies over what is on tribble to the main sto folder. we have already downloaded over 3GB on tribble.

that patch would have nothing to do with co at all. they would have their own unique patch for their own unique store items. co players would not even need a 3.5gb patch just for zen anyway. that would only need to be a few MB or so. unless they have a sizeable game update due today as well they probably wont even need to prepatch anything.

the patch itself is season 6 without a doubt, whether they turn it on or not is dependant on what ever factors they have to deal with as dstahl mentioned.
