The Release notes are already published:
Update 11.5 Release Notes – Official
- We’ve discovered that a very significant chunk of time is spent during logon to read and calculate your skirmish stats. Instead of doing these calculations during logon, we will now do them after. Your Skirmish stats will then update in the background, as you play. This should allow some characters who have been unable to login due to a timeout to get into the game. Please note, your Skirmish stats will not display correctly until all of the processing is completed after logging in. Please note: Exiting the game or logging out your character before the skirmish data has finished updating may cause your client to crash. No data is lost or damaged if this occurs.
- Fixed an issue where objects/textures would not render correctly on some machines.
- The Steed of Michel Delving war-steed appearances (Halter, Caparison and Leggings) can now be dyed!
I really hope this solves the problems I’ve had this week! I just fear the point I highlighted under General will delay the process of switching servers and switching accounts. I’ll see how that pans out…..
Monday I’ll probably need to do some tests to get on track with finding a new job. And I hope to get some more preparations done for #NaNoWriMo2013. It’s too bad I need to get back to work just when the update’s supposed to end. I guess I’ll have to wait until later that night or Tuesday until I’ve got some playtime again. What will you do during the update?
