    Let's face it they pretty much blindsided us again by not telling us beforehand about changes, the last time this happened they added the new boxes and people were unhappy.

    Honestly the item changes themselves are fine but not giving players time to get use to the adjust that the whole game is changing with huge items changes and hero changes is ridiculous.It feels like SEMC don't trust us anymore.

    On one hand they give almost nothing to be hyped and complain about ruining their hype when someone leaks info, on the other hand if we get leaks the leaker get severely punished.

    Even if they couldn't tell us what the items changes are they could have told us that we are changing the items or the largeness of this patch.

    The point is to spend the entire update figuring out so people won't realize they're doing the same shit again.

    Why would they tell you the changes beforehand, this is not Clash Royale.
    Honestly, we have a full streaming week of seeing the new stuff, and youtube, and the fact adjustments are minor.

    Firstly there were scheduled release of teasers, both of new items, new hero and skins throughout the patch - that might not have generated hype for you, but it did for plenty of others you only have to look at the posts on twitter around the Churnwalker reveal to see this.

    I think what you are saying is you want to know much more sooner.

    Unfortunately the time frames honestly don’t allow for this - while they may have an idea what they want to do they don’t want to hype it until they have tested it and are happy with it - for example this patch the PBE saw 3 very distinctive attempts at achieving one particular overall goal - if they had started hyping the first one before we found the cancerous way to abuse it (and my god was it cancerous) it would have been disasterous. Likewise there were several iterations of possible new items tested and so on.

    Changes for the patch are usually locked the week before the patch is released ie at about the same time as they greenlight the PBE for streamers to share with the public.

    But with the new items they knew they needed to make changes they already planned on doing it so there no harm in telling us about it since it highly unlikely they not going to do it

    Maybe this is true I regard to 2.8 where everything was sudden. But my God the teasers for 2.9 have been hype inducing. I wrote a post specifically called "SEMC's Recent teaser work has been phenomenal" because of how much speculation there was around the new items and heroes. The item teasers specifically are great because they lightly tease what the item does.

    I realize the overal major changes to vision and shield feel sudden. But that's probably because they are only finalized last minuet.

    Agreed.

    Also update will hit soon. Where are the freaking patchnotes. We need to be able to read those before playing the update. If the update hits tomorrow I would have wanted the patchnotes yesterday.

    Especially with a total rework of the crystaltree, new items and other mechanics...

    The teasers were annoying AF. Like someone flirting the entire time and nether following through.

    Leaks were better than whatever Semc has put out.but they killed the leaks so no hype...
    I might have been hyped if I had time to read all of this and think it through!!!

    Neh lets's keep players in the dark forever and hit them with a sledgehammer. Didn't see that coming? It was dark and you are swinging a freaking mallet at me? Are you daft?

    I guarantee you won't see the new crystal trees until the patch because they don't have time

    The more changes the longer the patchnotes the longer it takes to compile, check, translate and release them.
