New Episode Tomorrow Maybe?

Really the only reason I ask this is because usually events, like this world boss thing, tend to happen on Tuesdays so why today instead of tomorrow? Guess I'll find out tomorrow.

    It's unlikely to appear until the 4 week War Eternal Package drops end and we still have week 3 to come tomorrow. I would expect it near 3rd/4th week of May

    I can see the Week 4 bonus dropping on the same day as the release, although 20 or 27 May seems more likely for tempo reasons.

    Regardless, we'll know soon enough.

    My sentence doesn't make sense? Well, I probably forgot to write half of it before posting.

    The reason why events have traditionally started on Tuesday is that Tuesday is ANet's designated patch day

    Actually I think it's a universal media release day.

    • every MMO I've played releases patches on Tuesday
    • new media releases (from back to CDs and DvDs to 4K Blu Ray) are on Tuesdays
    • new video games for all platforms are released on Tuesday

    I don't know who where or when, but at some point, the interested parties got together and agreed that all new things would happen on Tuesday.

    Why is that? I don't know, though maybe someone else could chime in...

    Might be a US thing, it's not the same elsewhere.

    Like all human customs, there are tons of exceptions. Said previous firm was international and all its subsidiaries (regardless of home office location) used the "Tuesday" convention.
    (Well, except when they didn't. There were always internal "customers" who insisted that their proposed feature was too urgent to wait til the next window. Still, all the IT departments scheduled changes were either Tuesdays or Weekends, the latter for when we had to shut down systems, e.g. for hardware testing etc).

    Cool. I don't consider what my country does for dvd + game releases an exception though ;)

    Of course not.
    Next week we MAY have the episode complete trailer, and a week later the episode. But it may take 1 more week also. I believe 21st will be the release. 28th is my second bet.

  • Jojo.6140Jojo.6140 Member ✭✭✭

    Next week they have to release a patch for new gemstore stuff. So either new episode is next week on 14th, or in 3 weeks on 28th.

    The best we can expect is a trailer, which I think there’s a goof chance of. But don’t expect it so that if I’m wrong you aren’t disappointed

    So not universal.

    This week will be the world boss event. Next week a build up into the next episode, followed by it launching the week after I’d expect. They won’t launch during an event designed to keep players busy in core Tyria, but also you’ve got the supply drop.

    Plus, if they launch near the end of May I can see the episode as a birthday gift (depending on how traumatised I’m left)

    Didn't we already get one?

    Or did you mean a story teaser? Because that I think won't hit until a week before release.

    It's not the official trailer for the episode yet, the trailers have a full date, show off the story content and are made public.

    The trailer is about all we may see (and no guarantees there either). With all the promo material coming out before even the trailer is ready I'm definitely getting the impression some teams slipped internal deadlines that others didn't.

    I'm hoping the haphazard delivery doesn't mean the next episode is going to be rushed with pieces missing again. In theory, taking extra time solves that problem, but in practice if you need an extra two weeks to ship something, you'd often like an extra two months to really do it justice.

    I used to guess 21st May but now I realized it's unlikely, because there will 100% be a patch on 14th May (either the Ep6 patch or a random gemstore patch) and it has never happened to have another patch only one week after (two weeks usually).
    So Ep6 is either on 14th or 28th May.
    Hope the first.

  • Zaraki.5784Zaraki.5784 Member ✭✭✭✭

    No trailer today means no Episode next week.
    Only 21st and 28th May are left.

    No trailer ,sad :anguished:

  • Jski.6180Jski.6180 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I would take a bug fix from the last balance patch over any episode as the game as some real braking bugs in it that still need to be fixed way before any new content is added in.

  • cptaylor.2670cptaylor.2670 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Given no trailer or news today, I think it’s safe to say the 28th. We may get some small gemstore patch next week, at best some more current events, and then get the trailer on the 21st. Assuming there isn’t a delay pushing it into June.

    Yes, but those are always released a week before the episode comes out, as mentioned previously. Whoever thought it possible to get one today must have completely missed the 4-week Gem Store package. It is clear that the episode won't be released until a week after the last delivery.

    It could very well be planned to coinside, so you'd get the last package just as the episode launches.
    Now it seems not, based on updates.

    And yet here we are, only 5 days away from release. I hope the Cantha prediction won't be as unfortunate. :wink:

    Oh?! Let me check the news. :o

    Edit: Oy, what a well done trailer! <3 The emotions were captured nicely, loved it. Doesn't spoil a thing about what is going to happen, though. ;)

    I hope the Cantha prediction won't be as unfortunate. :wink:

    Heh heh, we'll see. :p

  • Now that everyone knows the release date of Episode 6 "War Eternal" (it's May 14), I'm going to close this thread and redirect you to the existing one if you want to continue the discussion.
