Patch Rules

Patching Rules
1. Never patch on a Friday.
Reasons:
A. The next two days are the weekend and there is no one in the office to fix all the things the patch broke in the game.

B. Lots of people don't have school/work on the weekend which means there are going to be even more customers upset with your company when they can't play because your patch broke the game.

The TF2 maps I was complaining about were player made custom maps. That's why they sucked and were full of bugs. Now you could poke fun at me for not noticing the (Custom Maps) tag on the server selection, but lots of people playing were asking if they were official maps or what. So I wasn't the only one who didn't notice.

Valve's patch didn't actually break anything so I really didn't have much grounds to use them to make a point.

Never ever ever EVAR release any software of anykind to anyone anywhere...on a friday.

There is no way I could have gotten that one wrong. Spam software should have even been able to to figure it out.
