    while I agree changelogs are needed I think there are two very good reasons why they are not being posted at present.

     

    The first is some hotfixes ect dont actually effect the game are are more backend stuff and

    secondly the main reason is feedback.

     

    If they hotfix/patch something that effects the game and/or deals with a complaint alot of people have by not posting changelogs the feedback they get is unbiased and gives a much more accurate gauge to see if what they did had an effect.

     

    it eliminates the placebo effect , by that i mean if for example they have said oh we patched the lag alot of people would post yeah its alot better just because they think it should be..

     

    whereas a better indication would be to say nothing and wait for the hmmm is it me or is the lag suddenly better/worse comments to start piling in.

     

    *disclaimer this is my own personal opinion based on when i used to be in the game industry and also didnt post changelogs (ok sometimes i was just plain lazy)

    @Maacabi - there is no reason for a lack of changelogs.  I handle a multi-million dollar production environment over 200+ servers and we send logs to every customer about changes, updates and outages.

    who cares if it's a minor update, CoD:BO was always up to date on what the patch did, even if it was something small, they still notified the masses about it almost immediately.

    i just gave you a possible reason, as i said it was my opinion and might be wrong but thats what we used to do as it is the best way to gauge the effects from an unbiased sample.

    Agreed, and If I recall IW and SH on stage a few months ago said they were going to do thier best to listen to the community and do things right this time. Guess that was a lie and poor planning jsut as much as CoD:Elite will be available to everyone from day one.
