Development Revert Policy

Recommended Posts

Just writing this down for the sake of the record and transparency.

Note that with most internal policy, exceptions will exist and they are undertaken on a case-by-case basis. However, the general spirit of this policy states that:

Most major features which change gameplay to a large degree and that are merged into the Master branch (pushed live onto the server) are nominally given a grace period of 1 month post-release before making major changes/reverting is permitted.

This is due to the fact that the playerbase will take time to adjust to a new feature and for the new feature to settle into place, as it were. It is basically considered a little bit unfair to evaluate a feature that's been actively hyped up or down right after release, as the hype will affect said feature's place in gameplay. Once the hype has settled, a more fair evaluation can be conducted. Thus, the one month limit is for that purpose.
