Maybe I'm just being pessimistic and impatient, but I scanned some forums about the patch not being out yet and there are some rumors going around that the patch has been delayed till the nineteenth.  I'm not sure where they got this information but does anyone know if this is true?

#2 Posted by ch13696 (4582 posts) -

Yeah it's true. I think I saw it on Shacknews last week. I can't remember what the reason was though.

@zicdab: I think they are waiting for the GOTY edition to ship and than the patch will go out. 
#4 Posted by MrHammeh (200 posts) -

You would think that this is something they would want out for the GOTY edition.  I wonder if its actually already on the disc just not available for people to DL yet.  Either way this kinda sucks.  Really been holding off playing till the patch came out and I really want to play.

#5 Posted by Crono11 (1650 posts) -

The reason it got delayed was because they needed to include some fixes to the new DLC. 

#6 Posted by Yummylee (21658 posts) -

Got no spare cash to even download the actual DLC so I'm in no rush.

if thats true that its pushed back to the 19th it will be a shame, since fallout new vegas will be in the drive that day.

Yeah, I was thinking it would make it out before the GotY edition, but unfortunately it didn't which means I won't be hitting level 69 anytime soon. I can't justify playing a year old game that I've already played the hell out of when there's an avalanche of great games coming out every single week for the next several weeks starting with Fallout: New Vegas.

Yeah, I was going to buy the DLC, but no more...

I'm in the same boat. I really want to overlevel my way through the rest of General Knoxx. But in fairness to Gearbox, there is no rush for the patch to be out for the GOTY edition. Anyone who just picks up the game is going to have a lot of playing to do before they can get to level 61 and this even becomes an issue to them
#12 Posted by Dork_Metamorphosis (251 posts) -

I already bought the DLC but am waiting to play it until the patch comes out.  I'm part of the problem.  (  ._.)

#13 Posted by FritzDude (2263 posts) -

First off, they said they were hoping to get this released before GOTY or at the same time.  
Second, the new DLC brought with it broken achievements that they would include with this patch. 
 
So to re-cap: They never said that the patch would come out the same day or days before, but they were hoping to get it out by then. Big difference. When they saw broken achievements they would also fix these in the same patch. Right now its in the final prosses of Q&A, so sometime in october yes.

#14 Posted by Schlorgan (216 posts) -

So no hard date for this yet?

#15 Posted by Zicdab (388 posts) -

I guess there is no hard date yet but I thought it was coming out around the same time as the goty edition because that's what everyone was reporting.  Guess I can't blame them for trying to fix stuff for the patch but it's not like I made up a date for when the patch was supposed to come out.  I can wait but it's going to be hard when Fallout is around the corner and I still have to play Medal of Honor, Dead Rising 2, and a bunch of other stuff.

#16 Posted by nickhimself (71 posts) -
@zicdab: It's great that the people who've purchased the game and its DLC already are getting shafted while Gearbox is waiting for the GOTY to ship.
 
I bought the Claptrap DLC thinking I'd be able to level to 69 immediately while the non-DLC owners would have to wait for the patch. I was sorely disappointed to find out that I'm stuck at 61 until GOTY is shipped. There's no point in playing this DLC until I can level as I really don't care about grinding some new weapons out.

I am willing to be it's more certification issues on Microsoft's end than anything. They probbably want the patch across all platforms at the same time, and maybe microsoft's backlog slowed it down.

#18 Posted by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

I'll buy the DLC once the patch is released.

I think there might be a soft one.
#20 Posted by Bezerker85 (39 posts) -

I downloaded the DLC but I want to wait until the patch.  IDK if I can withstand the awesomeness of the Robolution though.

#21 Posted by Bouke (1402 posts) -

A Gearbox employee posted on the 12th that the patch was in the final phase of QA... so it shouldn't be long now!

This,  I think Microsoft's cert issues are causing things to be late.  The guys said as much on the Bombcast.

Damn, again? I was looking for some confirmation but it seems like they've completely ducked for cover on this one :/ I want my level raise cap!
#26 Posted by Bouke (1402 posts) -

The patch went into certification on the 18th, so its out of Gearbox's hands at the moment.
#27 Posted by benitobb (291 posts) -

Any news on the level patch yet? I've been looking around for days now and don't believe it's up yet and Gearbox's twitter hasn't said anything. So dissappointed it's not out yet.

I think the last update was "at the end of the month" which seems really silly considering the release scheduele. Had they done it at the beginning of Oct. or maybe midway, they'd have scored at peak time during this Holliday, what with the amount of RPG's and DLC coming out this week. 
 
Edit:  http://twitter.com/gearboxsoftware 
 
People bitching about delayed patch, Gearbox reply: Hang in,  It'll be there soon! 
 
So I guess we just gotta be patient!
#29 Posted by Master_Prophet (73 posts) -
@AlisterCat:  I thought I remember reading some where that the patch is already out for the pc and ps3 versions of the game?  I could be wrong though.
#30 Posted by AlisterCat (5568 posts) -
@Master_Prophet:  Pretty sure it's not out. The newest patch I could get for the PC was 1.4, which said it allowed the DLC to be played. Nothing about a new level cap or rebalancing.
#31 Posted by KingPossum (236 posts) -

God this is frustrating me. I've been waiting since day one with two other friends for this patch to come out to clear Claptrap's Robot Revolution.  
We all bought it day one and we've all been sitting on our hands so we don't have to play through the whole DLC pack as lvl 61s. 
Not saying it's too big of a deal but I wouldn't have cared nearly as much as if they had just delayed the DLC until the patch was ready.

seriously, this shit is getting silly now.

@Master_Prophet:  played on PS3 last night, no patch yet there.

 "The Title Update is finished and in the process of being reviewed for launch. We are almost green lit across the board for this free update to be launched, but we still need just one more light to turn green," wrote Gearbox marketing coordinator Adam Fletcher. "In other words ? we're almost there! We expect that last light to turn green within a couple of weeks, possibly sooner. Once this happens, the Title Update will be made immediately available for all platforms."     
 
Well fuck that then.    
#35 Posted by KingPossum (236 posts) -

Ridiculous. a couple of weeks from now? What in the hell happened over at Microsoft that they're certs can be this backed up for a huge title. They even had the audacity to put up the On Demand version before the damn patch release.  

#36 Posted by gla55jAw (2689 posts) -

This is very annoying.

#37 Posted by Chuggsy (554 posts) -

Yeah, I bought the new Claptrap DLC because I figured the new level cap would be out a few days from it. By the time this comes out I'm going to be busy with finals... D:

#38 Posted by DiscoDuck8k (499 posts) -

Great, more waiting for what should have been released right alongside the DLC.

#39 Posted by Hooded (435 posts) -

Pretty annoyed with the wait and i'm sure if I was at the current cap and waiting for the rise to play Claptrap DLC I would be pissed!

#40 Posted by ssj4raditz (1125 posts) -

Waiting for the patch is a bit annoying, but at least I have about 237 other games to keep me busy in the mean time... God, I love the holiday release window.

#41 Posted by xyzygy (9996 posts) -

Wow, I'm glad I didn't end up getting Claptrap just yet, I didn't know that they were relying on a separate patch to up the level cap. I'll probably get it then when this patch is released.

What the fucking fuck?! What retard decided that keeping the patch till AFTER Fallout was a good idea?
#43 Posted by Icadae (103 posts) -
@Mrnitropb:  
 
Maybe the same retard who certified Fallout, hurr hurr. 
 
But yes, they shot themselves in the foot with that move.
#44 Posted by Bouke (1402 posts) -

This is getting really old; this thread is almost 3 weeks old and still the patch isn't out.... i'm pretty happy with my decision to buy another game instead of waiting to grind through the new DLC until i reach new level cap.
#45 Posted by Chaser324 (6550 posts) -

I'm still waiting to start the Robo-lution DLC, but the wait isn't really bothering me much since there are loads of new games coming out that are occupying my time.

@Bouke: Well look at the bright side, those 800 points we get at the end of November for buying 2400MSpoints worth of stuff in Oct? Going right to the expansion when the patch is finally, finally out hehe.
#47 Edited by Bouke (1402 posts) -
@Icadae:
Funny you should say that! I'm actually playing Borderlands on the PS3 and i bought the Claptrap DLC the day it came out (since i wasn't at the levelcap and i was enjoying Knoxx so much). But finishing up Knoxx i did hit the levelcap and i didn't want to jump into Claptrap DLC and waste all that XP, so i decided to wait. But after a week or so not knowing what game to play in the mean time i picked up Castlevania (also for PS3) and a MS points card. 
 
With those extra points i bought Super Meat Boy (which is awesome) and RDR Undead Nightmare (also awesome) and my girlfriend spent the rest. So i still need to figure out what i'm doing with those extra 800 points. Might spent it on Mass Effect 2; Shadowbroker DLC or the new Alan Wake DLC (the writer?) but those are both 560 points = which sucks! Too bad Plants vs Zombies is 1200 or else i would've bought that.
#48 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

I bought the GoTY version and wasn't even aware of this patch.  I'm still nowhere near even finished the main game, but sure hoping they get this out before I do.
