This is a news for Japanese version
Article by Paulo :v on January 23, 2018

As it is very well known among the NA community right now, the site is operating less than satisfactory as of late. We have read your posts on the various community sites and groups and would like to respond to the most pressing ones with this statement.

Right now, the admins of the PDX Discord server maintain most of the site's functions: event details, JP news posts, and dungeon schedules. On the back end of things, UPC works with BetaTester, when he is around, to upload new card and dungeon information to the database.

The site is unable to update without Beta's presence, which occasionally is an issue we must face. There will be periods of time where monster and dungeon data will be unavailable as soon as NA receives them. New mechanics and monsters are very high on our priority list of "things to fix," so we hope you will be patient with our administrators.

However, above all else, you can always rely on puzzledragonx to be the most reliable source for JP news translations.

Is this site dead now? I sincerely hope not, because I love it and would have quit PAD long ago without it.

There's been some JP updates but nothing on this site in the 12-24 hours since they were posted on reddit. I guess this site is no longer "the most reliable source for JP news translations" either.

So are you guys no longer adding monsters to this database? is there another site that is still up to date?

I think the aim of the game is to tackle each dungeon on your own!
If you die then you need to figure out why and change your team or your strategy for the next run.

Normally I check out this site to get some details for a dungeon (e.g. 99 stamina) or stage. It's a great additional support to win some games, although I am not able to tackle the late end game dungeons.
Some people may call this cheating because without Internet you really need to find out the details by yourself.

So nobody should be angry if some information (for free) is not up to date.
Hope you can keep up with the info for new features and dungeons.

If I'm at home playing this is the site I have up while I play. If I am doing Multiplayer I am on this site. If I am trying to skill up my monsters I am on this site. If I am trying to figure out the best strategy for a dungeon, I am on this site. Basically I never close this site in my tabs because I am always referring to it for something while playing. I love this site and how much it adds to the game. I wish you got paid by gungho for making their game better.

I hope that everyone is doing well and the updates can happen sometime soon, but by all means take your time and keep on doing the awesome job you do.

Thank you!

I loved this site. But I’m the last week there has not been any updated dungeons. No monster collab 2, no new dungeons. If I’m running old content I come and refresh myself on the dungeon layout. But this site is useless for the new content, which is what most people are playing. I’ve been using PadGuide now but it’s not quite as easy to read as this site. However, it has the content I need, so I guess it’s goodbye padx, it was sure fun while it lasted.

I love this site. PAD is a very complicated game that requires a ton of info to play at higher levels. This site provides the information players need in a simple way. Many players in NA depend on this site to play PAD. To be honest, I'm surprised a multi billion dollar company like Gung-ho would allow this site to deteriorate so much. It obviously helps them keep and grow their user base. It's hard to believe one person is responsible for uploading all of the new card and dungeon information to the database. That just sounds like a recipe for disaster. No one can be on-point 100% of the time. Maybe it's time you added more admins with this permission. BetaTester needs to share the reins.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Thank you for the update and the sincerity in your message. I am curious if there is a specific event or circumstance that is occupying everyone's time or if the interest isn't there anymore. In short, is there a time frame until the return to 100% for this site? or maybe you can reach out to GungHo NA to see if they can arrange a handover (or $$ sponsorship)? As you can read from these comments a LOT of us (me too) need (and I mean NEED) this site in order to enjoy PAD. No PADx = no fun in-game = accelerated decline in active players. Wishing you all the best!

This site has been terrible ever since BetaTester gave that announcement that they were no longer going to invest much time into the site. It should just be handed off if it's so much trouble to get them to do anything.

PadGuide, Mantastic, and the JP sites are the only reasonable way to look up information, and I have no reason to come to this site.

Also, this entire site should be reworked, or an entirely new site should be made as the optimization and web design is so awful.

The simplicity of the site is actually why I used this site. I don't think it'd be the same if they were to suddenly change that. We don't come here for beautiful colors. We're just here for information.

There's no reason to downvote this comment, This guy is actually just voicing a lot of what the community has been has been saying and even what Paulo is addressing.

I love the site, without it... I wouldn't even bother with PAD anymore. Considering new features of the game versus the age of the site, it could do for some optimization/reworking, I wouldn't say an overhaul and finally I disagree about the web design being awful. I think its great for presenting the data that they had been working with.

I cant be mad at the devs of the site for phoning it in, the game has somewhat lost its appeal as the gacha is just brutal to get anything out of in comparison to newer games.

No problem, take the time that you need to fix the issue.

Well then maybe it's time for BetaTester to release some of his power to other admins who are still active to maintain the site. Like a voting system where any admin can file an update, and then it would be reviewed by other admins to vote for its validity, once passed the file would be updated without Beta's review.

Hey Padx-team,

Thanks a lot for this note.

I did post a few times on pad forum regarding the state of the website.
But I wanted to let you know that this by far my favorite go-to location for pad info, and I was a bit worry about it; wondering it would just be stopped altogether. Like: have you guys moved on, got bored of the game, etc....

I think I'm talking for everyone here: we completely understand that life happens, things can be busy and pad is (even if it pains me to say it) at the end of the day *just a game*; you guys did (and are still doing) a tremendous job on this website.

Again this news update is much appreciated!
Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Best!

I have the link to padx on my home screen and still open it every few days, even if for nothing more than for the chance to see a new update or whatnot. Hope you all work out all the kinks. Even with the "News" feature added in-game, PDX is still superior. Plus it's better than doing my own translations from pad_sexy's Twitter feed.

Also it's how I met Nathan, El Rayo, Greg, Striker and a bunch of other players I talk to regularly. If not for them I'd still be using ronia and struggling to beat mid-game content...

Considering how much I pay to subscribe to the site, you take as long as you need.

Beggars can't be choosers and especially not when you're still choicest.

I agree with pretty much everything everyone’s said so far, THIS website above everything else has kept me playing PaD for over four years now! The game itself only sometimes gives you a warning shot before a game-ending nuke, whenever I needed help on beating a dungeon I’d visit this site to see all the detailed attacks. And not just the dungeon mechanics, but also all the other players’ insights into move tactics and teambuilding have helped me immensely. So thank you admins, not only for updating us with all the info, but also for providing a forum which we can all communicate and improve our strategies :D Even if the newest stuff isn’t updated as quickly as usual, I’ll still check this website more often than my e-mail and probably more often than even my texts :B

The sad tamadra you put for this post matches my feeling inside from reading this post. We really appreciate you guys. I know from experience that keeping something going online for a long time with demanding fans can be really hard.

I have noticed things lacking more than before, but you guys are BY FAR my favorite source of everything.

Thank you guys for all your hard work!!

You guys have provided so much for this game and it's community that Gungoho should be stepping in to help you guys out. If you guys were not here I wouldn't have bothered to play it past 6 months and I've been playing since before echidna had her first ultimate evo. :)

JesusBrand 3 months ago ( 12.0.3 ) 
I echo this sentiment. I would never have played this game without this site. Gungho is indebted to you for hundreds of thousands of players that feel the same way as I do. Their game is very flawed (preemptive strikes without warning has got to be the most ridiculous game design I've ever seen. I almost quit until I found your sources to dungeon guides).

Anyway. Thank you.

Even when this site is lagging behind a bit, it is still superior to all of the other alternative P&D information providing sites and apps.

This site is probably responsible for like at least a quarter of GungHo Na's revenue by encouraging and supporting players.

If padx doesn't have the info for a new dungeon you can almost always find a video of someone running it on YouTube. You don't know how much the hits are and what the enemy hit points will be but it still gives you a look at what to expect. And if you die because you don't have the info...get over it. It's just a game and stamina refreshes so you can just try again.

nathan@N17 3 months ago ( 12.0.3 ) 
Agreed. You can click on the dungeon on here and even if it doesn't have the info it at least has the na and jp name. Copy and paste jp name into youtube and you can still watch and get a feel for the dungeon. For the most part you can sense when or how to kill.

Life happens, we all can respect somebody who can't update the site because of their job, family, friends, etc. Just don't stress out over it, we're all supportive of you guys. <3

I don't care what people say, PDX rocks. You provide a free service that provides the most helpful and well formatted information on PAD. More power to you!
