It’s been too long since we’ve sent out a status update on the project, and direction update so we apologize for that. Over the last many weeks and months, the team has been heads down working on an array of updates for this game of War that we all love. It has been an exciting several months since launch! Many advancements in terms of the overall game have been made, but most importantly as a management team we have learned many things regarding the community and appreciate all the feedback/support you have all been providing us.
Here is what we are currently working on:
- Lost Vale Left wing – Nearing completion
- Scenario – Surprise SC event for the community
- New Major Boss event – Secret
- Encounter creation system
- New Forums – Nearing completion
- RVR Rewards and bounty – Delivered but needs to be refined
- 2D/3D weapons project – This is actively underway. The team is creating new weapons with new appearances to be released soon
- Ability Damage reverted to pure 1.4.8 – Nearing Completion
- Balance team analyzing abilities to be reverted to 1.4.8 – Underway
Regarding the recent RVR rewards system. This has been long in the making with a very strenuous amount of effort put in by the developers. Consider the release so far as a beta of the rewards system. We are working on the issues that we have already run into, and once it is completely stabilized we will be refining what rewards are given.
Also, regarding the push to 1.4.8, the reason for this is to provide the most accurate baseline/foundation for the future of the game. The current client version is truly 1.4.8, so we are getting everything back to what the client is looking for, and then moving forward from there.
Following the completion of these major projects, the team will be taking a step back to focus on Community/Player Quality of Life Changes. Bug fixes, New Player Experience, In-game progression, RvR Progression, Player life cycle (Mapping out what a player will be doing for an entire year), New launcher fully utilizing our API integration, Art team focus on creating new weapon designs, the true reversion of abilities to 1.4.8, and internal tools to make development of projects much easier. Most Importantly we will be taking a step back to focus on YOU, the community! We will be sending out a survey soon looking for feedback on what we can be doing better, and what we can be doing to keep you in the game that we all love. The largest part of our mission is to not only restore the true feel of the game we love, but also keep it driven for the community and by the community.
