Gameplay Update: Launching Sep 10th
I’m delighted to announce that after months of development, we’re going to launch the new gameplay enhancements on September 10th.
Addtionally, the new gameplay features will also herald a new Domination season!. We due for a new season, and since things are changing so much we figured it would be better to not mess with the existing medals and winners too much.
Important Launch Notes
The migrations for the new gameplay changes are HUGE. The database has to change in about 20 different ways, some of which could take hours to process. So rather than do our typical “The site should be down for a few hours” thing, we’ve scheduled a full 24 hours of downtime. This will happen directly following the ending of the current domination round, at 9:30PM EST on September 9th. So we can expect the site will be up by 9:30PM on September 10th.
The road to Episode 3
We haven’t talked about it much, but Episode 3 has been under heavy development for months. I’m really happy with the progress the writers have made. Following the gameplay update, the integration of Episode 3 will be my primary development focus, so you’ll be hearing more about the cool things ahead.
Until then, I’m hoping these new gameplay enhancements will keep everyone busy, and keep the game feeling fresh.
Thanks again to all the testers, apprentices and regular users who provided feedback to help get this release out the door!
