Next Test Date

We are super happy with the test on Sunday and motivation is up. However, we want to flesh things out a bit more for the next test. Fixing up the logistics and preparing more maps to be ready will take time. So we've decided to not test this coming weekend. And we will schedule the next test as soon as we are ready for one. So please be patient.

As a distraction to the fact DH 8.0 isn't live, I'd like to offer a challenge to everyone. I want everyone to get a microphone and begin using it, conquer your shyness, and get more involved with communication. Play the live DH and try calling out some enemies and get used to using your voice. The 8.0 update is all about teamwork and teamwork without communication is like sex without genitals.

See you gents on the battlefield!

HUGE Success!!!

This test was a huge success and I want to thank everyone for showing up. I had a blast! Tests will continue next weekend (we need time to fix stuff up).

We managed to test (pretty much) full rounds of Lutremange, Putot, and Cambes, and even Stoumont_Cutoff at the end. All were amazingly fun and unique. As a SL there are so many things to do and we will be adjusting to make sure the SL isn't TOO overwhelmed. Also it seems voice communication is finally working. Local chat after 9 years, finally works!

Still some bugs to work out, but otherwise we are moving towards filling in missing features.

In the mean time head over to the steam discussion board and discuss ideas:

Again our 8.0 alpha change log is here:

Hope to see everyone next weekend!
