Updating Big Battles

I want to let everyone know that we are working hard, and making progress. We have the code worked out for big battles, we've adjusted animations and FX significantly to enable the battles and everything is more or less on track. In fact we're pretty excited. We're also experimenting with some ragdo...

Re: Max Raid group size

Yes, like that. And we are specifically desiging so that teams benefit from having support characters on them. Rewards are provided based on the number of plyers on the team, not on damage delivered. So adding a support player to a team increases the rewards everyone receives, and the reverse also a...

Re: June 1 Progress Report

We've struggled through a few issues since I last updated this. First, let me say that our event planned for June is now going to be in July. That's the bad news. But the good news is that we have upgraded to 4.25.1, and (with considerable effort) gotten a hi-intensity server up and running. Those t...

Re: Max Raid group size

I think I've been using the wrong language about raids. What we are actually looking at are big battles, which are open to everyone, not end-game content, and can work out differently depending upon how many players participate.

You just come and join the fight (or do not). Very casual. Very fun.

Re: June 1 Progress Report

I would just like to say that I saw some stuff this morning in the lastest internal videos that I was really excited about. We have our testing capability for the upcoming event working in 4.25.1 (well, there was one crash at the end, but it is working). Now we see a set of changes, upgrades and adj...

What Makes Big Battles Fun? Tell Us!

One of the things that developers can get wrong occurs when they start thinking that everyone is like them. To prevent this, we want to ask all of you what you like best about big battles in other MMOs. The focus in this thread is on what you like. Of course, we're sure a few things that you do not ...

Re: June 1 Progress Report

Wow, that was harder than we expected! Usually it takes us about two days to upgrade the code on a single jump (for example from 4.22 to 4.23) in Unreal Engine code. But this jump from 4.24 to 4.25.1 has been six days of incredibly complex code adjustment. And we still need to track down some change...

June 1 Progress Report

Today is June 1st and we said we are targeting June for the time of the next event -- an invasion test. Things are going well so far in our testing. But we have found a few things that cause us to pause and make adjustments. That is not unexpected, and we are still expecting to have the invasion eve...

Re: The Next Event

And the latest (since it is now June 1st) is that we are going to do an engine upgrade to 4.25 in order to resolve some FX upgrades -- the FX will be better in the latest version of Niagara from Epic Games.

Re: The Next Event

For the next event we will be showing more types of invading Nagdellains than we have shown in the past...at least six, including Nagdellian Shamans (healers).

So be warned! It will be a tough fight.

Re: Max Raid group size

Yep, more votes but pretty much the same results, with 50 being the number one pick. This sounds good, we will be able to do this.
