PAX West Panel Discussion
The discussion took place on Sunday, September 3rd in the Cat Theater, during the PAX West 2017 convention. The panel was moderated by Bicycle Walrus of DM21 Gaming, a gaming channel on YouTube.
Casey McGeever, CEO of Heroic Games, presented slides showing the key features that Ship of Heroes feels are critical to its success:
McGeever also revealed the current planned schedule for testing and community, including:
With this newsletter, our Invasion Beta Event has officially ended for now. Over the three runs, we observed that Devastators were overwhelmingly the most popular character archetypes for the event (Tankers were second), and that the community has a preference for us to make the fight more structured and less chaotic. So we are working on that, as you see in the list below.
On Saturday the 29th, we will have our third run of the Nagdellian invasion. We’ve made changes in response to the first couple of runs, and we think we have fixed most of the crashes, so come on down and see how it looks on the 29th. The invasion will be a recurring event once Ship of Heroes launches.
On Saturday we will have the first instance of our next public event: an alien invasion reminiscent of the massive invasions and task forces of City of Heroes.
