Quick heads up, no stream today.
It’s all on me team, and I take responsibility. I had a migraine so bad that I lost all vision and feeling in my hands yesterday and only emerged from bed at 3 pm after hours of pain and vomiting. When in office it’s easier for @Kafka to check in with me, but since we are working from home I went MIA. I apologise for any confusion caused, but I was not well enough to make updates.
Anytime I am not that level of sick I do my best to let you know what is happening, but this time it was very, very bad. I’ll work with Kafka on a check in system so she can update you if I’m this sick again in future.
Hi folks, Salty and I have both been unwell in the past week.
Because of this my focus has been more on support than on the forums in order to ensure our players are getting the help they need even though I haven’t been as available due to this, and unfortunately Salty was unwell yesterday on the stream day.
We’ll endeavour to reply to some more threads later this week, but at least one of us have been reading the forum each day and making note of anything that needs to be passed onto the team.
I’ve been speaking to Salty and at this stage next week’s stream is still planned to go ahead.
EDIT: Someone sniped me
Hey folks, the stream has had to be pushed back by 1 hour.
Hopefully we’ll see you in 1 hour from now.
Sorry about this, Salty needed to move all the streaming equipment back to her house after we’ve had announcements about a stage 4 lockdown coming into effect here.
@Ghaleon we cannot make it a priority over new content, that is not our decision to make. We will never be able to make big batches of balance changes a priority above our pre-determined development schedule.
That being said, we are currently working on a set of balance changes, but I cannot give you a time frame for when it will release. To be safe, I would not expect any within the next few months. I don’t want you to get your hopes up and be disappointed by us.
Letting you know that I will be streaming on the 1st instead of the 31st for our mythic preview stream. This is the American Tuesday, and the Australian Wednesday. I have a doctor’s appointment on the 31st, so won’t be able to stream on that date.
Thanks for understanding. ")
Melbourne is in a less strict form of lockdown, but we are still in lockdown. We are not allowed to visit the office, and if people can work from home they MUST continue doing so wherever possible.
Huge fines are in place if you don’t follow the rules.
On top of this, I haven’t streamed to a console before. I don’t have the extra half day or even full day if there are issues in my schedule to experiment, set up, and get a next Gen stream working seamlessly. Also, a progranmer having access to a testing console is much more important than me. (as a last note on this topic, we use Dev kits to make console builds. They can’t be used as typical consoles, as they are designed for development. They function a little differently.)
Our streams have always been pc, and will remain so, especially during a pandemic.
