Feedback time! Apologies for the delayed post, certain topics have been rapidly evolving and I wanted to present you a clearer picture with the updates. Please share with us any thoughts, questions, suggestions, concerns or elaborations you might have. As always, please be civil to each other in the comments and keep things constructive.
The most prominent development topics that happened since the last post:
- The next step has been taken on our console port journey, and it can be considered a big one. We have entered the validation phase for some of the ports, to have outside feedback, more concrete testing and to garner experience for the process. It is a nerve wracking time period and a lot of effort was poured into it, to have the most meaningful feedback possible while still working on the rest of the porting processes.
- The upcoming map Forest had no major upheavals in terms of layout and playing feel, most of the work has continued to be focused on textures, meshes and general testing. As previously stated, a painstakingly slow process.
- The Arcade mode that was introduced in the last thread has been internally heavily discussed with its pros and cons being established and the general response from the community taken into serious consideration. It was decided to redirect the project in a new direction to not split the community further as that was the biggest potential downside. The mode was considered to be a replacement for the New-Players servers which could have mitigated the player base split but after some players count evaluation it was deemed insufficient. As it stands it is unclear what the end result might look like since many expanding ideas are being toyed with.
- A new game mode will be added to the Brawl playlist; the Sword Game. A free-for-all where everyone starts the match with the same weapon. With each kill the player receives a new weapon that is followed in the weapons list, and has to use it to score the next kill. The first player to reach a predetermined kill score wins the match.
New topics, new ideas, new criticisms. We welcome them all. Thank you all for your continued support and engagement!
