Transparency: We Can Haz It!
Our forums have been abuzz for the past month or so with speculation on the path that Goblinworks is taking to get from the Alpha Test to Early Enrollment. This blog is going to describe that roadmap in some detail. We believe that a fundamental tenant of Crowdforging is enabling the community to see "behind the curtain" and understand what we're doing on a short-term basis so that they can provide informed feedback for longer-term work.
We deployed Alpha 11 on Saturday November 1st. These are the release notes.
The start of Early Enrollment is very near. But it will not be the 30th of October.
Today we deployed Alpha 10. The critical feature of this deployment is the first iteration of War of Towers - read more about it!
The next update to the Alpha, 10.0, will begin the War of Towers. This is a key feature of the early part of Early Enrollment. It provides a variety of important features that closes a number of critical game loops. It is the most significant game system update to the Alpha yet.
