FOUNDERS' UPDATE: EXPANDED TESTING OF EKS

FOUNDERS' UPDATE: EXPANDED TESTING OF EKS

Dienstag, 18. April 2017

Hallo Krähen,

In order to get more hours of testing in on our new Castle and City building system, we have decided to give our backers/current playtesters some testing goodies. Everyone in the Beta 2 test group and above will receive one set of "woodland parcels" (including a woodland hills parcel, woodland grove parcel and woodland creek parcel), a cottage and a complete small fort bundle (with a small fort kit and a shire parcel).

House Cottage Watermarked-1024x576

These items will be clearly marked on your account as “[TESTING COPY]”, and they are only being given out for the duration of this system test. You won't get to keep them when the game is live (or even for the duration of pre-alpha), but we do invite you to add them to you Eternal Kingdom, test the building system, have fun with these assets and (as always) give us your thoughts and feedback!

Wenn ihr zu den Spielern gehört, die nicht an den Tests der EK interessiert sind, könnt ihr diese [TESTING COPY]-Ressourcen auch an andere Spieler verschenken.

Nach Beendigung dieser EK-Testrunde kündigen wir rechtzeitig die Entfernung dieser Gegenstände aus eurem Account an.

Ein Hinweis zu unseren kürzlichen Testproblemen an den letzten Wochenenden

An den letzten beiden Wochenenden mussten wir die Tests aufgrund von kritischen Fehlern in unserem Build absagen. Frankly, we are pretty disappointed. While bugs are common at this phase of development, having to cancel a test has been a pretty rare occurrence up until now -- and two weekends in a row has never happened.

Let's talk about why it happened and what we are doing to address it.

Einfach gesagt, fügen wir dem Spiel zu schnell zu viele neue Features hinzu. Many of these are things you guys know about; some are more "long leg" development tasks that we will be rolling out and testing over the next few months but require us to lay the groundwork now. Unfortunately, there is a direct correlation at work here: the more features we add, the more bugs we introduce. The faster you add them, the more they start to pile up.

Diese Woche konzentrieren wir uns daher ausschließlich auf die Fehlerbehebung für den Test dieses Wochenende. Natürlich wollen wir das Projekt stets vorantreiben, und alle Welt liebt neue Features und neue Inhalte, manchmal muss man aber auch innehalten und sich auf die Fehler konzentrieren und an einer Lösung herumfeilen. As mentioned before, we expect to go 24/7 with builds soon, and once we do that we'll add a testing server for new stuff so people can either play the known (presumably more stable) build any time -- or you can try the latest stuff on the test build whenever it is available.

We appreciate your patience as we work to get Crowfall® feature complete. Finding (and fixing!) bugs are an unavoidable part of the development and pre-alpha testing process, and we want to thank you all for your patience as we continue to make Crowfall a fantastic experience.

Thanks for supporting us!
