    @F3lix One article with categories for both is likely ideal, we're happy to piecemeal that together in the end if you are able to contribute on one difficulty and not the other.

    We're working on it right now For now, just make document and send them our way. We'll eventually open it up to standard open-edit wiki templates once we have some of them implemented to set a standard for quality and format. Thanks so much!

    It was a late night last night when we were working on this, we didn't even think about adding in translations. That will actually be amazing, we've always struggled with non-english speaking audiences due to the burden of in-game constant translation. We're adding that into the main article
  4. These vote sites are botted and paid for. They don't actually garner much traffic now-a-days either. There are other more viable alternatives that we'll engage with when we have the funds and a more developed funnel to get players in-game we lose too much traffic trying to get people into the game. 80% on the first web page alone, so we've opted to allocate funds towards improving the game and developing a better website and launcher to make the startup process smoother. Once that is all done, we'll allocate funds towards promotional content and advertisements on the newest mediums just like we did around a year ago.

    The wildcard system took us a few days to develop and it was the most hyped feature of the season 2 realm. We did not expect that. I'd consider it an accidental success, in hindsight if I had known players would be as interested as they were, I would have delegated more time to polishing and molding it. We have around a dozen systems akin to that we'd love to show you! Right now we're in bug fixing mode though! We'll likely host a Wildcard only season before Naxxramas while we whip up some new systems

    Legendary REs are another one of those things in hindsight we view as a design mistake, they were basically the development team creating builds for the players, and unfortunately this really hurt build diversity. At this point, likely the only way out is through, so we will almost have to create new Legendary REs to allow of more builds to manifest.

    Maybe! We've considered doing mini seasonal servers dubbed 'leagues' for competitive PVE and things of this sort as well. If there was adequate demand for a full PVE realm we'd consider it, but we definitely won't split our playerbase more than it is currently.

    About 10 more minutes on this gentlemen, before I get back to work!

    It is likely, but not on the docket at the moment!

    We've considered a temporary LS to Andorhal Transfer WITH RESTRICTIONS. Limiting amount of gold and things like that you can bring over, it is on the table before Naxxramas. It depends on our funds/time to fuel the development of a robust transfer system like that.

    It isn't an issue of difficulty as much as it is an matter of priority. We're prioritizing things that create a stronger foundation at the moment. Improving core gameplay rather than creating model packs.

    Team Lead Q&A #1

    The team is of the opinion that tier set bonuses as a whole the direction we took with AQ was actually really detrimental to build diversity. They were too specific and there are too few gear sets to actually allow organic build diversity to manifest. At that point, we were creating the builds, not the players. That was a mistake. We'll likely go for balanced more generic/tertiary bonuses for tier sets in the future and put the intricate modifications into talents/REs

    In the vein of focusing on core foundational design, we've been admittedly neglecting a lot of this sort of stuff. We'll try to bring it back soon!

    We want to release a full optional HD models pack that includes creatures, ground textures, player models and the like in the future, but we're just not there yet.

    Map is about 85% done. Once that is done, the programming end of it should be fairly quick.
