Thanks to a great community suggestion over the weekend, we’ve decided to do something a little unusual for one of our upcoming troops… we’re going to let YOU design it!
Here’s what you need to know:
@Jainus has very kindly agreed to manage the whole process for us (it was his idea after all), which is great for everyone, because it leaves us more time to work on the game!
When Jainus kicks off a thread, you’ll find it in the Community Content area of the forums.
@Nimhain & myself will be keeping a watch on the whole process, for both balance & technical & copyright issues. We DO reserve the right to change some stuff, but it will be mostly because our tech might not allow certain traits/spells to be created (our system isn’t infinitely flexible, thanks to the iOS rules about scripting languages in apps)
The troop will be Legendary, so you’ll be creating not just a troop and a spell, but also a Legendary Trait!
When the initial design is done, it will go out to art, and you’ll get to see the various art iterations as they come in.
And finally we’ll make the troop available to everybody when it’s done in a Glory-Reward pack, along with some matching traitstones.
The whole process might take a while (art itself can be slow, and changes to tech can be even slower!) but it’ll be a nice insight into the design process for everyone.
Keep an eye in Community Content for Jainus’s first post!
