Come put the Harasser to a combat test and see how good it is against targets that fire back!

Oh, and check out some of our hexmap changes. The regions are now bigger so its' more clear to see what they connect to, and we severed the connectivity between satellites at a facility so the facility itself is the lane junction, not the satellites.

Guess my outfit will try to make it but I really wish these focus tests were planned more in advance and better advertised.

We want to verify we'll have the changes we want before scheduling the test.

Matt was the one who made these hex changes personally, so he deserves all the praises of awesomeness!

That's understandable of course but what about scheduling these Focus tests weekly on Saturday 19:00-21:00 UTC? These weekly test builds don't necessarily need to have all the hot new toys ready as long they are reasonably stable.
For the hot new features you can always schedule in irregular Focus tests on top of that.

In this way you can better build consistent traffic on your test server and advertise for it (in-regular game), while still keeping flexibility for testing at the pace of your development schedule.

How far off is the estimate for the release of the hex-lattice-battleflow-thinger system?
Just curious because we haven't seen anything on Esamir or Amerish yet.

Soon(tm)

Honestly it's going to take them a while to deploy it onto Esamir and Amerish considering the work that went into Indar. Unless they have already started.

It will be way easier though. Esamir has way less (and so bigger) territories compare to Indar. This make connection easier to establish.

Amerish is pretty much a lattice already with the way the terrain is done.

Think I'll be there for the 12pm test. More action with the Harasser is a perfect excuse.

Esamir is way harder to do actually, because there is no landscape to help build the lanes. Amerish is also not so good, since the landscape is completely counter-intuitive to the battleflow.

To implement the rush lanes properly, they need to do SEVERE changes to the terrain, so it's not just a question of how easy it is to come up with steady solutions for facility links.
