I’ve arrived in Seattle and we’re play testing the new build. I must say, the new game modes are REALLY fun.
One tweak we made today is that controlling flags will cause war score to go up. Citadel upgrades will cost a certain amount of gold to purchase and require a certain war score to be available to purchase. The combination makes the game play a lot more fun. It’s hard to describe but those of you in the beta will see soon.
Our goal remains to get a build up this week. We’re still struggling to improve the NAT negotiation features so that multiplayer is a lot smoother – that’s why we have the public beta so that it’s not after release we’re dealing with that.
