Whats up fellow Guild Members,
Today we will show you the roadmap for summer 2021 + I will show you some upcoming monthly events that we have planned.
May 1st – May 15th Release new build for “Guild-Knights” only This new build will include a lot of bug fixes and technical improvements, visual and audio improvements and of course the long-awaited abilities. We will test this version with “Guild-Knights” only for 2 weeks. We do this to ensure that we can give this build to a larger audience afterwards. End of May Release new build for all Playtester After we tested all the new mechanics with the Guild-Knights we will fix possible bugs and other stuff. So, we are planning on releasing the new build for all Playtester around the end of May. June 12th – June 26th 2nd Sponsor Card Contest This will be the 2nd time we host a sponsor card contest. You guys will have the chance to bring your own character into the game. Based on some rules you will have to create a character and a story. We will take the 3 characters that we think are best + also think are best fitting for our plans. July 2nd GoL Games – Playtester Tournament This will be the final showdown of the playtester-phase. We have already a certain format in mind – but more info on that soon. What we can already tell you is that this one will be a lot of fun. July 5th – August 8th Pre-Sale for upcoming Open-Beta Although the game is and will be free to play - we will launch a pre-sale campaign on our website for the open beta, which will be released August 28th. Why are we doing a pre-sale? There are multiple reasons for that: Generate income to ensure that everything is set up for a good start .
This includes server and infrastructure costs, hiring ourselves to make sure that we can keep working 100% on this project and also if possible, already invest in the future of the game (new cards, game-modes, translation, etc.)
Increasing the player-base. A pre-sale creates buzz for this project and therefore new players will join the Guild. For the pre sale we planned one of the coolest refer-a-friend campaigns that you guys have ever seen. This will also push the community to the next level. Rewarding early supporters. While we can generate income – we also want you guys to profit from it as well. Everything that we are going to sell will be significantly cheaper than it will be after the campaign. Also, we will exclusively give away stuff that won´t be unlockable in the future. The pre-sale will last about one month. After that we will shut down the server of the current version. And then we will come with a bang on August 28th with the open beta version of the “Tactical Battle Card Game – A Glimpse Of Luna”! August 28th Start of the Open-Beta This will be the start of something great. The open beta will include the following: 4 playable races (Arachnids, Naphas, Nordur, Tagari) 50 cards per race (44 characters, 6 equipment cards) and various alternative designs Full Game (all abilities and equipment cards) A ranking and reward system In addition to all of this - we have monthly events planned until the start of the open beta. Monthly Riddle At the 7th day of each month at 7pm CET we will release a riddle in our tavern. The first person who solves it will get rewarded with some nice merch. The first riddle will be released on May 7th at 7pm CET. Monthly Ladder One of our community members is currently working on a discord-bot with which we can track game results. Furthermore, we will have a monthly ladder, where you will see the number of games played and also the W/L record. Based on that ladder we will also have some nice giveaways. If everything works out perfectly, we can start with the monthly ladder already in May. Monthly Guide Also starting with May, we will reward the person with the highest voted monthly guide. In the tavern on our website, you will be able to post your guide for a certain topic (decks, playstyle, races, cards, soon also abilities) in the “Guide-Category”. At the last day of each month at 6pm CET we will check which post, got the most likes from the community. This person will also be rewarded with some nice giveaways.
What do you guys think about the roadmap?
