It's been almost a month already since we've opened atWar HTML5 Alpha for public testing.
During that time, there's been a lot of improvements and bug fixes. Many thanks go to our ever helpful testers! (alpha trooper trophies await)
Here's a quick breakdown of what's been done:
- Total bugs reported: 207
- Fixed: 147
- Open: 60
Many of you must have noticed that it feels quite lonely in the HTML5 world, due to a low number of players in it.
So, here's a few things that we hope would change that:
- Starting from today, the game chat is synchronized between both servers (Main and the HTML5 one). So you should be able to see messages from Main when in HTML5 and vice versa. These messages are prefixed with an arrow (→). You can also pr to players on another server.
- We're opening alpha to rank 4+!
- In the beginning of September, we'll transition into Beta and the HTML5 Beta server will be fully integrated with the main database, so all the SP/Elo/etc earned in it will be kept and reflected on the main website.
- From the release of HTML5 Beta, both servers will continue running alongside, using the same database, for as long as it's needed and until the HTML5 version is fully functional and is ready to completely replace the current Silverlight version.
That's it for now! And those of you who haven't already seen the new HTML5 Alpha version are strongly encouraged to do so.
