Eternal, Redemption and Genesis - the new core will blow your mind!
Greetings from the cellars of Eternal-WoW!
It has been a long time since information has been passed from the Staff Team regarding updates, progress, etc, to our realms.
Well, there have been a few mistakes in the past, so of course, topics like "The realm is dead ..." are present.
A few weeks ago, I asked you about your wishes regarding Remorse - thanks for all your suggestions.
Some of them will be done in the upcoming content! But today I want to talk about our other 3 "Blizzlike" realms: Redemption, Eternal & Genesis!
Well, first of all, I want to tell you what has happened within the last few weeks since I joined the Developer team.
At the very beginning, there was a Developer team in need of some attention. And there was a testing team, but it had confusion about its guidelines. On Blizzlike realms, I prefer the Blizzlike way, and of course this is the intention of those realms. We want to give you all the feeling of "retail".
So we have changed the testing guidelines, reinvented the Testing team (CTD), merged them with the Developer team and the result is a small family.
We also have a CTD/Developers meeting every Monday, and a CTD/Developer/Game Master meeting on the first Saturday of every month to inform the GMs so they may handle certain tickets/questions better.
Meanwhile two new Developers have joined my team and together we can create everything.
The core for Redemption, Eternal & Genesis is very old, so we have decided to use a brand new core - which brings a lot of fixes. A lot is probably an understatement. With the new core, I have invented the "Project: Blizz" - which has different milestones. The first one was to test every normal dungeon (every spawn, loot, waypoint, etc). This step is nearly done, we only have 3 dungeons left to fix. The second step is, to test every class, talent, skill, glyph, etc. The goal is to bring out a new core with fixed classes. The classes are also nearly tested, after the dungeons, we will fix them.
Yesterday I released the third step, the raid content. And this brings me to a very important point: ICC.
ICC will be done after the release of the new core, and this is of course a project for ALL of our realms.
Another important milestone for the new core is, of course, the old core. There are a few custom projects, events, etc, that we have to convert to the new core.
Within the following weeks there will be a PTR for the new core so you can join that realm and see the future of our project.
And this brings me to a very important point; We need you!
We need more testers, to test everything in the Blizzlike way! You don't need any knowledge from the retail servers. Every information is on-line in special databases and also in Youtube videos.
I also need more Developers in my team! It is also possible to train you, if you have no knowledge in programming, but we require necessary skills like logical thinking.
Well, that's it so far ... if anyone of you have an idea how I could improve my day to a 48h day - let me & Cypher know!
