This initial test phase started yesterday and brought together around 25-30 players. We expected a bit more players but we are not that surprised. It was only a test phase.
We wanted to run the phase longer, hence the "pre-release" name, but we should now focus on appealing to more players in order to make that phase more relevant. We are realistic though, it's very hard for a new server to emerge these days, especially for a WOTLK server that is NOT a carbon copy of the original game (FFA).
Few bugs were encountered during this test and we had to fix some minor issues but that went pretty fine. This test phase gave us some precious insights on what to do next, whether ingame or outside of the game.
We have to work on a new and more relevant test phase. So here is what we will do:
- We will end the test phase tonight.
- Then we will focus on advertising and bringing new players to the server.
- Finally, we will open a new test phase and see how it unfolds.
