Other than Project X and Project Sun and Moon being horribly canceled, I didn't do too bad (considering half the staff and no ability to borrow money from our parent company). Organized Play basically happened, with the tournaments and the Grand Championship and all. A hard drive crash ate Napoleon and its translation, and we just haven't had it in us to do it again. Maybe I'll get a new statement together for 2011 by the end of the month.
Aww... so let me get this straight;
- LH is too much work to make. (and you personally don't like it)
- Napoleon is to boring to remake.
- Project X cancelled.
- Project Sun & Moon canceled.
- Achievement system been implemented.
- The temporary and 'Basic Stuff'. (5of7's & Tournaments are held. New Sets/EX's/updated sale items. Few lotteries, gift codes, TB's etc.)
Unless i'm missing things it seems that, except for the achievement system, not much has changed that gave Alteil any lasting improvement. I really hoped things would've been better for new players but all options in this game stayed the same. Straight up PvP, with poor transition between the 2 arena's, and a gran demanding shop to improve card collections.
Even the achievement system doesn't do much other then holding promises for better future improvements/addons. Mini games are still a dream. FM, Exp (& Gran) are still only grindable in an almost impossible arena against lvl100+. Improving/expanding beginners cardcollection are still a MM grind to then get lucky in lottery.
This review makes me sad. The attitude shown from the Staff towards change even more so.
Could you give us the criteria what you will and absolutely will NOT do please? Like how much effort it may cost you, what will motivate you to (continiou) work on something, etc. Just so when a community member thinks of a good mini-game or improvement they'll know better then to bother.
