FANTASY FRIDAY XXXV
Closed Beta Impressions

Hello all! Today we will be wetting your appetite for the upcoming second CB stage with some actual shots taken from our very own first CB stage testers! These screenshots were posted in the beta testing forum and commended for publication, so check them out for an idea of what to expect!

Despite some technical difficulties with updating the game, the first CB stage has gone exceptionally well, and we look forward to starting the next. I'd like to thank our patient and very helpful first few testers - we've fixed several balance and technical problems and, because of these guys, the second stage will go a lot smoother right from the start!

In the future, this thread will be updated with more screenshots and perhaps even some war stories, as we allow select testers to share their favorite Dawn of Fantasy experiences with you.

As the beta enters its second stage, we'll allow some more testers to share their favorite screenshots and war stories with you - and hopefully, you'll get to see scenes from more than just Darathor and krabs. ;)

Also, stay tuned for some very exciting updates coming up shortly from our art and production departments!

I was hopeful we'd get CB1 screenies for today. Love the Men Heavy Knights. What happend to M Mullen on fridays? And why are there so many blue names that say scenario scripter?

You almost want to make the wrong conclusions there.

Alex was a away for a while so he took over for FFs, they both work on them now I believe, and if alex ever needs time off for anything I imagine he'll be back to doing them himself for a time.

Well, some of us do a lot more actually than our title implies. I haven't actually done much scenario scripting in quite some time. Titles aren't terribly important around here, if someone can do it and it needs to be done, we're all more than happy to get it done.

Yeah I figured that "scenario scripter" was the generic blue title on the forums. Glad to hear how capable the group is at helping move things along :) . We liked MM just wanted to make sure he was still on board since the last 3 FF's had Alex's name on them.

wow some of my screens made it up.:D I love the grand master one. Alex you even posted my quotes for the screenshots. My favorite is "Great Beta Fire of Thorndale". The light just hit the grand master at the right time and I thought it look cool, so I took the screen.

Actually most of the cb1 tester were pretty active. I actually took a lot of screenshot that I didn't post.

Actually only one of mine is me playing the Elves (tragic defeat at the hands of Darssen pic is my playing the elves). All of the others are me playing the humans.

Do we detect a potential bias in screenies here?

Alex Walz
07-16-2010, 07:45 PM
Yeah, Reverie titles aren't overly descriptive. They seem to have shuffled around a lot recently, and people like Andy and Joe would have every title imaginable.

Michael is still around, and hopefully will be for a while. :) He's just been a bit tied up lately with a bunch of personal stuff.

Well just remember that we aficionados keep track of such minor things to get an idea of what's happening behind all those happy smiles out there/\

Nice FF! I'm surprised(and happy) that one of my screenshots made it! Those screenshots of Thorndale look really cool, I'll have to burn it down myself some time.

Between the burning walls a crowd of orc battalions are desperately trying to escape the fire from their own artillery and the fire that they started.

sneaky_squirrel - Downpour
The orcs are saved by an opportune rain and the fire dissolves, failing to breach the second wall they hurry for a hasty retreat from the blazing trap set by their enemies.
