Gj guys! looking so much forward to it! :) i'll be doing some streaming of the new stuff! to show of to new players :)
Looks terrific! :D
It's time to kick ass and chew buble gum, and i am all out of gum
And we are live!
Let the games begin! Thanks in advance for all your hard work!
Update look great, great job devs ! btw does anyone know how can I download the game from the website ?
so i've been trying repeatedly to play the game after the update and each time i experience crippling lag and i cannot play. Please help!
ya same thing, lag is far to crazy and I have a great computer and played before with no issues.
will take a break from the game until its better no way I will risk buying a mage to lose him in all this lag either.
Guys - we could really use more info on the lag issues - as this is one thing we haven`t been able to reproduce. Two questions:
-How good are your comps - Quad CPUs?
-Does the main menu lag that crazily as well, or just inside Online Kingdom?
-Are you using Steam version of a client or our own client?
