    FAQ

    When can I play?
    We're waiting until we're absolutely confident before announcing a release date.

    Why can't you make the game faster?
    In terms of 3D art assets and technical complexity, Legion TD 2 is a monumental project. The team working on the game consists of Lisk and myself. We have awesome community members and freelance artists, but in terms of people working on the game full-time, it's only the two of us. That's not an excuse. It's just the reality. With that said, we're making great progress. The truth is that we're in the home stretch.

    Can I help beta test?
    Yes! The game will be launching in beta. By playing Legion TD 2 on launch and providing feedback, you will shape the future of the game.

    Where's my Steam key?
    If you purchased the game on Steam, the game is automatically in your Steam library. If you purchased the game on Kickstarter or Humble Bundle and did not receive your key, check your email's spam folder. If you still don't see it, post on our support forums.

    This looks great! Thanks for all the work you guys have done towards this.

    I'm just wondering if you have a time frame as to how long it will be between the different stages of beta (if there are any) and the actual release? Also does everyone who has pre-ordered get access to the beta?

    Thanks.

    Yes, we'll be updating the game guide and sharing the new art assets this month!
    Can't offer a specific time frame just yet, but here is the current plan:
    1. Internal alpha testing: Dev team only. Currently in progress.
    2. Alpha testing: Starting with a small number of testers then increasing to more people. We aren't allowing sign-ups for this, but we'd like to include active members of the forums/community, like you guys!
    3. Beta: The game launches in beta. Everyone will have access to the game. Kickstarter backers and those who pre-ordered the game will be able to play at least one week early.

    As I mention on Reddit, it would be nice to see a rotation on the background image of the client. Perhaps the ultimate tower of each race xD

    Beautiful client my friends. I think the background image should change every "x" seconds though, so the player isn't staring at a single image while they wait in a queue or wait for a party.

    Great design, I also like the Icon graphics.

    But wouldn't be there a problem if in example a streamer (~1000 viewer and more) get constantly more and more friend requests? In my opinion it would work better if you choose a "pop-Up"-window to open all requests. But It's just an idear because I saw this on the picture and it looks like the friendlist of streamer or staffmember will be full spammed then in the future.

    Keep up your awesome work!

    everytime i see the monthly update i get reassured that im not getting my hopes up for nothing.
    You guys seem to have an eye for details that makes up for the lack of a huge development team.

    The Client looks great, and a other have mentioned it's also above my expectations of an indie game.

    Keep up the good work.

    I believe it is greyed out for a reason :p
    It probably is being added at a later time, as was announced some time ago as far as I remember.
