    Hey guys!

    We wanted to give you an update on upcoming milestones and some important things happening in the AutoAttack Games family.

    Lisk is getting married to his college sweetheart in late August! He will be out for 3 weeks for his wedding, honeymoon, and move to a new state. I'm fortunate to be the best man at the wedding, and Curing will also be a guest. Curing and I will be moving out of California in late August to be closer to family. Other than that, we'll still be actively working on the game and continue making progress on new mercenaries and the 6th legion. We can't do patches for a few weeks while Lisk is out (he's the patch master), but when he returns, we'll have a large update to release all the content Curing and I are working on. We will make sure the game is balanced and stable before Lisk goes on break.

    Here's our tentative schedule:
    • July 27: v2.33 (new legion spell, Arcane rework, Russian translation, matchmaking improvements, harsher leaver punishments, major bug fixes)
    • July 30: v2.34 (Atlantean tier 6, more translations)
    • August 6: v2.35 (Atlantean tier 5, Atlantean unlocked as a legion, more translations)
    • August 9: v2.35a (stability, bug fixes)
    • August 11-12: Masters Cup II
    • August 16: Lisk goes on break
    • August 24: Legion 6 is officially announced with insignia
    • September 5: Lisk returns
    • September 10: v2.36 (2 new mercenaries, 2 tiers from legion 6, more translations, game balance, bug fixes)
    We also realized the last time we really introduced the team was in 2016 during the Kickstarter, so we wanted to introduce ourselves for anyone that doesn't know us.

    Meet the team

    That's really a good new thread @Jules for two reasons :

    Firstly, you informe about how the game will be developped for two next months and particularly inform community you can have holidays (yeah yeah you're human like everybody...sad!!! :p )
    Secondly, this team presentation make you got closer to the community and give a "social" part of this experience on Legion TD 2. It is not just a game, it is not just a company who wants to get money. This is people who are passionate by a game, who wants to communicate with their community first of all.

    I take this opportunity to thanks again the entire @AutoAttack Team for their work and also congrats to @Lisk. Hope your wife loves video games....Else this is sad for her :p :p :p

    Congrats Lisk!
    And is Curing's picture a spoiler of the next Atlantean unit? Was she getting the SEAL of approval to use his kind in-game?

    Crazy coincidence, I was wearing this t-shirt when I saw your post... I guess it's fate. Atlantean T6 is now a manatee.
    (Also shame on you to confuse manatee with a seal :p)

    Unit development is on track. We’re a little behind on the insignia, as Curing and I both just moved 4100 km across the country. Sorry about the delay.

    Curing is working hard on it, and we’ll announce it as soon as it’s ready!

    Hey guys, just started moving into my new place. I'm hard at work trying to get everything set up (Currently still have no computer, no desk, no chairs, no tables, no bed, and minimal kitchen stuff, so it'll still be some time to get up to speed).

    My current workspace looks like this:

    Jules and Curing also moved across the country as mentioned, so it will take a little time to get back to usual levels of productivity. I think I speak for all of us when I say we're all very excited to get back to work :)

    More seriously, could you tell us why you change place to work ?

    EDIT : Does it mean also you will be late on the next patch ? :(
