    Hey everyone!

    We hope you had a relaxing holiday break. This was the first time Lisk and I have taken any meaningful vacation in years, and it was a great way to spend time with family, refresh our minds, and reflect on how we want to improve and grow Legion TD 2.

    In an effort to be transparent, we're listing our upcoming priorities:

    (Up-to-date list is maintained here: Major Features Priority List)

    Smurf Issue (fixed yesterday)

    • Family Sharing was being abused to create smurfs for boosting, so we've disabled it for now
    Critical Bugs
    • Black screen bug
    • Missing UI bug
    Unit Pathing & Targeting
    • Improve the logic that determines how units attack, move, and cast spells
    Game Balance
    • Legion balance, fighter balance, cross, and Mastermind improvements
    Hire a second engineer (already have someone lined up)
    • Lisk is a beast, but we need more engineering power if we want to improve the game as quickly as possible
    Localize the game
    • Build a scalable localization process that allows us to stay agile
    • Translate the game into as many languages as possible
    Server reliability
    • More uptime (fewer times the server goes down)
    • Allow the lobby server to scale to support 10x as many players
    Hire an art director (already have someone lined up)
    • Will work fulltime on improving art assets and creating the 5th, 6th, etc. legion and more mercenaries
    Begin work on the 5th legion

    We're refreshed and excited to get back to work!

    Finally something! Looks good but now let's see the execution of said plans!

    Feels like the game really needs the 5th legion sooner rather than later, to keep things moving and generate some excitement. Bugs and balance fixes are essential, but new content is needed.

    Fixed for now. People will eventually use paid smurfs to do the same. Please do something about party system abuse BEFORE it gets out of hand this time..

    Welcome back btw. You deserved your holiday, but please.. next time, let the community know when you'll return. Letting us in the dark for weeks was not a good thing to do. There were rumors on how long you'll be gone, but not any official information. That's not something any company should ever be doing tbh. Taking holidays is fine, but customers have to be aware of how long they are.

    Absolutely love this game, volunteering to help translate to swedish (if need be). Also that annoying thing that makes the game lag if it's been running too long is quite annoying :/

    I'll be honest, I can't translate anything but still happy to provide feedback/help in any way I can. The game is good as is but starting to grow a bit stagnant so I cant wait to see the next updates. Wish you guys the best!

    Hey, I know you don't like too many messages, but If you need help with the localization part, I speak fluent Jappanese if you need help later on.

    Hey Guys,

    i realy aprecciate to hear news about you guys and your upcoming work this year.
    I was realy hyped when the game was avaible for everyone and since then i played it around 250hrs, i used to play alot of Warcraft 3 and it's mods back in the days.
    However, i gotta be honest: It felt very boring lately. I play mastermind only, but i still have to pick the most balanced units to have a chance vs the basic Legions.
    I have the feeling that many units arent viable to play, unless you have the needed combos (Darkmage + Nightmare). I also feel that Daphne is realy weak compared to others while trying to make Zeus + Starcaller usefull for example, feels like a real quest.

    Im not gonna suggest anything here but i would like you guys to have a look on this. With new mechanics like Auras / other upgrade paths / attack types/ Aeo attacks / multishot attacks / poison / spells , you can make the game feel realy fresh and you can take your time to create a new Legion.

    I don't know if it's just me tho and i may have unrealistic whishes, but i wanted to give you this feedback.

    Greetings Trenetoras

    I didnt see anything on the list about the toxicity of the game, aka people being super racist in global or anything regarding punishments. its getting out of hand

    To change options out of game, you can go to your LTD2 folder, go to Config and you'll find the Options.ini. Change AnimatedBackground to Off. I don't know if this fixes your problem, though.

    I can help with localization in Russian. Of course, voluntarily, there is experience in localizing games.
