    Happy September, everyone!

    We just released our biggest patch yet and are closer than ever to releasing the game. Our next milestone (soon™) is an Early Access launch on Steam.

    We're looking for an experienced video editor to help with the Legion TD 2 Launch Trailer. Check out our old teaser trailer - if you can do better, get in touch with us: jobs@autoattack.net

    Partying, Matchmaking, Profiles, & Elo

    Big news! As of today, you can officially party with friends, play matchmade games, climb the Elo ladder, and view your stats.

    the new elo system and leaderboard system is awesome. I challenged some friends to play and we were totally hyped about the leaderboards.
    Is it possible to still back the game? I would love the early backer reward in addition to the alpha badge :D
