This July 7, TimeShuffle hosted its first tournament for the pre-alpha gameplay. Our dedicated team answered questions on Discord in real time, with the special help of Game Producer Polly and Adolfo, Head of Social Media. Together, we organized two pre-alpha tournaments to cover most time zones.
Players had the first chance to meet our Heroes and preview their attacks, defenses on the battlefield.
We were pleased to see the first positive reviews, while also having the chance to expose minor bugs. The first players enjoyed our creative graphics and the game’s stability under pressure. Overall, we are happy to receive feedback for building a fun and exciting game, with enough challenge for a contested competition from the start to the finish.
The first testing slot at 10 AM UTC gathered 88 players, which managed to battle it out for 40 minutes. The team discovered and fixed a bug with non-Roman characters in usernames, leaving the first testers to enjoy the remaining time.
The other time slot completed was at 6 PM UTC, connecting 108 players and running more smoothly for about 50 minutes. Users had the chance to preview multiple attacks and weapons, assessing the damage, reach and potential best strategies. Players from the first tournament came back for more, and we are happy they showed appreciation for our gameplay.
The game also attracted favorable comments from the Avalanche community. We also had positive feedback from players that preferred an active game to idle mode. As a team, we also observed players quickly understood the game and started picking out a strategy to improve their ranking.
Best of all, we received feedback on how fun TimeShuffle feels for players. Since it’s our first goal to offer a fun game first, we count this as a success of our pre-alpha tournament.
We also have the first winners, with rankings for their teams. The battle was intense until the end and many competed to gain the first place. Many congrats to our winners!
