    Default The Spacetime Rundown | 9/10/2014



    Welcome to this week’s Spacetime Rundown. As always, this is where we recap all the latest game updates, review upcoming community events, reveal embarrassing info about our developers, and give everyone a heads up on what’s coming down the road for Spacetime.

    Game Recaps

    Legends Titles:

    Arcane Legends :
    • Planar Arena Pending Approval: The Planar Arena has been submitted to Apple for approval! But, there are still just a few more bugs to squash before we can reveal the Planar Arena to the world. We know you want it, and we want you to play it! We also want it to be PERFECT. Keep an eye on the Arcane Legends Announcements section for the most up-to-date news on its release.
    • 2X Odds Weekend: Over last weekend we ran double odds on all Arcane or Mythic items from Locked Grand Crates of the Watch! We ran into some slight issues that were quickly resolved. You can check out a forum post entitled, “Keeping the Focus on Fun” for more information.


    Arcane Legends, Pocket Legends, Star Legends, Dark Legends:
    • Double XP Weekend: We gave all characters double XP for a limited time and the turn-out was excellent. Thanks to everyone for logging in and leveling their characters faster!



    Battle Titles:

    Battle Command, Arcane Battlegrounds, Battle Dragons:
    • Research Discount: All research across our battle games was discounted by 50% over the weekend. A special thanks to everyone for taking part in the event! We received great player participation, with thousands of people upgrading their units.



    Coming Soon
    All Legends Titles (AL, PL, SL, DL):
    • Free Respec Weekend: A limited time event where you can try out new skills and stat builds!


    Arcane Legends:
    • Guild Log: Coming out in the next Arcane Legends client (after Planar Arena). The Guild Log will provide Guilds with tools to see when members come and go, who does the kicking, and more.
    • Tradeable Respec Scrolls: Also expected in an upcoming client release, you’ll be able to buy a Scroll that will enable a respec. These new Respec Scrolls will be tradeable, so you could buy one from other players for gold!


    All Battle Titles (AB, BC, BD):
    • Production Boost Sale: Receive 40% off all production boosts for a limited time!

    In each Spacetime Rundown we will introduce you to a member of the STS team and let you get to know the person behind the red name! This week, meet Matt, otherwise known as Dracknor in the forums. We asked him a few questions to get to know him better!

    Q: Tell us a little about yourself. Who are you? Where are you from? What do you like to do when you’re not working at STS? Any fun facts we should know about you?
    A: Hi everyone! My name is Matt and I am the Quality Assurance and Customer Support manager here at Spacetime Studios. I was born in Texas and have been living in Austin for the last seven years. I grew up all over the world and lived in a number of countries such as Egypt and Trinidad before ending up back home. When I’m not at work I’m taking chasing my fifteen month old daughter around the house and playing video games while she is asleep! Fun fact: I’m a licensed pilot and am rated to fly multi engine commercial aircraft!

    Q: How did you get into the games industry?
    A: I started working in the Quality Assurance department at NCSoft. My time there was extremely valuable. I worked with a very strong team and was able to work my way up to being a programmer. Since then I’ve worked at a number of other game companies before ending up at Spacetime Studios in 2010 and I’ve loved every minute of it!

    Q: What is your favorite part about working for STS?
    A: That’s easy, the people! I get to work with some of the most amazing and talented people I’ve ever worked with.

    Q: What is the first video game you ever played?
    A: That’s a tough one! I’ve been playing games for as long as I can remember. However, the first was probably something on the Atari 2600. I can tell you what my favorite game is and X-Com Enemy Unknown. It’s the first game I played that showed me the depth and strategy that games had to offer and started my obsession with gaming!

    Q: If you could be a character in any game (it doesn’t have to be a Spacetime Game), what would it be?
    A: Solid Snake. I don’t really know why other than he is just cool. He is an expert at stealth, combat, and weapons. I on the other hand lack all of these skills, however, I’m very apt at hiding in boxes.

    Q: If you could choose a power or weapon from any game arsenal, which would it be and why?
    A: Time travel from Chrono Trigger! Who doesn’t want to go back in time and see history unfold. Also, it would help me when I say something stupid to my wife.

    Q: Do you have any advice that you would give to any players out there who are also interested in getting involved with Quality Assurance or Game Support like you?
    A: Quality Assurance and Customer Support are a great way to get your foot in the door of the game industry. Because of that it means there is a lot of competition for jobs out there so you need to stand out! I could write a book on this but since we have limited space I’ll just give a quick overview. Fist, play games. Lots of them! Don’t play only one type of game, play everything! Both positions require expert gaming knowledge that can only come from a wide variety of experiences. Second, know everything about the company you are applying for. This includes reading up on their history and being familiar with all of their products. Third, become an expert at both written and verbal communication. It doesn’t matter how passionate you are if you are unable to communicate your thoughts to the rest of the team. Finally, and most importantly, don’t give up! Getting any job is hard let alone your dream job. Be persistent and treat each failure as a learning experience.

    Would have liked to see a more clear idea of when we can expect Arena. I appreciate you fixing the bugs before it's released, no sense in having Arena drop and it's unplayable. However it's nice to know if we can anticipate it at the beginning of next week or the delay is much further out. If you can clarify this it would be helpful.

    Thanks for the update. I had fun reading Dracknor's dev bio, he seems to be a really cool person
