September Progress Report 5
Hello and welcome to the final scheduled progress report.
Before you get your hopes up (if you haven't been keeping up with the blog recently), this does NOT mean the patch is almost done. Well, it is sorta, but there's still a lot of work that needs to be done. It just means I won't be posting any progress until the patch is ready. Although, if I'm bored, I *may* post some cryptic images.
Current progress looks nice. About 75% of the text has been verified. The entire story has been verified, placing the total progress at 94% or something.

All that's left are the 211 "My Unit support conversations". Oh boy... Starting next week, I'll be slaying these conversations, making sure they don't break the game. When those are done, there will probably be a few days of "final verifications", where the translators give me the final A-okay and where I make any last minute arguments about certain, sketchy phrases.
Then comes the final phase--the closed beta testing and fixing. I don't know how long this will take, but hopefully not longer than two weeks.
Just to clarify, please don't volunteer and ask to help with the beta testing, unless you're a Heroes of Shadow staff member who we accidentally left behind. We've, fortunately, got all our bases safely covered, so we don't need any help (yet). And if you're THAT anxious to play the game, I'd be slightly worried for your health X D
With everything said, I bid you adieu until the good news or a silly, cryptic post--just in case you get a heart-attack when I post again and it's not the patch.
