How goes the Progress for Y2?

84 posts in this topic

Chances are the beta will be by invitation only, like DLC 17 was.

How long would it take to implement a year 2 CoD related to other schools that our PC attends? And has any progress been made on Y2 over the past month?

Given how long Y2 has been in development already I'm pretty sure the answer is "too long".

I agree planed features that not already made it into the alpha client have a extrem high probability to be cut from the initial release. (That still don't mean that BCS never add them as year 1 got many client changes trough the DLC)

Everything is relative. 

A few month delay or even a full year to implement this is not that much compared to what we have to wait which is x years with x ∈ ]8, +∞[

I just want to see Y2. I can wait a year afterwards for the first DLC, but the Base game needs to be released. If you add a few months now, then you can add a few more months once those initial few months have passed.

Y2 Beta by christmas, or bust! ;)

Huh ?? I thought that was BCS game design philosophy ? Or did you forget  when Year  2 was few month away... in 2012 ? :rolleyes:

Does the fact that the team is considering Y3 courses mean that Y2 is very near completion?

BCS need some kind of plan / vision how everything develop for the full series and this have to be adjusted from time to time especial when things like the cut of the brew class in year 1 happen.

Giving thought how the class continue in year 3 might actual important for year 2 as well because it can show if i.e. a class is missing in year 2, what lore need to be changed or to get a general idea what spells of Y2 should be able to do.

(For year 2 it sounded that BCS initial planed to have Alchemy as a class but with the cut of Brew Class from year 1 Alchemy couldn't be in year 2 any more because the base education for it is missing.)

@Legate of Mineta: It would be wonderful if Black Chicken Studios were to release a generic screen shot from Y2: a typical calendar week, with no adjustments to the default schedule, with the character information being shown as the most generic (i.e., basic attribute numbers). Would this be possible?

Rhi;

It's certainly possible- I'll ask, but I doubt they'll release anything like that until they feel it's all locked in.

They can add whatever disclaimers they want. I am just curious about whether there have been any changes to the interface.

Well, if no picture can be shown, a description of the improvements would be nice.
