AQ3D Combat Test

This Wednesday, the AQ3D servers will come back online with our first combat test. It will be available on the web for Members/Legends of AdventureQuest Worlds. The server side code has been completely written from the ground up. This combat system is able to do a lot more than the previous incarnation of AQ3D, BUT... this will be an ultra simple test featuring only basic attack. If you saw my Facebook video post, then you are probably excited to know that Mr. Trolluk is making a return! The new version of town is not ready yet, but we hope you will forgive the art and help us test the basic combat. We will be closely watching network, graphics, and server performance during this test. This is very much the foundation of the game. We hope you will be a part of it.

Swordsman of Worlds : Though I can't take part in this test, I can't wait to see its progress through Youtube (there's bound to be some vids by players if not the staff themselves). It awesome to know that the the combat will be more action-oriented this time around. Anyone can admit that just standing in one spot whacking away at an enemy gets stale after a while (I still enjoy AQW all the same).

Gjappy: To answer all questions at once: AQW3D is NOT the same as AQ3D... yet. The difference is: AQW3D is designed for mobile, android and PC while AQ3D was designed for PC only. Artix Entertainment is considering to merge the projects, but that is not certain. AQ3D was shelved in 2013 due to an huge external technical problem which inevitably would cause AE to remake the game completely.

Ectospectom: You just said that "members/legends" will be able to join. My aqw account has legend status but I still can't join. Do you mean that I have to have an active membership as well?

Magelord
Magelord: Is AQ3D ever coming back? I had played that since its testing phase as I was a former AQW member and I still am a StarCaptain, I think that people who have previously upgraded should be able to play AQW3D just as it has been done for AQ3D, please make some time during the phases where former "upgraders" will be able to play before release.

Swordsman of Worlds
Swordsman of Worlds : "Is AQ3D ever coming back?" No, strictly speaking. That project was scrapped when AE lost the ability to export Unity code to Flash. As for this project, I guess you could say it's a reboot. Aside from some recycled assets, they've been rebuilding this from scratch. It's better this way though, as they'll more easily be able to build the mobile versions of the game. On the topic of upgrades, I remember AE saying that the old AQ3D at the time would ultimately have no paid membership, just micro-currency (like AC's). I'm hoping that will still hold true for AQW3D.
Gjappy
Gjappy: Swordsman of Worlds explained that right. I've been the lead tester of the old AQ3D and I do not remember anything like micro-currency. Nonetheless I would support that idea as for that would make the game way more open to play.

DudesOfTheDuke: Artix if you do read this , might consider changing the camera rotation to the mouse I suppose ?
