Hey everyone! Welcome to the Battleplan! This week, not only do we have a couple new tidbits of information concerning the update we’ve been working on, we’ve got an up-and-coming community effort, and some juicy lore!
Last Battleplan, we gave you a little taste of what was to come. In case you missed it, we laid out a list of characters who may have some changes in the works:
· El Dragón
· Kid Ultra
In addition to those changes, the team is also planning:
· Performance Improvements
· Game Mode Improvements
· Map Fixes
· Character Bug Fixes
· And more…
As before, everything we’ve mentioned thus far is subject to change. And as always, when we’ve got more information to share, you’ll be the first to hear about it!
This week, we’re giving a little shout-out to a grassroots effort by forum member @whitedav97 (aka Davekillerish). Dave has been spending the last month or so setting up the “Battle Ready Youtube Community”, a Battleborn Youtube channel dedicated to giving Battleborn streamers a singular spot to post and promote their videos.
When asked what inspired him to create a Battleborn community Youtube channel, Dave said "I created the Battle Ready Youtube Community to unite the scattered Battleborn Youtube community. I find it hard to find Battleborn content on Youtube that isn’t a 3 hour livestream, and I thought it would be a fun idea to create a place for all Battleborn Youtubers to re-upload their content, and for the overall _Battlebor_n community to have a place where they can find and connect with all kinds of players and Youtubers alike!"
The Battle Ready Youtube Community is just getting started, so if you’re interested in posting your Battleborn videos on this unique community channel (with full credit, of course), check it out here!
Are you hungry for a little Battleborn Lore? Our Loremasters have been toiling away to bring you the latest story from Solus, and we’ve got a sneak peek for you right here.
Darkspace Operations, Part 5
"Gustav’s first experience with a Tunnel-drive had cost him a month.
Calculated correctly, the Tunnel allowed for near-instantaneous travel between seemingly disparate positions in space. However, a single misstep in conversion, one quanta of imprecision, any intrusion of human fallibility upon the divine ordainments of the equations governing the Drive, and the alchemy of traversing artificial space could stretch a momentary jaunt into an odyssey of delirium and starvation. He reflected on the cost of his error as he linked himself deeper into the car’s processes. […]"
As we established last week, Lore now has its own subforum! Check out the rest of this week’s entry here, and be sure to join the conversation with our Loremasters while you’re at it!
As some of you may know, Battleborn’s anniversary is next week. We’d like to take this time to deliver our heartfelt thanks to you, the players.
