TTT #1: The Alpha

Recommended Posts

Our team believes that communication is key, so we are going all in and introduce you to the “Tuesday Toggle Topic” or TTT! Our weekly* newsletter about what has happened, how things work, and what’s next. We will try to keep it short (1-3 topics) and dense with information. This week we would like to share a little about Alpha Test Server and preparations involved.

Opening L2Toggle was and is no small undertaking. It took us ages to discuss and agree on all the things that come with an L2 Server. Right after that, we focused on testing and fixing bugs, but we’d need testers, and in order to get testers we needed to build the L2Toggle brand and forum. This came with its own challenges. We designed and deployed the whole infrastructure to be as dynamic and portable as possible, so we wouldn’t be locked in with one vendor or end up paying large rental fees.

After months of hard work and a lot of patience, we have a running alpha server. Alpha Wolves are hard at work testing and reporting what they’re most passionate about. GMs helping out where they can and also running their own tests. Taskboard is as busy as ever.

“Alpha has proven to be a great tool to not only fix issues prior to launch but perhaps more so it has generated a lot of discussions between the team and the Alpha Wolves.  For example, one of the topics being discussed currently is buffs.  Buffs play a huge role in any server and L2Toggle is no exception. There are pros and cons to every scenario and while we know not everyone will be happy with the server features 100% of the time, we are committed to thinking through each issue rather than making quick, knee jerk reactions.  We are hoping that the discussions generated in Alpha testing will lead to a better Beta launch where issues are then finely tuned prior to the official launch.” - Head GM @Arthose.

We are immensely proud that we didn’t give in to temptations to take the easy route, instead we stubbornly stayed the course. Alpha Server has shown itself to be more than a bug testing environment, but also an inspiration for ideas for the smooth future of L2Toggle. We want to thank Alpha Wolves and all our followers for their time and support. We have a great journey in front of us.
