Valiance Online previews its maps as it hunts down bugs

Where are the bugs hiding?!

Hunting down bugs in a video game is not the same as hunting down enemies. That’s true even if the bug is a severe one, like the one that Valiance Online is currently trying to fix up wherein sometimes the client crashes when projectiles strike an enemy. This is a rather significant bug in a game where you expect lots of characters to fight with eye beams, hand beams, and other forms of beam as necessary; the developers are hard at work tracking it down.

But herein lies the problem: Since it isn’t like tracking down enemies, the developers cannot use the previewed in-game map to go to the zone where all of the bugs are located and killed them. Game development does not work that way. You, however, can check out the map and get a gander at the street layouts, which will help you significantly if you’re in the current alpha test or just look forward to signing on later. Although perhaps you should just stick with good old-fashioned super strength if you do.

Eh, still not impressed. The picture of the three heroes above look cool, but player characters look nothing like that from the streams. Ship of Heroes has my vote here. They have a more studio, and professional feel to them. Silverhelm appears to only react when players complain. Need to be more proactive. Other than that, keep it up.

But, I am not seeing the progress here, tons of work needed, and they need to be more vocal. Instead of bolting when the mmo community criticizes. Their following is small because they only dwell within the confines of their safe haven, and avoid people or sites that may critique the product.

This was a perfect opportunity for them to reach out to the mmo community

But when a few people criticized the product, they bolted and never spoke about VO there again. Tougher up a little. Can’t reach people if you are afraid of critique.

This is Valiance Online which is a different spiritual successor.

There is also City of Titans, Ship of Heroes and a few other projects.

Here’s to 2018 seeing these projects getting closer.

Bug hunting is never a stand up fight.

Good luck folks and keep at it!
